The Citadel head baseball coach Fred Jordan has announced the addition of Aaron Gershenfeld to the staff as the team's new volunteer assistant coach.
Gershenfeld succeeds Justin Mackert, who served in that capacity during the 2014 season but will be heading to dental school in the fall.
Gershenfeld comes to The Citadel from the University of Louisville, where he spent two seasons as a reserve catcher on the Cardinal baseball team. He was a member of a pair of College World Series teams at Louisville after transferring from Butler prior to the 2011 campaign.
"We are excited that Justin Mackert will be pursuing his career goals this fall," said Jordan. "We are also fortunate to be able to replace him with someone who comes highly recommended from the Louisville coaching staff."
The Cardinals are led by former Bulldog star and assistant coach Dan McDonnell while another former Citadel standout – Chris Lemonis – serves as McDonnell's recruiting coordinator and top assistant.
