How a book club within Maryland baseball has helped create a culture of development

Rob Vaughn has been with the Maryland baseball program since 2013 but took over as the lead man in 2017. While his title is head coach, he sees his role as more than a baseball coach. He isn't just building better baseball players, he’s building young men to become better people.

For just that reason, a couple of years ago in the offseason, right around Christmas, Vaughn presented a list of books for players to choose from and read. It was the start of the Maryland baseball book club.

Vaughn and his coaching staff are big readers themselves and believe reading and retaining the information from good stories are invaluable for anyone, particularly a student-athlete.
