Scott Manshack joined the RBI coaching staff in January prior to the 2014 season as a Pitching/Hitting Instructor. Manshack, who was a four-year letter winning pitcher at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will work alongside Todd Raleigh in mentoring the RBI facility members.
Scott Manshack recorded 14 victories during his four-year collegiate career in Chapel Hill, making 51 appearances including 32 starts. He tossed 164 career innings, amassing 140 strikeouts in four seasons. He was a part of three North Carolina squads that competed in the NCAA tournament, playing in the Columbia (S.C.) Regional in 2002 and 2004, and winning the Starkville (Miss.) regional and advancing to Columbia Super Regional in 2003.
His best collegiate season came as a sophomore in 2002 as he started 10 games with an equal number of relief appearances while compiling a perfect 7-0 overall record – just the 10th perfect season in UNC baseball history. He pitched a complete game, five-hit shutout against Elon on April 29, 2002, which at the time continued a string of 15-consecutive scoreless innings of work.
During the fall prior to his junior and senior years, Manshack garnered the squad’s “Top Gun” award from the Tar Heel coaching staff for the best overall pitcher during off-season practices. As a senior, he was a part of one of the deepest pitching staffs in the NCAA, moving to the bullpen from a previous weekend starting role.
A native of Indian Trail, N.C., Manshack spent two summers in the collegiate wooden bat Coastal Plain League as a player, spending one summer in Asheboro and a second in Gastonia, earning a combined six victories on the hill with a pair of complete games.
Scott Manshack joined the University of Western Carolina coaching staff in February prior to the 2012 season as a volunteer assistant coach. Manshack worked alongside Bobby Moranda in mentoring the Catamount pitching staff. With Moranda and Manshack’s guidance the 2012 WCU pitching staff had a team ERA of 4.20.
Manshack was a three-time, all-conference selection out of Piedmont High in Monroe, N.C., and earned All-State accolades once. Tossing a pair of no hitters during his high school career, he was chosen to play in the North Carolina State Games three out of his four years and guided Piedmont High to a conference title in 1999. Manshack also competed in the East Coast Professional showcase three years.
A 2004 graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in communication studies, Manshack has worked the past nine years with State Farm Insurance. In 2006, he served as the junior varsity head baseball coach at Smoky Mountain High in Sylva, and was the varsity assistant coach in both 2007 and ’08. 2009-2011 Scott coached different age groups of NC travel baseball teams.
In 2013 Manshack was the head coach of The Western Carolina Young Gunz. The Young Gunz was nationally ranked in the upper tier of AA travel baseball teams. The Young Gunz reached number 1 nationally ranked in AA 9 year old age group.
Manshack and his wife, the former Amy Wolfe, have twin daughters, Abby and Haley. Scott and Amy are also expecting their first son in late May.
Coach Raleigh on Scott:
“Scott does a great job with the 10U team. His vast experience and knowledge is a large reason why the 10U has had the success they have had.” He certainly knows baseball and does an excellent job with the pitchers. Class act in everything he does. WNC and RBI is fortunate to have someone that has played at such a high level.”
