Driveline’s Kyle Boddy Interested In Major League Role

In a blog post he unveiled on Sunday, June 23, Boddy announced that he would be open to interviewing for pitching coordinator or pitching director roles for major league teams. It seems likely that Boddy will find a potential fit—in the day since he posted the blog he said he’s already heard from seven different MLB organizations.

Last offseason, Driveline Baseball has a significant exodus of top instructors who left for jobs in pro ball, or in the case of Phillies hitting coordinator Jason Ochart, took a new job in pro ball while remaining with Driveline as well. At the time, Boddy said that the next six months would be the most important in Driveline’s history, as either the facility would develop the systems to properly replace the talent drain or it would suffer a setback.

Six months later, Driveline Baseball has developed a certification system that will allow coaches to go through training to be “Driveline certified.” While the system is now a public-facing one, it was first developed to ensure that the facility could consistently train instructors internally. The program is now at a point where Boddy is willing to consider taking on a new, outside role.

“What has changed is I think Driveline Baseball is in a good stable spot,” Boddy said. “We have 52 people working at Driveline. It’s in a good spot and well organized. I can take a step back and start working on my professional aspirations.”

“What has changed is I think Ben Lindbergh and Travis Sawchick have sent my market value through the roof,” Boddy said.

I'm interested in a no show job. Pretty much any industry will do.

It's the least we can do for him, after his father was repeatedly murdered in the game of Clue.
