MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Former starting pitcher and student assistant coach Kane Keith (2017) has returned to Georgia College Baseball to serve as pitching coordinator, head coach Jason Eller has announced.
"GC Baseball could not be more thrilled to elevate and expand Coach Keith's role within our program," said Eller. "Being an Alum and hailing from Lagrange he has a legitimate pulse on the recruiting scene in Georgia and knows the scope of which we recruit from. Kane's knowledge of pitching and his preparation on a daily basis is a big time offseason addition for us."
Keith spent two seasons in the rotation for the Bobcats, including a spot on the 2017 Peach Belt Conference (PBC) All-Tournament Team. In the PBC Title game, he spun seven beautiful innings, scattering three runs, fanning three and allowing just a single walk in winning the game against UNC Pembroke.
He spent the 2018 season in the Bobcat dugout as a student assistant coach, while finishing his exercise science degree. He helped the Bobcats to post a 4.22 team ERA while going 44-12 and picking up the PBC Regular-Season and Tournament titles.
The Bobcats begin play in February, stay tuned to GCBobcats.com when the schedule becomes available.
