He trains six days a week and participates in live at-bats against professional hitters.
He has used his experience at Driveline to improve as a player – he struck out six batters and allowed just one hit in four innings for the Driveline team – and as a coach. He served as head coach of the Driveline 11-Under team and he worked with other athletes between the ages of 9 and 16.
In addition, Cade provided in-depth data analysis for the Purdue baseball team during his collegiate years. He would be interested in assisting the coaching staff of any team he plays for.
Cade wants to get back into the game as a player, and he also is very interested in traveling and experiencing new places and people.

A personal example: ~1 month ago @SCCoachCoop watched my set and showed me I was moving the weight better than I thought. Today I’m up 100lbs on that lift. No cues, no magic tricks, I didn’t get significantly stronger the only change was a belief that I could actually do it. pic.twitter.com/3sJnGj0y6U
