Wayne Duggan
College: MIT '06
Position: Volunteer Assistant Coach
Weapon: 2nd Year
Entering his first season as an assistant coach, Duggan will help with all aspects of the program. In particular, he will work with MIT's hitters who will undoubtedly benefit from his experience as a four-year starter for the Engineers. Graduating MIT as one of the top hitters in the New England Region, Duggan is arguably the best player to ever don an MIT uniform. Although his most notable accomplishments were at the plate, Duggan was also looked upon as the "ace" of a young pitching staff over his years as an Engineer. Even more impressive than any of his personal statistics is the fact that Duggan spearheaded MIT's resurgence onto the New England baseball scene. The Engineers went from winning only 7 games his freshman year to 21 his senior year and his contributions as a player were a key ingredient in MIT's first ever back-to-back 20 win seasons and ECAC appearances. The most notable team accomplishment, however, was the program's first ever appearance in the NEWMAC Championship game in 2006 where the Engineers were defeated by World Series runner-up and #2 nationally ranked Wheaton College. Over his four years at MIT, Duggan received numerous honors. He was a three-time NEWMAC All-Conference Selection, three-time team MVP, and one-time ABCA and Rawlings New England All-Region selection. Duggan finished his career with an impressive .396 all-time batting average to go along with 176 hits, 18 home runs, and 116 RBI. On the mound, Duggan was equally impressive. Over his two years as a starter he compiled a 10-5 record with an E.R.A. of 3.16. Currently Duggan resides in Boston and is attending law school at Suffolk University. Duggan graduated MIT in 2006 and majored in brain and cognitive sciences.
