Mike Fitzgerald begins his first year as head coach at Montgomery County Community College. He spent last year as an assistant coach for the Mustangs. He graduated from Boyertown, where he played and coached for over 15 years. He coached high school baseball for 6 years and coached the American Legion baseball program for 6 years. During those 6 years his teams won 2 championships, made 1 trip to regionals and made 1 trip to states. Fitzgerald also spent 4 summers coaching at the Mickey Owen Baseball School in Missouri, along with 1 winter break with Mickey Owen in Bradenton, Florida.
“I am very excited about the opportunity that Montgomery County Community College has given me. One of my goals is to see every player that comes through our system moves on to the next level, not only in baseball but in life as well. Many life lessons are learned on the field and having that knowledge and experience will help our players as they move forward with their lives.” Fitzgerald attends annual coaches meetings and clinics to learn and share with his players what the MLB and Div I coaches are teaching and looking for.
He currently resides with his wife and 4 sons in Pennsburg.
