Position: Assistant Softball Coach
A former All-American from the University of Kansas and professional softball player for the Chicago Bandits joins the Baker Softball coaching staff for the 2014 season.
Maggie Hull-Tietz graduated from Kansas in 2013 with her bachelors’ degrees in Journalism and Spanish. During her time at KU, she broke the all-time Kansas career batting average record with a .368 average and the career RBI record with 140.
Her .456 batting average her senior year also set a new all-time single season record and is the third best single season average in Big 12 history. Hull-Tietz earned All-American recognition in 2013 and Academic All-American honors in both 2012 and 2013.
Last April, Hull-Tietz was selected 11th overall in the National Pro Fastpitch Draft and signed with the Chicago Bandits after her college career ended. She competed among the best softball athletes in the world during the 2013 summer season and posted a .250 batting average as a rookie.
Hull-Tietz currently lives in Lawrence with her husband, Kevin Tietz. Outside of Baker, she instructs private lessons at the Diamond Softball Academy in Olathe, Kan., writes articles for Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ online website fca.org and volunteers with Young Life College campus ministry at KU.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the Baker Softball coaching staff alongside Jamie Stanclift and Gary Hines,” Hull-Tietz said. “I am ready to transfer my playing experience to coaching skills and encourage our players to fight hard to win and to play with passion every pitch of every game.”
