Marianna, FL---There has been a change in the coaching staff of the Marianna baseball team.
Head coach Andy Shelton has been removed from that post and replaced by former Marianna head football coach Steve Dewitt.
Principal Sarieta Russ telling the Jackson County Floridan Wednesday the school was "going in a different route." but did not elaborate. She did say even though Dewitt has been a football coach in the past, she believes he knows enough baseball to do that job.
Shelton was the Dogs head coach the last five seasons, his team 19-13 last year, winning a district title.
The timing of all this seems odd since the team's first game is less than a month away.
