Jamie Serber will begin his third season as an assistant coach with the Presbyterian College baseball team in 2016.
Serber, the Blue Hose pitching coach, helped the program to a PC Division I-record 27 wins in 2015 that included victories over South Carolina, Clemson, UCF (No. 7 at the time) and Indiana (No. 22 at the time). PC ended the season by winning its final seven midweek games and won 21 non-conference games, another program Division I record. Serber guided the pitching staff to new Division I records in strikeouts and strikeouts per game, fanning 7.05 batters per game—more than a full strikeout from the previous record in 2010. The Blue Hose posted winning records at the PC Baseball Complex and against other South Carolina programs in 2015 as well.
The coach has helped PC acheive two of its top three earned run averages in its Division I history in his first two years on staff.
Serber arrives after two seasons as a volunteer assistant at High Point following a four-year playing career as a Panther.
“Coach Serber is a tremendous addition to our coaching staff,” said Pollock. “Having pitched as a starter in the Big South, he knows first-hand what it takes to succeed at this level. I am excited for our players and especially our pitching staff.”
“I don’t think I could be more excited to be here at PC,” said Serber. “I’ve coached and played against PC for several years at High Point and I’m very glad to be a part of the staff here. Coach Pollock is also someone I have a lot of respect for and I’m looking forward to learning a lot under his tutelage.”
While at High Point as a coach, Serber worked with the Panthers’ pitchers while coached first base and oversaw the bullpen during games. He also served as High Point’s camp director and worked at several prestigious Top 96 camps, including the Central Florida Baseball League and prospect camps for Elon University.
This past summer, Serber served as a pitching coach for the Coastal Plain League’s Wilson Tobs. Under his guidance, the Tobs achieved their first winning season in three years and produced CPL All-Stars in Matt Borens and John Fitzsimmons, who signed with the Kansas City Royals as an undrafted free agent. The Tobs also ranked first in the league in pickoffs.
As a pitcher at High Point, Serber held the Friday starter role in the team’s rotation and helped the Panthers to a winning season in his senior year.
Serber graduated in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in sport management. He is a native of Rural Hall, N.C. and lives in Clinton.
