Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio Louie grew up playing baseball. Louie was by the best minds in the game.  Louie was a multi-sport athlete playing soccer, tennis and football, but by his junior year of high school he committed himself to baseball.  He was selected to play year round in Fall Ball and Summer Travel teams to which he continued to play throughout his college years.

From 1998 – 2005, Louie was the starting catcher for the Cincinnati Mechanics AABC Summer Travel team where he won three All-Star Awards in 2003, 2004, and 2005. He led his team to three CABA World Series National Finalist appearances in 2003, 2004, and 2005, and he also earned the MVP Award for those seasons.

Louie was recruited to play college baseball, on an athletic scholarship, to Tiffin University. In his junior year he transferred to Northern Kentucky University in hopes of being scouted in a bigger city. At NKU, he won a Conference Championship earning him offers to play, Semi-Pro, in South Florida. Taking the leap to play Semi-Pro, Louie attended Northwood University WPB to continue working on his degree. He graduated with his degree in Business and Management. During this time, he trained and taught at Hammer Time Performance, conducting private lessons in South Florida and Cincinnati where he coached travel baseball during that time.

In 2007, while living in South Florida, Louie was signed by Cincinnati Reds Scout, Sal Varriale, and was sent to play professional baseball for Europe. He continued to work out for two years in the South Florida, during the off-season, with numerous Major League teams (Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Tigers and Milwaukee Brewers) where he achieved his goal of getting signed professionally.

In 2009, Louie was forced to stop playing professionally due to a devastating arm injury. He now continues to train and coach for Vipers Baseball Club, Inc., and select players, in preparing them for high school, college and professional baseball working directly with College Profiles International, Inc. (www.ineedacollege.com) in assisting his ball players with their recruitment into college baseball. 

Louie is 100% committed to placing his Vipers players into colleges to fulfill their goals of playing baseball after high school.
