The University of Albany Great Danes Baseball team is currently waiting to see who they'll play in the America East Tournament but they've won a major honor. Head Coach Jon "Bam Bam" Mueller is the unanimous winner of the America East Coach of the Year. As someone who has had the pleasure of talking baseball with and getting to know Coach Mueller I can't think of a better person to win this honor. As you would expect Bam Bam even handles winning with humility and gratitude.

We also picked Mueller's brain about the upcoming tournament game where the Danes wait to see whether they will play three seed Binghamton or six seed Hartford tomorrow. Both teams present different challenges but as the two seed Albany can put their top arm on the mound and and you're rested. Bam Bam also gave his take on the age old "Rest Vs Rust" debate.
