Nick McBride - Frisco Roughriders
Nick will be coaching again for the NTX Spartans this summer. He was drafted in the 5th round by the Texas Rangers in 2009. He has played at every minor league level from A to AAA. He injured his arm and had a long recovery. After some independent ball, he decided to focus on coaching and his new family.
NTX Spartans coach, Jeremy Hazelbaker, has been traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Jeremy was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks in November of 2016. Jeremy posted a respectable .775 OPS over 114 games with the Cardinals in the 2016 season, but the team risked losing him by removing him from the 40-man roster, and the Diamondbacks decided to snatch him up. The Diamondbacks currently have a multitude of outfield options on the roster, so it remains to be seen where exactly Jeremy fits in with the team. However, he will likely at least have a chance to win a job during spring training.
He originally made the MLB Cardinals opening day roster after 7 seasons and over 751 minor league games. After starting off hot and then struggling a little, he was sent back down to AAA. He performed very well batting .325 and was called back up.
Jeremy is a great guy, a incredible player, and an inspiration for all young athletes. He is humble about his skills, but behind his quiet and relaxed demeanor is a guy that works very hard and has an amazing passion for the game. Our organization was privileged and honored to have him help develop our players and coach some games. We will miss him, but wish him the very best!!
-- Jeremy, continue to do all you do with No Regrets!
