Michigan State baseball is making some moves this offseason. The baseball program announced that there are bringing in a former World Series champion to join the coaching staff per a release from the school.

Adam Eaton, who won a World Series with the Washington Nationals in 2019, is heading to East Lansing. The outfielder has also spent time with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox, and Los Angeles Angels organizations. Eaton is excited be joining Michigan State, as he has always been a big fan.

I’ve always been a big fan of Michigan State. My brother-in-law Zach played hockey there just a short time ago and I’ve always kind of gravitated towards the Spartans. I’ve always enjoyed my time on campus and also enjoyed the intensity and the overall feeling of campus towards the athletic department and student-athletes. It seems that the whole university really backs them and does a terrific job of putting all of the Spartan teams in a good position to be successful, and baseball is no different.

Eaton’s role with the team will be the Director of Player Development, where he will give insight on playing in the outfield, as well as base running, and hitting. He can’t wait to start with MSU baseball coach Jake Boss’ staff.

I’m excited to enter that realm of being a coach. Jake Boss has always been a friend to me ever since he recruited me when he was at Eastern Michigan, when I was playing high school baseball in Springfield, Ohio. Going through the recruiting process with Jake was nothing but a pleasure. To come full circle and then be hired by him now, to do a job, and work with him, is very exciting.
