Throughout the years, I've held several roles including the Hickory Hornets Travel Baseball Director and currently, President of Hickory Baseball and Head Coach for the a Hickory Hornets team. I have a great passion for growing and teaching the game of baseball. I enjoy leveraging baseball to positively influence the youth in our community and love teaching the skills of baseball in hopes the youth will transfer them to life skills.

Jeremy has been around baseball his entire life, as his father John enjoyed a 10 year MLB career with the Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies, followed by a 5 year managing career in the Detroit and Pittsburgh farm systems. Jeremy played High School and American Legion baseball in Pennsylvania, and moved to Baltimore in 1994 to study Economics and play for the Division I University of Maryland Baltimore County Retrievers.
