2021 Coaching Staff

Coach Ty Schuch returns to OEB for his second season in 2020.  Last year he served as the teams pitching coach.  He will move into the role of head coach for the 17u season.  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 will serve as a volunteer assistant for COW this spring. 

The 2020 season will be Coach Mullen Socha's first with Ohio Elite.  A recent graduate of Washington and Jefferson, Mullen was an all conference infielder and won 134 games in his career.  He hit .363 over four seasons where he amassed 151 hits, 51 extra base hits and 95 runs batted in.  We are very excited to add Coach Socha to the staff.  He will be an incredible help to our players as they navigate the recruiting process and learn what it takes to be a student-athlete at the next level.

Sam just finished his playing career at Rollins where he graduated with a degree in in Philosophy with a minor in Business.  He has plans to join the Navy Seals in the fall.  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.  He will be a huge help to our hitters and infielders.
