Jon Deeble has now been a professional baseball coach for over 15 years and is currently the head coach of the Australia national baseball team. He gains the trust and commitment of his players, coaching and supporting staff, through his sound leadership skills. He is able to inspire those around him to adopt his powerful theme of “Executing Perfectly” and producing exceptional results.
He pitched 16 years for the Australian National Team, appearing in the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul. Beginning in 1994, Jon managed in the Minor Leagues for the Florida Marlins for seven years before moving over to the Red Sox in 2002 as an international scout and coach. He managed the Lowell Spinners, Boston's farm team in the New York-Penn League, in 2003. As manager of Australia's National Team, he won a silver medal at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, as well as managing the team at the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics.
Jon became a coach at the Major League level when he accepted a position with the Boston Red Sox during the 2005 season. He was instrumental in the Red Sox signing of Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima, as the Red Sox Pacific Rim Coordinator. He followed and scouted Matsuzaka for seven years and was very much a part of the record posting fee of $51 million dollars as well as a six year $52 million contract.
