Can confirm that St. John's baseball coach Ed Blankmeyer is leaving St. John's to take a job with the Mets, per source.

Ed Blankmeyer will be manager of the Cyclones and extended spring training coordinator.

Great guy. Was introduced to him by Jack Kaiser. Told Ed I was the only undefeated baseball coach at St.John's. Of course it was for one game against Hofstra. Kaiser was sick so Louie asked me to take the undefeated freshmen team at Ebbets Field. Larry Bearnarth,Shremeta, Russo and Wolf were on the team. Phew, couldn't afford to lose.
Sorry to lose this coach.

While a huge college basketball fan, baseball has always been my favorite sport. As I have had some more free time the last few years, I have been fortunate to catch a few St. John’s games which if you get the right weather are a lot of fun. St. John’s has a fantastic program. It’s not easy playing college baseball in the northeast. Best of luck to Coach Blankmeyer and best of luck to the new coach when they are chosen.

Yes, my instinct is that they won't recover from this long term, but the program did go seamlessly from Jack Kaiser, to Joe Russo, to Ed Blankmeyer, so there's hope, IMO.

While a good move and congrats to him, a huge loss for the baseball program at St. John's. Good luck Coach.

More than likely the best baseball coach in the Big East, and over his tenure I believe the best baseball program in the conference as well.

Anyone familiar with the program know if an assistant in the wings is capable?
