MOREHEAD – PJ McIntee, who helped guide Southeastern (Iowa) Community College to the National Junior College Athletic Association World Series in 2014, has joined the Morehead State University baseball staff as the volunteer assistant.
A Randolph, Minn., native, McIntee helped SCC lead the nation in hits in 2014 and rank second nationally in doubles. The program won a school-record 45 games and finished fifth in the nation.
“I’m very excited to add PJ to our staff,” Head Coach Mike McGuire said. “He has been an instrumental part of a very good junior college program and has ties to the Midwest, which should be a big asset.”
McIntee’s responsibilities at MSU will include catchers, base running, assisting with hitters, on-campus recruiting and running camps and showcases.
McIntee, who served as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at SCC from 2012-14, mentored 20 all-region players and two All-Americans. SCC boasted the league’s Defensive Player of the Year all three seasons.
He served as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Bemidji State (Minn.), in 2010 and 2011. McIntee helped develop five All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference players, two all-region honorees and one All-American.
He has been active in collegiate summer leagues, serving as assistant coach for the Wilmar (Minn.) Stingers in 2013 and 2014. He also spent time with the Boise Summer League in 2009 and 2010.
“I think PJ will really compliment the rest of our coaching staff,” McGuire said. “With Adam Brown, Graham Johnson and now PJ, I’m very fortunate to have such a good staff here at MSU.”
McIntee lettered four seasons for BSU, batting a career-best .320 as a sophomore in 2008.
McIntee earned his bachelor’s degree in sport management from Bemidji State in 2009 and received his master’s degree in sport studies from BSU in 2014.
Morehead State finished with a school-record 16 Ohio Valley Conference victories in 2014 and recorded a 29-28 overall record.
