Former Cal Poly, Blues standout Van Ostrand hired as Boston College baseball volunteer assistant

Former Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo Blues standout outfielder Jimmy Van Ostrand has been hired as a volunteer assistant coach at Boston College.

“It is extremely important to me that we surround our players with high-character people who can help them develop on the field and also into quality men off the field. I think Jimmy fits that mold and is a great fit with our staff,” Boston College head coach Mike Gambino said in a statement. “He is coming off a great playing career and comes to us with extensive experience that our boys will be able to draw from. He will be a huge asset to our program, and we are extremely lucky and excited to have him join as staff.”
