Joshua Giles

Joshua found his love of baseball at a very young age and has spent the majority of his adult life pursuing a career on the field as a professional pitcher. He pitched for NMJC and finished out his stint by closing the championship game in the 2005 JUCO World Series. That same year he signed with the Texas Rangers. After four years with the Rangers he continued pitching in the Independent League for another five years. He is currently coaching both pitching and hitting to boys from ages 9 to 18.

Joshua is able to help his players understand the importance of not only basic fundamentals and the mechanics of pitching but also gives them the skills necessary to self correct when in a game situation. The mental side of baseball is also in the forefront of his training which will give his players all the skills necessary to compete at the next level.

Kyle Gaedele

Kyle was born and raised in Arlington Heights, Illinois. As the Great Nephew of the Hall of Famer Eddie Gaedel, baseball runs through Kyle’s blood. During his senior year at Rowling Meadows High School, Kyle was declared the Mid Suburban League “Player of the Year.” After graduating from Rowling Meadows High School, Kyle was drafted in the 32nd round by the Tampa Bay Rays. Instead, he decided to attend Valparaiso University where he was granted numerous awards. At the completion of his junior year at Valparaiso, Kyle was drafted once again. This time through the draft the San Diego Padres selected Kyle in the 6th round. Throughout his time with the Padres’ Organization, Kyle was granted the title of “2x Offensive Player of the Week” as well as  “Offensive Player of the Month” in back-to-back leagues. Kyle now resides in Arizona to help others pursue their goals and dreams of playing baseball and softball.
