Head Coach: Cliff Smith
Elizabethtown College named Cliff Smith head coach of its baseball program in December 2006. Smith was most recently an assistant coach at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine and an educational technician in the special education department at Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham, Maine.
Only the ninth head coach in the history of the Elizabethtown College baseball program, he guided the team to its 1,000th all-time victory, a Commonwealth Conference title and an NCAA Division III tournament appearance in his first season at the Blue Jays' helm.
The Bowdoin College baseball team set a school record in wins, went 28-10 overall and advanced to the NCAA Division III tournament in 2006 with Smith as an assistant. At Bowdoin, he was involved in recruiting, fundraising, developing off-season strength and conditioning programs, instruction in skills and strategy, and day-to-day managerial duties. He worked as the pitching coach, managed Bowdoin’s recruiting files and database, and coordinated all recruiting visits as well. The Bowdoin pitching staff had a 3.30 team earned run average in 2006.
A 2001 alumnus of Brandeis University with a B.A. in history, Smith played minor league baseball from 2001 to 2005. During the off-seasons, he was also an assistant pitching coach, equipment room assistant and basketball scoreboard operator at Brandeis as well as a substitute teacher in the Haverhill (Mass.) School Department. Although a native of Massachusetts and a resident of New England for most of his life, Smith is no stranger to central Pennsylvania, as he played for the Lancaster Barnstormers minor league team in 2005. He also spent four years in the Anaheim Angels minor league system.
The Elizabethtown College baseball team finished 23-18 overall, won the Commonwealth Conference championship and competed in the NCAA Division III tournament in 2007, Smith's first season as the Blue Jays' head coach.
