Notre Dame, Ind. – Former Irish baseball standout Allen Greene has been named coordinator of compliance at the University of Notre Dame. Greene will be responsible for the certification of student-athlete eligibility and will handle all technology issues within the office, including maintaining the compliance database and website.
Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Greene spent two years at Shamrock Net Design, LLC in South Bend. He was hired as a strategic consultant and project manager with the company in September of 2001 and then was promoted to director of finance and internal operations a year later. He also was an assistant property manager for Common Ground Realty in Philadelphia, Pa., before his employment at Shamrock Net Design.
Greene graduated from the University with a bachelor’s degree in finance from the Mendoza College of Business in January of 2000.
Greene was a two-year starter in the outfield with the Notre Dame baseball program before signing with the New York Yankees organization after his junior season, as a ninth-round Major League Draft selection. He played in that organization’s minor leagues from June of 1998 until March of ’01. His three seasons with the Irish (1996-98) included a .329 career batting average, 15 home runs, 113 RBI, 44 doubles, 61 walks and 22 stolen bases in 150 games played.
A power threat from both sides of the plate, the three-year monogram winner and native of Seattle, Wash., hit six of his seven home runs in 1997 while batting left-handed before five of his seven home runs in ’98 came from the right side. His 20 doubles in 1997 still rank 10th on the Notre Dame single-season list while his other highlights that season included a five-hit game (tying the Irish record at the time) and two home runs in the same inning of another game.
Greene – whose teammates included current Major League pitchers Brad Lidge and Aaron Heilman – helped the high-powered Notre Dame offense set the team home run record in 1997 (66) and again in ’98 (73) while his .365 season batting average was a leading force on the ’97 squad that set the still-standing Irish record for team batting (.334). He was part of an Irish program that won 70 percent of its games from 1996-98 (126-54), with the ’96 team advancing to the NCAA Tournament while the ’97 squad won the BIG EAST Conference regular-season title.
