The American Baseball Coaches Association has added Jeremy Sheetinger as College Division Liaison, a new position created to assist in increasing communication across all levels. Sheetinger was most recently head coach at NCAA Div. III Spalding University in Louisville.
"We are very excited to add this position and to have a positive and high-energy person like Jeremy as our newest staff member at the ABCA," said ABCA Executive Director Craig Keilitz. "Jeremy has a passion for the ABCA and for advancing the game of baseball. He gives us more manpower to assist in servicing our member coaches and his diverse experience is very attractive."
The College Division Liaison position, which the ABCA Board of Directors voted to add, is responsible for helping service the membership at the NCAA Div. II, Div. III, NAIA, Junior College and Pacific Association Division levels as well as increasing the awareness and services of the ABCA to all potential members.
"I'm beyond thankful for the opportunity to work with the ABCA, an association that I am so passionate about," said Sheetinger, who has attended every ABCA Convention since 2007. "I'm ready to work to enhance the game of baseball from this platform and I can't wait to get into the office and begin speaking with coaches every day."
In three seasons at Spalding, Sheetinger led the Golden Eagles to an 86-43 overall record (.667) and a 52-21 mark (.712) in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Spalding competed in three straight SLIAC Tournaments in the program's first three seasons eligible for the NCAA Div. III postseason.
In addition to Spalding, Sheetinger has also worked as the lead assistant at Saint Joseph's College in Indiana (Div. II) for two seasons and Director of Operations at University of Kentucky (Div. I) for three seasons. He also coached at Brescia University and Georgetown College (NAIA) for one season each.
Sheetinger also has experience with summer league teams, camps and academies. He has worked camps in 26 states. He played baseball and earned his undergraduate degree from Kentucky Wesleyan College and also earned master's degrees from Brescia University and the University of Kentucky.
