Black Mountain, NC
- The Montreat College (N.C.) Cavaliers baseball team plays in the NAIA's Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC). Success has been hard to come by in recent years for the program but that appears about to change. 


In 2016, they hired head coach Jason Beck from Florida's Southeastern University. Beck has the Cavaliers off to a good start and given a resumé that includes over 600 wins, it's a pattern that's set to hold at the squad's picturesque Newell Field. I was able to reach Beck via phone for the Black Mountain News and ask him about his approach to the game, his young squad, and what he sees ahead for a couple of his team's top talents. - TF
