Kenny Fleming ’15/’17 was named as Averett University’s baseball head coach on April 30, 2018.
Fleming returned to Averett after serving as an assistant coach at Division I Army West Point during the 2018 season. Fleming previously coached three seasons at Averett, beginning as a student assistant in 2015 and coaching two seasons as a graduate assistant during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. He became the fourth coach in Averett baseball history, taking over a program with more than 200 wins and a conference championship in 23 years of varsity play.
A native of Louisa, Virginia, Fleming has a wealth of baseball knowledge after playing collegiately and professionally. A 30th-round draft pick by the Atlanta Braves in 2010, Fleming played two seasons in the outfield for the organization’s rookie league affiliate Danville Braves alongside his younger brother, Kurt. Fleming played 100 games over two seasons in the Appalachian League.
Robby Swab joined the Averett University baseball program as an assistant coach in August 2017.
Swab came to Averett from the University of Virginia, where he served as the program’s director of baseball operations for three seasons — including the 2015 season when Virginia won the Division I national championship. Swab’s role included assisting with game day operations and on-campus recruiting.
Prior to Virginia, Swab was a volunteer assistant coach at Division I Gardner-Webb University, where he worked with coaches and hitters while serving as the first base coach. His coaching experience also includes time as an assistant coach with the Kernersville Post 36 American Legion baseball team and time as a baseball instructor at various camps.
