MEET THE COACH
Coach Greg Ball,
Baseball Camp Director
(First Year at Fessenden)
Greg Ball grew up in Orlando, FL and started playing baseball at a young age. He fell in love with the sport and competed year round throughout high school. Greg was a four-year starting pitcher and first baseman at Principia College, and broke a number of records including wins, strikeouts, and earned run average (ERA). He was appointed team captain for his junior and senior seasons. During his summers in college, Greg played in a competitive wood-bat summer league in Colorado. After graduation, he travelled to Europe to play professional baseball in Sweden and Belgium while coaching a number of international youth baseball teams. Realizing that coaching brought him a ton of joy, he decided to pursue this passion full-time. Greg has been coaching for the past eight years as both an assistant collegiate coach and head varsity high school coach, including summers at IMG Academy in south Florida and B1 Academy in Los Angeles. Greg is currently the lower school physical education teacher at Fessenden and the assistant coach for the baseball team.
