College of Charleston head baseball coach Matt Heath announced the final addition to his staff with the return of CofC baseball alum Jimmy Holton (Class of ’14) as volunteer assistant coach on Tuesday.
A former catcher and student assistant coach at CofC, Holton will coach the program’s catchers and assist Heath with the pitching staff.
Holton returns to his alma mater after spending the 2015 season as an assistant coach for crosstown rival Charleston Southern, where he worked primarily with hitters and catchers, while also coaching third base.
Prior to CSU, Holton served as an undergraduate assistant coach for the Cougars as they won a CAA championship title and advanced to the Lubbock Super Regional in 2014. He also assisted with the pitching staff, which set school records for wins and ERA.
As the team’s catcher from 2010-13, he was a member of two NCAA Regional squads and finished his career with 20 runs scored and 13 RBIs. Holton made 553 putouts behind the plate with 68 career assists for a .989 fielding percentage over the course of four years.
The South Carolina Stingrays agreed to terms with defenseman Brendan Ellis.
Ellis, 26, missed the 2014-15 season due to injury, but was active with the team off the ice and in the Charleston community. The Kelowna, British Columbia, native dressed in eight games with the Stingrays at the end of the 2013-14 campaign, earning five assists, after completing a four-year career at Merrimack College. With Merrimack, Ellis totaled 58 points (seven goals, 51 assists) in 133 games and served as an alternate captain during the 2012-13 season.
