College: Williston State College
From a young age I have always wanted to learn more, to expand my knowledge of the game. I have always enjoyed breaking things down, and helping my teammates get better with advice on hitting or baserunning. I have always been a student of the game.
I wasn’t the best player on the teams I played for, but I was usually one of the more heads up players, taking the extra base, making heads up plays in the field, always being aware of what was going on. I didn’t have colleges knocking down my door, but I attended a Cincinnati Reds Try Out in 2001, and the scouts liked what they saw, and suggested areas in the US to go play college ball.
I am looking for a coaching opportunity to further my career, and stay in the game. My coaching experience is in the areas of hitting, infielding, baserunning, and 1st base coach. I can also work with pitchers and catchers if needed. I am also the main batting practice thrower for the team that I coach. At this point in my career I am more coach than player. I am also open to signing for multiple years.

I played under Nolan Cherniwchan for the Garden City Wind for the 2018 season of the 2018 Pecos League of Professional Baseball. From day one you could see that Nolan’s Love for the game was strong. He was dedicated to working with players and help them to improve to move up to the next level. A terrific players manager with an open door policy, Nolan was very easy to approach and discuss with all aspects of baseball, he highly respects is players input into the game. Whether it was players showing up for early work, or staying after games to work on little aspects of the game, Nolan was always present and ready to hit fungos and throw BP, and was always last one to leave the office. Throughout the course of a long season, Nolan’s support and belief in his players never waivered, and his professionalism was excellent.
I will always consider (Nolan) as a manager I loved playing for. He has a good understanding of the game and trusts his players.
He provides a clubhouse environment that allows players to thrive and excel. His “open door” policy allows his players to take responsibility for their careers but he is also willing to keep his players accountable.
Nolan is devoted to learning and growing as a coach and he fosters a “growth mindset” in his players as well.
It was a pleasure and I consider myself lucky for the opportunity Nolan gave me.
