He is no stranger to summer ball as he spent summers in Hawaii and New Jersey as a player. Following his collegiate career, O’Malley signed professionally with the Can-Am League's Worcester Tornadoes. “I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity here in Torrington, with the great baseball tradition, the community support, a proven winner in Coach Hunt and the promotions we have planned.” O’Malley stated

O’Malley graduated from The University of Rhode Island earning a Bachelor's Degree in Communications with a Minor in Business Management. He currently lives in Newport, Rhode Island during his transition to Torrington, CT.
