Georgetown College baseball's newest assistant Micah Graves has been helping develop baseball players for the past several years on the collegiate level. He helped Tarleton State University to its first Lone Star Conference Championship as an infield coach during the 2012-13 season. He then went to Murray State College in Oklahoma as an infield, hitting and base-running coach.
He spent this past summer as a head coach in the Metro Scout League-Collegiate League.
"I really enjoy the game of baseball, but more importantly helping that young player really reach his goals and round into a great player on the next level," Graves said.

The season might be over, but the accolades continue to pour in for Georgetown College baseball. With the 2014 Avista World Series officially wrapping up Friday, the NAIA announced Monday morning the All-Americans.
Georgetown has two representatives – Martin Lemus and Tyler Arthur.
"It's an honor and a tribute to the respect this program is garnering to have two players on the All-American list," GC coach Micah Baumfeld said.
For the first time since 1987, Georgetown had a player on the first team list – Lemus. The senior from Lawndale, Calif., finished his career with a school season-record setting 13 homeruns, including a two-run shot at the world series.
Lewiston, Idaho – Emotional highs and lows can be very difficult for athletes. Some of that might have taken a toll on the No. 5 Tigers against Southern Polytechnic State University.
Georgetown College baseball dug another hole, erased the deficit, but did not have enough left in the tank to finish the comeback and stay alive at the 2014 Avista NAIA World Series.
"It has been a long and tough couple of weeks," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "I'm proud of my guys for the way they fought to get us here and fought in each of these games we had here. As a coach there is nothing more I can ask of them. We've built on each success we've had since winning our first MSC Tournament title three years ago and I don't expect anything less.
"These seniors have made what we did in 2012 a tradition and now it is up to these underclassmen to carry that banner and to fight to get back here next year. Our expectations are high."
Lewiston, Idaho – Georgetown College baseball has shown a lot of resiliency this postseason. The No. 5 Tigers (49-10) have rallied twice out of consolation brackets to advance to and force the if-necessary championship game.
They will need to do so again in the 2014 Avista NAIA World Series following a 5-4 setback to defending national champion Faulkner University (50-14) Friday.
Georgetown plays Southern Polytechnic Institution noon EST Saturday.
The Eagles used a single and an errant throw to be on second with one out in the ninth. This set up Luis Sanchez walk-off single to end the game.
