▪ Founder/Director of Baseball Operations | North East Baseball
Sometimes, necessity spurs the most successful ideas.
Scott Patterson had coached Boston, Mass., native Kyle McKenzie during his two-year stint with the Florida Bombers, but travel baseball options in New England were extremely limited for players in the former Thayer Academy and Tulane standout’s age group. Thus, North East Baseball was founded in 2008 after Patterson moved north with his wife, a Massachusetts native.
"There were a few teams up here when we started North East Baseball, but it was nothing like it is now," said Patterson, who started the program while working at Red Tail Golf Club in Devens, Mass. "It all started with Kyle and Sahil Bloom, who played at Stanford, Mike Fransoso, Mike Montville and a bunch of those guys, and it’s kind of just evolved from there."
