ACM Names Field for Retired Coach

April 18th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Coach Steve Bazarnic dedicated his professional career to collegiate baseball. To honor his love of the game and extraordinary contributions to the college, Allegany College of Maryland will formally name its baseball field, the Steve Bazarnic Field. Bazarnic, who retired in 2019 after only 48 years of service, established, developed, and led ACM’s nationally recognized baseball program. ACM baseball won more than 1,400 games under his leadership. Our Trojans won nine district championships and played in the NJCAA World Series nine times. He produced 54 draft picks or free agent-signees including six players who spent time in the MLB – John Kruk, Stan Belinda, Steve Kline, Scott Sebol, Joe Beimel and Scott Patterson – and touched the lives of thousands of students as athletics director. Bazarnic was inducted into the Maryland Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 1991, National Junior College Athletic Association Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 1996, and the NJCAA Region XX Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2000. The dedication will take place Sunday, April 23 at 11:30am.
