Statement from Coach Mercer


Official Release :

Statement from Indiana Head Baseball Coach Jeff Mercer 

“The health and safety of our student-athletes is our main concern and we support the decisions to keep them safe. As disappointed as we all are, this was the right decision. I pray today, as I have for weeks, for those impacted by this virus and for our health officials fighting to eradicate it.”


“I’ve enjoyed this group tremendously. They have a great temperament and personality and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed coming to work with them. Each day I was more impressed by their investment into the program and each other, their work ethic, determination and toughness.They’ve made me so very proud in a short period of time.”
“I do wish Hoosier Nation would have had a chance to get to know this group as I have . There’s little doubt you would’ve shared my pride and admiration for them. They’ll leave a lasting impact on our staff and a legacy to be remembered. They certainly love Indiana and left our program better than they found it and for that we’ll always be grateful.”
