Mike Roberts – Head Coach
Coach Roberts, who led the Kettleers to a 2013 Cape Cod League Championship, returns for his 12th consecutive season in 2015. During his coaching tenure in the Cape League, which includes 2 seasons in Wareham in 1984 and 2000 where both teams made the play-offs, Coach Roberts has led his team to the play-offs in 8 of the 11 seasons in Cotuit. The Kettleers have brought home the Arnold Mycock trophy to Cotuit in 2010 and 2013. In 2012, the team won the President’s Trophy for the best regular season record in the league at 30-14. This was the first time the Kettleers had reached 30 wins under Coach Roberts’ leadership.
From 1978 through 1998, Roberts was the head coach at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Then he went on to UNC-Asheville, where he coached in the spring of 2000. All totaled, Roberts’ UNC teams made nine NCAA post-season and two College World Series appearances. Five times his teams captured the ACC Regular Season Championship and four times the ACC Tournament Championship. Eight of Roberts’ former players have been first round draft picks. Sixteen of his former players at UNC have played in Major League Baseball. His greatest individual coaching success is his own son, Brian Roberts, who played 14 seasons in the Major Leagues and was a two time all-star 2nd baseman for the Baltimore Orioles.
Walt Weiss, who played for Coach Roberts at UNC-CH and went on to become the American League Rookie of the year in 1988, is the manager of the Colorado Rockies. Five of Coach Roberts’ former players are now collegiate head coaches, many are assistants, and several others work in professional baseball or are professional baseball athletes’ advisors. “I am pleased so many of the excellent student/athletes I have recruited through the years continue to enjoy a career helping young men try to reach their academic, athletic, and career goals.”
Every summer in Cotuit the goal is to win a Cape League Championship. We strive to accomplish this goal with mature college student-athletes from around the nation who embrace practicing and playing at picturesque Elizabeth Lowell Park. Many of the Kettleers players become involved in our wonderful community with activities such as the Cotuit library writing program and the ever-growing Kettleers baseball clinics. The athletes provide excellent leadership to young people during the summer as they are also building close relationships, many which last a lifetime, with their host families.
Prior to managing Wareham to the Western Division regular season title in 2000, Roberts had led Wareham to the same title in 1984. Each of those two seasons, Roberts’ Cape League teams led the entire League in stolen bases and continued this tradition with the 2012 Kettleers. In 2000, Roberts’ Wareham team tied the Cape League all-time single season stolen base record with 134 stolen bases.
In the off-season, Coach Roberts has studied part-time for his Doctorate in Sports Administration at the University of New Mexico, does base stealing clinics, writes, and produces baseball videos. He has written 2 books on base stealing. The first titled “You Can’t Steal Second Base and Keep Your Foot on First!” published in Dec. 2008 and the 2nd book titled “Baserunninq” was published in Dec. 2013. He is now consulting with the Chicago Cubs, as well as colleges, on base stealing and base running.
Several base stealing videos were filmed at beautiful Elizabeth Lowell Park in Cotuit in 2011 and a hitting video was filmed at Lowell Park in 2012. His son Brian, who led the American League in stolen bases in 2007, contributed to the first book and the DVD which shows clips of Brian stealing bases for the Orioles.
Mike works full-time for Asbury University, outside of Lexington, Kentucky, as director of the Department of Sports Management and Assistant professor, and he consults for the Chicago Cubs. In January 2015, Coach Roberts was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame.
Brian Scott – Assistant Coach

He was a coach in the Duluth East High School baseball program in Duluth, Minnesota during the springs of 2013 and 2014. Brian has worked at summer baseball camps at DePauw, Chesterton High School, the Training Center Baseball School, and U.S. Baseball Academy in Duluth-Proctor, Minnesota. He spent two years teaching environmental education at the Dunes Learning Center in Northwest Indiana and two years at the N.E.E.D. Academy (Seashore Program) in Truro, Massachusetts. Brian’s hometown is Chesterton, IN, and he currently lives in Duluth, MN.
Noah Scott – Assistant Coach
Noah returns for his fourth season with the Kettleers in 2015. He was the team’s Sports Performance Coach from 2008 through 2010. The Kettleers reached the Championship Series each of those three seasons, eventually winning the CCBL Championship in 2010. Since then, fourteen of his former Kettleers players have gone on to play at the Major League level. From 2008 to 2013, Noah worked as a year-round Performance Specialist to MLB veteran outfielder, Vernon Wells. Noah has been a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) for nearly a decade and carries the highly respected Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) credential. He is also certified as a Level-I Sports Performance Coach under USA Weightlifting (USAW). Noah holds a B.S. in Health and Exercise Science from Northwestern Oklahoma State University (2007). He is a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and is CPR/AED certified through the American Red Cross. Noah resides in North Richland Hills, TX, and is the Owner and Sports Performance Director of Rize Human Performance, a high-octane sports training company that specializes in training elite high school, college, and professional baseball athletes.
Nolan Clark – Assistant Coach
Nolan Clark enters his second season with the Cotuit Kettleers in 2015, this time as an assistant coach. Clark first played for Cotuit behind the plate during the 2013 CCBL season helping to lead the team to another championship ring. Clark went on to complete his collegiate baseball career at Concordia University in Irvine, California, where he earned multiple All-Conference distinctions. During his baseball career, Clark has achieved Gold Glove and All-American honors. Clark signed as a free agent and played for the Philadelphia Phillies Williamsport Crosscutters.
Graduating in 2014, Clark earned a degree in Exercise Sports Science with an emphasis in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University. Clark looks to use those skills as he pursues his goal of coaching baseball at the highest levels. Clark lives in Orange County, California, has four sisters, and in his free time enjoys fishing and coaching his youth travel baseball team.
Trey McCall – Assistant Coach
Trey McCall is entering his 10th season of his second stint and 11th year overall as Head Baseball Coach at Emory & Henry College. Returning to Emory in the fall of 2005, he is the first full-time head coach in the history of the Wasps’ program. During the summer of 2013, McCall served as an assistant coach for the Cotuit Kettleers of the Cape Cod Baseball League. He helped lead the Kettleers, a team made up of many elite-level Division I players, to the Cape League Championship.
In 2012 the Wasps had a breakout season, tying for third in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference after being picked to finish 10th. McCall led E&H to its first ODAC Tournament appearance since 1999 and saw four players named all-conference, earning him ODAC Coach of the Year honors.
A legendary high school baseball catcher and power hitter who was selected 16th in the First Round in the 1985 Major League baseball draft, McCall spent four and a half seasons in the Philadelphia Phillies organization and progressed to the major league spring training camp for the 1988 season. McCall has a BA in business from E&H and a Masters in PE from East Tennessee State. He resides in Abingdon, VA, with wife Laura and two daughters, Katherine and Elizabeth.
