Head Athletic Trainer
Jeremiah Randall was named the Astros Major League head athletic trainer on Nov. 9, 2015. The 2023 season will be his eighth atop the Astros athletic training staff.
Randall and his staff proved to be invaluable in 2020 and 2021 as they oversaw much of the Astros COVID-19 safety protocols as the club navigated through two challenging seasons. Randall oversaw the testing of players and staff, which became a daily occurrence in 2020 during the Astros extended playoff run.
Randall and his staff are recognized as one of the best in baseball, as the group was named the Major League Baseball Athletic Training Staff of the Year in 2017, an award that’s given out by PBATS (Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society) and voted on by training staffs from throughout the league.
Prior to joining the Astros, Randall spent the previous three seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates serving as the club’s Major League rehab coordinator and physical therapist/assistant athletic trainer.
Prior to joining the Pirates, Randall worked two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, serving as their minor league rehab coordinator in 2010 and as their Major League physical therapist for the 2011 season. In addition to his time in Major League Baseball, Randall spent time as an intern in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. He has also presented at several national sports medicine conferences and has contributed as an author to various sports medicine and rehabilitation textbooks.
Currently, he is the principal investigator for the testing of several functional upper extremity assessment tools for use in the overhead throwing athlete. In addition to his clinical research, he has co-authored several case studies that are under peer review for publication in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
Randall received his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree in 2009 from the University of Miami (FL). While there, he conducted research involving active military members and aided in the development of the Comprehensive High-level Activity Mobility Predictor (CHAMP).
He received his undergraduate degree in biology from Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan., and went on to the University of Kansas to obtain his athletic training degree. During his time at Tabor College, he was a three-year letterman in basketball and track and received all-conference honors in both sports.
Randall was born in Mound City, Kan. Currently, he resides in The Woodlands, TX, with his wife, Kelly, daughter Aliann and son Declan.
