Mark Krueger named next Belton HS baseball coach

BELTON, TX – Belton ISD announced today that athletic director Bob Shipley is recommending Mark Krueger as Belton High School’s next head baseball coach. Superintendent Susan Kincannon will present the recommendation to the school board at their next meeting on July 18.

Krueger is currently an assistant baseball coach at Belton High School, a position that he has held for 22 years. He was an assistant coach for the Tigers’ 1994 team, which won the Class 4A state title, and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor’s 1992 team, which was the runner-up at the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics World Series. Krueger holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and a master’s degree from Tarleton State University.

“Coach Krueger has had a long and successful career as an assistant coach for our baseball program,” said Shipley. “Having been an assistant coach for Belton’s state championship baseball team, he understands what it takes for a team to put it all together and play for a state championship.

“The more people I talked to about Mark, the more I felt that he was the right person for the job at this place and time. He knows these kids, this community and the lofty expectations that go along with this job.

“I think he has shown his loyalty to this sport and program and is very deserving of this opportunity. Very rarely does someone stay in one place for 22 years. He’s had opportunities to take head coaching jobs in the past but has chosen to stay here and continue to be a part of the wonderful legacy of Belton Tiger Baseball.”

Kincannon said, “Mark has demonstrated an incredible commitment to this program and proven his ability to help student athletes reach their full potential. I look forward to recommending him to the school board and to seeing where he takes this team.”
