Andrew Reidt works as a paraprofessional for the New Haven School District. He is also the baseball coach for the 2019 season. He is in his first year as a NHHS staff member.
Andrew attended Pacific High School and graduated in 2010. Then, he went to Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma, where he played baseball. He went on to get his Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology from Central Methodist University after finishing his baseball career.
Before New Haven, Andrew was an assistant golf professional at The Legends Country Club. Also, his prior coaching experience includes two years of coaching summer ball for the Rawling Tigers.
When he was asked what his main goal is for this baseball season, he said, “[My] main goal for the season is to teach the kids how to be successful in baseball and also in life and improve every day on and off the field-- and win games, of course.”
He was also asked what his favorite thing about the team was so far.
“So far, my favorite thing about the team is their work ethic. In the practices that we have had so far, I am pleased with their work ethic,” he responded.
Christian Paterson, senior, stated about Coach Reidt, “If I had to describe coach, I’d say [he] is a go getter. He comes to practice and is ready to get after it. He expects us to get out of our comfort zone and do things right. He really wants us to work hard and have fun at the same time. I think we will have a successful season with lots of improvements.”
As you can see, Coach Reidt is ready to show New Haven how hard the team is working in preparation for this season. Good luck and let’s hit it out of the park, Shamrocks!
