Zips look to strike gold with new hire
Written By CoachE27
07/28/2022 06:08:52 am
The Akron campus will welcome a new addition for this season. Early this morning, Athletic Director Murdo Murray, announced that a deal has been struck for Nuka Rains to become the new head coach of the Zips baseball program. Nuka Rains comes to Akron after spending the last 2 years on staff with his father, Easton Rains, at Alabama as an volunteer assistant. Prior to his time at the Capstone, Nuka Rains was a part of the Braves minor league organization after being drafted in the 6th round out of high school. The Zips hope that the younger Rains can find spark in low places like his father did at Long Island University.
Hawaii baseball team expected to hire first female manager
Written By Jonathan Mo

It took 25 years in the making, but what many have figured to happen sometime has finally eventually happened. We have seen a lot of females hired as assistant coaches in the NCAA, but we haven't seen any of those coaches... or any woman in particular... hired as a manager at the NCAA level. That's when Hawaii stepped up to the plate.

Today, the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors baseball team formally announced its new manager Lucy Walton. This season, Walton was a hot-topic commodity, and many struggling baseball teams have been looking to sign her as manager. Hawaii, who only won 12 games last season, made the decision to sign Walton, who brings some of her mentality to the Hawaii squad.

"It doesn't feel real," Walton said in her introductory press conference. "I never thought I would make it this far, but I have faith in myself that I can turn a school around. I am aware that none of this will be easy, but I am always willing and able."

Before accepting the job at Hawaii, Lucy Walton spent 3 seasons as the assistant coach for the Georgia Bulldogs. Before that, she was the pitching coach for the Cincinnati Bearcats for another 3 years and spent 2 years as a pitching coach for Harvard. Lucy is awaiting a new page in her chapter as she takes over the Hawaii baseball team.

"One again, it has been an honor. The team wants to restore its name back to the college baseball atmosphere. I feel confident that they made the right choice. It's an honor to take the role. I know that this will start with many bumps and bruises along the way, but I will eventually lead the team over the top."
Is Nemo Park the next big manager in the NCAA?
Written By Jonathan Mo

Nemo was called to fix the Iowa baseball team after a disappointing 5-7 coming into a season where Iowa found themselves champions last year. There was the expectation that he would put them over the hump and get them to at least over .500 on the year, but he never thought he would lead the same team towards a second-straight championship.

"It feels like a dream," said Park. "I never would've thought that I would get here. I'm pretty sure there were not that big of expectations for our team coming into this one. But, now, we proved the doubters wrong."

Park, who replaced Ender Mann as Iowa manager, had no coaching experience -- even on the high school level. There was not much hype towards the signing, but now people expect top-quality effort every time. A vast question arose: Perhaps Nemo Park will be the next big manager in the NCAA?

"It certainly feels like it," answered Park. "There is a lot of speculation that I might be a hidden gem. I'm already slated for the Big Ten Manager of the Year. Perhaps I can be a dark horse for the NCAA Manager of the Year," Park joked.

With the tournament win for Iowa, they now automatically qualify for the National Tournament. And for a new coach like Nemo Park, especially with no coaching experience, that is tremendous for the resume.

"Of course, I am thrilled to play in the National Tournament. I'm not sure if we could make it to the CWS, but it's worth trying. My players should work hard as they should. Iowa, I won't let you down."

Nemo's first season gave many flashbacks of Easton Rains when he first took the reigns onto Long Island. Coming off an abysmal season going 16-44, Easton was able to exceed all expectations for the next season, only losing 3 losses that season, leading the team to a Big East championship, and even taking the team to Regionals. Although it wasn't an entire season like Rains, Nemo is looking to replicate that success.

Nemo is also having a lot of chemistry with his players, but not just on-field.

"He's a great manager," said senior left-fielder Benjamin Hightower -- who was drafted in the third round by the Chicago Cubs. "He's rather funny and has brought a presence to the locker room. I think a morale boost from a manager as young as Park brings a lot, and it shows in our play. Not saying that he said he's my favorite, though..."

Nemo is also showing well on the recruiting sigil. His somewhat aggressive recruiting style has proven well, as he already has one 5-star recruit under his wing. And given the trend the team is going towards, there is no doubt that more will follow.

We asked Nemo what this means, not only for the club's future but the future of Park himself.

"Honestly, I'm not sure," replied Park. "I think for the team, they will do very well -- hopefully reach a championship -- with me on board. As for me, it depends. If I find another opportunity to work for another team and help them, that'll happen. For now, I am focused on bringing Iowa to the top. But I hope that if I leave the team, the team still prospers on the College Baseball scene."
