WILKES-BARRE -- King's College baseball coach Jerry Greeley will return to the Baltimore Orioles minor league system when he reports to Bluefield, WV on June 13 to serve as a coach for the Bluefield Orioles of the Appalachian League.

It will mark his fourth straight year at Bluefield and his ninth overall season with the Orioles organization.

The 2008 season will be Greeley's 11th year as a professional coach in Major League Baseball's minor league system, as he also spent two years as a minor league coach with the Cincinnati Reds in 2002 and 2003. This is Greeley's second stint in the Baltimore organization as he spent 1997-98 in Bluefield and 1999-2001 with the Orioles' entry in the Gulf Coast League.

On June 13, he will report for mini-camp with the Orioles' 2008 draft choices in Bluefield WV to help prepare for the team's 68-game schedule that begins on June 17 with a three-game series at defending Appalachian League champion Elizabethton Twins in Elizabethton, TN.

"I am very excited because this is a great opportunity for me to continue to pick up things major league organizations are doing and incorporate them into our program at King's," Greeley said. "The Appalachian League also has a super schedule that will allow me to do the most important thing - to have my family with me for a good portion of the summer."

At King's, Greeley has led the Monarchs to a school-record for wins each of the last four seasons. His 2007 Monarch squad finished with a 28-12 record and tied for first-place in the Freedom Conference regular-season standings with a 13-5 league mark.
