Kyle Wormington - Associate Director of Pitching

 

We are extremely excited to announce Kyle Wormington as the new Associate Director of Pitching at Baseball Rebellion! Some of you may recognize Kyle and that's because he's been our Director of Products since September 2018. Kyle is transitioning into the role of Associate Director of Pitching following a month-long apprenticeship with Julio Valdez. While we were lucky Kyle was right down the hall, we didn't just promote him because it was the 'easy' decision, Kyle brings a wealth of knowledge from his past experiences as an instructor, professional player, and Division 1 athlete!

We are thrilled to have Kyle transition to a new role on our staff! Please continuing scrolling to read more about Kyle and his past accomplishments/roles.
