The disaster that was the Friends University baseball team in 2010 was something to behold. 0-22 in KCAC play. 3-37 overall. A 29-game losing streak to end the year. Keep in mind that’s just three years removed from a KCAC title. Throw in the fact that the best baseball talent in Kansas resides in their backyard … and you get the picture.They were as bad as any team in the history of the league.
But there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel.
Friends hired Adam Neisius as its new baseball coach Tuesday, and it seems like he should be a good fit … but he’s obviously got his work cut out for him. Dude has been a head coach before — at Dakota Wesleyan from 1998 to 2008 — so that bodes well for the Falcons. Chris Elliott is all over this one for a story in Wednesday’s Eagle, and I’ll link to it here when it goes up online. We’ll also get a Q&A with the new coach up here sometime in the next week.
