Jimmy Crowley, a graduate of Dulaney High who was the 1987 Gatorade Maryland Player of the Year, has stepped down as Loyola Blakefield baseball coach after seven seasons.

Crowley went on to be an All-Atlantic Coast Conference player at Clemson University before being drafted by the Boston Red Sox. He played five seasons of professional baseball and is also the son of former Baltimore Orioles player Terry Crowley.

Crowley, the son of former Baltimore Orioles player Terry Crowley, spent one year as JV coach after arriving at Loyola, before taking over as varsity coach.

“Coach Crowley’s teams were always well coached and prepared, reaching the playoffs five of his seven years on varsity, and achieving a near .600 winning percentage,” said Loyola athletic director Mike Keeney. “Every year, some of his players would make the MIAA all-league  team, and several of his past players are still playing in collegiate programs. He leaves the program in a good place with a bright future.”

Loyola is currently accepting applications for the position. Qualified individuals should send their resume’ and a cover letter to Athletic Director Mike Keeney at mkeeney@loyolablakefield.org.
