The Board of Directors hired Bulls alumnus Scott French to the position of Director of Baseball Operations in 2019. “Frenchy” has a deep baseball pedigree well-grounded in the state of Indiana. His relationship with the Indiana Bulls started in 1997 when he played for head coach Craig Moore on a Bulls team that won the NABFWorld Series. Scott proceeded to graduate from Shakamak High School in 1998, leading the state in hitting at .586 and was the MVP of the Indiana North/South All Star Series.
Scott’s baseball career continued at Ball State University where he was a four-year starter on teams that won two Mid-America Conference titles. A career .321 hitter and still the all-time leader in walks, Scott also played with 4 first round draft picks during his time Ball State.
Scott returned to Ball State as an assistant coach for 10 years in two different stints — 2004-2007 and in 2013-2018. Most recently, Scott was the recruiting coordinator for Ball State and was responsible for landing 2019 first round MLB draft pick and Bulls alumnus, pitcher Drey Jameson. Another recruiting coup for Scott while at Ball State was the signing and development of Zach Plesac, who debuted on the mound for the Cleveland Indians in 2019.
Scott has a passion for the game of baseball and for developing players of all ages. A tireless recruiter, the Board of Directors looks forward to the coaches and players that Scott will bring into the organization.
