Thomas College Baseball Program


Head Baseball Coach
Ray Bernier

“Our baseball program’s philosophy is based on how ‘the majority of our players think, work, and act a majority of the time.’ By creating honest relationships with each other, we develop a clear understanding of how everyone ‘thinks’ about their goals, plans, and role.”
