Former Bridgewater baseball standout Scott Hearn is beginning his ninth year as an assistant coach with the Eagles baseball programs.
Aside from his coaching duties, Hearn also serves as the College's NCAA Compliance Coordinator.
Hearn helped lead the Eagles to the 2014 ODAC title and a trip to the NCAA regional tournament where the Eagles lost in the championship game to Emory University.
Hearn was an assistant with the Eagles in 2010 when the team won the ODAC title. He has been an assistant with three teams (2010, 2013, 2014) that advanced to the NCAA tournament.
Hearn played four seasons with the Eagles and was an All-ODAC first-team selection three times and an All-ODAC second-team selection as a senior. He earned All-Region honors all four years and was a three-time VaSID All-State honoree.
He finished his playing career as the College's all-time leader in hits (235), runs batted in (165), doubles (54), extra base hits (87), and total bases (376).
Following his playing career, Hearn coached one year at Old Dominion University.
Hearn, a 2003 Bridgewater graduate, received his Master's degree in sport management from Liberty University.
Derrik Walling begins his second season as an assistant coach on the Bridgewater College baseball staff.
Walling played baseball four years while a student-athlete at Bridgewater. He had 148 career hits in 152 games and finished his four seasons with a .286 batting average. Walling was a member of the record-setting 2014 Eagles team that established a program record for wins in a season with a 36-14 mark. That team advanced to the finals of the NCAA Division III South Region where the Eagles lost to Emory in the title game.
Walling has spent the past two summers as an assistant coach in the Valley Baseball League, working one summer with the Waynesboro Generals and one summer with Harrisonburg Turks.
