Central Maine Community College Head Baseball Coach, Brandon Rolfe, joins the Mustangs heading into the 2019 season.
Rolfe graduated from Hebron Academy in 2007 and lettered in three Varsity sports (Football, Swimming, Baseball). As a LHP and OF, Rolfe was awarded First Team MAISAD All Conference honors in 2005, 2006, and 2007, and led the Lumberjack Baseball team to back-to-back MAISAD championships in 2006 and 2007.
From 2007 to 2009, Rolfe attended Dean College in Franklin, MA, and joined a NJCAA Division II, Region XXI baseball program on the rise. During the 2008-2009 season he was part of a starting pitching rotation that helped lead the Bulldogs to a 28-10 record, setting the club single season record for wins, while finishing third in the region both seasons.
In the fall of 2009, Rolfe transferred to Thomas College in Waterville, ME, and joined the Terriers for the 2011 season before stepping away from a playing career to put focus and emphasis on a post-college professional career.
After receiving his Bachelors Degree in Sport Management with a Marketing Concentration in December of 2012, Rolfe was hired by the Bowie Baysox (Baltimore Orioles AA Affiliate) in Bowie, MD as their Stadium Operations Assistant, and eventually Manager. In this role, he oversaw the daily operations, event operations, and facility operations of 10,000 seat Prince George’s Stadium for two seasons. In December of 2014, Rolfe was hired as the Ballpark Operations Coordinator for the Washington Nationals, where he supported the daily operations of Nationals Park in Washington, DC. This role consisted mostly of project and contract management, which included the oversight and implementation of all in-park signage components, ballpark related projects and improvements involving third party contractors/vendors, and supporting initiatives through various front office departments. During his three-year tenure in Washington, DC, the Nationals celebrated their 10 year anniversary in 2015, while winning the NL East Division in 2016 and 2017.
Rolfe donated much of his time as a volunteer academic mentor and baseball coach at the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy, tutoring and coaching student-athletes using the sports of baseball and softball as vehicles to foster positive character development, academic achievement and improved health among youth from underserved communities in Washington, DC.
Rolfe returned to Maine in the spring of 2018 and, in his inaugural season with the Mustangs, is enthused and excited to translate his knowledge and passion for the game into building a winning tradition and a successful baseball program at CMCC.
