The Myers trio will be back again at Jane B. Moore Field this year.
Casey Myers, who left the Auburn program last winter to pursue a position with the San Diego Padres jerseys, has returned to the Tigers jerseys dugout, Auburn head coach Clint Myers confirmed with the Opelika Auburn News on Sunday.
Myers, who was a volunteer assistant with the Tigers jerseys before leaving for San Diego to become the Padres jerseys staff coordinator, will return to Auburn in the same capacity as he left earlier this year. He also worked closely with the hitters, and will resume that responsibility.
According to Clint Myers, the Padres jerseys let Casey Myers return to Auburn after the finish of the minor league season.
“He got an early release from the Padres jerseys and he’s back,” Clint Myers said. “He gave pro ball a shot, and it kind of didn’t work out the way he wanted and he’s happy to be back.
“He enjoyed the people he was with, but he missed the teaching, the coaching.”
Though the Tigers jerseys were a win away from its first national championship in school history when it lost to Oklahoma in wholesale mlb jerseys the Women’s College World Series in June, the offensive stats did take a slight down turn with Casey Myers away from the team. In 2016, the Tigers jerseys had a cumulative .317 average with Kasey Cooper being the only hitter over .400 (.422). In 2015, the team’s average was .339 with two players Emily Carosone and Tiffany Howard both with plus .400 averages.
Also in 2015 with Casey Myers on staff, the Tigers jerseys were fourth in the country in on base percentage (.460). In 2016, the Tigers jerseys were fifth in the country in that category with a .436 mark.
Hunter Veach, who stepped in as volunteer coach after Casey Myers’ departure last season, is still on the staff and will serve as manager. Corey Myers was promoted to associate head coach in August and Scott Woodard remains assistant coach.
The team officially reports on Sept. 16 with Casey Myers being back in full capacity when camp opens.
“They (the players) were very excited,” Clint Myers said. “We told them when we went to the Atlanta Braves jerseys game (against the Padres jerseys on Sept. 1). The new ones haven’t had a chance to work with him yet, but the other girls, they were so excited.”
Myers, who was recently named to the Arizona State Athletics jerseys Hall of Fame, was drafted out of ASU in the 30th round of the 2000 MLB June Amateur Draft but elected to return to school. He was then drafted in the ninth round by the Oakland Athletics jerseys in the 2001 Amateur Draft.
After his minor league career, which lasted five seasons playing within the Oakland farm system reaching as high as AA, Casey Myers was a hitting coach with the Vancouver Canadians, which at the time was a Class A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics jerseys. He also was on the coaching staff of the A’s affiliate teams the Vermont Lake Monsters (short season A) and the Beloit Snappers (A) before coming to Auburn when his father was hired in 2013.
