I've played baseball since I was four years old and have considered myself a catcher since age nine. I graduated from Ward Melville High School in 2012. I went on to catch five years for the Division-1 University at Buffalo, starting the last 3.5 seasons. In 2017 I was named to the Johnny Bench Award Watchlist, a list comprised of the top defensive catchers in the nation. I was well-rounded defensively and received ample pro interest later in my career.


During my time there, I spent over 1750 hours of training and learning from the sports performance staff, 500 of which were in an internship setting. During this internship, I gained experience working with a wide range of collegiate athletes (Baseball, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball, Track+Field, Rowing, Volleyball, Wrestling). I've written countless programs for our team at Buffalo. I graduated in 2017 with a B.S. in Exercise Science.


Since graduating, I've worked and volunteered as an EMT, amassing over 2500 hours of patient care experience. In August of 2018, I launched @catchingmachine_performance on Instagram as a means to give back to the community that raised me. I also passed the CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) Certification as well as the CatcherMTRX Certification. I went on to coach two seasons with CatcherMTRX, the Long Island Titans and Ward Melville High School. I now am a Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist (FRCms). I train players privatleyivately and in small groups, run a catcher mobility class as well as train players online, host a podcast, youtube channel an d run a scussful instagram account!


Today, I run Machine Performance, a Baseball/Softball strength and conditioning program out of Revolution Athletics in East Setauket. I also work privately with players in catching, hitting, pitching, and fielding lessons, located in Setauket and Farmingdale. I work with athletes ranging from elementary school-age through professional players.


You can find me on social media @catchingmachine_performance or email me at kyle@catchingmachine.com.


I look forward to working with you!
