Podcast #32: Transition from College to Pro Ball and Back with Iowa’s Sean McGrath

My guest today on the podcast is Sean McGrath, who recently joined the University of Iowa baseball program as pitching coach and player development analyst.  I have known Sean for nearly 10 years, and I can say that he is as forward thinking a coach as there is.  He is a student of the game, who is always looking to expand his knowledge and grow as a person and a coach. In today’s podcast we discuss variety of topics, including:

    • Getting freshman up & running in regard to higher workloads
    • Some non-negotiables for a college ball player looking to get drafted
    • One of my biggest steals I stole from Sean to improve transfer to the mound

Prior to Iowa, he was the pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners Double-A affiliate the Arkansas Travelers, where his staff put together the 2nd highest ERA in the Texas League of 4.27. While with the Mariners, he was previously the pitching coach for the High-A Everett AquaSox and the Single-A Modesto Nuts.  Prior to the Mariners, Sean was a college pitching coach at Elon University and UMass-Lowell.

Sean is a graduate of Lafayette College (2012) with a bachelor’s degree in government & law, where he played four years of varsity baseball.
