Greenville graduate Adam Eberwein takes over Green Wave baseball program.
GREENVILLE – Greenville alum, Adam Eberwein has been named the new Greenville varsity high school baseball coach.
“I’m extremely excited,” said Eberwein. “I’ve been a part of Greenville for my whole entire life. I played at Sater Street baseball since I was a kid playing t-ball”
“I graduated from Greenville, played high school baseball here at Greenville,” Eberwein continued. “I’ve coached both of my kids through school. Just extremely excited to be a part of the program and ready to build the program.”
Eberwein currently serves as the defensive coordinator for the Wave varsity football team and coaches the seventh grade boys basketball team.
“Baseball is my passion,” Eberwein stated. “I love football, I played football, I was probably a little bit better football player than I was a baseball player but I love the sport of baseball.”
“I’ve coached basketball, I’ve coached football, I’ve coached baseball, I even coached soccer one year,” added Eberwein. “I feel like my coaching skills are exceptional and I’m ready to put those skills to use with our baseball program.”
Coach Eberwein is pleased with the talent coming into the 2022 spring OHSAA baseball season and does not consider it a rebuilding year.
“I believe the pieces are there,” Eberwein said. We have a very good group of kids – we are always talented with baseball in general. I am looking forward to molding those young individuals into developed young athletes and respectful young individuals also outside the sport of baseball.”
Eberwein begins his seventh season teaching at Greenville Senior High School and will start the school’s new CT (Construction Technologies) program for the 2021-2022 school year.
“I’m still going to be coaching football and I am still coaching seventh grade basketball and then moving right into varsity baseball so offseason workouts are going to be pretty demanding to get in but with the coaching staff that I am looking to put together we are going to be able to do a lot of good things moving forward in the offseason building the program.”
“My wife Erin is one hundred percent supportive,” Eberwein said of his new coaching position. “We’ve been a part of Greenville Citizens Baseball League (GCBL) for quite a while. We are going to continue to be a part of it because that is our feeder. Kids come from GCBL and we have to continue supporting kids learning the game of baseball at that young age.”
“I want to thank my family and my wife for all the support I get from her, Greenville City Schools, Coach Shaffer for giving me the opportunity to head this baseball program,” Coach Eberwein concluded, “and thank you to the Greenville Administration for their support.”
