I was drafted out of the
I was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 10th round of the 1989 amateur draft out of Kennedy High School in La Palma,California. I am celebrating my 20th year in professional baseball. I played with eleven different organizations over my 16 year career as a pitcher. (Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, Milwaukee Brewers, Arizona Diamondbacks, Oakland A’s, Kansas City Royals, San Francisco Giants, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Yankees) In 2000, I had the opportunity to play for the Hanshin Tigers in the Japanese Professional Baseball League where I pitched for three seasons. I also had the opportunity to play in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Venezuela. Following my playing career, I spent four years as an international scout for the Rakuten Eagles of Japan. I currently work with a sports management company. I reside in Chandler Arizona with my wife and three children.
I was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 7th round of the 1997 MLB amateur draft out of Morningside College in Sioux City, IA. I played 3 years in the pirates organization from Short Season A to Double A receiving 2 All Star Awards. After the '99 season, I was selected by the San Diego Padres in the MLB Rule 5 draft and spent 4 seasons with them, including parts of 2 seasons in the Big Leagues. After signing with the Cubs in '04, I failed a physical and had to get surgery on my throwing shoulder, which lead to my retiring at the end of '04. During my career, I played all outfield positions, and mainly centerfield. I was very fortunate to learn from some of the best players in the game including Tony Gwynn, Trevor Hoffman, and Ricky Henderson. Currently I'm a Hitting Coach in the Padres Minor League system. I'm very excited to be able to work with Huck and his awesome staff! I hope to instill in the kids all the little things I've learned through out my time in baseball, and can't wait to see where that will take them! I currently reside in Chandler with my wife and 3 girls.
