PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland — The University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s new head baseball coach, Brian Hollamon, has been busy since being named to the position. As an alumnus of Maryland Eastern Shore, and a long-time resident of the area, Hollamon came back to Princess Anne with a vision of what Hawk Baseball should look like. A huge part of that is the facilities in which they practice and play. And even more importantly, he wants the best student-athlete experience for his Hawks that they can have.

“The opportunity for me is to continue their growth and watch these young men develop and go on to whatever they want to do after they graduate from college,” Hollamon said upon his hiring. “Our goal is going to be to not only give them an opportunity to play baseball, but also get their education and be successful human beings.”

Former coaches John O’Neil and Chris Constantine helped start ‘The Dugout Club’ several years ago and Hollamon hopes to build on their idea to create a program that encourages donations to the team at various membership levels, not only allowing, friends, fans, alumni and family to make a financial contribution, but in return receiving official Hawk baseball newsletters and gear, giving the feeling of being a true part of the program.



Donation levels start at $50 and continue up through $1,000. The fund will also accept any other donation amount that Hawk supporters want to give. Corporate donations, goods and services or other gifts can also be made by contacting Coach Hollamon directly.

The fundraiser is dedicated to supporting Hawk Baseball with members playing a direct role in facilitating the valuable activities and operations that enhance both the quality of the program and the experience of the players. Currently funds will be used to help add in-ground irrigation, excavation, new sod, infield mix, fencing, scoreboards and storage as well as field care equipment for Hawk Stadium.

“We know that making financial commitments to anything isn’t an easy decision,” said Hollamon. “But please know that our staff and players appreciate your help. You are making a difference in the baseball program, department of athletics, and entire university. You are helping build on the legacy of our former Hawks through today’s student-athlete.”

Fans can make a contribution online or by mail in the information portion of the form found on www.easternshorehawks.com/baseball. Questions can be directed to G. Stan Bradley, Associate Director of Athletics for External Affairs at 410-651-6499 or at gsbradley@umes.edu.

‘The Dugout Club’ is an activity of the UMES Foundation. Funds received will be managed by the University System of Maryland Foundation, Inc. to benefit the Maryland Eastern Shore Baseball Program.
