Jake Doyle – Former USA baseball coach and MLB Youth Academy coach seeking overseas opportunties
Jacob Alan Doyle is a former Director of Sport Development for USA baseball and instructor with Major League Baseball Youth Academy who is looking to take his wealth of experience and passion for coaching overseas. In 2016, Jake got his first taste of international baseball as the assistant coach for Team Philippines at the WBC Qualifier in Sydney, Australia and his experience left him wanting more of the international baseball culture.
Jake was a four year starter with Yale University (NCAA I), where he had a lot of success highlighted by a .321 batting average in his freshman year and his 7 home runs in his senior year. In his senior year he was awarded the Coaches Award, a recognition for the player who exemplifies team unity the most.
Jake is open to all coaching positions at the youth or adult level and can also lace up the cleats as a player-coach if needed.

“Jake was a four year starter for me at Yale. He was a very good player with a plus throwing arm. He also had a big interest in learning the finer points of the game and that is why I knew he’d be a very good coach. Because of his demeanor and obvious athleticism, he will have instant credibility with whomever he coaches. He’s an eager learner and great with young people. He was very successful in the classroom as well, which is not easy to do at Yale when your sport demands so much of your time. Jake has my highest possible recommendation.”
