Fenisey announced as Baseball head coach
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College Director of Athletics Kim Strable named Chris Fenisey as the new head baseball coach.
“His enthusiasm is contagious and that contributes to a strong work ethic and getting the most out of one’s ability,” Strable said. “He is a player’s coach and we see great days ahead for our baseball program.”
Fenisey is not new to the Greensboro College campus, as he served as the baseball team’s hitting coach from 2016 through 2017.
“I am humbled at the opportunity to come back and lead this program,” Fenisey said. “I am really excited to get started.”
Fenisey recently served as a volunteer assistant and camp coordinator at High Point University. During his time there, Fenisey was responsible with helping the outfielder and corner infielders on the defensive side while being a first base coach and assisting the development of the offense.
“It was good to see the game at a different level from a different perspective,” Fenisey commented. “You pick up on things along the way and I learned a lot of good things to bring here and implement them with the Pride.”
Previously at Greensboro, Fenisey was tasked with the defensive strategy for the team’s outfielders and first basemen and served as the first base coach. In addition, he headed the Pride’s player development program and was the team’s travel coordinator, recruiting coordinator, and camp coordinator.
A native of Tampa, Fla., Fenisey spent six seasons at his alma mater, Saint Leo University in Saint Leo, Fla. His playing career was cut short due to injury in 2010, but he joined the staff as a student assistant and aided the pitching staff for four seasons. Upon his graduation in 2013, Fenisey was promoted to a graduate assistant coach where he oversaw the development of the team’s outfielders.
“Greensboro has always felt like home for me since my first time here in 2016,” Fenisey added. “I always felt like we were doing something special and to come back to such a special place is an opportunity I could not pass up.”
Strable added “Coach Fenisey is a real ambassador for our greater community and simply relishes the idea of recruiting and introducing Greensboro as a destination city for college athletes. His fondness for Greensboro College is palpable so we see Chris as a real asset on and off the playing field.”
