Mark Nussbeck

Pitching Instructor / Owner
Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children Reese, and Ryan. I grew up playing on the baseball fields at Missouri 3 & 2. My childhood dream of playing professional came true when I was drafted in the 29th round by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1996. Every off season when I came back home from a long season I was teaching the art of pitching to students of the game. Now I have 20+ years of teaching experience. After many years of teaching under the same roof I wanted to evolve and grow as Kansas City’s best pitching instructor. I wanted to be independent from any organization and have access to ALL players that play the game. I can help those athletes become the best they can for their organization without any mindset of that organization. So I created Premium Pitching KC.

Career History

I enjoyed an 11 year career of professional baseball, with 7 years at the AAA level. During that time I totaled 1100 career innings and over 1000 career strikeouts. I had the opportunity to face and play with players such as: Albert Pujols, Jason Giambi, Vladimir Gurrero, Mark McGwire, Cal Ripken Jr., Lance Berkman, Tori Hunter, Rickey Henderson, Alfonso Soriano, Hideo Nomo, Ruben Sierra and many others.
