Personal

Koby features five pitches in his arsenal – a four-seam fastball, a sinker/two-seam fastball, a change-up, a slider and a cutter.   His four-seamer has an average velocity in the mid-80s and has reached the high-80s (mph).  His sinker averages in the low- to mid-80s, his change up in the high-80s, his slider in mid-70s and his cutter in the low-80s.

He has been both a starter and reliever, so he can serve a club in either capacity.

Koby is a lead-by-example type of player and a very supportive team – always willing to help in any way possible.  He brings a lot of energy to a club.

He would also be interested in helping a team’s coaching staff.  As the son of a baseball coach, he grew up around the game, and his college degree enables him to coach up to the high-school level.
