Post-University Baseball Hiatus and Return to Competitive Baseball
Following his career at Georgetown, Steve was offered opportunities to continue his baseball career by professional Independent league teams in the United States, but opted to start his business career as a management consultant instead.
While working as a management consultant in Washington, D.C., and New York City, Steve stayed connected to the game by playing in local leagues and coaching youth players in his spare time.
In 2018, Steve started his own consulting business (CoLo Consulting) and has been operating the company remotely while living in 10+ countries around the globe. Steve’s nomadic journey has taken him to Germany, Czech Republic, England, Hungary, the Netherlands, Georgia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada among other places.
In 2021, while living in Canada, Steve decided to return to competitive baseball with the Fredericton Astros, who compete in the Capital City Intermediate Baseball League in New Brunswick, Canada.
With the Astros in 2021, Steve picked up where he left off at Georgetown by posting a 1.486 OPS and hitting .457 with 5 HRs with an astounding 20:3 BB:K ratio. Following the season, Steve was named a league all-star, won the Rookie of The Year award, and finished top 3 in MVP and Defensive Player of the Year voting.
Why Overseas Baseball?
Steve is now seeking a new opportunity in 2022 with an overseas club to continue pursuing his two passions – baseball and travel – while continuing to run his online-based consulting business.
Steve seeks to bring his leadership, high-level playing, and coaching experience to help an overseas baseball team win games and develop their local baseball players.
Steve looks forward to hearing from teams that are seeking an experienced and accomplished baseball player who is comfortable living in new places.
