He will forever be part of our family both on and off the field, Parker and his coaching staff did a wonderful job of bringing some of the best college baseball players from around the country to Medford.”
Coach Berberet said, “Coaching for the Medford Rogues has been a wonderful experience for me and my family. Over the last four years, I have watched my daughter grow up at the ballpark and will always cherish the memories of summers at Harry & David Field. Having dealt with some health issues this year, I have made the difficult decision to step down as head coach, said Berberet. The Rogues are a first-class organization, and I wish them the best moving forward. I’ll never forget the relationships built with the Rogues family and the memories made with each group of guys that came through the program.”
