Randal Ortiz enters his first season as an assistant coach for the Catawba Valley baseball program in 2019-20.
A catcher and third baseman on the Red Hawks' 2015 World Series team, Ortiz will serve as an assistant volunteer coach working primarily with catchers.
"I am excited to re-join CVCC as a coach," Ortiz said. "A big thank you goes out to coach Rozzelle for the opportunity. I am ready for this challenge. I am a little nervous since it will be my first year coaching, but I am just going to use all of my experience and years of playing baseball and transfer that to the all of the players. I'm definitely ready to help the team in every way that I can, and hopefully help them reach the goal of going back to the World Series and winning a national championship."
