Ryan Leahy has experienced baseball through a variety of roles — as a former D1 and professional player, a D1 college coach, a MLB scouting supervisor, and the owner of a business designed to help high school prospects with recruiting.
Leahy joined the New England Baseball Journal Podcast to talk about his journey from a multi-sport athlete at St. John’s Prep (Danvers, Mass.) to the highest level of professional baseball.
“I love impacting people and bringing positive energy, and I think every job that I’ve been in, I’ve had a chance to do that,” Leahy said. “Hopefully the kids that I’ve had a chance to coach would say the same thing. But it’s been a wild ride already, just the number of connections. The biggest takeaway is that you never know what person could impact your life.”
Leahy is an expert on New England talent, as a former Northeast Scouting Supervisor for the Los Angeles Angels. He earned the organization’s Scout of the Year Award in 2018.
