Kennebec Journal baseball Coach of the Year: Marc Fortin, Winthrop
Laid-back skipper guides Ramblers from missing playoffs to second seed in Class C South.

...Coach Marc Fortin figured Winthrop would be back, what with an entire starting lineup coming back. But even he was surprised by what unfolded this season.

The Ramblers flipped their record and rose to the upper tier of the Class C South standings, grabbing the region’s No. 2 seed and reaching the South semifinals. For his role in guiding Winthrop back into the playoffs, Fortin is the Kennebec Journal Baseball Coach of the Year. Hall-Dale’s Bob Sinclair, Erskine’s Lars Jonassen and Richmond’s Ryan Gardner were also considered.

“Last year, I thought we lost a lot of close games, and this year we seemed to be on the other side of a lot of those close games,” Fortin said. “If you were to ask us before the season started if we thought we would have the kind of success we had this year, I don’t think we would have said we’d end up as the No. 2 seed.”
