WORDEKEMPER JOINS PITCHING INSTRUCTION TEAM

Eric Wordekemper brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Tom Oldham Baseball staff as the current pitching coach at Creighton University. An 11-year veteran in the professional ranks, Wordekemper was drafted by the New York Yankees following the 2005 season, pitching at the A, AA & AAA levels for the Bronx Bombers.  Wordekemper pitched at the AAA level for the Yankees in 2006 (Columbus) as well as from 2009-11 (Scranton/Wilkes-Barre). Sidelined by Tommy John surgery in the fall of 2013, Eric returned to Creighton to complete his undergraduate degree (2015) in leadership studies. As Wordekemper worked to return to the professional ranks, Coach Servais saw an opportunity to help a former player as well as his current squad by bringing Eric on as an undergraduate assistant in for the 2014 season.
