Matt Dryer is proud to announce that Tony Fuller has been named Diamond Pro's General Manager and Head of Team Operations. Fuller was also recently tabbed as the Head Varsity Coach at McQuaid Jesuit High School. Before moving into his current position at DP, Fuller spent five years as an assistant coach at Monroe Community College. MCC won four NJCAA Division II Region 3 titles with Fuller as an assistant.
The Penfield, N.Y. native served as the Tribunes' hitting coach and recruiting coordinator. During his tenure, Monroe's offense flourished including the 2013 squad which finished the season with a team batting average of .355 including six regular players hitting .350 or better. With Fuller manning the third base coach's box this past season, MCC finished top ten in the nation with 138 stolen bases while being thrown out on just 34 occasions (80 percent efficiency).
Monroe annually sent 7-10 players on to four-year schools while Fuller was with the program. He worked closely with two players (Danny Mendick and Jon Klein) who have since gone on to professional careers.
As a player, Fuller helped MCC to regional titles in 2005-06. He was an All-Region selection his sophomore season when MCC won a then-school record 40 games. Fuller went on to play to two years at the State University of New York at Buffalo before serving as a volunteer assistant with the Bulls program. He coached the Hornell Dodgers of the New York Collegiate Baseball League for two seasons and guided the Dodgers to the 2012 Western Division regular season title. Fuller has been a coaching at DP for three years and will oversee DP's growing number of teams.
