About the Author – Dr. Tom Hanson

I’m Dr. Tom Hanson, and I’ve been working with athletes for the past 20 years, including the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, and hundreds of professional and amateur athletes.

My corporate clients include Microsoft, American Express, and Fannie Mae.

Golfers, you may know Dr. Bob Rotella, the top mental game coach among PGA Tour players. He was my advisor for my Ph.D. at the University of Virginia back in ’91, so I practically got my Ph.D. in golf psychology.

I was the hitting coach at UVA, and a head college baseball coach for 7 years after that. I was granted tenure for my teaching and research performance as a college professor, then left academics to work more extensively with clients.

So I’ve been at this sports performance enhancement thing for quite some time.

Career highlights include:

* Full-time Performance Enhancement director for the New York Yankees (2001)
* Performance Enhancement Consultant for the Texas Rangers (1999, 2000)
* Performance Enhancement services for Anaheim Angels & Minnesota Twins
* Head baseball coach and tenured professor at Skidmore College (NY) (1990-1997).
* Author, “Play Big” (available March 2011)
* Co-Author of Heads-Up Baseball: Playing the Game One Pitch at a Time.
* Interviews with Hank Aaron, Rod Carew, Pete Rose, Tony Oliva, Carl Yastrzemski, Stan Musial, Kirby Puckett, Billy Williams and others for my research on the Mental Aspects of Hitting.
* Interviews with pitching greats Nolan Ryan, Tommy John, Ferguson Jenkins, Bert Blyleven and many current major league players.
* Corporate Coaching and Training for businesspeople and organizations ranging from Fortune 500 Companies to start-ups.


* Ph.D. in Sport Psychology from the University of Virginia (1991)
* M.S. in Sport Psychology from the University of Illinois (1987)
* Certified Personal and Professional Coach, The Newfield Network (2000)
* Certified Yoga Teacher, Kripalu Yoga Center, (1996)
