Flanders, NJ (December 2, 2020) – In The Zone Baseball & Softball Academy has announced the addition of Ramadan Mehmedi as Director Of Strength & Conditioning and Recruiting Support Manager.

Coach Mehmedi is a graduate of Sparta High School where he was a wrestler and football player for 3 years and played baseball for all 4.  He then attended Sussex County College from 2005-06 playing baseball for Todd Poltersdorf as a catcher and relief pitcher. Mehmedi transferred to NJCU for 2007-2008 where he finished his degree and completed his collegiate baseball career.

From 2010-2012, Mehmedi was hired as the Assistant Coach at SCCC under Head Coach Todd Poltersdorf, focusing on pitchers and catchers, while also providing strength and conditioning programs for all players.

In 2013, he took over the baseball program as Head Coach in the middle of the Fall season and  will now be entering his 8th year with SCCC.

“We’re really excited to bring Coach Mehmedi on at ITZ,” said In the Zone’s President Marcus Ippolito. “He’s had a high degree of success at Sussex and understands the importance of  strength, conditioning, speed & agility training. He’ll be designing programs for players of all ages inclusive of supporting our new 360 Pitching program with Coach Pinkman from Seton Hall and our ITZPowerArm program which has been an institution here since 2012.  In addition, he’s stepping into the Recruiting Support Manager role for us where he’ll be helping guide and assist players and their parents/guardians through the recruiting process. Bringing on great people who ‘get it’ is the best investment we can make for our players and students.”
