BEATRICE - The Orangemen have selected their next baseball coach.

Beatrice alum Zach Decker will lead the Orangemen this coming season. Decker was a tri-athlete at Beatrice participating in baseball, basketball, and football. In addition, he's also coached all three of those sports as well. Decker was part of Beatrice's 2021 state title year in both baseball and basketball.

In a release from Beatrice Public Schools, Athletic Director Gus Brown noted Decker will bring "great experience, work ethic, and energy to the program." Brown also expressed that Decker has a great vision of how he wants to develop the program and the excitement surrounding his new leadership. 

Decker comes into about the best situation possible with Husker commit Tucker Timmerman still on the roster, among other stand outs such as Jaxson Blackburn and Deegan Nelson. T

Beatrice won the Class-B state championship in 2021 and reached the state semi's in 2022. 

A feature interview with Zach Decker can be heard on KWBE at 12:45 on Thursday afternoon.
