CHESTERTOWN, Md. — Washington College head baseball coach Cory Beddick has announced the hiring of Bennett Schiltz as the team's pitching coach. Schiltz was an All-American pitcher at Frostburg State University and a former assistant coach at that school.
Schiltz spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons as an assistant coach at Frostburg, working with pitchers and catchers his first year and then adding recruiting duties his second year. The 2016 Bobcats finished first in the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) regular-season standings and earned a bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament. Schiltz has also served as a head and assistant coach for several summer wood-bat league teams.
Schiltz, whose collegiate baseball career began at Glendale Community College, was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) All-America third team in his one season pitching at Frostburg State. He helped lead the Bobcats to the 2015 CAC Championship and a berth in the NCAA Division III College World Series. He also earned All-South Region and All-CAC honors, finishing the year with a 10-1 record and a 1.52 ERA. At Glendale Community College, Schiltz was named to the All-Arizona Community College Athletic Conference team in 2012.
Schiltz received an A.A. from Glendale Community College in 2012, a B.S. in Liberal Studies with a minor in Coaching from Frostburg State in 2015, and an M. Ed. from Frostburg State in 2017.
