Ben Cole

Ben grew up in Parker, CO and graduated from Chaparral High school in 2018 where he was a three year varsity letterman in baseball, and helped the Wolverines to an improving record each year.

Although his playing days did not extend into college, He is currently in his second year pursuing a Sports Management degree with an emphasis in Business. 


Ben is part of the original Rogue club back in 2015 and played for Rogue during the summer and fall seasons through his senior year of High School in 2018. Playing the role as a “super-utility” guy, Ben found himself at almost every position on the field during his playing days, giving him a unique experience playing and learning from each coach Rogue had to offer.


Ben joined Rogue for his first coaching role as an assistant for the 2019 16U summer squad. He brings to the table three years of experience and life lessons that Rogue has to offer. Being his first coaching experience, he valued learning from both the players and the coaching staff that he became a part of. 


Ben is passionate about helping others and providing young players with the teaching experience that is baseball. He values the everyday lessons and memories he gained from baseball as it is something that he feels will forever keep him young. Ben is always willing to learn from his peers and help achieve the common goal as well as be an outlet to young players about anything and everything as he has recently been in that player position himself. He looks forward to working with his fellow coaches and players, as well as doing whatever he can to help Rogue Baseball grow.
