Coach Tom Frizzell Receives National Recognition
May 27, 2011
Coach Tom Frizzell
Kudos go out to Massasoit men’s baseball coach, Tom Frizzell for being selected for induction into the NJCAA Baseball Association’s National Hall of Fame. This is the first time Coach Frizzell was nominated for this prestigious award and he was selected as one of the inductees. Tom was inducted on May 27th in Grand Junction, Colorado. Coach Frizzell is only the third baseball coach from New England to achieve this level of excellence.

Coach Frizzell began his coaching career at Massasoit in 1988 when he was hired as the Assistant Coach to the team.  In 1991 he took over the position as Head Varsity Coach of the Massasoit Warriors. During this time, he led the Warriors to 8 NJCAA Regional Championships and 5 Districts Championships resulting in appearances in 5 World Series. The highlight of Tom’s career was when his 1993 team walked away with the NJCAA Division II National Championship. 

On the individual level, Tom has been chosen NJCAA Regional Coach of the Year 8x, NJCAA District Coach of the Year 5X, National Coach of the Year in 1993, and Coach of the Tournament at the 2005 NJCAA World Series.

Aside from his dedication on the baseball field, Coach Frizzell has received accolades for his community involvement, including the Brockton Boys and Girls Club “Man of the Year” in 1993, Stonehill College’s Joseph Martin Institute Award for Public Service in 1995 and the MEOP Award for Teaching Excellence in 2004.
