Dylan Wolchik

12u & 16u Coach

Dylan founded Ace Baseball Academy in July of 2021. Coming off the brink of the pandemic, he took a leap and chased a childhood dream of owning his own baseball academy. That dream started with 4 teams for the first year of Ace Baseball, and has now grown to 6 teams for our 2nd year of operation. This company was created to offer high quality coaching for youth baseball players. All coaches in this academy have some type playing experience at a high level. 

Prior to starting this Academy, Dylan served as the pitching coaching and assisted with recruiting at Limestone College. Dylan will be overseeing our 15u and Showcase teams and will serve as the Director of Baseball Operations. As a pitching coach, Dylan brings a work ethic and detail-oriented approach that will certainly help our program continue to grow and excel

Grant Pagan

Originally from Augusta, GA Grant comes to Ace after just moving to the Upstate. After graduating high school Grant went on to continue his baseball career at Piedmont College and later transferring to Georgia Southern. He would graduate from Georgia Southern with a degree in Civil and Contraction Engineering. While at Georgia Southern and Piedmont he had many roles, including a stint as an assistant coach for Augusta Christian in 2015 and a baseball analyst for Georgia Southern University in 2020-2021. We are extremely excited to have Grant join our program to help grow the game.


Why do you Coach?

"After my playing career ended I knew I needed a way to stay connected to the game, I think it's a great opportunity to give back to the game of baseball and stay involved with the game that I have always loved." 


Landon Smith

Why do you Coach?

"I started coaching because I love to be around the game of baseball. After playing the game for so long it's hard to imagine life without it. Coaching allows me the opportunity to help kids develop and learn baseball the right way. Theres nothing quite like seeing a player grow as a ball player and a person over the years."

Why do you Coach?
