For more than 15 years as a former professional player (Toronto Blue Jays, Japan, Mexico, Cuba, Italy, Brazil) I have had the opportunity to work and learn a lot about the game and I have been accumulating that experience and developing my own style of coaching. I have coached the Peruvian National Team since 2017 to date in very important events, such as the Pan American Games Lima 2019, and the 2nd Caribbean Cup where we earned a silver medal. My way of managing is to create teams that work hard with good fundamentals, where each player has a specific roll on the team and is ready to execute it. I like to give every player on the team a specific responsibility in the game, and we work hard everyday to prepare them for it. My teams are based on good pitching, good defense and knowing how to manufacture runs. Something very important is that we work as a family and we never give up.

Ernis Arias

Head Coach, 23U Peruvian National Team

My name is Ernis Arias. I am the Head Coach of the 23U Peruvian National Team, active member of the ABCA, former college baseball player in the USA. I have had the pleasure to work with Kenny Rodriguez for the last three years of my coaching career, and it has been a consistent learning experience. He is knowledgeable of the game, in all the areas, regardless of his pitching background. His expertise allows him to work with the infielders, hitters, and pitchers with the same level of quality and insight. When it comes to baseball, he is tireless. He is the first on the field, and the last to leave. Additionally, he is a great combination of the old school and the new trends, he can, and will work with both. On top of that, he brings an amazing networking with him, he knows players and coaches everywhere, many of them active MLB players. Without a doubt, Kenny will be a priceless addition to any team out there.
