Sorge leaving ’Bows

The UH hitting coach is
resigning effective the end
of next month after just 1 season

By Al Chase

Hawaii assistant baseball coach Josh Sorge will not return to the program next season.

"Josh and I met in a season-ending meeting Tuesday morning and came to a mutual agreement," said Hawaii head coach Mike Trapasso, who said Sorge will resign effective June 30.

"We wish Josh all the best and know he will be successful in his next coaching position. We now have to do what's best for our program and hire a hitting coach."

Trapasso said he has not set a timetable for hiring a new coach.

"I would like someone in place in the next 30 days. But I have to meet with our administration and find out what the process is and what the rules and regulations are," Trapasso said.

Recruiting season for 2004 begins soon, and the more eyes there are out there representing UH, the better.

Sorge was a volunteer coach at Georgia Tech for two seasons and was Trapasso's first hire after taking over the UH program.

He played his college ball at Ohio University and earned All-American honors as a designated hitter his senior year.
