Mike Bocock stays busy in “retirement”
Legendary baseball coach Mike Bocock isn’t exactly taking the summer off from coaching. Bocock, who led the Waynesboro Generals to the 2013 Valley League championship, his eighth in 25 years as a VBL coach, stepped down from the job after hoisting the Jim Lineweaver Cup in August, but Bocock will be patrolling the dugout for a new team this year.
Mike Bocock, owner of the SVB-SA, has built successful programs in Virginia, at Stonewall Jackson High School, Harrisonburg High School and Chowan College, and in Florida at Citrus High School and Desoto County High School.
He is the VBL's all-time winningest coach, with over 600 career wins, 12 league pennants and six President’s Cup Championships, including his most recent in 2013.
Coach Bocock has had more than 180 of his players continue their playing careers into professional baseball, both at the minor and major league level, including his nephew Brian Bocock, a member of the 2005 Luray Wranglers who was drafted in the ninth round of the 2006 Amateur Draft by the San Francisco Giants.
The Shenandoah Valley Baseball - Softball Academy and its many coaches have a rich history successfully coaching young athletes throughout The Valley to achieve their goals in the sports of baseball and softball.
A few examples of the current major league ball players that have been enriched by coaches on our staff over the years include:
- Aubrey Huff
- Luke Scott
- Danny Murphy
- Jason Michaels
- Brian Bocock
The Shenandoah Valley Baseball - Softball Academy also works closely with many of our high school athletes to help them reach the NCAA level.
