Weston joins MASH as the Pitching Coordinator after six seasons serving as the pitching coach at Hamline University. In 2022–his final season with the Pipers–the pitching staff ranked fourth in Division III in shutouts, setting a new school record. The Piper staff also recorded the highest strikeouts-per-nine since 2008, the most strikeouts since 2011, and the lowest opponent batting average since 2013.
While at Hamline, Germain also founded Mill City Throwing, specializing in data-driven throwing programs powered by the latest technology in workload management. In 2020, he co-authored the paper A Data Driven Interval Throwing Program: Using Torque and Acute-to-Chronic Workload Ratios to Create a Throwing Framework for Baseball and Softball Players Returning from Upper Extremity Injuries, which improved upon the standard throwing program used during rehab. His work on that project—and his knowledge of workload management–led him to oversee the throwing programs of professionals around the world.
Weston also served as the Lead Clinician for the Minnesota Twins’ Reviving Baseball in Inner-Cities (RBI) program. In that role he helped to expand programming and increase high-level player development opportunities for RBI players throughout the Twin Cities.
Prior to moving to Minnesota from Michigan in 2016, Germain served as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Grand Rapids Community College for one season, overseeing a decrease in the pitching staff’s earned run average and a return to the NJCAA regional tournament. Several of the pitchers on the staff in 2016 went on to play at four-year schools, with one pitching professionally.
Weston also spent two summers coaching in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate Baseball League with the Grand Lake Mariners. With the Mariners he oversaw a staff of pitchers from every level of collegiate baseball and helped the Mariners reach the playoffs in back-to-back seasons.
As a prep pitcher in Michigan, Germain earned All-State Dream Team honors and was named the MHSBCA All-Star Game MVP. He set the single-season school record for wins (13) and innings pitched (88). He then moved on to Muskegon Community College–where he continued his success–being named a captain, earning All-Conference honors, tying the single season record for wins (8) and helping the Jayhawks to their first conference championship.
