Brian and Connie Doyle

Brian Doyle serves with Global Sports Federation concentrating on player development, training, and curriculum. Brian signed a professional baseball contract out of high school in 1972 with the Texas Rangers. In 1976 he was traded to the New York Yankees. When the Yankees won the World Series in 1978, Brian was the leading hitter with a .438 average. In 1981 Brian played with the Oakland A’s. Unfortunately, his playing career was shortened by a shoulder separation the following year. In 1992 Brian was inducted into Major League Baseball’s Chapel Hall of Faith which has honored only 4 players for their Christian faith during and after their playing career.

Brian has broad experience in management and baseball. He was Major League Baseball National Cross-checker Scout, Minor League Manager, Spring Training on-field coordinator, Instructional League on-field coordinator, and a Major-League coach. He was involved in all these facets as he directed the Doyle Baseball Academy. Most importantly, Brian and Connie surrendered their lives to be used by Jesus Christ in 1977. Brian is an ordained Baptist Minister and has served as pastor of evangelism, provided pastoral care, led evangelistic revivals, organized Christian men retreats, and spearheaded team building forums for corporations throughout the United States. Brian brings all this to the Lord through Global Baseball, sharing the love of Christ through the game in all kinds of venues with coaches, players, and fans. Brian cannot travel extensively as he once did due to his fighting Parkinson’s Disease very bravely and serves Global Sports however he can.
