It's always nice when a former employer gives you a great recommendation. This one comes from Florida Southern coach Pete Meyer for Mike Bell. Bell was a top-notch recruiter and pitching coach who helped build the foundation for Florida Southern's Division II national title in 2005. Meyer remembers him this way:
"His dream job was Florida State — even back then. He was a guy that had the ACC and Omaha experience and understood what we wanted to accomplish here… He was calm; he never got excited. He related well to the players. He understood talent, and he knew how to get them to play on the field."
