After eight seasons in charge of the East Hall baseball program, Wesley Crow resigned his position Monday.
“Multiple factors went into this decision,” Crow said. “It was the best decision for me at this time to step away from coaching due to the amount of time I had to spend away from home.”
Crow is the father of two young boys, ages four and two, and the desire to spend more time with them was the primary factor in his decision to resign as coach of the Vikings’ baseball team.
“It starts to weigh on you emotionally,” Crow said. “Coming home after a doubleheader and not seeing your kids. They’re super supportive and they come out whenever they can but, you start to think, if I want to coach their teams, will I have time to do that?”
Connor, Crow’s oldest child, is set to start tee-ball soon, and Crow says both of his boys are absolute sports nuts.
“It was a hard decision,” Crow said. “But the (East Hall) program is in a good position.”
Crow met with his team on Monday and informed his players of his decision. Crow will retain his position as teacher at East Hall, but will refrain from any coaching duties for the foreseeable future.
