Molly is the granddaughter of Bruce "Oggie" Ogrodowski, a former MLB catcher in the 1930s and 1940s. Over his 19 year career in baseball, he was known as Dizzy Dean's favorite catcher for the St. Luis Cardinals. He was also a part of the San Francisco Seals in the 1940s, the year they won the pennant.
Molly grew up learning to love the fundamentals and classic aspects of baseball, and seeing how it impacted her family. As a former athlete herself she combined her own athletic experiences along with what sports has meant to her family, to create a specialized program designed for professional athletes to assist them in achieving their optimal performance potential.
Developing Elite Athletic Consultants and the P.R.O.11™ Program began in 2008. Molly traveled throughout the country working with Sports Medicine doctors, trainers, and athletes as she researched the industry and tested her proprietary protocols against traditional care. Her results then lead her to working with players from 26 MLB organizations, and 13 NFL teams, and the creation of the P.R.O.11™ Program all through word of mouth from within the industry.

Bill Bryk, a former MLB scout and player, was an integral part of the start of Molly's career in baseball. He nicknamed Molly "Super Scout" as she was known to call him when she saw talented young players and wanted him to look at them, and he did.
Bill was a mentor to Molly, inviting her to tryouts and games to teach her what scouts looked for in players. He would say "you have to look at a man's heart, not just his talent", and it's true. He not only gave Molly a chance, but he challenged her. Bill let her evaluate the players and give him reports to review, and then there would be a discussion about the day. She absorbed what he had to say, and it made her better at her craft. They had countless conversations about baseball, not only the current game but classic times when Molly's grandfather played.
Bill believed in Molly, in her goals, and in her ability to contribute to the baseball industry. In the difficult world of baseball, Bill Bryk, a veteran MLB scout and former player, was a genuine person who truly loved the game. He was a humble man, a family man, and a hard working man. He was a cancer survivor, which didn't surprise anyone who knew him. He was special, and baseball was a better place with him in it. Baseball isn't the same without him, but we all have a guardian angel in him to look over us and give us guidance.
The P.R.O.11™ is dedicated to Bill Bryk and the legacy that he left behind for all of us in baseball to strive to live up to. Thank you Bill.
