HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - As the 2019 season winds down, the Sodbusters are thrilled to name a new General Manager going into Year 3 of Expedition League baseball.

The Sodbusters hosted a Memorial Day doubleheader against the Casper Horseheads.

Scott Galusha will take over GM duties from Bryan Frew starting September 1, 2019. Bryan and Scott will own the team together as Bryan steps into a baseball operations and coaching role.

Scott is originally from Lincoln, NE and has been involved with youth baseball and softball for 26 years, 20 in Grand Island. He had the honor of coaching Major Leaguers Joba Chamberlain and Alex Gordon for the Lincoln Rebels.

Scott and his wife, Karen, have 4 children; Kenny, Amanda, Madison, and Allee.

Ryan McClaran had to leave early this summer to get settled into his new job for El Paso Community College. But, he will be leading the Sodbusters for the 2020 season as well.

McClaran did a great job working with the pitching staff in 2019 and is looking forward to being a part of building the 2020 roster.

He will hire a hitting/baserunning coach to compliment his knowledge of
pitching. Coach McClaran is the Pitching Coach and Recruiting Coordinator for the El Paso Community College Tejanos.
