Cody Ivey is a utility player with experience at the collegiate and independent professional league levels in the U.S., as well as internationally in Germany and Australia.

He has worked with former major-league player Dwayne Hosey, getting training and also helping with the youth program. Hosey was highly impressed with Cody’s catching ability and his power at the plate.

During the Summer of 2018, Cody was very active. He participated in spring training for the independent Pecos League in the U.S., and then played in the semi-pro Military Baseball Organization where manager Juan Adriatico was pleasantly surprised with Cody’s catching ability. At the end of that season, Cody was briefly in the independent Empire League.

In 2019, Cody played with the Laufer Wolfe of the German 2nd Bundesliga. He spent the majority of the season behind the plate, catching 21 of the 27 games. Offensively, he averaged .265 and had .390 OBP with 10 stolen bases (and an 83-percent success rate), and he lead the team in triples.  One-third of his hits were for extra bases.

Cody also has coaching experience, having served as a coach and catching instructor for a youth club, and he was the 2nd men’s team head coach and the youth coach for the Laufer club in 2019.


Overseas Goals

Now that Covid restrictions are being lifted, Cody is looking to make a comeback. He is currently playing in Australia with the Manly Eagles of the New South Wales State League. He is looking for a European team for the 2023 season.

Dwayne Hosey

Former Coach

Here is my take and professional Assessment on Cody Ivey. Here again is a young man who has the drive and will to play the game at all cost. He’s has tenacious ability to learn and make adjustments. Very coach able and exciting young man. Personality is off the charts, and very laser focused .
Versatile body – utility player. His game time experience on the field, I’ve never witness. Cody shows some promise at the plate during live B.P. Speed is average I believe. He has a competitive edge about him. Stand up guy fun to be around.
