Baseball Coaching Staff
Coach Info:
Position:

Veteran coach Mel Bacon completed his fifth season as a member of the University of Delaware baseball team's coaching staff during the 2014 season.

"The addition of Mel is as good as you can do in this business," said Delaware head coach Jim Sherman. "Through his experience in high school and in the college ranks, there is no one better. We are very, very fortunate to have him here. He's a great addition to the staff, and he will really help working with the catchers and as our first base coach."

During his four seasons at Delaware, the Blue Hens have posted winning seasons three times and made a spirited run to the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament championship game in 2012 before falling in the title game.

Prior to arrving at Delaware, Bacon served on the staff at Delaware's CAA rival Towson University for seven years. With the Tigers, he helped the program make the transition over to the CAA in 2002. Eventually, in 2005, Towson won 34 games, the second-most in program history, and finished second during the CAA Tournament.

Prior to joining the college ranks, Bacon had a distinguished career as a baseball coach and health and physical education teacher at North East High School in Cecil County, Md. During that time, he served as the head coach of the baseball team for 28 years where he taught the game to hundreds of young players, including current UD colleague Dan Hammer.

Eventually, Bacon led the Indians to seven state championship appearances, including four titles. For his work at North East, he was inducted into the Maryland State Association of Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 1998.

Before serving as a coach, Bacon enjoyed an outstanding playing career at Frostburg State from 1969-72. During his four seasons, he earned first-team all-district honors on three occasions, while he garnered All-American nods as a sophomore and senior. A career .273 hitter, he was also a three-time team captain.

During his junior campaign, he even earned a special note in the June 7, 1971 edition of Sports Illustrated after catching an attempted base stealer on a trick play. For all of his accomplishments, he was eventually inducted into the Frostburg State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1979.

Bacon resides in Cecil County, Md. and has two children, Scott and Ashley. Scott works at SunTrust Bank in North Carolina, while Ashley is the head field hockey coach at South Carroll High School.
