With over 22 years of experience coaching baseball at the rep and Triple-A levels, Mark Cotgrave will be taking over the Huskies baseball team after last year’s disappointing 3-17 record.

“I am so thrilled to join the George Brown Huskies,” Cotgrave said. “It is a new challenge and opportunity and I feel I have coached at almost every level so this is the next step for me.”

A former manager of the North York Blues Bantam Baseball Club, Cotgrave is also known as a player development specialist, according to GBC athletics.

Cotgrave’s experience and talent for training will help the Huskies learn new techniques and build on existing ones, focusing on the defensive side of the game and putting pressure on the opponent.

In preparation for the season Cotgrave says he is building the team from fielding and pitching.

“Hitting is dessert,” says Cotgrave. “You do not get dessert until you have finished your dinner.”
