Bombers Tab Assistant Coach
BATTLE CREEK, MI- Former Collegiate All-American and Minor Leaguer Adam White has been named Battle Creek’s hitting coach for the 2013 summer.
White, who is currently a volunteer assistant coach at Penn State University, will work with the team to improve hitting, bunting, and base running as well as serving as the teams’ third base coach.
White’s credentials as a player and coach will provide the young Bombers squad with a plethora of experience and knowledge. He was selected as a Collegiate Freshman All-American and West Virginia University’s Rookie of the Year in 2006 where he hit .368.

In the summer of 2012, White served as the hitting coach for the Stark County Terriers of the Great Lakes Collegiate League where his players led the league in batting average, slugging percentage, on base percentage, home runs, hits and runs scored.
