St. Joseph’s announced today that it has hired Fritz Hamburg to take over as its new head coach. Hamburg has spent the last eight years as associate head coach and pitching coach at Army, where he was named the American Baseball Coaches Association/Baseball America assistant coach of the year in 2007. Hamburg is one of the most respected coaches in the Northeast for his ability to identify and develop talent. He has a reputation as a gifted instructor of pitching, and getting the native of Doylestown, Pa., was a coup for the Hawks.
"My family and I are very excited to return to Philadelphia," Hamburg said. "I am certainly looking forward to the chance to work with a group of young men that is eager to succeed. I’m excited about helping this program grow and building on the foundation that was developed by my predecessors."
Hamburg replaces Lee Saverio, who had served as interim head coach in 2008.
