Framingham State University Director of Athletics Tom Kelley announced the hiring of Framingham native Michael Gedman as the University’s head baseball coach in January of 2014.

Gedman has spent the last four seasons as an assistant coach at Division I Bryan University.  As part of the Bulldogs staff, Gedman was the hitting coach in addition to leading the recruiting efforts as well as handling administrative responsibilities within the baseball office.

Gedman helped lead the 2013 Bulldogs to a school record 45-18-1 mark which included the Northeast Conference (NEC) regular season and post season titles as well as the program’s first Division I NCAA Tournament victory, a 4-1 triumph over Arkansas.  The 2013 Bulldogs featured one of the region’s strongest offenses hitting .288 as a team with 365 runs scored.  Bryant’s offense led the NEC with 112 doubles and was third with 22 home runs.  The 2012 Bulldogs offense under Gedman’s guidance led the NEC with 32 home runs and established a new school record for runs in a single game with 22 against Quinnipiac and home runs in a game with four in a contest against Mount St. Mary’s.

Gedman played his collegiate ball at Le Moyne College before transferring to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where he earned a degree in history with a concentration in 20th century American history.  While at Le Moyne, Gedman saw time at first base and on the mound as the Dolphins appeared in the NCAA Regionals hosted by Texas A&M.

Gedman played his final three seasons of collegiate baseball at UMass Amherst. As a junior, Gedman led the Minutemen with a .345 average with nine doubles, two triples, five home runs and 25 RBI.  He recorded 13 multiple hit games and six multiple RBI games and ended the season by being named to the Atlantic 10 All-Tournament team.  Gedman led the Minuteman pitching staff in 2009 with a 2.42 ERA in 22.1 innings of work as he made 15 appearances, all in relief.  He recorded five saves with 20 strikeouts and opponents hit just .192 off the lefty.  As a senior, Gedman hit .314 with six doubles, a triple and a team leading eight home runs.  On the mound, Gedman tossed a complete game at St. Joseph’s and recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts.

Gedman, who played two seasons for the Worcester Tornadoes and a season for the Rockland Boulders of the CANAM league, has worked at the Rich Gedman Baseball Camp as well as serving as an instructor with New England Ruffnecks Baseball.
