@drivelinebases @CorvKnights @nwbca Awesome Guy!! My son attended a @USABaseball Clinic in the LA area that he was a Coach at. EXCELLENT/AMAZING interaction with ALL the Young Men in attendance! Wish I had more Coach like him growing up! #ClassAct

Kicked it with an absolute legend at @nwbca. This dude brings unreal energy and is a 10 year ex-KBO big leaguer, which somehow gets passed over (mostly because he never brings it up out of modesty). Yoon is the man.

Master Yoon hanging with Kyle Boddy of @DrivelineBB at the 2020 @nwbca.

@YoungjinYoon1 such a honor to have worked along side you @baseball_RCC This day in/day out mentality Yoon brings is unmatched. Great job @nwbca my friend. #passion #humble #development #showtheway


“Our job is to be humble, our job is people development, our job is to show the way” #iamhere4u

Check out this inspiring message from Youngjin Yoon. The current @CorvKnights assistant coach hit a home run with his presentation at the @nwbca this last weekend. Yoon was one of many #NWBCA2020 speakers with WCL ties.


“Our job is to be humble, our job is people development, our job is to show the way” #iamhere4u

Honored to be asked to host night one @nwbca in honor of the late Jerry Gatto who did so much, for so many, in and around the Rose City baseball community ⚾️ 🌹
