DII baseball: Former Cy Young winner Jack McDowell begins a new era at Queens (NC)

So, how did the Stanford graduate and former west coast guy wind up on the small Charlotte, N.C. campus at Queens?

“I married a Wilmington [N.C.] girl,” McDowell said. “We moved here about six years ago. I found out through a friend of mine that Queens was starting up a baseball program. I live a half a mile from the campus, so I contacted them. Our Athletic Director, Cherie Swarthout, told me, ‘thanks for your interest, but we’re not looking to add baseball at this time.’ I was like, ‘dude, why’d you tell me that?’

“Literally a year later, Cherie contacted me, and started talking with me like a consultant. By going through that process we started talking more. I don’t think they were sure that I wanted to coach, and I wasn’t sure if they were looking for me to coach either. After awhile I was like, ‘hey, you guys think I can coach this, right?’”
