He helped lead the Flyers to the championship game of the Atlantic 10 Tournament in 2021. Decker helped guide the Crimson to a berth in the inaugural Ivy League Tournament in 2023, securing the No. 2 seed behind a 15-6 Ivy League record, marking Harvard’s most Ivy League wins since 2005. Prior to Harvard, Decker served as an assistant coach at the University of Massachusetts during the 2018 season. On the collegiate level, Decker played at both Trinity College (2012 and 2013 seasons) and Oberlin College (2014 and 2015 seasons). He helped the Bantams win the NESCAC title in 2012 before helping the Yeomen capture the 2015 NCAC title. He gained both All-NCAC and New York Regional All-Tournament Team accolades in 2015. The MBCA is excited to have Coach Decker speak about how to develop hitters and share results of a case study around hitting.
