REGISTER: Monday Hot Stove with Derek Johnson

OTTAWA – As part of Baseball Canada’s continuous efforts to provide coach education to our members, we are pleased to announce our second “Monday’s Hot Stove” session - an interactive gathering of coaches in a relaxed online environment with a subject matter expert.

On Monday March 30th at 8pm ET we are thrilled to welcome Cincinnati Reds pitching coach Derek Johnson as our guest.

Derek is one of the brightest pitching minds in the game and has been coaching elite-level pitchers at the college and professional level for over two decades. He is currently the pitching coach for the Cincinnati Reds and prior to that held the same role with Milwaukee Brewers.

He was named MLB Coach of the Year in 2019 by Baseball America and is a former recipient of the National Pitching Coach of the Year (2004) and National Assistant Coach of the Year (2010) from his time at Vanderbilt University where he guided the likes of David Price and Sonny Gray.
