Dennis Noonan served as a minors trainer a single season, also at league all-star game

Dennis Noonan appears to have served as a trainer in the minors during one single season, but he made it count.

Working as the trainer for the high-A Kinston Indians in the Carolina League, Noonan also served as a trainer in the league all-star game, according to his card in that year's all-star team set.

His Kinston card lists him as from Morristown, N.J., and notes his 1990 season marked his first in pro baseball.

Noonan appears to have graduated from Ball State University with a bachelor's in physical education, according to a note in The Morristown Daily Record.

He's since continued to work in athletic training, at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York and, most recently, as a self-employed athletic trainer in Delaware, according to his LinkedIn profile

The profile also confirms Noonan served as an Indians trainer for that single season in 1990.

"My passion is teaching people how to stay healthy, both internally and externally," his LinkedIn profile reads. "My experience in sports rehab, ergonomics, biomechanics, and kiniseology informs everything I do in helping people to not only recover from injury, but to prevent injury in the first place."
