Coaching Staff

Russ Burroughs – Head Coach

Russ Burroughs is entering his first season as the Head Coach of the Edenton Steamers. He previously served as the Pitching Coach for the Teal and Black during the 2017 season. During the 2017 campaign, Burroughs’ pitching staff was ranked 3rd in fewest hits allowed and 3rd in strikeouts. He directed the eventual CPL saves leader, Carmen Giampetruzzi, who had 9 saves on the year. He also helped guide Carlos Pimentel toward signing a free agent contract with the Houston Astros.

Burroughs played four seasons of professional baseball. He spent three years in Independent Baseball, as well as one year in International Baseball. During his time in professional baseball, Burroughs was a spot starter his rookie year and then was mainly used in the back-end of the bullpen as a left-handed specialist for the rest of his career. He compiled over 100 innings in 63 appearances in his four seasons with a 6 ERA. Although Burroughs was mainly a pitcher, he did serve as an emergency DH in his first two seasons with a career Batting Average of .304 during that time.

In the off season, Burroughs is the Head Baseball Instructor at Nashville Baseball Academy. For the last nine years he has trained clients of all ages and skill levels, ranging from beginner to professional. Burroughs also works for Sidearm Nation, traveling around the world as a specialty instructor helping players develop the fine art of throwing from sidearm and submarine arm angles.

Russ graduated from Lipscomb University in 2009 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications. He currently resides in Nashville, TN.
