Tom McNamara

Director of Amateur Scouting for Seattle Mariners

Tom McNamara, named RCC’s All-Conference baseball player in 1985, is Director of Amateur Scouting for the Seattle Mariners. "It’s a privilege to work in professional baseball,” he says.

Now in his 19th year of pro ball, McNamara believes RCC was the ideal place for him to improve his baseball “tools” after graduating from Albertus Magnus High School in 1983. He is grateful to his RCC baseball coaches, Robert Nadal, who passed away recently, and Dan Keeley, now Director of Arena Management & Athletics. McNamara transferred to Dominican College, where he used his speed to establish a school record of 71 stolen bases.

Following a season of playing on the Bellingham (WA) Mariners, McNamara joined the RCC Hawks coaching staff, and helped guide the Hawks to the 1993 NJCAA World Series. He later worked with the Mariners as a Northeast region scout and returned to Seattle after scouting stints with the Milwaukee Brewers and San Diego Padres organizations.

McNamara was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame at both RCC and Dominican.
