Doug Bernier debuted in the Major Leagues in 2008 at 2nd base for the Colorado Rockies, and played for 5 organizations...
...over 16 professional seasons.
He has played every position on the field at the Major League level except for catcher, and is proficient at second base, shortstop, and third base. His defensive stats ranked at the top of the league nearly every year, with a career .971 fielding average.
Doug is currently a professional scout with the Colorado Rockies. Following his retirement from 16 years of playing professionally, Doug joined ranks with 7 other pro scouts who travel through USA evaluating Major League and Minor League players on behalf of the Colorado Rockies.
Among Bernier's many coaches and mentors are Mike Gallego, Albie Pearson, Clint Hurdle, Joe Girardi, Kevin Long, Wally Horsman, Carney Lanceford, Tom Runnells, Mike Krukow, and many more.
In 2012, Bernier decided to "give back" by creating Pro Baseball Insider, a platform where professional baseball players donate their knowledge for free to the public.
Tens of thousands players, parents and coaches have been helped by the free baseball instruction at PBI. Click here to check out PBI's list of contributing Major League players and coaches who have donated their knowledge.
