Billy Zein – 27 year old certified strength and conditioning coach with big bat looking for a player-coach roll
Billy Zein is a former first baseman and outfielder for the Arizona State University club team, where he played from 2012 to 2014 after he decided to focus on his studies following two injury plagued seasons in his early college years.
The former high school Under Armour Preseason All-American is now a certified strength and conditioning coach and is focusing a career as a baseball coach while also making a comeback as a player. He has been working out regularly with personal hitting instructors to regain his old form so he can also contribute as a player for any club that signs him as a coach.
Billy has trained multiple levels of athletes; from high school future college athletes, to professional athletes to a former olympian. He also ran the strength and conditioning program for his community college baseball team and was an assist coach of a high school baseball team he trained.
Billy describes his playing abilities as being a 4-tool player which this article supports from his high school years at a Baseball Factory event. He was listed as having outstanding arm strength, hitting, raw power and defensive ability.
In addition to playing first base and outfield, he is also working on becoming a pitcher, utilizing his strong arm and good velocity. He pitched a little for his ASU club team but had trouble with control so is working on fixing some mechanical issues for the 2018 summer. At this point his pitching should not be considered as an asset for a club that signs him, but it could be a bonus for if he manages to improve his control.
Any club in need of a player-coach with a big bat and the ability to whip their team into shape is encourage to reach out to Billy with any questions or to arrange an interview.
