Head Coach

13TH SEASON w DELAWARE ‘82 Former standout outfielder and University of Delaware Athletics Hall of Fame member Jim Sherman will begin his 12th year as the head coach of the Blue Hen baseball program in 2012. He served as Delaware’s Assistant Coach from 1995-2000. In 2001, he took over for Hall of Fame head coach Bob Hannah, who retired following the 2000 season after 36 years at the helm of the UD baseball program. Sherman, who was inducted into the Delaware Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008 and the University of Delaware Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009, is the 15th head coach in UD history and just the third since 1956. He has compiled a 11-year mark of 327-272, good for a winning percentage of .546. In league play, he has led Delaware to a regular season mark of 143-133 (.518). His 17-year overall head coaching record, which includes a sevenyear stint at Wilmington (Del.) University in 1987-94, stands at an impressive 545-400 (.577). He led his team to the conference tournament six times in his 11 seasons, guiding squads to the league championship game three times with an America East title and NCAA Tournament berth in 2001 and Colonial Athletic Association runner-up finishes in 2004 and 2007.

NOTES

posted 30 or wins five times and had eight winning seasons. Recognized throughout college baseball as one of the game’s top hitting instructors, his talent as a hitter, both at the collegiate and professional levels, has carried over into his ability to work with his hitters. Since becoming the hitting instructor of the Blue Hens in 1995, his teams have carried the reputation of being aggressive both at the plate and on the bases. This philosophy has helped Delaware produce some of college baseball’s best offensive teams and players in recent years. Sherman came to Delaware as an assistant coach in 1995 after serving seven yearsas head coach and six years as athletic director at neighboring Wilmington (Del.) University. He was 218-128 in his seven seasons at Wilmington, winning six District titles, two Regional titles, and making two trips to the NAIA World Series. Before leaving Wilmington, he established the baseball program as one of the top NAIA programs in the country. Wilmington now competes at the NCAA Division II level. From his Wilmington teams, he had three players sign professional baseball contracts. During his time as athletic director, five sports at Wilmington College advanced to the NAIA championship tournament. He was inducted into the inaugural class of the Wilmington University Athletics Hall of Fame in April 2001. In 1993, 1994 and 1995, Sherman served as an assistant coach at the U.S. Olympic Baseball Trials in Homestead, Fla. At the trials, he coached under legendary co llege coaches Skip Bertman, Ray Tanner and Ron Polk. In 1993, he was the head coach of the East team. At the trials, he worked with the outfielders and hitters. He had the opportunity to work with major league outfielders Mark Kotsay, J.D. Drew, and Jacque Jones. Sherman enjoyed an outstanding career on the field for the Blue Hens from 1979 through 1982, hitting .347 in his career as an outfielder. He hit .367 with eight home runs and 52 runs batted in as a freshman in 1979; .328 with 13 home runs and 56 RBI as a sophomore in 1980; .316 with 10 home runs and 51

home runs and RBIs. He finished his professional career in 1986 with the AAA Tucson Toros. A former standout on both the football and baseball fields at William Penn High School, Sherman still lives in his native New Castle, Del. with his sons Cody and Matthew. SHERMAN’S DELAWARE PRO SIGNEES

RBI as a junior in 1981; and .378 with 15 home runs and 68 RBI as a senior in 1982. While playing at Delaware, Sherman led the Hens to three NCAA Regional appearances before being drafted in the 14th round of the 1982 amateur baseball draft by the Houston Astros. He is one of just four players in UD history to earn all-conference honor four times, earning first team All-East Coast Conference honors from 1979-82. Upon graduation, he held school records for career home runs (46, which stood until 1999) and home runs in a season (15), RBI in a season (68), total bases in a season (209), and total bases in a career (489). His 489 total bases and 227 RBI still rank No. 2 all-time in UD history while his 46 home runs rank third, 261 hits are fifth, and 59 doubles and 15 triples place him seventh all-time. In the summers following both his sophomore and junior seasons, Sherman played outfield in the Cape Cod League for the Chatham A’s. He was named to the Cape Cod All-Star team both seasons and was among the league leaders in average, home runs, and RBI. Sherman spent five years in the Houston Astros organization as an outfielder and third baseman, reaching the AAA level. He spent one year on the Astros 40-man roster and two years in their major league spring training camp. He was viewed as one of the top power hitting prospects in the Astros organization during the mid 1980’s. When he was at the AA level playing for the Columbus (Ga.) Astros, he led the league in doubles and finished among the league leaders in both

