GLSCL mourns the loss of Bernie "Chico" Labute
Date: Jan 18, 2019
LIMA, OH- With 109 days left until the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League season begins we have some very exciting news coming from the Lima coaching staff. Brian Garman, the pitching coach for the Lima Locos, has accepted an assistant coach position with the Inland Empire 66ers. The 66ers operate for the Los Angeles Angels Advanced Class A Affiliate in the California League, located in San Bernardino, California. Last year Lima finished with an overall record of 30-11 and the 2017 GLSCL champions. Additionally, they finished off with a league-low ERA (3.22) and a league-low in opposing batting averages (.230). When asked about the next step in his career, Garman responded:
“I want to thank coach Kory Hartman for the opportunity he gave me to join his staff,” said Garman. “This baseball program’s success is a testament to his desire to achieve success and the relentless pursuit of being a national contender. As I move on to join the Angels, I am leaving with total confidence that coach Stanley will easily fill the pitching coach role and continue the tradition that I was fortunate enough to inherit,” added Garman. “My future is full of uncertainty, which I am willing to embrace. I am prepared to move on, as I have had the good fortune to learn from each baseball coach on staff at UNOH.”
As we begin our 2018 season, we want to thank coach Garman for the time that he not only put into the game but the time he gave back to all young athletes involved in the Lima Locos organization. Best of luck in the big leagues Coach Garman!
