UMaine baseball coach faces mentor for the 1st time

It was a reunion on Monday night when University of Maine baseball coach Nick Derba exchanged lineup cards with his former college coach at Manhattan and his mentor at UMaine, Steve Trimper, who is the head coach at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.

The teams will conclude their two-game series on Tuesday night. This series is the first time the two coaches have faced each other.

Derba was recruited by Trimper and played two years under him at Manhattan before Trimper left for UMaine. Trimper eventually hired him as a UMaine assistant and Derba succeeded him first as interim coach in 2017 and then the full-time head coach after that season.
