Hunter Bingham
Assistant General Manager

Hunter is originally from Denver, Colorado where he grew up playing baseball. Hunter went to William Jewell College in Kansas City, Missouri where he was a catcher and studied business management. Life changed dramatically when he encountered Jesus his freshman year of college. Hunter ended up graduating early from college and getting married to his wife, Gabby, in the spring of 2015. During this time the Lord led Hunter away from baseball while he pursued an internship working with his church and a start-up company with a friend. After an intense year of ministry and leadership development, Hunter felt a call from God to go back to baseball and minister to college baseball players.

In the summer of 2016, Hunter and Gabby moved from Kansas City to Rochester, NY where Hunter coached and was an assistant chaplain for an Athletes in Action collegiate team, the Rochester Ridgemen. After the summer, Hunter moved to Southern California to come out of retirement and pursue a master’s degree in leadership from Azusa Pacific University and play on their baseball team.

In addition to grad school and playing a final year, Hunter is serving the Catch as Assistant General Manager and then transitioning to be an assistant coach and assistant chaplain for the team during the summer. Hunter is passionate about college baseball players encountering the real Jesus and helping guys learn about integrating faith into their lives on and off the field.
