Eric Coleman is back for his 6th season as the head coach for the Danvile Dans. It will be his 18th year coaching in summer collegiate leagues.
Last year was a record-setter for the Dans. Coleman recorded his 100 regular season victory with the Dans (and ended the year with a 128-112 record). The Dans also set another stolen base record by swiping 163 bases, breaking the old mark by 27 steals. And the Dans pitching staff struck out a record 575 batters - nearly one in every four batter faced.
Coleman has been a coach or assistant coach in summer collegiate leagues for fourteen previous years, along with three seasons in the Frontier League.
Coleman is again looking forward to being in Danville. “In all the other summer leagues I’ve been in, you hear about the reputation and history of the Danville Dans. I learned first-hand the last four years that this was all true. I’m looking forward to another great season in 2021.”
