Next spring will be Mike Grant's 12th season in charge the Belmont Hill baseball team. Throughout his time here, success has never come into question. Grant has taken an already established program and made it better. Under his watch, Belmont Hill has won four Independent School League championships, including three straight from 2012-14. In all, the Sextants have claimed 16 league titles since the school's inception in 1923.
Taking over for legendary coach Ed Gallagher in 2011, Grant's won-loss record sits at a remarkable 145-39 (113-23 in ISL play).
"We dwindle our philosophies down to three program pillars,'' said Grant. "To be the hardest working program in New England, to compete and to support each other.''
Raised in Mendon, Mass., Grant was a standout second baseman at Nipmuc Regional High before moving on to play at Amherst College. Upon graduation from Amherst, he remained as an assistant coach before landing coaching stints at Northeastern University and Babson College. In addition, Grant also spent time as an assistant with the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod Baseball League. After making his way to Belmont Hill, Grant first served as an educator (English and history) before moving to an administrative role. Currently, he is Assistant Head of School and Dean of Faculty.
