DURHAM, N.C. — Scott Brosius — the former Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star and 1998 World Series MVP with the New York Yankees — has been named USA Baseball’s Senior Director of Player Development.

Brosius will head on-field programming for USA Baseball’s six national teams and three national-team development programmes. The USA Baseball National Team programme is currently ranked second in the world, according to the WBSC Baseball World Rankings.

Brosius will also oversee USA Baseball’s educational resources and serve as the Field Coordinator at the Prospect Development Pipeline League, the new premier development and showcase experience for high school draft prospects announced by Major League Baseball and USA Baseball last November.

“The creation of this new position within the organization marks a significant step in USA Baseball’s commitment to player development,” said Rick Riccobono, USA Baseball’s Chief Development Officer.

Brosius said: “Along with the amazing honor of representing our country, our players will be provided with the most advanced training and technology available to aid in their development. Beyond our goal of winning gold medals, we want to equip our players to be great collegians and professionals both on and off the field.”

Brosius guided the 2012 USA Baseball U-18 National Team to a world championship gold medal at the WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in Seoul, Korea.

Drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 1987, Brosius spent 11 years in the Major Leagues and won three consecutive MLB World Series crowns with the Yankees (1998-2000).
