Assistant Coach Grant Wallace
Grant Wallace steps into the Kenyon dugout for his first season in 2012 to oversee the Lords' pitching staff and assist with game day operations. Wallace joined the Kenyon coaching staff after finishing his masters of education degree at Bowling Green State University, where he worked closely with varsity teams and also served as an advisor to club sports teams, including baseball.
As a player, Wallace got his start at Woodland High School in California under the tutelage of head coach Rob Rinaldi and pitching coach Aaron Cames, a 1995 draft pick of the Florida Marlins. The team enjoyed great success during Wallace's career and reached the Northern Section finals in his senior year. He capped off his high school days by compiling a 0.00 ERA in 13 relief innings for Yolo Post 77 American Legion, which finished third in the Northwest Region with a 42-10 record.
Wallace spent a redshirt season at Yuba College in Marysville, California, where he was coached by Tim Gloyd, a 1979 Los Angeles Dodgers draftee. He then went on to pitch at Solano Community College in Fairfield, California before earning his bachelor's degree in business administration from Sacramento State.
