Micah Baumfeld is a pitching coach at Lenoir-Rhyne. Baumfeld comes to LR after spending 10 seasons as the head coach at Georgetown (Ky.) and takes over a pitching staff that set the NCAA Division II and South Atlantic Conference single-season record with 647 strikeouts in a 46-win season for the Bears. 

In 10 seasons as the head coach for Georgetown, Baumfeld led the program to four NAIA Regionals, including the program's first NAIA World Series in 26 years in 2014. Georgetown also won their first ever Mid-South Conference Championship under Baumfeld in 2014. Overall, Baumfeld went 328-165 (.670) in his 10 seasons, and his teams set virtually every record in the program's history. 

Baumfeld was the pitching coach at Georgetown for two years before being promoted to head coach, and when he started as pitching coach, the Georgetown pitching staff was ranked No. 79 in the country. In just two seasons, Baumfeld transformed the staff to reach No. 1 in the nation in 2012, his first year as head coach. 

At Georgetown, Baumfeld coached the first NAIA pitcher taken in the 2018 MLB Draft (Shawn Dubin, Houston Astros), and two First-Team All-Americans. He also had two Honorable Mention All-Americans, two Mid-South Players of the Year, two Mid-South Pitchers of the Year and 23 First-Team All-Conference players (13 pitchers).

Baumfeld is a 2003 graduate of Medialle College (N.Y.), where he was a member of the baseball team. He and his wife Amanda have two sons, Landen and Seaver.
