Ryan Beckman, who has served as Assistant Coach for the SPC baseball team, has been named interim coach, replacing Rob Frances, who is no longer with the college.
“I am very excited about this opportunity,” Beckman said. “Growing up and playing everything from Little League to college baseball in Pinellas County I have great pride in taking over St. Petersburg College’s baseball program. Baseball is a great teaching tool to help young men learn valuable life skills that they will use on a daily basis. We have a talented and athletic team.”
Beckman, 27, began his coaching career at the college last season.
The baseball team will kick off its spring season against Miami-Dade College on Saturday, Jan. 28 at Al Lang Field at 11 a.m. See the full schedule.
