2020 is looking to be an exciting year for the Voyagers as we welcome a some new members to our coaching staff, as well as look forward to the return of some of our tried and true returners.
The Voyagers are excited to welcome Mike Gellinger, the new manager of the Voyagers, and Jeremy Kneebusch, our new athletic trainer. We are also eager to welcome back John Ely , who is returning as Pitching Coach, Cam Seitzer, our second year hitting coach, and Tyler Gniadek, as the Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Gellinger is entering his eighth season coaching in the White Sox organization and first with the Voyagers. Since 1986, Gellinger has performed various roles with the White Sox organization, including minor league infielder, coach, and scouting analyst.
Ely is entering his fourth season in the White Sox organization and fourth with the Voyagers. Ely started his baseball career in Great Falls in 2007 after being selected in the third round of that year's draft. He pitched in 13 games and held a 6-1 record with a 3.86 ERA. He made his major league debut on April 28, 2010 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. His final year in the minors was in 2015.
Seitzer is entering his second year as Hitting Coach in the White Sox organization and Great Falls. In 2011 he was drafted as a first baseman by the Tampa Bay Rays. In 2016, he was signed by the White Sox and spent his 2018 season as a pitcher for the Winston-Salem Dash.
Gniadek is also entering his fourth season in the White Sox system and fourth as conditioning coach with Great Falls. Prior to working with the Voyagers, Gniadek spent the 2016 season as the strength and conditioning coach with the Orem Owlz. Before that, he interned with the Colorado Rockies and Triple A sport consultants.