Hammer spent his first four years as a Blue Hen assistant under the leadership of legendary Blue Hen skipper Bob Hannah. He will begin his 13th season as the program’s top assistant in 2013 and is involved in all aspects of the program, including recruiting and serving as both the infield and hitting coach. He also serves as codirector of the Blue Hen Baseball Camps conducted at the University of Delaware during the summers. In 2003, Hammer was selected as an AFLAC National Assistant Coach of the Year Award recipient by a panel of judges from Scholastic Coach and Athletic Director Magazine. This award recognizes those coaches based on longevity, expertise, contributions to the school and community and special achievements throughout their careers. Hammer has played an important part in the program’s success since joining the staff in 1997. Delaware has posted a combined record of 518-364 (.587) since his arrival, winning four consecutive America East Conference titles and making four NCAA Regional Tournament appearances from 1998-2001. He has helped lead 13 teams to winning records, including 10 that have won 30 or more games. In past seasons, the program has made a jump into the top-50 in the NCAA Division I RPI (Rated Percentage Index). In 2002, the program’s first in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), the Blue Hens finished the season with a record of 35-22, finishing with an RPI ranking of 45th in the country. In 2001, the team posted a record of 45-15 and advanced to the Columbus, Ohio Regional Tournament, finishing with an RPI ranking of 32nd in the country. Regarded as one of the region’s top infield instructors, Hammer has had several of his infielders drafted into professional baseball. In 2006, Delaware was among the top offensive teams in NCAA Division I, ranking No. 1 nationally in home runs/game, doubles/ game, and slugging percentage. The team hit a school record 111 round-trippers along with 143 doubles. The 2007 team finished 3223 and made its second CAA Championship game appearance in four seasons while the 2012 squad went 31-27 and also advanced to the CAA title game. In all, 21 Blue Hens have gone on to play professionally during Hammer’s 16 seasons as an assistant at Delaware, including former major league outfielders Reid Gorecki and Kevin Mench and current minor league players Carlos Alonso (Philadelphia), Alex Buccholz (Texas), Ryan Cuneo (Chicago Cubs), and Mike McGuire (Independent). In addition, former UD catcher John Schneider is an assistant coach at the rookie level in the Toronto organization. A 1996 graduate of the University of Delaware with a bachelor of

science degree in engineering technology and technical management, Hammer was a four-year letterwinning infielder for the Blue Hens. He captained both the 1995 and 1996 squads and ranked in the top 10 all-time in several offensive categories upon his graduation, including games played (203), at-bats (717), runs scored (217), hits (258), doubles (62), total bases (412) and walks (144). He also finished his career as a Blue Hen with 26 home runs, a .360 overall batting average and a career on-base percentage of .536. In 1996, Hammer was selected as the All-Tournament shortstop at the NCAA Midwest Regional Tournament at Wichita State University after hitting .625 with two home runs and eight RBI in two games.

