More from D-BAT:
D-BAT Asheville is honored to introduce UNCA Head Coach Scott Friedholm as one of the newest and most accomplished baseball instructors on staff. Scott’s passion and love for the game has allowed for this unique opportunity for him to open his schedule up to those local players who want to learn the fundamentals from one of the very best coaches in the community!
Coach Friedholm came to Asheville from Boston College, where he spent four seasons as Recruiting Coordinator and Pitching Coach. He worked to make the 2014 the best season for the BC staff, registering an ERA of 4.27, a four-season low. The Eagles also tallied 352 strikeouts and a .261 opponent batting average over 489 innings.
He spent five years at the US Naval Academy in the same roles. Coach Friedholm guided the pitching staff to the highest five-year win (149), strikeout (1,757) and save (59) totals among any other five-year stretch. He developed the first two pitchers to ever be drafted out of Navy while also mentoring 12 All-Conference selections, three Freshman All-Americans, and one All-American. The Midshipmen won 30 games in four of the five years he was at Navy. The program had done that just three times in the previous 110 years.
Prior to arriving in Annapolis, Coach Friedholm spent four seasons in the same capacity at the University of Maine, producing three MLB draft picks from his staff and also helping guide the Black Bears to two NCAA Tournament appearances. His staff at Maine ranked amongst the top 25 in the country in ERA two of his four seasons. Friedholm also served as the pitching coach for two seasons at Bryant, where the Bulldogs set school records in both overall and Northeast-10 Conference wins in consecutive years.
Coach Friedholm played four seasons at Providence College as a catcher from 1995-1998. As a freshman, he was part of the Friars squad that won 44 games and a program-record 16 Big East games that earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament. He earned All-Big East and All-Region honors in 1996 and then as a senior, he hit .395 with 13 homeruns and school-record 66 RBI, earning All-American honors. He signed a free agent contract with the Tampa Bay organization in June 1998.
Scott graduated from Providence in 1998 with a B.A. in History. He and his wife, Angie, have two sons, Cooper (7) and Camden (4).
