Special to the Bulletin

The Martinsville Mustangs and NEXT PLAN Athletics announced this week the hiring of Kregg Snook as head coach for the 2023 season.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Martinsville,” Snook said in a team statement. “I can’t think of a better group of people to be around over the summer than the people involved in this organization.”

Snook, a native of Houston, is currently in his second year as head coach at Clarendon College in NJCAA Region 5. He returns to Martinsville after spending two summers with the Mustangs as an assistant and head coach.

In 2018, as the Mustangs’ pitching coach, Snook helped guide starting pitcher Addison Domingo to a 1.59 ERA and first-team All-CPL selection. He also guided right-hander Lowell Schipper to second-team All-CPL honors.

In 2019, Snook served as the head coach at Martinsville. He was able to produce three CPL All-Stars, as well as a member of the CPL Select team. The summer of 2019 also saw four pitchers from the 2018 team sign professional contracts: Greg Leban (Atlanta Braves), Gavin Weyman (Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers), Charlie Hasty (Sioux Falls Canaries) and Ryan Evans (Lancaster Barnstormers). The 2019 Mustang Davis Palermo was also selected in the 8th round of the 2022 MLB Draft.

As a player, Snook played a key role out of the bullpen for the University of Arkansas at Monticello, setting a school record with 30 appearances in 2014. Prior to UAM, he attended Abilene Christian University, as well as Clarendon College.

Martinsville will enter its 19th season in the CPL in May 2023. The team schedule will be revealed at a later date.
