M.A.D. Baseball Academy would like to announce our newest addition, former major league pitcher John Riedling!
The M.A.D. Baseball Academy took a huge step forward with the addition of John Riedling, a former MLB pitcher who is joining the organization as Coach and Director Of Player Development. John pitched professionally for 13 seasons, including 6 years in the Major Leagues with the Cincinnati Reds (2000-2004) and Florida Marlins (2005).
John brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding of what it takes to get the best out of a player’s ability. He has a tremendous track record of developing young talent. Prior to coming to the M.A.D. Baseball Academy, he founded the Tennessee Baseball Club where he coached numerous of players who continued their playing career at the collegiate level.
Two of his former players were drafted in this year’s MLB draft:
- Bryan Reynolds – Vanderbilt – 2nd Round – San Francisco Giants
- Aaron Maher – East Tennessee State Univ. – 38th Round
I am extremely excited to join Judd and the coaches in the Maverick organization. This program has put some quality young teams on the field over the years and I am eager to work with the players in reaching their goals and to assist the coaching staff in preparing the players to compete at a high level.
— John Riedling
