The Oswego State Athletic Department announced today that Casey Price has been selected as the head softball coach at Oswego. Price recently completed her first season as a volunteer assistant pitching coach at Division II University of Massachusetts at Lowell where she assisted with scouting, recruiting, and pitching fundamentals.
Prior to joining the staff at UMass-Lowell, Price had been a volunteer assistant pitching coach at SUNY Plattsburgh from 1999-2010. Price worked individually with the pitching staff to develop fundamentals, create individualized workout programs, and call pitches during contests. While with the Cardinals, she served as the varsity softball coach at Baldwinsville Central, developing a winning tradition for the program. Price has also been an active clinician and private instructor in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Oklahoma since 1992.
Price competed collegiately at the University of Oklahoma from 1987-90 where she was recruited as a pitcher after being a three-time first team all-state high school player in Iowa before converting to an outfielder. She was named Freshman Female Athlete of the Year at Oklahoma, and later inducted into the Oklahoma Women’s Athletic Hall of Fame and the NCAA Hall of Fame. Price was also the first player to score a run at the Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.
Price received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from the University of Oklahoma in 1992 and her Master of Science degree in Education from SUNY Oswego in 2000. She has been a teacher in the Baldwinsville Central School District since 1999 and presently resides in Baldwinsville.
