The latest guest on The Base Path Podcast is widely recognized as one of the top D1 coaches in college baseball — Duke skipper Chris Pollard.
In his 10 years at Duke, Pollard has made Duke somewhat of a destination for New England baseball prospects who want to take their talents to warmer weather down south.
The Davidson College alumnus has led the program to unprecedented success in his 10-plus years at the school. Duke has advanced to two Super Regionals and claimed the first ACC Tournament championship in program history under Pollard.
This year’s roster is evidence of Pollard’s recruitment of New England players. Six New England natives are on the Duke roster heading into the 2023 season.
