MLB Bullpen Catcher - Texas Rangers
Kyle’s knowledge extends beyond baseball. His unique understanding of the way the human body works and how to apply that to baseball, catching specifically, allows him to get the most out of the players he works with. Being a former Division 1 catcher Kyle understands what it takes to perform at the next level. His talent lies in being able to teach the information he has in a way that is easily understood by players and coaches at any level.
Scout - Philadelphia Phillies
I've known Kyle for nearly a decade. Of the countless players and families over the past 18 years, I've coached, scouted and mentored; Kyle has been of the most, if not the most focused, dedicated, and hard-working of them all. Work ethic is a unique talent that many claim to have, but with Kyle, it was never questioned.
I've seen Kyle transition from player to coach. His love and passion for the game prove even stronger in his interaction with young players. He brings energy to the table and can get his point across to an array of different learning styles. He adapts to get the most out of each player. As a collegiate athlete, Kyle was able to improve his mobility while gaining significant strength as well as anyone I've ever seen. With his training as a strength coach, drive for development, genuine nature, and the first-hand experience, I am confident in recommending him to players of all ages and skill levels.
Major League Assistant Hitting Coach - Cincinnati Reds
Kyle (Machine) Brennan is one of the smartest and most dedicated people I have met in the baseball world. When I saw that he put out an ebook on hitting prep work I didn't hesitate to make the small investment in order to learn from his expertise. The book is very well done, has great information for any player at any level, and takes complicated material and makes it digestible and actionable. I have already started using many of Kyle’s programming with my own son. - Tim LaMonte Assistant Hitting Coach Cincinnati Reds
Hitting Development Coach - Philadelphia Phillies. Professional Softball Player - Team Italy
I met Kyle in my freshman year at Buffalo and he was an immediate influence on the betterment of my work ethic, knowledge of the sport, and understanding of what it took to be truly dedicated to one’s craft. A starter for over 3 years, his goal was to always be the most elite catcher in the MAC conference. His character as a teammate, student-athlete and friend was always exceptional. A lot of our baseball conversations would quickly become filled with exercise science jargon and every day I learned something new from him. His teammates used to heckle him good-naturedly for how seriously he took strength training, mobility and nutrition. He was a real student of the game and was always excited to share his knowledge with others. Since those younger years I’ve had the pleasure of keeping in touch with Kyle. His success in baseball, in player development and particularly in catching performance has been no surprise. As a coach and a mentor, Kyle is someone who cares, is eager to understand and help fulfill your goals, and will always give his honest opinion. He kindly continues to be a source of knowledge for me to this day. I would recommend him to anyone. Time bettering yourself with him will be time well-spent and a great investment in your career.

These skills coupled with his education and caring for people are exactly what our culture needs moving forward. Any athlete that gets to train with Kyle is in great hands.
Father and Coach of Perfect Game Nationally-Ranked Team/Son
My son Robbie has worked with Kyle for over a year. As a 13 year old catcher who plays in many national tournaments, his defense as a catcher is incredibly important to the success of his team. He has seen many different catching instructors over the years, none of which has had the impact on him that Kyle has. His knowledge of the catching position is incredible, but I think that it is Kyle’s demeanor and personality that has really created a bond between them. Robbie really enjoys working with Kyle, in large part because Kyle is very easy going, mild mannered, and easy to talk to. He also makes sure that Robbie warms his body up the right way, which is super important, especially as he becomes a young man. I have seen players get hurt many times, and most of the time it comes from not properly warming up their body. He has given Robbie strategies on how to g* his body ready before games. Another big part of every lesson includes discussions about his technique, why it worked, why it didn’t work, and what he can do to make it better. This gives Robbie the strategies necessary to make in game adjustments.
As a coach of some of the most talented players in the northeast, it’s so important that players need to be able to self assess and make their own adjustments, not only in one weekend or one game, but adjustments from pitch to pitch, either as a hitter or a catcher. As a coach, it becomes impossible to give advice and tips after each pitch to each player. Coaches want players who are able to make adjustments and change during the game. This is one of the best parts of working with Kyle, he gives his players the ability to assess performance and make in-game adjustments. He has helped Robbie become a much better defensive player in just a year of working together.
Kyle’s knowledge of the game is incredible. As a lifelong baseball player and coach from tee ball to varsity, I have been amazed at all of the baseball knowledge I have yet to learn! Kyle has shown me exactly how much I all still have to learn about the finer points of the game. He has helped Robbie in every aspect of baseball.
Father of D1 Ballplayer, Former College Player and Coach
I have played college baseball, coached at the college and high school levels, and am lucky enough to have a son that is now playing division 1 baseball. My son has been hitting with Kyle for several years.I can easily say I have learned as much from watching Kyle’s lessons as my son has participated in them.
Kyle brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and understanding of not only hitting but on how to coach athletes and get the most out of them. It’s a rare talent to find someone that not only knows the information but can relay it effectively to athletes of all different capabilities.
Kyle not only works with the physical approach of hitting but also the mental aspect behind it. The constant challenge Kyle provides has led to incredible advances in my son’s ability to recognize pitches, make the correct pitch selection, and overall mechanics of his swing. The biggest advancements have come in his preparation to hit and his mental approach to his at-bats.
Kyle encourages him to be challenged and even fail at times to learn from those mistakes. I can tell you his approach has not only helped lead my son to become a better hitter but also a better athlete and most importantly a better person.
If you do have an opportunity to hit, field, or talk with Kyle, take advantage of that time. You won’t be disappointed
