A wealth of baseball knowledge accompanies Mike Kane as he
takes the reins of Cyclone baseball for the 2014-15 season.
Kane actually makes a return to Moraine Valley after being an assistant coach for two seasons (1987-88). He also was the head junior varsity coach at Lewis University. Most recently he comes from Prairie State College, where he was an assistant coach, focusing on hitting and infield instruction, from 2013 to 2014.
The former third baseman spent some time in the minors in the early 1980s. He was a second-round draft pick out of Truman College by the Red Sox and played two seasons in the Boston organization in Class A before a knee injury sidelined him.
When not coaching, Kane works for a freight company. He hails from Tinley Park with his wife and two children.
