Maryland Eastern Shore announced the hiring of Ben Kirk as an assistant coach for baseball on December 18th, 2017. 

Kirk jumped right into the coaching circuit at his alma mater, Messiah College.

played catcher. He enjoyed a splendid career for the Falcons, starting all four seasons there and claiming three All-Conference selections.

During Kirk’s junior season Messiah College polished off 28 victories to win the MAC Commonwealth Championship, earning a place at the NCAA Division III Regionals.
