Bobby O’Neill is currently functioning as a Pitching Instructor and Performance Fitness Trainer. He has spent the last 18 years pursuing baseball. From little league to minor league, Bobby brings a range of life lessons learned on the road to the pros. After graduating from Serrano HS (’07), Bobby received an Academic/Leadership Scholarship from the Gates Millennium Foundation to
attend Biola University. After 4 years of academics and athletics at the collegiate level, he was selected by the Minnesota Twins in the 43rd round of the 2011 First Year Player Draft.
After being released by the Miami Marlins out of spring training in 2012, Bobby was reacquired by the San Rafael Pacifics where his contract was bought out by the Arizona Diamondbacks. After undergoing minor shoulder issues in the 2012 off-season, he pitched for the Rio Grande Valley Whitewings in Texas. In addition to his athletic achievements, Bobby has been a proud member of the PFA pro workout group for the past 6 years. His experience as a PFA athlete has instilled a compassion for up and coming athletes, the inspiration to implement “up to date” mechanics and techniques to their workout routine, and a desire to equip them for whatever lies ahead.
As a Pitching Instructor, Bobby uses his experience and knowledge as a professional athlete, as well as the knowledge of Dave Coggin, to mold minds and bodies of his pitchers. He is great with kids, and works with all ages of aspiring big league pitchers.
