    Head Coach Mike Bocock

    Mike Bocock grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in the town of Dayton. He attended Turner Ashby High School (TA) and played baseball for the legendary coach, Ray Lynn Heatwole. While at TA, Mike won 2 state championships.
    After high school, Mike attended August Military Academy (AMA) and played for the post graduate football program. He went on to Chowan College and played quarterback for the football team. He was named a junior college All-American as a freshman. He then came home to the valley and enrolled at Bridgewater College where he participated on the football and baseball team. Mike was a member of the Eagles team that won the very first Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship in baseball.
    After college graduation, Mike started his teaching and coaching career at Stonewall Jackson (now Moutain View) High School. Under the tutelage of Max Hutton, Mike started the baseball program that won more than 100 games, multiple district titles, and continues to this day.
    Mike then moved to Florida and kept winning titles. His FL high school baseball win percentage was over .650. He parlayed that success into returning to one of his alma maters, Chowan, and won titles and racked up a .750 winning percentage.
    From his time at Stonewall Jackson, through Florida, and currently, Mike has been involved with the Valley Baseball League (a college summer league). His VBL successes have spread through 5 different franchises with 7 league championships and 14 pennants. He was named VBL Coach of the Year in 2005, 2014, & 2022. He was also inducted with the inaugural class into the VBL Hall of Fame in 2016. To date, Mike has accrued more than 700 VBL victories. The VBL experience has allowed Mike to grow relationships with college players, college coaches, and professional baseball scouts and coaches. Many of his best players have gone on to successful professional baseball careers.
    Mike’s baseball legacy is continued by his son, Tyler, who coaches baseball at Sarasota Christian Academy (FL) and his stepson, Andrew, who coached at Turner Ashby High School where he helped them win the 2017 VA State Championship. He is the loving husband to Martha and a very proud grandfather of 5.
    Pitching Coach Rick Croushore

    Rick Croushore grew up in Alexandria, VA and attended Mount Vernon High School. After high school, he left the state for Kansas and studied and played baseball at Hutchinson Community College. As a highly recruited pitcher, Rick chose to come to the Valley and finish his college career at James Madison University.
    The St. Louis Cardinals signed Rick in 1993 after finishing at JMU. He went on to 11 years in professional baseball with 8 different organizations. That time included 2+ years of Major League service with the St. Louis Cardinals, Colorado Rockies, Boston Red Sox, and New York Mets.
    Knowing he wanted to coach baseball after retiring from his playing career, Rick began coaching at Benton High School (AR) while still playing. He spent 7 years with Benton and saw 27 players go on to college and/or professional baseball careers.
    After retirement, Rick started coaching youth and high school showcase ball. Croushore spent over 20 years coaching in Arkansas and became the “go to” pitching coach in the state. His years as an AR coach were highlighted by his EM Majors winning the USSSA Elite World Series and being named National Champions in 2013. Multiple Arkansas players credit Rick for their successes at college, minor league, and major league baseball.
    In 2019, Rick decided to come back home to Virginia and accepted the job as Pitching Coach and Recruiting Coordinator at Shenandoah University in Winchester. During his 3 years at SU, they stayed in the national Top 25 and won an ODAC title in 2022.
    Rick is a very proud father of Jake and Kaylee and is an avid fisherman and golfer
