ULM Hawkeye

Former MLB All-star and ULM standout, Been Sheets has been brought aboard the Warhawk baseball coaching staff as a volunteer assistant coach for the 2014 season.

He has played in the major leagues as recently as last season when he pitched in nine games for the Atlanta Braves.

Sheets’ previous MLB time was spent in Oakland (one season) and in Milwaukee (eight seasons). He retired with 94 career wins and 1,325 strikeouts.

While at ULM, Sheets set records for winning percentage (.933) and wins in a season (14). He was also a two-time All-Southland-Conference selection. An olympic gold medal is also on his resume from the 2000 summer games.

He will be one of several new coaches brought onto the program due to offseason exits. Head Coach Jeff Schexnaider is in the process of revamping his staff for the upcoming season.
