2018 All-Sentinel Baseball Coach of the Year: Mike Acey
Mike Acey, Camp Hill
It's cliché to pick the coach whose team went the farthest in the playoffs, but Acey did a deserving job this year. The second-year skipper dealt with unexpected roster departures, including stud pitcher Wyatt Beddow as an offseason transfer, and had to guide a unit through the always tough Mid-Penn Capital that had plenty of question marks entering the year. Yet he got the Goodyears, Quinn Buffingtons and Jack Thompsons of the roster to unite at the right time, tearing through the District 3 and PIAA playoffs to make the team's fifth PIAA championship game. Cumberland Valley's Levi Mumma and Boiling Springs' Paul VonStein also had impressive seasons.
