New ERA of Miles Baseball




Miles Sports Information


After winning a team-record 31 games and finishing third at the SIAC Baseball Championship, head coach Kenneth Hatcher took his 250-plus victories (and 94 more that were vacated) and retired after 17 seasons at the helm. He wanted to make sure the program was in good hands going forward so he groomed Ty Roberts, a former player and assistant for the Golden Bears, as his successor.

You can hear Roberts’ thoughts on becoming the new head coach and his goals for the program by clicking on the video link above. Meanwhile, Roberts had to find some players to fill out his roster for the 2017 campaign and signed 16 players who should make up the nucleus of a team that is looking to improve on last season’s historic effort in hopes of winning the SIAC title.
