Tim Tacka, Director of Operations/Instructor
Throughout the 1980's, Tim was ranked one of the top baseball and soccer players in the Tri-state area. He was awarded an athletic scholarship to attend Cardinal Gibbons High School. During that time the Cardinal Gibbons baseball program won the MSA (now the MIAA) a conference championship. Tim was highly recruited at both the collegiate and professional levels, however, a severe knee injury ended his career. For the next 20 years, Tim became a successful entrepreneur founding/owning Tacka Motors and Tacka Properties. In 2008, Tim closed his businesses to follow his passions for baseball and the proper instruction/development of young athletes. He has coached, instructed, and consulted for several programs, clinics, and camps in the Mid-Atlantic region. With his accomplished background in baseball and business, the Redbirds recruited Tim to become the Director of Operations as well as a coach and trainer.
