John Payne has been coaching youth baseball for 27 years at multiple levels during that time. Payne is a big proponent of developing talent while surrounding himself by talented and experienced coaching staff. Payne’s entire staff lives by the mantra, “If you have the will, we can help develop the skill”. The 12U Cardinal Team will also have older Nitro Players and former college players providing individual training throughout the off-season to assure each player gets out of off-season training what they put into it. Payne is a father of eight children, lives in the Indianapolis/Metro Area, and is the president of a telematics company in Indianapolis.
