Maryland University hires former SOUTHERN MARYLAND BASEBALL CAMP participant as DIRECTOR OF BASEBALL OPERATIONS
Matt Swope is in his first season as Director of Baseball Operations with the Terps. Swope was named to the post in August of 2012. "It's very important for our program to bring a guy like Matt back into the operations position," said head coach John Szefc. "Obviously, he's a very passionate guy about the University of Maryland and particularly Maryland baseball. He has the know-how to really help me on the operation end of things as far as doing a lot of important things behind the scenes. He's also very connected with our alumni and boosters. I think he'll really help to grow that area with him being an alumnus. You can't put a price on the advantage of having Matt back in our program."
Harvard Appoints Bill Decker as New Baseball Coach
Former Trinity College head baseball coach Bill Decker has been named the new Joseph J. O'Donnell '67 Head Coach for Harvard Baseball, Athletics Director Bob Scalise announced Tuesday night.
In Decker, the Crimson has found its replacement for Joe Walsh, who suddenly passed away from an apparent heart attack on July 31 after serving as manager of the Crimson for 17 years. Walsh’s assistant Thomas Lo Ricco had served as interim head coach while the Harvard athletic department conducted a nationwide search for a permanent replacement.
"Obviously it's a situation that nobody in baseball wanted to be in with the untimely passing of Joe Walsh," Decker said in a statement Tuesday. "Nevertheless this is a tremendous opportunity at a world-class institution, and I greatly look forward to both those opportunities as well as the challenges to come." read more...
