LAWRENCEVILLE: Ga. Gwinnett College hires first baseball coach

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Georgia's newest four-year public college in more than a century has hired its first baseball coach.

Brad Stromdahl has been named head coach for Georgia Gwinnett College. Stromdahl comes to the suburban Atlanta college from Georgia State University, where he was the assistant coach to Greg Frady.

Stromdahl is a former catcher who played professionally for independent baseball leagues. He's also coached at Southwest Minnesota State, Marshall University in West Virginia and Central Michigan University.

He is the first in planned coaching hires as Georgia Gwinnett builds its Grizzlies intercollegiate athletics program from scratch.

The college has applied to become a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and plans men's and women's soccer, men's and women's tennis, softball and baseball.

The college opened five years ago.
