Huskies Bring Another Hitting Coach into the Fold

The California native is eager to build a strong relationship with the community in Duluth

Duluth, Minn.- The huskies have landed another coach for the much-anticipated 2021 season. Chris Miguel has come on as a hitting coach for Duluth. The Daly City, California native says he first got into the coaching ranks right after his playing days. “I went back to coach at the high school I attended in San Francisco-Sacred Heart Cathedral,” Miguel said. “Once I started there, more doors and opportunities opened up for me, and I’m thankful for all of it.” Along with the Huskies, Coach Miguel is currently an assistant coach at Cañada College in Redwood City, California. This is where he got to know Huskies Head Coach Marcus Pointer. Miguel also coaches at a baseball training school for a team called the San Francisco Crabs.

Prior to coaching, Miguel played for Cañada College and later Rogers State University in Claremore, Oklahoma-starting all 95 games played for the Hillcats during 2016 and 2017 seasons. Chris made the most of those starts, tallying an outstanding career on-base percentage of .437 and an even better slugging percentage of .576. Coach Miguel hopes to pay forward some of that knowledge and experience gained through the year of playing baseball. “I’ve had mentors in my life that have made such positive impacts in my life,” he remarked. “The game of baseball has done so much for me…I’m forever indebted to give back the knowledge I’ve gained over the years from amazing people, and I want to provide any value I can to people who love the game (of baseball) as I do.”

Miguel says he chose the Huskies because of the great reputation of the organization, community, and staff. Let us stand by that reputation and give Chris a warm Duluth welcome!
