Coach Slone is an Assistant Coach, Pitching Instructor, and Performance Training Instructor. Nick is also a former Twins player, in the program for most of his high school career. After his senior year of travel ball, he was asked to come tryout for a walk-on pitching spot at the University of Southern Indiana. A couple weeks before the tryout he suffered a torn rotator cuff and his career was cut short. After a few years at USI, Nick decided to transfer back home to IUPUI and finish his academics in Exercise Science with a concentration in strength & conditioning while possibly pursuing a Master’s degree in athletic training.
Nick is also an avid follower and teacher of the Driveline baseball program, in addition to other readings and programs. He enjoys being back with the Twins, and is wanting to pursue a career in baseball after college.
