Dustin was recently accepted into a national instructor database! It would be greatly appreciated if any active clients would care to write a review for him at the site! Here is the link!
Sidearm nation wanted to catch up with Dustin Pease about his playing career and pick his brain a little bit. Check out what he had to say at their website:
I’m very happy to have one of my students having done so well this year for his respective school at Catoctin! He demonstrated in most games his ability to command his fastball among his off-speed pitches and work deep into games. Looking forward to continuing to work together before he begins his journey at Division I Mount Saint Mary’s University this fall.

Last night the York Revolution (in York, PA just outside of Baltimore) continued its battle for what would be their third championship in a row. My friend Steve Rosenfeld, who works for the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, had a skybox for the night and invited my family to the game (the zoo is a major sponsor of the Revs). It certainly was different watching the game as a spectator, considering I played for this team three years ago and spent each night out in the bullpen. I was, however, invited down to the broadcast booth for an interview. I also ran into an old buddy, Vince Harrison (nephew of John Shelby), who was there to pick up his championship ring from last year and throw out the first pitch. The York Revolution plays in the Atlantic League, the most elite, competitive league in independent baseball. It was honor for me to get to play for them and Andy Etchebarren just before getting picked up from the Padres. I saw a lot of familiar faces on the field last night, a lot of guys I’ve played with over the years who are still hoping to catch that lucky break and get picked up by an affiliated team. I’m so blessed to have gotten my chance. Unfortunately, the Revs didn’t pull off a win last night and so their season has come to a close. Oriole icon Andy Etchebarren has also announced his retirement this year and is handing the job over to pitching coach Mark Mason. I’ll never forget the day Andy called me on my cell phone. My season with the Wingnuts had just finished and I had just gotten home from Kansas. The Revs had another month to go in their season and they needed some left-handed pitching. Andy called just to confirm my arrival and to make I knew how to get there. What an awesome guy!
Although this season wasn’t as long as the two years prior, it’s good to be home with my wife and family. The Missions did not make the play-offs this year, but I had another solid season and got to play with a great group of guys. Right now I’m looking forward to getting back on schedule with my off-season students and seeing the progress they’ve made since last winter.
As the end of the season draws near for the minor leaguers, it’s gotten pretty exciting for a few of my buddies. Missions starting pitchers Andrew Werner and Casey Kelly have been pulled up to AAA where they spent a rather short time just before getting the call up to the big leagues. I’m real excited for both of them and hope they continue to do well. Andrew had a terrific first and second outing, as did Kelly.
