Al Streelman Locker Room Campaign

The name “Al Streelman” reminds us of all that makes Washington College baseball a community and family like no other. Al would deflect the idea of honoring his long and dedicated career with the Shoremen and insist in his humble way that no recognition is necessary. The rest of us know he’s not only deserving, but inspiring to a generation of players, parents, colleagues and fans who feel privileged to know him – or even know of him — both on and off the field.

Fifty years ago, Al became a member of the Washington College varsity baseball team, graduating in 1969. He spent 18 seasons (1980-1997) as assistant baseball coach and 15 seasons as head coach (1998-2012), leading the team to its first two Centennial Conference Tournament berths in 2010 and 2012. Al was named Centennial Conference Coach of the Year in his final season before retiring in 2012, leading the team to a school-record 28 wins and a spot in the conference championship round that year. His 219 wins at WC represent the third-highest total for a head coach in team history, dating back to the 1870s.

In honor of Al’s 50 years of baseball, the WC baseball family would like to name the baseball locker room for Al and purchase much needed equipment for the team. The goal is $50,000. Peter Morgan ’84 and Matt Burke ’84 will match donations up to $50,000. You can honor Al by contributing to the “50 for 50” Streelman celebration campaign below.