PITCHING COACH

5TH SEASON w MIAMI (FL) ‘05 Brian Walker has returned to the University of Delaware baseball coaching staff as pitching coach for the 2013 season. Walker, who also served as the Blue Hen pitching coach for four seasons in 2007-10, rejoins a staff led by Sherman, associate head coach Dan Hammer, and assistant coach Mel Bacon. “We are very fortunate to have Brian back on our staff,” said Sherman in making the announcement. “He comes with tremendous experience. He did a great job for us in the past and we expect just the same this time. Brian pitched at the highest level of college baseball and won two College World Series while at Miami (Fla.). That’s good for our program and and really helps us in recruiting.” “I’m very happy to be back with the University of Delaware baseball program and working with Coach Sherman,” Walker stated. “My first experience with the Blue Hens was enjoyable and I want to continue to recruit outstanding student-athletes and improve on the high expectations the program already possesses.” Returning after a stint with the All-Star Baseball Academy in Delaware, Walker handled the reigns as pitching coach for the University of Delaware from 2006 through 2010, helping the Blue Hens to three winning seasons and two Colonial Athletic Association Tournament appearances, including a runner-up finish in 2007.

delaware blue hens baseball During Walker’s first tenure leading the UD pitching staff, the Blue Hens tied a 24-year school record that was set in 1983 as three Blue Hen pitchers were selected in the 2007 Major League Baseball first-year player draft. Billy Harris went in the 25th round to the Philadelphia Phillies, Chad Kerfoot was the Oakland Athletics’ choice in the 30th round, and Mike McGuire was selected in the 46th round by the Cincinnati Reds. A native of Miami, Fla., Walker compiled a 26-5 record in three seasons as a left-handed pitcher at Miami (Fla.) and was drafted in the fourth round of the 2001 Major League Baseball draft by the New York Mets. He spent five seasons in the Mets’ organization, splitting time between Brooklyn, Capital City, and St. Lucie. During his time with the Mets organization, Walker compiled a 17-13 record with a 3.66 earned-run average and 212 strikeouts in 244 innings pitched. During his collegiate career, Walker was a member of two College World Series championship teams, helping the Hurricanes win it all as a freshman in 1999 and as a junior in 2001. As a sophomore in 2000, he posted a 12-2 record with 88 strikeouts in 99 innings. He followed up his outstanding sophomore season by going 12-1 for the national champion Hurricanes, including a win over USC during the College World Series.

ASSISTANT COACH

4TH SEASON w FROSTBURG STATE ‘72 Veteran coach Mel Bacon enters his fourth season as a member of the University of Delaware baseball team’s coaching staff during the 2012 season. “The addition of Mel is as good as you can do in this business,” said Delaware head coach Jim Sherman. “Through his experience in high school and in the college ranks, there is no one better. We are very, very fortunate to have him here. He’s a great addition to the staff, and he will really help working with the catchers and as our first base coach.” During his two seasons at Delaware, the Blue Hens have posted winning seasons each year and made a spirited run to the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament championship game in 2012. Prior to arrving at Delaware, Bacon served on the staff at Delaware’s CAA rival Towson University for seven years. With the Tigers, he helped the program make the transition over to the CAA in 2002. Eventually, in 2005, Towson won 34 games, the second-most in program history, and finished second during the CAA Tournament. Prior to joining the college ranks, Bacon had a distinguished career as a baseball coach and health and physical education teacher at North East High School in Cecil County, Md.

delaware blue hens baseball The Colonial Athletic Association continues to build on its reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically. The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 22 NCAA post-graduate scholars.

CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. At least two women’s soccer teams have advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in three of the past four seasons and William & Mary gave the CAA a team in the final 16 of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship for the sixth time in the last nine years. In men’s cross country, William & Mary advanced to the NCAA Championship for the 12th straight year and finished 19th overall. In the pool, Towson’s Meredith Budner finished as the runnerup in the 500 freestyle and 1650 freestyle at the 2011 NCAA Championship and received All-America honors along with George Mason’s Ashley Danner. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship in the past decade. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 14 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the eight of the last nine Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-Americans in lacrosse, tennis, golf, track and field, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. In 2002, two faculty members from CAA institutions were awarded academia’s most coveted distinction – the Nobel Prize. John B. Fenn, a research professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, received the Nobel Prize for chemistry, and Vernon Smith, a professor of economics and law at George Mason University, shared the Nobel Prize in economic sciences. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.
