HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - It’s been official since Thursday morning that Marshall University hired Greg Beals as their new head baseball coach, and he had his first press conference a day later at Edwards Stadium.

He was introduced by Director of Athletics Chirstian Spears and talked about his vision for the program.

“We’ve got dreams of playing for championships,” Beals said. “We’ve got dreams of playing professionally, these guys do. We’ve got big dreams, and we’re going to chase those dreams and be in a great position on and off the field when the race is done.”

“He’s been on the big stage for a while,” Marshall pitcher Carter Lyles said. “He’s been at Ohio State in the Big 10. He’s playing some good schools. Whatever knowledge he learned there, he’s obviously going to bring here. We’re all open ears. We’re open-minded about it. We’re just excited.”
