Pittsburgh Pirates- Jon Nunnally

ALTOONA- Over the course of my trip to see the Altoona Curve play their home opener April 6-7, I was biding my time to get the opportunity to talk with Altoona’s hitting coach, Jon Nunnally.

Throughout my time talking with Pittsburgh Pirates‘ prospects, the one name that kept coming up was Nunnally’s. The players seem to have taken a liking to him and love the amount of detail he provides in his teachings.

Nunnally was brought into the Pirates’ organization in 2019 when he was brought on as Altoona’s hitting coach. Previously he served in similar roles in the Los Angeles Angles’ system, as well as the Boston Red Sox.

What initially sparked my interest in talking with Nunnally was my observation during a round of batting practice when I noticed Pirates prospect, Mason Martin, and Nunnally having an in-depth conversation about first movement when the pitch is thrown.
