Ryan McIntosh is in his fifth season as assistant coach for the Plymouth State baseball team. McIntosh is a Lincoln, N.H. native who was among the state’s best players at both Lin-wood High School and then Plymouth State.
McIntosh plays a large role on the coaching staff, working with hitters and base runners on both their mental and physical approach to the game. His tactical approach to the game has fostered a fast-paced offensive style. In his first season running the Plymouth State offense, McIntosh helped the team achieve all-time records in multiple categories. The 117 stolen bases as a team was far more than any previous Plymouth State baseball total. Additionally, PSU set records in individual doubles in a game and season, as well as stolen bases in a game and season.
In 2015, PSU baseball hit two home runs; in 2016, McIntosh was instrumental in helping to improve that total to 18. In 2018, PSU finished first in the nation in stolen bases per nine innings, a testament to McIntosh's baserunning strategies.
As a three-year player at Plymouth State, McIntosh's production was impressive with 71 RBI and 30 doubles. He was thrown out only once on the base paths over his collegiate baseball career. McIntosh brings his diverse experience, along with his teaching-style approach to coaching to the Panther coaching staff.
After graduating from Plymouth State, McIntosh became a certified personal trainer for private clientele at local golf courses and clubs. In addition to personal training, he now serves as the manager of the Motion Analysis Laboratory in Charlestown, Mass. - a Harvard-based biomedical research lab specializing in robotics, wearable technology and biomechanics.
