The McPherson Pipeliners announced today via Facebook that Doug Gove will be the 2020 season head coach for the team.
“I am extremely excited for the opportunity to coach for the McPherson Pipeliners organization and to build off of what we were able to do last season,” Gove said. “The amazing support of this community gives us a truly unique environment and experience.”
Gove comes with a list of qualifications as he has a bachelor’s degree in sports management. He
is the pitching coach for Central Christian College and has been doing so for two seasons. CCC is a home of sorts to him as he was recruited as a player for the Tigers when he was in college, regularly finishing top of his conference for innings pitched as well as setting school records for the same and strikeouts.
This announcement comes just after yesterday’s news that Chad Pinson would be stepping back from the Pipeliners due to health concerns. In two days’ time the Pipeliners have announced a new head in Gove as well as that the Kansas Collegiate League Baseball will be taking over the team with the help of Tyler Dunn who will step in as general manager. The future has much in store for McPherson’s boys of summer.
