Malden Catholic baseball coach Freker resigns

Malden Catholic baseball coach Steve Freker announced his resignation today, effective immediately.

The school has opened a search for a new coach today. Assistant Athletic Director is expected to take over the reigns, for the time being.

Freker issued a statement to the local media on his resignation:

"Due to an unfortunate incident, verbal in nature and non-team related, where my behavior failed to meet the standards upheld by Malden Catholic High School, and after discussions with the school administration, it is my decision at this time to resign my position as head coach. I have had many years of great experiences and success at Malden Catholic and would like to thank everyone there for allowing me to coach at such a prestigious institution."
