Kalaka returns to Le Moyne as a graduate assistant


Kyle Kalaka joins the ‘Phins Baseball coaching staff for his first season, serving as the team’s graduate assistant this year. Previously, Kalaka graduated from Le Moyne in 2012 where he was an integral member on the baseball team as well.


What made you want to come back to Le Moyne as a graduate assistant?

I love the game of baseball and the program here has treated me extremely well. I want to continue to be a big part of Le Moyne Baseball even if my playing days are over.


 What is your role in helping to assist the baseball team?

I help organize practice and typically work with the catchers on the team because that was my former position.


How has your baseball college experience helped with being a graduate assistant?

Playing baseball at the collegiate level has provided me with the knowledge and understanding of the game.  I take what I have learned and preach it to the student athletes I now coach.


What graduate work on you studying?

I am a member of the five year Accounting Program.  I am studying to finish my BA in Accounting and my Masters in Business Administration.


What is the baseball team working on to prepare for their season?

Currently the baseball team is in the off-season. We have a lifting program for our student athletes and it focuses on getting stronger and preventing injury.  Once we return from winter break we will begin practice and prepare for this year’s season.
