Snell and Fox to lead Shoreline baseball

300_2109x Baseball 2013_webThe Shoreline Community College baseball team will head into the 2014 season with tandem of Dave Snell and Travis Fox sharing the head coaching duties.

Fox brings 12 years of experience as a player and coach with the past three years as an assistant at Shoreline.

Snell is also moving up from an assistant position at Shoreline. Snell was a high-school star at Ingraham and was drafted as a pitcher by the San Francisco Giants. He signed with the Kansas City Royals in 1983 and played in the Seattle Mariners minor League system. A Shoreline resident, Snell founded the Seattle Select Baseball program in 2005. His son, Blake, was drafted in 2011 by the Tampa Bay Rays after playing for Shorewood High School.

Fox and Snell are taking over from Ryan Browne, who resigned after three years leading the Dolphins squad, according to Acting Athletic Director Steve Eskridge.

The Shoreline baseball team finished 21-21-1, the best record since the 1990 when the team was 19-18. Four players from the 2013 squad were named to the NWAACC All-Academic Team posting at least a 3.25 GPA. Those recipients were:  Skyler Fraiser, Vancouver, Wash.; Nic Van Der Ven, Seattle; Leonel Delmar, Maracaibo, Venezuela, and Jason Shaw, Lynnwood.
