Former star pitcher Maine joins 49ers baseball staff

Former 49ers pitcher John Maine has been added to the baseball coaching staff as a volunteer assistant.

Maine, a former Conference USA pitcher of the year for Charlotte, had a major league career that included stops with the New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles and Miami Marlins. Maine won 41 games over his eight-year career, a highlight coming when he won Game 6 of the 2006 NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Maine is the latest of a few former 49ers athletes who have joined Charlotte coaching staffs recently. Mikel Hunter is a football grad assistant; Owen Darby is men's soccer director of operations; and Colby Lewis was promoted from graduate manager to assistant director of operations.

College basketball starts back next month and Alan Majors is still on his paid summer vacation! He is not concerned with getting his players back into the classroom routine and we still havent released a full basketball schedule!

Major had two surgeries. Give him a break. He tweeted his thanks for all the well wishes.

Give him a break? He has had a 3 month break! How many sick days does he get?? And we gave the guy a new contract when he had lost more games than he won! I would give the guy a KitKat bar and tell him to hit the road!
