Podcast EP 30: Chris Fletcher, William Woods University (NAIA) Assistant Coach

On This Episode:

We take a deep dive into NAIA baseball and are joined by William Woods University (Fulton, MO) coach Chris Fletcher. Fletcher is entering his 4th season as a coach with his alma mater, where he works with the hitters, infielders, leads recruiting efforts, and coaches 3rd base. No stranger to the NAIA program, Fletcher was also a standout infielder for the Owls during his playing career. Prior to returning to his alma mater, Fletcher’s 7 year college coaching career included a trip to the D2 World Series as a coach for Truman State University and coaching in the Northwoods League, among other stops.

We dive into new and familiar topics during this interview, which again delivers great information on college baseball and what it takes to play at the next level, directly from college baseball’s gatekeepers who know the game best. Click play to hear us debate whether the NAIA remains the Wild, Wild West of college baseball, discuss recruiting at a high level, and compare differences between the NAIA and NCAA. Most of all, you’ll get free insight into an under-explored level of college baseball and broaden your horizons about the opportunities out there that are available to you. As coach Fletcher says in this episode, “There is a college out there for every type of baseball player.”
