I want to personally welcome you to the RedShed Baseball & Softball website. I am Trent Logan, the Owner Instructor at RedShed. My passion for baseball started like many do, at a young age. Baseball was my favorite past time growing up with Mom and Dad driving me all over the state and country to chase my dream. I started taking private lessons at the age of 11 from my career long mentor Bob Harris. I took 1-2 lessons per week and the results were incredible. I went from being an average player to playing for prestigious travel teams, countless all-star teams, Coast to Coast Baseball Team competing in Puerto Rico, and capping my Division 1 high school career by winning All-District honors while maintaining a 0.400 batting average. I was given the opportunity to begin teaching private lessons at the age of 15 from my mentor. I taught private lessons at his facility from the age of 15 through 24, a wonderful ten years.
During my senior year of high school I was faced with an incredibly difficult decision. I had honed my baseball skills for so long and attended so many college camps and showcases that I was prepared to play at the next level. The University Mount Union and Eric Bunnell were incredibly interested in me attending and playing for them; however deep down I knew I wanted to be a Chemical Engineer. While I could have went to Mount Union and transferred out to an engineering school later, this was not in the best interest of my professional career. I was forced into a nightmare. Baseball or Career? I chose career and decided to pursue my Bachelors of Chemical Engineering from The University of Toledo where I decided to forego my baseball dream and focus hard on my education.
While in college I had the opportunity to be a varsity baseball coach at Clyde High School where I came on-board as a catching coach and ended up taking a lead responsibility of both catching and hitting mechanics. I graduated college and again was forced to move away for my career.
I couldn’t stay away from baseball. I started coaching a travel 12u tournament team and grew with them up through 18u ball. I had the opportunity to return back to my hometown of Fremont, OH in 2013 where I could again enjoy my hobby with my family and friends. Due to a demanding travel schedule for work and home demands, I decided it was best to start my own facility, “RedShed Baseball & Softball.”
