Proud to announce my New Pitching Coach, Matthew Pickard. He's a graduate from Trenton Peabody and pitched collegiately at Northwest Community College and Union University. Not only does Coach Pickard bring his knowledge as a pitching coach, but he's a great Baseball guy and the boys, along with the saff, will benefit from having him! It's a honor to been able to coached him as a youngester and now have him going in the trenches with me as an equal! Thank you Coach Pickard for making the decision to be with us. #WeAreGibsonCounty
