Guzman, Hackett, Hicks, McCurry and Muizelaar tabbed Assistant Coaches for 2019 Men’s National Team

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 11, 2019

OKLAHOMA CITY – USA Softball has announced the USA Softball Men’s National (MNT) assistant coaches that will join Head Coach Gregg Leather (Staten Island, N.Y.) during the 2019 season.

Ron Guzman (Salinas, Calif.), Ron Hackett (Richmond, Va.), Greg Hicks (Bakersfield, Calif.), Nick McCurry (Ashland, Ohio) and Gerald Muizelaar (Grand Forks, N.D.) will assist Leather as the team competes at the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Men’s World Championship in Prague, Czech Republic, the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru and select international events on the 2019 calendar.

This will be the first stint on the coaching staff for Hackett and Muizelaar while Guzman, Hicks and McCurry have each previously held roles on the MNT coaching staff.

Guzman, along with Hicks and McCurry, helped lead the 2018 U.S. team that competed at the Intercontinental Cup in Prague, Czech Republic. Despite a 1-4 showing at the event, Team USA proved they are a Top Five contender with a 5-4, walk-off win over Argentina.

“I am extremely honored to be a part of the USA Softball Men’s National Team program this summer,” said Guzman. “I’m looking forward to working with Coach Leather and the entire staff. This is the absolute pinnacle in your career to be able to wear the Red, White and Blue while representing your country.”

Hicks and McCurry have served as Assistant Coaches for the MNT since the 2014 season. In their tenure with Team USA, the duo has coached at two WBSC Men’s World Championships and the 2015 Pan American Games.

“As a player or coach, the highest honor you could ever get is to represent the United States,” said McCurry. “There is no better feeling to have a jersey with ‘USA’ on your chest. I’m very thankful that I am chosen for this prestigious honor. Softball has been in my blood ever since I was a very young man. I want to thank everyone that is involved in USA Softball for selecting me. I will never forget this honor. We are looking forward to working with the athletes to win a Gold Medal.”

Hicks and McCurry were also a part of the 2017 coaching staff that helped Team USA claim the Bronze Medal at the Pan American Championship – the first international medal for the U.S. since 2003.

“Being selected to be part of the coaching staff for the 2019 season is very special,” said Hicks. “Any time you can stand on a ball field with ‘USA’ across your chest – it is an unbelievable feeling and never gets old. I feel unbelievably blessed with the opportunity to represent my country in international competition. It is a unique experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

Hackett joins the USA Softball MNT program for his first stint as Assistant Coach after being around the men’s game for a number of years. A native of Elkland, Pa., a hotbed for men’s fast pitch, Hackett played a number of years at the men’s major level. Beginning in 2015, Hackett transitioned into administrative roles, coaching and sponsoring several teams who finished in the Top 5 at the Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship.

“It’s an honor to be selected as part of the Men’s National Team coaching staff,” said Hackett. “To represent your country competing against the best in the world is the pinnacle of our sport. I’m humbled and appreciative for the opportunity USA Softball has given us to represent our country this year.”

Muizelaar is making his first appearance as a coach for the MNT program, though he packs plenty of experience as an alumni of the program. A member of the 2013-2015 MNT rosters, Muizelaar competed in two WBSC Men’s World Championships and the 2015 Pan American Games. Muizelaar compiled a 2-3 record in 36 and one-third innings in the circle for Team USA at the World Championships, fanning 53 batters while he went 1-0 at the Pan American Games with 11 strikeouts in 10 and two-third innings pitched.

“I am very excited to continue my involvement with the USA Softball Men’s National Team,” said Muizelaar. “I know that my desire to compete on the field will never go away, but I look forward to the new challenge of coaching this group of talented athletes. With the right preparation, I believe that we can compete with the best in the world and have a legitimate opportunity to achieve our goal of winning Gold this summer.”

Baseball and softball not included among shortlisted sports by Paris Organizing Committee for 2024 Olympics

Baseball and softball not included among shortlisted sports by Paris Organizing Committee for 2024 Olympics

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 26, 2019
Web Release: Link

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Paris Organizing Committee met recently to determine which sports would make up the 2024 Olympic Program and decided upon breakdancing, surfing, skateboarding and sport climbing to make the final cut of shortlisted sports.

The decision comes after the groundbreaking Olympic Agenda 2020 passed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that gives Olympic host cities the right to propose sports that are popular in the host country and add to the appeal of the Games.

“We’ve taken our time to truly take in what Paris 2024’s decision means, not only to USA Softball as a whole but to the sport that means so much to people all around the globe,” said USA Softball Chief Executive Officer, Craig Cress. “While disheartening, the response we’ve seen from the softball community is a resounding display that our sport will continue to thrive and grow. We won’t give up, the work never ends – but we can promise you that our athletes will continue to compete each year and proudly represent our great nation on the international stage and we encourage fans to continue their loyal support of softball. We also stand with the international softball community in the fight for inclusion in future Olympic Games and we will continue to work with groups who value the growth of our sport both domestically and internationally.”

The IOC still needs to give final approval to the choices made by the Paris 2024 organizers during the executive board in December 2020.

    MINNEAPOLIS – Northwest Paper of Cloquet, Minnesota’s ASA Northern Regional champion, shocked favored Farmington, New Mexico, 2-1, in one of the tightest games of the day.

    BOBO JOHNSON set the Builders down on two hits, one of them a 250-foot home run by Gehrig Garrison in the first inning. The only other hit was in the sixth, but fine defensive work prevented what could have been the tying score.

    Cloquet didn’t get a man on base until the fourth, which LES SALO opened with an infield hit. He was sacrificed to second and scored on JIM ARNTSON’S single to left. Arntson took second on an error and scored on a blooper to center by Dave Holmes.
