Bob MacDonald Named AquaSox Hitting Coach
Former longtime UW baseball coach Bob MacDonald has been named the hitting coach for the Seattle Mariners affiliate Everett AquaSox, the Northwest League club announced today.
MacDonald served as the Huskies' head coach from 1977 to 1992 before leaving for the U.S. Naval Academy. After one year as an assistant, he was the Navy head coach for seven years.
"Mac" was also a pitcher at the UW, earning varsity letters in 1962 and 1964. When he left as the Husky head coach, he'd compiled 422 wins, most in Husky history at the time. He was named to the Husky Baseball All-Century Team as a coach.
Since retiring from Navy, MacDonald has lived in the area and helped out the Mariners organization as a batting practice pitcher, among other activities.
The AquaSox, the short-season A-ball affiliate of the Mariners, begin their season June 20 at Vancouver and open the home slate June 23 against Spokane.
