SIEMEK NAMED DIRECTOR OF DII BASEBALL OPERATIONS

It is with great excitement to announce that Garrett Siemek has been named the new Director of Division II Baseball Operations effective immediately. After Eric Curitore took over heading up Division I earlier this week, a Director of Division II Baseball Operations was needed. There was no better choice than Garrett especially seeing his fantastic management of Division III this past year.

Garrett will do a marvelous job with the Division II league and we couldn’t be more excited for you all to work with him. For those of you not familiar with Garrett, he played in the NCBA from 2014-2017 at the University of South Carolina where he served as the team’s Vice President for two years in 2016 and 2017. Garrett started working for CollClubSports and the NCBA in February 2018 and has been a tremendous asset from day one and we couldn’t be happier to have him take on this new challenge of running Division II. All of you will be in very good hands. To reach Garrett, you can email him at Garrett.Siemek@CollClubSports.com or by phone at 412-321-8440 x102.
