Though the Minnesota prep baseball season remains in limbo due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, Duluth Marshall hired a new coach Tuesday.

Nick Garramone, a 1998 Duluth Denfeld graduate who led the 2017 Western Duluth Intermediate team to a state championship, was named as coach of the defending Class AA state champions.

Garramone served as an assistant baseball coach and head recruiting coordinator at Wisconsin–Superior from 2006-13. He replaces Joe Wicklund, who left the Hilltoppers program to become the new baseball coach at Garramone's alma mater.
