Tyler Junior College assistant baseball coach Robert Ellis has accepted an offer from the NY Mets Organization and has resigned from his duties at TJC, effective immediately. He has been named a Pitching Instructor for the Mets, and will report to the Mets spring training facility in Port St. Lucia.
"I can't express enough the thanks I have for the opportunity given to me by Tyler Junior College," said Coach Ellis. "Baseball is my passion, and TJC has a great group of guys on the team. I was not looking for a job, however this opportunity presented itself, and it was one I could not pass up."
