He played 5 seasons for the Giants and was Pitcher of the Month for May of 2002. Coached by Dusty Baker, Felipe Alou, Dick Tidrow, Lee Smith and others. Born and raised in Danville, he played on the San Ramon Valley Little League World Series team that won the National Championship in Williamsport, PA in 1991. He attended Monte Vista High School and after moving on from professional baseball in 2006 began working with players of all ages in the Bay Area. In 2008, he became the Pitching Coach at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill. DVC went to the State Championship in Kyle's first year of work, while having three pitcher's drafted in the top 15 rounds. DVC emerged as one of the top programs in the state over the next 4 seasons and led the state in ERA multiple times. After 4 years at DVC, Kyle accepted the Varsity Pitching Coach job at local College Park HS. In 3 years at College Park, the Falcons earned a USA Today National ranking of #1, won back to back NCS Championships, compiled state leading ERA and were named California State team of the year in 2015.
