Torrington Titans re-sign Hunt as Field Manager

Torrington, CT- Torrington native Gregg Hunt, former manager of the Torrington Twisters and Manchester Silkworms of the New England Collegiate Baseball League, as well as the Torrington Titans of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League, has signed as field manager to lead the 2011 Titans in their quest for the inaugural Futures Collegiate Baseball League Championship.

He began managing the Torrington Twisters in 1997 when they were first brought to Torrington. Leading the team to five first-place finishes and four appearances in the NECBL championship series. Hunt managed the Manchester Silkworms in the NECBL during the 2009 campaign when the Twisters left Torrington. He is also the all-time winningest coach in NECBL history.

Hunt is no stranger to big time baseball. Throughout his collegiate summer coaching career, coach has seen big league talent come through Torrington. With the likes of 2009 1st Overall pick in the MLB Draft, Washington Nationals big leaguer Stephen Strasburg, is just one of the four first round picks Hunt has managed as well as numerous minor league players.

At the high school level, he has coached baseball at Thomaston and Terryville (Conn.) High Schools. He is currently the varsity head coach at Wamogo (Conn.) High School for both the boys baseball and basketball programs. “Torrington is a great baseball city, always has been, and I’m excited to have baseball return to Torrington with the Futures Collegiate Baseball League“ Said Hunt.

The Titans will join the Martha's Vineyard Sharks, the Seacoast Mavericks and the Nashua Silver Knights in the inaugural season of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League. The FCBL provides student-athletes from New England and New England Colleges the opportunity to compete and play with the elite players from across the country and to promote them to MLB organizations. Each roster must contain at least 13 players from New England or from a New England University/College. In addition, the Futures Collegiate Baseball League will provide a family friendly, affordable, and fun experience for the communities that we play in, in a minor league style setting.
