Zephyrhills announced Tuesday that it has hired Ricky Anderton to coach baseball.
Anderton has been involved with baseball for almost 40 years as a player and coach with stints at Pasco and Wesley Chapel. He also has been involved in Little League and American Legion.
Principal Steve Van Gorden said in a release he looks forward to the stability and baseball knowledge Anderton brings to the position. It also signifies the current trend of hiring local known quantities to help solidify the Zephyrhills athletic department.
Anderton replaces Chad Sommers, who guided the Bulldogs to a 10-16 record in his only season. He stepped away due to time conflicts with his local business.
