Rodd Kurtz is a San Antonio native and attended Robert E Lee HS where he was a 4 yr letterman earning All City/All District honors in 3 of those 4 years.

At the end of his Junior year, Rodd was drafted by the Chicago Cubs and decided to forgo his Senior year and begin his professional career.
His professional career included seasons in Huntington, West Virginia, Peoria, Illonoisand a short stint with the Daytona Cubs as well. Although his professional playing career seemed short, it allowed him to learn the game from great baseball minds such as Jimmy Piersall, Sandy Alomar Sr, Rick Kranitz and Alan Dunn to name few. The education learned from these gentlemen cultivated what he considers to be a very successful coaching career.
As a coach and instructor Rodd has been privileged enough to see over 150 of his former players or students move on to play at the collegiate level and over 25 have signed pro contracts as well. Although he loved playing the game of baseball (and still continues to do so), he gains a much deeper sense of pride from being able to enjoy watching his former students and players advance their playing careers and hopes to continue to do so for a long time to come.
