We are taking the podcast international, connecting with Singapore-based baseball coach Owen Reid of Reid Baseball. Reid is an international baseball consultant originally from Missouri. The founder of Reid Baseball, Owen has more than 15 years of experience as a player and coach. He played Division I baseball at Baylor University and Winthrop University, and upon graduating took his game overseas and hasn’t looked back. He played 2 professional seasons in Europe, a season in New Zealand, and 3 seasons in Australia. In his post-playing career, Reid has spent time as a strength and conditioning coach for the Baltimore Orioles, the director of The Hit Factory in Singapore, and taken on numerous other coaching opportunities. He currently serves as a coach on the Austrian National Team where he has helped the country move up to the European A Division, in addition to doing baseball coaching and consulting work in multiple countries and continents.
Over the last decade, Reid’s baseball expertise has taken him to more than 50 countries on five continents. Through Reid Baseball, Owen maintains a baseball coaching presence throughout Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East, working with players and coaches from beginner to elite athletes and Senior National Team players.
In our conversation, we discuss Reid’s college and professional baseball experiences, as well as break down his work as a baseball coach and consultant. We dive into Reid’s coaching philosophy and core values, two discussions that we are sure will bring a ton of value to players striving to play college baseball, and coaches looking to help players get there. Reid’s discipline and consistency has helped him build a program with values that would help any player prepare for college baseball. Don’t miss on the opportunity to apply them to your game!
