Dobbs Named Assistant Baseball Coach at ABAC

August 3, 2017

Aaron Dobbs is the new assistant baseball coach at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, according to an announcement today by ABAC Coach Brandon Reeder.

“It’s good to have a coach of Aaron’s caliber come on board to help us continue to build momentum with our baseball program,” Reeder said. “He has some great relationships with coaches around the Southeast that will really benefit us from a recruiting standpoint.”

Dobbs will serve as the Golden Stallions’ hitting coach and work with the infielders.  He joins the ABAC staff after a four-year stint coaching travel baseball with 5 Star National in Warner Robins.  In his tenure with 5 Star National, formerly known as Chain Baseball, Dobbs coached nearly 100 players who went on to sign with NCAA Division I schools and nine Major League Baseball draft picks.

“I’m ready to get started,” Dobbs said. “Everyone that I’ve met so far at ABAC has been very nice and welcoming.  This place has everything to offer. I’m excited to be a Stallion and eager to work toward the goal of winning a conference championship.”

Dobbs finished his collegiate baseball playing career with two seasons at Division I Kennesaw State University after playing two years at Gordon State College. He earned First Team All-Atlantic Sun Conference in both seasons at KSU, his junior season as an outfielder, and his senior season as a third baseman. Dobbs was also named to the Atlantic Sun All-Tournament Team after leading the Owls to the A-Sun title game.

Dobbs set the Gordon State single season record for games played, walks, and triples during his sophomore season. He finished his career at Gordon with a .338 batting average and led the team in stolen bases with 49 in 2010.

“I’ve known Aaron for a long time,” Reeder said.  “He brings a lot to the table by way of knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm.  Our players will benefit greatly from having him around every day.”
