With major pieces from another Division 2 College World Series team gone and a new head coach taking the controls, it may look and feel a lot like Southern New Hampshire is starting up a new baseball era this year.
As some things change, others will, indeed, be staying the same.
When Scott Loiseau (Worcester, Mass.) left his longtime post in Manchester to join former Boston College coach Mike Gambino’s staff at Penn State back in July, the Penmen didn’t look far to find a new, but very familiar skipper in Chris Shank (Westminster, Mass.).
“SNHU is a place that I’ve held close to my heart because of the amount of time that I spent here in the past,” said Shank, who spent eight seasons (2009-16) alongside Loiseau building the perennial East Region and national powerhouse that is well known today.
