FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARTINSVILLE, VA – The Martinsville Mustangs and NEXT P.L.A.N. Athletics have announced Kregg Snook will return to Martinsville as head coach for the 2023 season.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to come back to Martinsville, ” Snook said. “I can’t think of a better group of people to be around during the summer than the people involved in this organization.”
Snook, a Houston, Texas native, is currently in his second year as the head coach at Clarendon College, in NJCAA Region 5 and returns to Martinsville after previously spending two summers with the Mustangs.
In 2018, as the Mustangs pitching coach, Snook helped guide starting pitcher Addison Domingo to a league-low 1.59 ERA and first-team All-CPL Selection. He also guided right-hander Lowell Schipper to second-team All-CPL honors.
In 2019, Snook served as the Head Coach in Martinsville. He was able to produce three CPL All Stars, as well as one CPL Select team member. The 2019 summer also saw four pitchers off the 2018 squad sign professional contracts (Greg Leban – Atlanta Braves, Gavin Weyman – Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers, Charlie Hasty – Sioux Falls Canaries, Ryan Evans – Lancaster Barnstormers). 2019 Mustang Davis Palermo was also selected in the 8th round of the 2022 MLB Draft.
As a player, Snook played a key role out of the bullpen for the University of Arkansas at Monticello, setting a school record with 30 appearances in 2014. Before UAM, he attended Abilene Christian University, as well as Clarendon College.
Martinsville will open its 19th season in the CPL in May 2023. Stay tuned to martinsvillemustangs.com for the latest schedule news and ticket information.
