“Eddy brings a great deal of playing experience,” Dean said. “He played men’s fastpitch for 15 years, including seven years on the United States national team. He’s also coached championship-level ball with his team winning the PGF national championship last summer.
“Eddy is a grinder. He’s brings a great deal of knowledge to the game. He’s a hard worker and a good family man. I think he fits really well with our staff.”
Ketelhut was most recently the head coach of the Beverly Bandits 16U club team that went 68-6 over the last two seasons and won two titles, including the Triple Crown National Championship.
Before arriving on The Plains, Ketelhut was the owner and instructor for EK Fastpitch LLC, beginning in 2010. There, he provided lessons and clinics for elite travel teams.
