Rick Peterson

Rick Peterson is known throughout professional baseball as a leading practitioner for peak performance coaching. He has a cutting edge approach to coaching and maximizing performance by combining bio-mechanics, predictive analysis, and methods to master the mental game. His track record has been chronicled in Michael Lewis' bestseller Moneyball and John Feinstein's Living in the Black.
During his 15 years as a Major League pitching coach with the Oakland A's (during the Moneyball years), the New York Mets, and the Milwaukee Brewers, he has coached Hall of Famers, All Stars, and Cy Young Award Winners including Hall of Fame pitchers, Tommy Glavine, Pedro Martínez, Trevor Hoffman, as well as Barry Zito, Mark Mulder, Al Leiter, Tim Hudson, Jim Abbott, Billy Wagner, Johnny Franco, and many others. He has also worked with many other elite athletes like Roger Clemens and Michael Jordan. Rick is currently the Director of Pitching Development for the Baltimore Orioles. As a sought-after motivational and inspirational speaker, he frequently appears on national radio and television shows--ESPN, Bloomberg TV, MLB (Major League Baseball) Network, Fox Business, Wharton Moneyball on Sirius XM--to share his expertise.
Always innovative and cutting edge in his approach, Rick is a pioneer in saber metrics and biomechanical analysis to keep pitchers healthy and reduce injury. He was awarded the Dr. Andrews Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Sports Medicine Institute, the Cal Ripkin, Sr. Player Development Award from the Baltimore Orioles, and Charlie Lubin Coach of the Year Award with the Chicago White Sox.
What is well-known among his players, but was a secret until Crunch Time, is Rick's expertise with the mental side of the game. He is a master coach in helping others reframe situations to achieve greater success and maximize their potential.
Rick believes that giving back is a critical ingredient to success; he volunteers with numerous charities and is a United Nations NGO Representative and Peace Ambassador with a global humanitarian foundation.
He has three sons and lives at the beach in New Jersey with his wife, Lelia.
Rick is a sought-after keynote speaker who enjoys speaking with audiences of all sizes. He shares his expertise and reframes people's thinking through a wealth of engaging stories and coaching methods. He speaks on coaching, peak performance, leadership, innovation, performing under pressure, leadership lessons from Moneyball, reframing, and predictive analytics.
