Aaron Izaryk - Maine Baseball Hall of Fame
On November 7, Bridgton Academy head baseball coach Aaron Izaryk was inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame. Since arriving as a player for the University of Maine in 2001, Aaron has made a positive impact on baseball in the state from a variety of roles on the way to his current position as the Director of Athletics and head baseball coach at Bridgton and general manager of the Sanford Mainers.
Wolverines can attest that, since his arrival in 2010, Coach Izaryk has re-invented the Bridgton baseball program, creating a full-year experience that shapes tough, dedicated student-athletes. 97 of his players have gone on to play at the next level and, under his leadership, Bridgton has become a force in New England prep school baseball. More than that, Coach Izaryk has been a teacher, mentor, and role model for hundreds of Wolverines on and off the field. “Aaron Izaryk has been the most influential mentor throughout my baseball career, even before I stepped on Bridgton’s campus,” shares alumnus Spencer Hill ’20, “I would absolutely not be where I am today without his professionalism. He displays every characteristic of a great leader which is why he has earned everyone’s respect.”
When asked about the experience, Coach Izaryk explained, “Being inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame has given me a chance to reflect on how many great people I’ve been able to meet, and how many outstanding opportunities I’ve had. There are so many great people already in the Hall of Fame, it’s incredible to be considered a part of that group.” Congratulations Coach, no one deserves it more!
