2021 Coaching Staff

Coach Ty Schuch returns to OEB for his third season in 2021.  A graduate of the College of Wooster, the lefty went 16-5 in his career for the Fighting Scots. His best season came in 2016 where he went 8-1 and struck out 38 batters.  In addition to his role with Ohio Elite, Ty was just hired as an assistant coach at Allegheny College.  He will work under head coach Brandon Crum, a former teammate of VP Rob McNerney at Gannon.

Thanks to the NCAA granting players another year of eligibility Coach Sam will be returning to Rollins for one more year.  He graduated with a degree in Philosophy and a minor in Business last spring.  He will be pursuing a masters degree in 2021.  Sam is an OEB alum and played for Vice President Rob McNerney.  He is the model of hard work.  He comes ready to go every single day, and always gives his team every ounce of effort, energy and hustle he has.  He was one of Coach McNerney's favorite players to coach.  Sam did a great job with our hitters and infielders in the summer of 2020 and we look forward to having back in 2021!

Coach Spidell will be new to OEB in 2021, but is no stranger to the coaching staff.  Steve was a teammate of Coach Ty Schuch's at the College of Wooster. As a player, Steve is a two time NCAC champion and played on the 2018 World Series team. He played for Ty on the Wayne County Legion baseball team.   Coach Spidell has worked as a trainee consultant for Connected Performance working one on one with college pitchers.   He will be a great addition to our staff and will work directly with the pitchers.
