Helping International Baseball players on their pathway to playing the in USA



NCAA All-American and the

29th Australian to play MLB

Hello, My name is Josh Spence and I am a former College Baseball All-American and MLB pitcher from Geelong, Australia. 

   I graduated from Arizona State University in 2010, with a Bachelors of Interdisciplinary Studies focusing on Education and Sociology.

That same year I was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 9th round,

little did I know 12 months later I would be pitching in the big leagues...

   Although I am done playing my passion for Baseball is still very strong as I continue to learn the game from a different lens. What brings me joy is using my experience both academically and on the field to become a
stepping-stone for the younger generation, so they can to achieve the dreams of playing baseball at their highest level.

"Great speech. All the information was very helpful and I learned a lot".

From Melbourne, Australia

"As a parent of two young baseballer's wishing to go too College in America, I have found the process of understanding the eligibility process extremely confusing.

Josh came to the Victorian Schoolboys training and conducted a fantastic information session explaining the process and his journey to obtain College scholarship. I definitely have left the session with a better understanding".

From Perth, Australia

I would like to say thank you for your very informative presentation on "The College Pathway". As a parent from Australia, it was great to hear about your journey and get some finer information about the College recruitment process. I found the section on the recruitment video extremely helpful and I look forward to sharing my sons College pathway with you in the future. I highly recommend Built Baseball as a resource for future Australian College Baseball aspirants.
