Suby Hired As New A's Manager

MARSHALL, Minn. The Marshall Baseball Association (MBA) has completed their search for a new manager, naming former longtime A's second baseman Matt Suby to the position.

Suby played 9 seasons with the A's from 2002-08 and 2010-11. He was a member of 4 state tournament teams (2003, 07, 08, 10).

The former Marshall Tiger played his college ball for the Augustana Vikings.

After retiring as a player after the 2011 season, Suby joined the MBA as a board member. He has also spent many summers coaching local youth baseball programs.

"I'm very confident that Matt will continue the proud tradition of A's baseball that has been established for the past 40 years," stated MBA President Kelly Loft. "Sean has done a great job the last seven years and Matt will keep the momentum going forward."

Culhane Retires

MARSHALL, Minn. The 2014 A's will have a very different look than recent memory, as longtime player and manager Sean Culhane retired as of January 3, 2014. Culhane spent 7 seasons as a player (2000-06) and then took over managerial duties in 2007.

As a player, Culhane was part of 3 state tournament teams (2000, 2001, 2003). After being named manager in 2007, Culhane led the team to an impressive 4 consecutive state tournament berths from 2007-10.

"I am extremely grateful for the wonderful opportunity/chance the board took on a 25 year old with only VFW coaching experience" Culhane said. "After 14 years of amateur ball, its time to see what an As game is like from the other side of the fence!"
