Coach Jeff Malm

Following a 10-year professional playing career, Coach Malm has spent the past year helping Coach Sheff with the Southern Nevada Baseball High School program.

Malm was a four-year starter for Coach Sheff at Bishop Gorman High School where helped lead the Gaels to 4 straight Nevada state titles. Malm was also a part of Gorman’s four straight American Legion State Championship teams, including the 2008 team that captured the American Legion National Championship. Malm was named the MVP of the tournament. During his time under Coach Sheff, Malm was a two-way star and broke numerous state and national records, some that still stand today. Malm was two-time Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year in 2008, and again in 2009. He also garnered the honor of 2009 Louisville Slugger National Player of the year, in addition to being named a two-time All-American. He was a member of the 18U USA National Team in 2007, claiming bronze at the Pan-Am games, and in 2008, where co-captained the team to the silver medal at the 18U World Championships.

Despite his commitment to the University of Southern California, Malm decided to forego his collegiate career after being selected in the 5thround of the 2009 MLB draft by the Tampa Bay Rays. Malm spent 6 seasons with the Rays, ultimately reaching AA. He was a two-time MiLB all-star.

Although drafted as a first baseman/outfielder, Malm was eventually converted to the mound after six professional seasons as a hitter. He spent years pitching with the Angels, Dodgers, and Rangers, and reached AAA where he was a member of the 2016 PCL runner-up Oklahoma City Dodgers. His experience as both a hitter and pitcher professionally, has given Malm a unique perspective of the game.
