Ron Maurer brings his valuable playing experience in all infield positions, including catching to his coaching abilities. While he attended the University of North Carolina (UNC), Maurer was a three time All-ACC shortstop and played in the 1989 College World Series. Maurer holds two UNC records; one is for the longest hitting streak (31 games), and the other is for total fielding assists in a single season (220). In 1990, he was taken in the 23rd round of the MLB draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
A professional baseball player for 10 years, Maurer spent five of those years with the Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque, NM. In 1995 Ron did something that no other player has ever done: he played all nine positions in a single game, he still remains the only player to ever do so.
Maurer spent part of his career overseas as a player in the Chinese Professional Baseball League in Taiwan. Primarily a shortstop, Maurer was selected as a three time All-Star Player and as a Gold Glove recipient.
Maurer rounds out his impressive resume with some professional scouting knowledge, as he spent 10 days in the Atlanta Braves Scouting and Player Development School in 2000. Maurer’s distinctive personal career has been guided by numerous major league players, coaches, and managers and includes playing time with many former and current major leaguers.
