Vision Quest is proud to announce the addition of Mike DiFelice as our Players’ Consultant. Known as one of the best defensive catchers in Major League Baseball, Mike was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 11th round in 1991, and from there made his first Major League start in 1996. For the next twelve years, Mike would go on to play for the Tampa Bay Rays, Kansas City Royals, Detroit Tigers, Chicago Cubs and retire with the New York Mets.
Shortly after retiring in 2008, Mike helped develop the pitching staff of the Tampa Bay Rays, with his powerful leadership bringing the team to their first World Series appearance in club history. His influential guidance led him to receive the role as Manager of the Kingsport Mets, a minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. In this position, Mike performed a variety of duties, such as talent evaluation, player development and scouting.
We are so excited to welcome Mike to our team and look forward to the leadership he will provide to our clients.
