Former Central Missouri State All-American pitcher joins program as a volunteer assistant coach
Manhattan, Kan. - Kansas State head baseball coach Brad Hill announced Monday that Josh Reynolds, a former All-American pitcher at Central Missouri State, will join the Wildcat baseball program as a volunteer assistant coach. Reynolds' main responsibilities will be assisting pitching coach Sean McCann with the pitching staff as well as various administrative duties.
"We are very excited about Josh joining our program," said Hill. "Having played for Coach McCann and myself at Central, he is very familiar with our system. He is a great model for our pitchers to learn from, having been un-drafted out of high school and working his way up to the level of a 3rd round pick following his junior year of college. Having just finished up a professional career, his knowledge-base of the recent trends in pitcher development in professional baseball will be an asset."
Reynolds, who lettered from 1998-2000 for Hill's Central Missouri State squad, was a two-time MIAA and All-American pitcher for the Mules who was drafted in 2000 by the New York Mets in the third round after his junior season. Reynolds holds the career record for wins at Central Missouri State with 32, which came in just three seasons on the mound. He also ranks fourth all-time in innings pitched with 248.0 and strikeouts with 193. During Reynolds' time at Central Missouri, the Mules amassed a 132-31 record, won three MIAA titles and made two appearances in the Division II World Series.
After signing with the New York Mets in 2000, Reynolds spent five seasons in the minor leagues with stops in the San Diego and Boston organizations.
