Duluth, Minn — The Duluth Huskies Baseball Club is thrilled to welcome new Hitting Coach Nick White. White has a well-rounded experience of baseball from growing up in a well-versed baseball and softball family to playing himself, and now being a coach.

Coach White is from Monterey Peninsula where he grew up with his entire family around him. He went to college in Salinas, CA, which is actually where his mother teaches. He is the oldest of three children with a younger brother and sister. White is very talented off the field as well with just finishing his second Master’s degree.

He heard of the Huskies and Northwoods League through word of mouth by old teammates that always “spoke very highly of it.” He is also very excited to join the Huskies family, meet incoming players and “start winning.” This connects with his belief of “ Every new player is an opportunity for me to grow as a coach and for me to impact someone’s life positively.”

White realized one day at a time in the work field that being on a baseball field is where he wanted to be. Through his baseball experiences along with very rigorous school accomplishments, it shouldn’t be a surprise that he explains himself as hard working on and off the field, “I don’t just want to work hard I want to work harder than the people around me every single day.” To even giving great advice for young baseball players. “There is no job too small or beneath you. If there is work to be done you should be the first one there trying to do it.”

Huskies Fans’ hardworking players, passion, and the drive to win is exactly what Hitting Coach White, along with the rest of the coaching staff plan to give you this 2020 season. Until then make sure to stay
