By PAUL STURM, C-T Sports Editor
Tai Mitchell, an assistant coach for the Chillicothe Mudcats college-level summer baseball team during the 2013 season has been selected by the organization to be its head coach for next season.
Mitchell is a native of Santa Clara,Calif., who played one year at the University of Kansas after two years at De Anza College, a San Francisco-area community college. He will succeed Eric Peterson, who served as head coach for two years.
"I'm excited,Mitchell commented on his appointment. I was blown away this year. We had the best offense in the league and it wasn't even close."
"I can't wait to get back out there."
Commented Butch Shaffer, president of the teams oversight board and fellow Kansas alumnus, he is a worker. He is dedicated to his job and wants to see his players improve. He is always looking for ways to improve his coaching skills and wants to improve the players skills as well. The board is looking forward to working with Tai.
Looking ahead to the 2014 season, the new head coach commented, "I'm hoping to have quite a few returning players. Initial input is there are a lot of guys who'd like to return."
Mitchell also will succeed Peterson as director of baseball operations at the University of Kansas during the 2013-14 school year. Peterson resigned that post after one year to accept the job as assistant pitching coach for Eastern Michigan University.
In two years in Chillicothe, Peterson guided the Mudcats to a composite 59-42 won-lost record.
