Shane Herschelman | Assistant Coach
Shane Herschelman joins Dan Davis and the Truman Baseball team as an assistant coach for the 2017-18 season. Herschlman was previously an assistant and pitching coach at his alma mater, Maryville University for the past two years.
Herschelman was a four-year relief pitcher for the Saints from 2011-2014 and broke the single-season and career record in appearances. He was a two-time all-conference hurler and a member of the Illinois Class 1A State Championship team at Lincolnwood High School in Raymond, Illinois.
Following his playing stint at Maryville, he volunteered for a season at William Woods University in Fulton where the team tied a school record for wins in a season and finished second in the country in earned run average.
He rejoined Maryville and coached the pitching staff to school records in strikeouts, wins, hits allowed, innings pitched and opponent’s batting average. Maryville also had the school’s first Major League Baseball’s draft pick during Herschelman’s tenure when pitcher Robbie Gordon was selected in the 36th round by the St. Louis Cardinals. Two pitchers, including Gordon, were the first two hurlers to earn all-conference for the Saints and the team set a school record for wins in the 2017 season.
Herschelman served for one year as an assistant coach for the St. Louis Prospects Baseball Club.
