Mercer’s New Baseball Coach Already at Work
A 2003 graduate of Rutgers University, Wolski played second base for the Scarlet Knights. “I was fortunate to play all four years. Rutgers has tons of talent. Freshmen and sophomores don’t always get a chance to play as much as they would like.”
And that’s where a community college can make a big difference. “I saw how it worked for pitcher Shaun Parker,” Wolski said. Parker was a star pitcher at Mercer for two seasons, graduating in 2002 and continuing his education at Rutgers, where he played with Wolski. Parker is now playing minor league ball for the New York Yankees.
With experience as an assistant coach at Steinert and at Rider University, Wolski believes he is ready to fill the head coach position. “I’m excited. I’m the one who will take the credit – and the blame. I’ve got deep roots in Mercer County. I want to see Mercer County College succeed.”
A stand-out player for Steinert High School, Wolski has been in the local spotlight as far back as 1992 when he played a starring role for Nottingham at the Little League World Series. He also played for former MCCC baseball coach Rich Freeman in the summer American Legion League.
He is currently studying for his masters degree at Thomas Edison State College. In addition to coaching, Wolski intends to teach after graduation.
