Baseball Volunteer Assistant Coach
Former Notre Dame lefthanded pitcher Wally Widelski is in his second season as the volunteer assistant coach for the Notre Dame baseball program.
Widelski, 26, will continue to assist Notre Dame pitching coach Brian O[apos]Connor with training and instruction of the Irish pitching staff, in addition to working with the team[apos]s first basemen. Widelski also helps coordinate Notre Dame[apos]s growing offering of baseball camps.
Widelski was a four-year member of the Notre Dame baseball program from 1994-97, helping the Irish compile nearly a .700 winning percentage (171-74) during that span, plus three regular-season conference titles and two trips to the NCAAs. The crafty lefthander shouldered an expanded role as a senior in 1997 and responded by winning all three of his decisions, with a 5.89 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 36.2 innings pitched.
