Conor Kortmann enters his fourth season as an assistant baseball coach at Babson College in 2017 after being hired in July 2014 following a sixth-month stint working with the Boston Red Sox.
Over his first three years as an assistant, the Beavers have won 68 games and advanced to the the NEWMAC Tournament championship series twice. After winning 24 games in 2016, the Green and White captured the league's regular season and tournament titles in 2017, and won a school-record 29 games and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Harwich Regional title game.
Kortmann, who served as team captain as a senior, started 108 of 116 games while posting a .314 career batting average with 27 extra-base hits, 61 runs scored and 67 runs batted in for the Green and White. He joined the Boston Red Sox organization in March as a video operations and player development intern, working with its Eastern League Double-A affiliate. During his time in Portland, which finished 85-52 and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2008, Kortmann worked with coaches, players and front office staff with a focus on video and advanced statistics.
Prior to joining the Red Sox organization, Kortmann worked as an intern with the NY/NJ Comets of the National Pro Fastpitch softball league and with the Philadelphia Phillies' Single-A affiliate, the Lakewood BlueClaws of the South Atlantic League.
