David List began his baseball career on the little league fields of Michigan and then traveled to Michigan State as a starter in the weekend rotation, as a freshman. From there, he moved to Texas where he played at Grayson County College and refined his skills as a pitcher.
List was approached to be an instructor at the Red River Ballyard in Sherman Texas where he taught lessons and coached an 18u travel team. After graduating from the junior college and transferring to Charleston Southern, an injury ensued, and List underwent Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow. After a year of rehabilitation and throwing, it was evident that the playing career was over.
List has coached for multiple programs – Summerville High School, South Aiken High School, and two summer travel programs in the state of South Carolina.
He continues to provide instruction and assistance to individual players. List is currently an associate scout for the New York Yankees.
Over the past four years, List has scouted games for Diamond Prospects in the West Columbia to North Augusta area. He is married to Angela and is the father of three boys: Tyler, Colten and Drew.
