Welcome to Coach Mirabal's website! I am new to the AcadeMir family, but I have been a coach for 6 years now. As you can see, I have passion for the game of baseball. In high school, I was the starting catcher for Gulliver Preparatory for 4 years at the varsity level. There, I won a state title and 2 district championships. My senior year I was offered multiple scholarships to Division 1 universities, but I decided to stay in my hometown, signing a full scholarship to Florida International University. I played 2 years at Florida International with all conference honors as a freshman. Unfortunately, my sophomore year I injured my shoulder, and I finished my college baseball career at St. Thomas University.
My teaching career started at Keys Gate Charter High School. There, I taught PE/Weight training and started the baseball program. I have a similar goal here in wanting to start a baseball academy after the winter break. My goal with my classes and the baseball academy is to establish a great foundation for fundamental skill building, competitiveness, sportsmanship, teach life lessons, but most of all having fun. I am very excited to meet each and every one of you!
