McCleney returns to lead Sharks in 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Ryan McCleney will return as the field manager for the Wilmington Sharks for the 2013 season.

According to a press release from the organization, this will be McCleney's third season with the team, second as the field manager.

In his first season at the helm, the Sharks finished with a 29-23 record, earning the #4 seed in the CPL Petitt Cup Playoffs. As an assistant coach with the team in 2011, the Sharks finished with a record of 32-20, earning the #7 seed.

"God has blessed me with a great opportunity here in Wilmington," said McCleney. "It's a great privilege to be back in Wilmington for another summer."

According to a press release, the Whiteville, NC native began coaching in baseball with Whiteville Post 137 legion team in 2009. McCleney assisted Coach Dean Sasser with infielders, outfielders, catchers, hitters, and base runners. McCleney also served as the third base coach and helped lead the team to a second place finish in Area 2.

The Wilmington Sharks are a proud member of the Coastal Plain League, entering their 17th season in the nation's hottest summer collegiate baseball league. Celebrating its 17th season in 2013, the CPL features 14 teams playing in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

The CPL gives college players the chance to refine their skills with the use of wooden bats.
