About Us

Grove City College Baseball

Welcome to the Grove City College Baseball Prospect Camp. We are a Division 3 academic school located an hour north of Pittsburgh and play in the Presidents Athletic Conference. This is our biggest recruiting event as 50% of our current roster has attended our prospect camp. This camp consists of a prostyle workout, lunch, scrimmage, and optional tour. 

Our Coaches

MATT ROVER

Head Coach

KYLE SASALA

Associate Head Coach

Head Coach Matt Royer

 

The College appointed Royer as head coach in July 2016 after he coached the Wolverines on an interim basis in 2016.

 

Royer took over the Wolverine baseball program in January 2016 and led the squad to a 27-17 overall record this spring, including a 15-9 mark in Presidents’ Athletic Conference play. Grove City’s 27 victories established a program record, and the Wolverines capped the season by winning the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Southwest title May 20 at Penn State Behrend.

 

Grove City surpassed that win total in 2019 as the Wolverines finished 28-16 overall. The Wolverines went 16-7 in conference play, good for second place in the league. Grove City then earned ECAC Division III Tournament runner-up honors following the season.

 

Royer’s collegiate coaching career began in 1989 at Harper (Ill.) College. In 1990, he took over as head baseball coach at Division III Wheaton (Ill.) College and coached the team for three seasons. Royer then built Kutztown (Pa.) University into an NCAA Division II powerhouse in 10 years as coach from 1993 to 2002. He led the Bears to the 2001 and 2002 Division II World Series after winning the North Atlantic Region crown in each season.

 

He earned North Atlantic Coach of the Year honors in 2001 and 2002 as well as four Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division Coach of the Year awards. Kutztown captured three division titles and two PSAC championships during Royer’s tenure and inducted him its Hall of Fame in 2010.

 

From 2003 to 2007, Royer worked as head coach at his alma mater, Liberty University. The Flames earned runner-up honors in the Big South Conference three times during his five-year tenure. Royer led Liberty to three 30-win seasons, including a program-best 39 victories in 2006. Eight of his players at Liberty were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

 

Royer owns a 545-423 record as a head coach at four-year colleges.

 

He earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education at Liberty and then added his master’s in physical education at The University of Arizona in 1982.

 

Associate Head Coach Kyle Sasala

 

Kyle Sasala is entering his 9th year as an assistant baseball coach and his 5th year as the baseball recruiting coordinator at Grove City. He has helped Grove City return to the Presidents’ Athletic Conference’s elite during his tenure.

 

In 2019, Sasala assisted head coach Matt Royer in leading the Wolverines to a program-record 28 victories. Sasala served as the team’s interim head coach during the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III Championship Tournament, guiding Grove City to a runner-up finish.

 

The 2016 Wolverines went 27-17 overall and won the ECAC D-III Southwest title.

 

Sasala joined the Wolverines following a successful collegiate playing career at fellow conference member Waynesburg, where he was a two-time All-PAC Second Team selection at shortstop after playing for two years at NCAA Division II Seton Hill.

 

He earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Waynesburg 2013 and added his master’s in counseling from WU in 2015. He lives in Grove City with wife Shannon and their two infant children. 

Our Facilities

R. Jack Behringer Field has served as the home of Grove City College baseball since it was reinstituted as a varsity sport in 1959.

 

Dedicated in 2009 for the long-time athletic director and coach, the facility has received renovations in recent years, including the addition of covered dugouts and a new full-featured scoreboard.

 

Comprised completely of natural surfaces, the field possesses an asymmetrical layout, measuring 320 down the left-field line, 400 to straight-away center field, and 300 down the right-field line.
