Tabor College is pleased to announce the addition of Andy Davis as the new assistant baseball coach for the Bluejays. Rusty Allen, vice president for intercollegiate athletics and Head Coach Mark Standiford made the announcement.

“We are looking forward to having Andy work with our baseball program. He has the kind of experience as a player and a coach that prepares him to teach, motivate and recruit. It is a bonus that he played baseball for and graduated from Hesston College,” Allen said. “His commitment to Christ and passion for integrating his faith into his work as a coach will go a long way toward helping us accomplish the mission of the Tabor athletic department.”

Davis has degrees from Hesston College and a Bachelor’s in education and Master’s in exercise science, both from Pittsburg State University. Most recently he has served as the assistant coach at Peru State College in Nebraska.

Coach Standiford affirmed that the talent Davis brings to coaching staff will move the team forward, building upon the success experienced by the team in the 2012. “He brings a wealth of knowledge with him from his time as a player at Pittsburgh State and coach at Peru State College,” Standiford noted. “His knowledge on pitching and his ability to communicate will no doubt make our pitching staff better. Andy is man of strong character and faith and will be a great asset for our team both on and off the field.”
