The Duluth Huskies are still making moves toward playing baseball and today signed a hitting coach.

The Duluth Huskies website says Jeffrey Chapuran is a southerner, so it might be a little bit of a change. Chapuran comes to the Duluth Huskies by way of the Pilots of LSU-Shreveport. Another story about the reputation of the Northwoods League and the strength of the Duluth Huskies baseball team.

Jeff has been successful his whole career and says it's because he forms relationships with the players and gains their trust while helping them to hit better. He says when you can talk one on the one you can relax the players and get to the core of the problem to make them successful. The Huskies website also said he has worked with infielders, so he should be a great addition to the team.
