Matt Wollenzin is entering his eighth season on the MoonDogs coaching staff and fourth as the team’s field manager. Over his first three seasons at the helm of MoonDogs baseball, Wollenzin has coached the MoonDogs to a 96-84 (.533) mark including a franchise-best 44 wins in 2021.  Wollenzin, a 2013 all-star catcher for the MoonDogs out of Austin Peay, served under Ryan Kragh as an assistant hitting coach from 2015-2018.  “Wolly”, as he is known in Mankato, began his collegiate coaching career in 2016 at the University of Evansville for the Purple Aces before uniting with Kragh to coach at Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato for the 2018 season. A native of Lakewood, Colo., he is the Mankato MoonDogs eighth field manager in the organization’s history and one of the longest-tenured personnel in the program’s history, having been around since his playing days in 2013.
