Ari Stein wanted to go straight to the major leagues. But like many with aspirations to reach the bigs, Stein realized
he would have to work his way up the ranks.

So he’s started with local high school baseball teams, in particular, Carmel and Monterey.

Stein doesn’t swing a bat, but his work has helped raise batting averages. Without ever taking the mound, he has
helped make a pitching staff better. He practices ortho-bionomy, an alternative body therapy that he says is an ideal method to keep a baseball player’s body from breaking down.
