Shultz has had a wide variety of experiences early in his coaching career
Hornell Steamers General Manager Paul Welker is excited to have Shultz on board. “I have been really impressed with Curtis from day one. He was recommended by former Dodger manager Tony Fuller and former player Jake Marinelli. I expect the 2023 team to work hard and bring excitement to Maple City Park.”
