Two days ago, we pointed to an article about German National Team head coach Greg Frady on Baseball Digest. Today we send you the link to the website of the German Embassy in the United States, which also reported on him. The article even was published right at the top of the front page.
After considering several national candidates, the American Greg Frady entered the picture. He had a successful track record of turning around sports teams three times before and when coach Jesco Veisz flew to Orlando where Frady was associate head coach at the University of Central Florida, he knew that they had their man. “He was the best we could get,“ said Jürgen Elsishans, Vice President of the German Baseball and Softball Federation.
When Greg Frady moved to Germany, not only did the beautiful surroundings of the Main River seem like a fairytale to him, also the attitude and the hard work of the players were a dream come true. In just 8 months, he made a new beginning and revamped the team. “I have some German heritage on my father’s side and I am German in many ways – straightforward and to the point,“ Frady says about himself. “Germans love leadership and I told the team that if they follow me, they will have great success.“
