Brian McDevitt - Catching Instructor


Brian is a Southern California native and began his catching career in 1978.  He began private catching lessons with former St Louis Cardinals minor league catcher and Dodger coach, Mark Cresse at the Mark Cresse School of Baseball in Huntington Beach and over the next 12 years he attended every annual Winter(4 weeks) and Summer (3 Months) training camps at Mark Cresse's School. During those 12 years, Brian had the privilege of receiving one-on-one instruction with professional players such as Mike Scioscia, Rick Dempsey, Mike Marshall, Kirk Gibson, JT Snow, Darrell Strawberry, Brett Boone, Tommy Lasorda, Steve Sax, Rick Honeycutt, Orel Hershiser, Fernando Valenzuela, Mike Piazza, Alex Trevino and many other college players who went on to sign professional contracts. The staff instructors at the camps consisted of High School Varsity and College coaches from Marina H.S, Hart H.S, Huntington Beach H.S, Azusa Pacific College, Golden West College and many others. Brian became a part time catching instructor for the camp at age 13 and at age 16 became a full time catching and infield instructor.

Brian was a four year Varsity player at Servite H.S and Esperanza H.S. as catcher and also played travel ball for the Norwalk Cardinals Mickey Mantle team which won the 1989 Mickey Mantle World Series and gold medal in Coral Springs Florida.  He attended and caught for Golden West Junior College under head coach Burt Villareal.  While attending college Brian worked as a bullpen catcher for Rod Carew at his training facility in Orange County and caught batting practice, bullpen and special events for the Dodgers during the off season at LA stadium.

In 1992, Brian attended open tryouts for the Dodgers in Arizona as a walk-on for three open positions and ended up ranking 6th out of 42 catchers. In 1993, Brian joined the United States Marine Corps and ultimately joined the Marine Corps Commandants baseball team playing against the Navy at Padre's stadium in 1995.  After the Marines, Brian worked part time at the Mark Cresse School of Baseball as a catching instructor.
