The North Plainfield, New Jersey native spearheaded a pitching staff that led the league in strikeouts (997) and finished second in ERA (3.62), WHIP (1.29), BAA (.253) and walks allowed (335) in his first season as pitching coach. He also played an integral role in putting together a roster that finished with the best overall record in the Liberty Division.
