Director of Athletics Matt Mitchell announced Zach Bishop as the eighth coach for the Westminster baseball program since 1989.
Bishop comes to the Blue Jays after two years as an assistant at Webster University. He worked with the hitters and catchers and took on many of the team's recruiting responsibilities. This season, Webster was a participant in the NCAA Division III College World Series after taking first place in the SLIAC Tournament.
In his first season with the Gorloks, the team recorded a school record 38 wins and recorded a team average of .321.
Prior to coaching at Webster, Bishop was the captain of the Gorloks baseball team. He spent his first two seasons playing at John Wood Community College where he primarily was the catcher while also spending time at first base. He was a team captain and earned first team All-MWAC in his sophomore season.
Bishop graduated with his associate's degree in 2015, and finished his bachelor's in criminology at Webster in 2017. He is from Marshall, Mo., where he attended Marshall High School.
