Andy Chrismer

Andy Chrismer was a 4 year starter at Bridgewater, switching between outfield and catching. He was an all Old Dominion Athletic Conference catcher in his 2007, 2008, and 2009 seasons, and then his senior year he was an all ODAC outfielder for the Eagles.

 

In addition to his all-conference accolades, he earned ODAC rookie of the year, VA-SID Rookie of the Year, and All-South Region team his freshman season. His sophomore season, he earned All-South Region accolades, as well as earning a spot on the South Region Rawlings Gold Glove team.

 

​After graduating from Bridgewater college, Andy coached at East Rockingham High School, as the co-head coach of the Junior Varsity program. He lead them to a 16-5 season, the best record in their conference. The following year, he joined up with the Gettysburg College Bullets Baseball program, working with their catchers and hitters. In one season, he helped turn their team batting average from a .270 average, to a .330 clip. This also lead to a record-breaking season for the Bullets, where they set a new record for wins in that season. The following season, he moved to Harrisonburg, VA, and was an assistant coach at Eastern Mennonite University. While at EMU, he helped coach the catchers, outfielders, and hitters, helping them to surpass 11 wins in a season, the most since 2002 when professional catcher, Erik Kratz, was a part of the team.

 

Coach Chrismer brings his knowledge, experience, and his love of the game of baseball to the Pinnacle Baseball Academy, where he's been instructing and coaching for four years now.
