Ulmschneider said adding both to the Bay Sox program is a considerable asset for high school players hoping to play college baseball.
“The three of us have a shared vision for how to help our players get recruited and take the Bay Sox to the next level,” he said.
Both Manfredo and Prince have established reputations as strong tacticians and recruiters.
Manfredo was named the 2021 MASCAC Coach of the Year after guiding Fitchburg State to a regular season conference championship in his first full season. His track record of pitching development includes working with multiple future professionals at UMass Dartmouth, and he worked as the pitching coach for a Hyannis HarborHawks Cape Cod League pitching staff in 2015 that included four future major league starters – Aaron Civale, Dakota Hudson, Michael King and Devin Smeltzer.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to join the 3STEP family and to work with players and families on the South Shore,” Manfredo said.
“Helping families navigate the difficult and changing scope of college baseball recruiting while focusing on growth and player development is something that we will excel in.”
Prince helped restore UMass Dartmouth’s reputation in the Little East Conference, a stint which includes helping develop the Little East Conference’s Player of the Year (Ryan Medeiros) in 2014, and serves as the Wareham Gatemen’s general manager in the Cape Cod League.
“I’m excited to be combining with the Bay Sox as they have established themselves as one of the premier travel programs in Southeastern Mass and Rhode Island,” Prince said.
Together, the duo plans to lead the Bay Sox expansion at the high school level across Southern New England. Looking to join the Bay Sox program? Find tryout registration information HERE.
