Baseball: Galbraith new coach at Gloucester


By Phil Anastasia

Greg Galbraith has been named new baseball coach at Gloucester, athletic director Leon Harris announced Wednesday morning.

Galbraith, a former Gateway and Rutgers-Camden player, replaces John Oehler, who recently resigned to become head coach at West Deptford.

Galbraith was an assistant baseball coach at Gateway for the last five years. He also was an assistant football coach at Gloucester for the last three years.

He has been a Social Studies teacher at Gloucester for the last five years. He was a football and baseball player at Gateway and was a four-year baseball player at Rutgers Camden, mostly as a pitcher.

His hiring continues a chain reaction that began when Dennis Barth resigned as Gloucester Catholic's coach to become the coach at Rutgers Camden.

Barth was replaced at Gloucester Catholic by Mike Rucci, who resigned at West Deptford to take the position at his alma mater.

Rucci's resignation at West Deptford created an opening and Oehler resigned at Gloucester to take that position.
