Josh Keithly is a corner infielder who graduated from Pacific University Oregon (NCAA III Northwest Conference) in 2017. Last season he played in the 2nd Bundesliga Nord division with the Kiel Seahawks and received the Allstar MVP award. Josh is also a passionate coach who is looking to play and coach overseas and is willing to pay his flights to do so.
In his senior year, Josh led PUO in RBI and was a regular starter and known for his clutch hitting. He has good pop with the ability to drive the ball to all fields and prides himself on working the count and driving in runs.
On the defensive end he has good footwork, soft hands and a great ability to pick the baseball at first, all complimented by a strong and accurate arm.
Josh has been coaching youth since 2013 and would be happy to take on a role within the youth program within any club that signs him. When I am not playing overseas I am hitting and fielding coach at Saddleback Valley Christian High School and specialize in developing ball players.
“Throughout my personal experience in this dynamic sport, I have also developed a passion for coaching alongside playing. I enjoy helping and guiding others throughout their path in baseball and would like to make a career out of it.
Playing internationally helps me improve to become a better coach by working and learning in a different dynamic setting. Baseball has always been apart of my life and would enjoy encountering a new opportunity to experience playing overseas.”
