Coaches Week: Coach Mac brings fire and funniness to UConn baseball

The next time you attend a baseball game at J.O. Christian Field, you’ll be able to hear pitching coach Josh MacDonald long before you see him, even though he doesn’t realize it: Barking not-so-nice words at the umpire after every borderline call (and some that aren’t even close); defending his players’ every inch.

“It’s kind of embarrassing that you guys can hear me sometimes,” MacDonald joked. “There’s not a lot of nice words that come out if you’re able to hear me.”
