ABOUT DWAYNE HOSEY
Hosey was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in 1987, and spent most of his career in the minor league organizations of the Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, Kansas City Royals, and Boston Red Sox. In 1994 he had his best minor league season, winning the American Association MVP. In 112 games hit .333 and slugging .628 with 27 home runs, 80 RBI, 27 stolen bases, and 95 runs scored.

He was signed by the Yakult Swallows in 1997, and was immediately heralded as one of the greatest players ever to come to Japan by Swallows manager Katsuya Nomura. Hosey worked hard to get used to Japanese pitching, and his work paid off in his first season, where he beat out Hideki Matsui to lead the with 38 home runs.
Dwayne and his family have been in Omaha since 2003, making it home after becoming familiar with the city as a member of the Omaha Royals. Since that time, he has served as a hitting instructor, coach and mentor to countless athletes in the area. Dedication to the sport of baseball and all aspects of player development led Dwayne to open Hosey Baseball Training Center.
