AboutKevin

Kevin is a retired Major League baseball player. His 16 year professional sports career was predominantly as an infielder with the Philadelphia Phillies where he played in the Majors for over 7 years. Statistically, he ranks as one of the best pinch hitters in franchise history and remains in the top 5 in pinch-hit homeruns as well as overall pinch-hits.

 

Coaching

After playing, Kevin continued his love of the game and coached for a number of years in the Phillies minor league organization. Having worked with dozens of current and former major leaguers, Kevin is well respected by players and hitting instructors alike - for his vast knowledge, fun-caring attitude, and ability to get the best from a player.

 

Following his minor league experience, Kevin advanced to Manage the Brisbane Bandits of Australia, (his former off-season team). That position led him to his next assignment where he was the hitting coach for the Australian National Team, guiding the players to qualify for the 2017 World baseball Classic in Tokyo. Kevin also was the Hitting Coach for the MLB Australian Academy, mentoring and instructing the best high school baseball athletes in the country.

 

Minor Leagues

As a player with the NY Yankees organization, Kevin proved to be one of the organizations top prospects where he was named to either the midseason All Star game, or post season All Star team in each year from 1990 thru to 1993. During the winter season Kevin was MVP and Batting Champion of the Australian Baseball League in 1992.

 

In 1994 he was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies for ex-Giants pitcher Terry Mulholland. Named one of the Top 10 prospects in the organization, he continued to aspire, making the All Star team in 1995. During that year, he was called up to the Major Leagues where he became a Phillie regular until 2002.

 

College/Jr College

In 1990, Kevin was drafted by the New York Yankees out of the University of Nebraska. One year prior while attending Canada College in Redwood City (where he is now a member of the Sports Hall of Fame), Kevin was named Coast Conference Most Valuable Player and was subsequently drafted in the 10th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers. However, Kevin decided to continue on as a student athlete where he signed a full athletic scholarship at the University of Nebraska. As a Husker, Kevin led the team in hitting and was named first team All Big 8 and All-American.

 

High School

Kevin was born and raised in San Francisco, California. He attended Lowell High School where he is also a member of the Sports Hall of Fame . As a student athlete he was twice named All League and MVP during his Senior year after his team won the league championship at Candlestick Park. After high school Kevin moved on to Canada College in Redwood City where he played for 2 years under legendary coach Mike Garcia.
