Coach Sam Pederson (Pitching)

My name is Sam Pederson and I am from Verona, WI. When I was in High School, I played right field and pitched for Verona High School. During my High School playing days, I also played for Thundercats Baseball Academy in the summer. After High School, I was recruited to play at Mchenry County College in Crystal Lake, IL. I pitched at MCC for two years before I moved on to play at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, IL. I am currently in my third and final year at NIU where I plan to graduate with a Bachelors in Sociology and a Minor in Sports Management.  

I've been coaching and assisting in camps at NIU and Verona Little League for a few years now. I've had experience coaching pitching, fielding, and hitting. In my lessons, I want to focus on Individual Fundamentals, Mental Approaches, Technique, Goal Development, Drill for Skill, Seeking progression and Improvement, and having fun!

Edge Baseball Cancellation Policy

Edge Baseball Academy has implemented a new policy in regard to the cancellation of private/ group baseball lessons. This policy, effective April 13, 2022, will apply to both our customers and to Edge Baseball staff.

This new policy will be a structured way for Edge Baseball and our customers to control the cancellation of lessons while still allowing for unexpected events and sickness. Please read the below information about the changes in our program's cancellation policy.

 24 Hour Notice

The policy states that any scheduled lesson may be cancelled without penalty if done so at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled time by the client or the instructor. 

Less Than 24 Hour Notice

Clients will be allowed two (2) short- notice cancellations without penalty within a one year period. After that you will be automatically charged for the lesson. If Edge Baseball Academy staff makes a scheduling error or calls to cancel a lesson within 24 hours of the scheduled time this will count against that instructor. Edge Baseball staff is also allowed two (2) scheduling errors/ last minute cancellations within one year period. Any cancellations/ scheduling errors after this will result in a lesson credit to your account.

 No Show Policy

Any lesson that you do not show up for without contacting the instructor prior to the lesson time will automatically be charged as a lesson.
