The Brookings Friends of Baseball executive board named Carter Roach as the next head coach of the Brookings Bandits senior legion baseball team. The appointment became official at the board's Nov. 15 meeting.
Roach has been an assistant coach for both the Brookings Bobcats high school varsity team and the senior Legion Post 74 team. He was also an assistant for the Yankton Post 12 Legion team during the summer 2020 season. He served as the head coach for the Bobcat junior varsity team in 2018 and 2019 and began his coaching career in spring 2017 as the head coach of the Bobcats freshman team.
Roach was a member of Brookings’ 2012 South Dakota Legion championship team and the 2014 team that finished third. After graduating from Brookings High School, he attended Century College in Minnesota from 2015-16, where he helped lead to the program to a pair of top five finishes at the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III World Series. He has continued to play South Dakota Amateur Baseball since 2015.
After attending Century College, Roach returned to Brookings where he earned a degree in physical education/teacher education from South Dakota State University.
Roach replaces Rob Hirrschoff, who became an assistant baseball coach the University of Sioux Falls in January 2021.
Congratulations to the Brookings Post 74 Chutes on becoming the 2021 South Dakota Junior Legion State Champions!!! They started the weekend with a win over Rapid City Post 320. Then after a tough loss to Sioux Falls East they rallied to wins over Sioux Falls West and Rapid City Post 22 on Sunday and back-to-back wins over Sioux Falls East on Monday to earn the title. Extra congratulations to Nathan Lease on being named tournament MVP.
Incredibly proud of their effort and attitudes on and off the field. Throughout the weekend several people commented on their sportsmanship and how polite the team was. They represented Brookings, the American Legion Post 74, and Friends of Baseball with class.
