Chuck Cox -  

Chuck has lived on Bainbridge Island for 26 years with his wife, Caroline. He raised two sons, Daniel and Michael (known as MJ), who both played Little League and Babe Ruth baseball. MJ additionally played for several traveling teams, Bainbridge High School, and the Wilkinson select team based in Lynnwood, Washington. Chuck’s lifelong love of baseball led to coaching boys locally for 17 years.

Chuck coached and managed teams for 13 years in Little League majors and intermediates. He coached for three years in the Babe Ruth League, and led the Babe Ruth All Stars to their third-place finish in the State Tournament in 2005. He also coached two Bainbridge Island select tournament teams, The Islanders and the Eagles. He has had the honor of coaching with the Mavericks Organization at the 14U, 13U, and 12U levels.

In Chuck’s words, “I’ve always believed that baseball is a great teacher of life skills, such as how to deal with both success and failure, how to be a team player, and how to have confidence when you’re in a slump. Most of all, baseball should teach you how to play with respect for your teammates, coaches, and opponents. Baseball is an opportunity to be a gentleman as well as an athlete.

“I coach using the Ted Williams philosophy of hitting, incorporating the coaching material and training from the American Baseball Coaches Association.”
