Coach John Mayotte Earns Victory #200 With Golden Eagles

Glens Falls, NY – As Glens Falls Golden Eagles Coach John Mayotte walked into the stadium at East Field Thursday evening, the seasoned skipper held 199 wins in the green, white, and gold Glens Falls uniform. Walking off the field after the sun set that same evening (and drenched from a celebratory water cooler soak); Coach Mayotte had reached a league milestone 200th win following a 10-0 win over the visiting Watertown Wizards.

The Golden Eagles earned Mayotte his 200th victory by outslugging the Wizards with ten runs on ten hits as PGCBL All Star selection Kyle Ruchim (Northwestern) hit two line drive homeruns to lead the team to victory. Starting pitcher Max MacNabb (San Diego) went five scoreless innings and struck out eight Wizard batters to subdue the Watertown bats which had scored ten runs the night before leading to the combined shutout for Glens Falls pitchers.

As newly acquired pitcher Jordan Keysor (Skidmore) closed out the ninth with a fly to right, the Golden Eagles players jubilantly took to the field cheering on their manager who was quickly mobbed by the team. With his attention turned towards his players, he was unexpectedly doused with a cooler full of ice water in the traditional celebration to cap what was a special evening.

Before his time with the Golden Eagles, Coach Mayotte spent 13 years at Eckerd College (DII), 12 years at Troy State (DI for 10 years), and five years with the Chatham A’s of the Cape Cod Baseball League. Ranking 18th in the NCAA DII record book with 821 DII victories, Coach Mayotte, a Castleton State College alumnus, has had success throughout his career at all levels including his time with Glens Falls.

Over his eight season career with the Golden Eagles, Coach Mayotte has amassed 200 wins at an impressive .625 winning percentage. (200 wins, 120 losses). Under his guidance, Glens Falls has won the division three times while reaching the playoffs in five of the past seven seasons including a playoff berth last summer.

This season, Coach Mayotte’s Golden Eagles (17-11) have been in sole possession of the Eastern Division of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League for the majority of the summer while being ranked nationally for the first month plus of the season by Perfect Game USA and ranking as high as number 12. Benefiting from Coach Mayotte’s tutelage and contributing to the team’s success, eight Glens Falls ballplayers were recently named to the league All Star roster.

With just under three weeks remaining in the PGCBL season, the Golden Eagles are well-positioned to make the playoffs and will have a chance to win the team’s first ever league championship. With a 200 win field manager in Coach Mayotte, the team’s future is looking quite bright as it did tonight in Glens Falls’ 10-0 victory.
