Want a recruiting edge for young guys in New England? How about playing in a ballpark that was made to look similar to Fenway Park? Well, that’s only one thing that UMass Boston has going for them. Another is head coach Brendan Eygabroat. Just completing year 15, Eygabroat has defied the chilly odds and helped guide the Beacons to back to back D3 College World Series appearances.
In this episode, Coach Eygabroat talks about the love for baseball in the New England area, what makes UMass Boston so special, the replica of Fenway that is their home field, taking raw players and developing them into baseball players, coaching in the summer, his own experiences in the Cape Cod League, expectations of a summer coach, D3 overview, recruiting in D3, facilities, and staffing.
