The German Baseball and Softball Federation (DBV) has officially started the application process for hiring a new full-time senior national team head coach. Interested coaches are asked to send their resumes immediately to Dirk Fries, technical director of the DBV. For more information, download the attached PDF file.
The German national team was led by Greg Frady from 2004 to 2014, which included promotion to the A-Pool, a bronze medal at the 2010 European Championship, three participations at Baseball World Cups, participation at the Final Olympic Qualifying Tournament and the 2012 World Baseball Classic Qualifier.
The DBV is currently in a reformation process. A new executive board was elected last November, new managing and technical directors were hired this spring and offices relocated from Mainz to Frankfurt nearby the German Olympic Sports Federation. The DBV also is in the process of restructuring its national team program, aiming to qualify for the Premier 12, Olympic Games and the World Baseball Classic in the future. The senior national team finished in 5th place at last year’s European Championship.
