Ivor Hodgson completed his second season as an Assistant Coach on the Mount St. Mary's staff in 2017.
Hodgson was a two-year standout for the Mount before being drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 17th round of the 2007 MLB Amateur Player Draft. He played five seasons in the Royals organization from 2007-11 and registered 15 career wins with a 3.81 ERA and 241 strikeouts in 283.1 innings. Hodgson's best season as a pro came in 2008 when he posted a 3.14 ERA with 67 strikeouts in 71.2 innings as a 22-year-old for Idaho Falls in the Rookie League.
The Silver Spring, Md. native owns the best career earned run average (3.23) and best career batting average against (.254) in program history. His 219 at bats and 49 runs scored during the 2007 campaign are both most in a single season in Mount St. Mary's history, and his 68 hits that season rank third all-time.
During his sophomore season in 2007, Hodgson hit .311 with 11 doubles, six home runs and 30 RBI, while also going 4-2 on the mound with a 3.23 ERA and 41 strikeouts.
