Rock Valley College head baseball coach Kevin Vest has been named an associate scout for the Philadelphia Phillies. Vest, who will continue in his role as the Golden Eagles skipper, will report to area scout David Seifert.
"As our program at Rock Valley College continues to grow this gives me an opportunity to gain insight into the Major League Baseball draft process that will be beneficial to our current and future players," said Vest. "In addition, I am honored to be able to assist in identifying professional prospects in our area to the Philadelphia Phillies."
The Rock Valley College baseball team will open its fourth season under Vest's leadership on March 10 and will play its home opener on March 16 versus Elgin Community College at 1:00 p.m. at RVC Field.
