Ray Manchester

Head Coach

Ray Manchester is a former college baseball player at USC Salkehatchie, a rec and JV softball coach, and a firefighter in Charleston. He submitted this photo as a joke, and now he has to live with it forever. That mustache is timeless.

George Mullen

Asst Coach

George does not like his photo on the internet. I told him that he has certainly been inadvertently featured on his daughters Insta and TikTok, but he's still reluctant. If I get a good pic of him I'll post it here. He's an assistant coach for 12u and the organizations pitching consultant.

Kristen Halter

Asst Coach

Kristen is a former switch hitting player at Spartanburg Methodist College who played first base and all outfield positions. This is her second summer coaching the 12U Shockers. She loves the game and being able to make an impact on every girl she coaches.

Joe Parolin

Asst Coach

Coach Joe is in his first year with the Charleston Shockers Organization. Joe was originally from Midwest and moved to Charleston in 2003. He started coaching his daughter in 10u softball in Mount Pleasant for the Recreation Department, and his previous experience includes two seasons (spring 2019 & fall 2019) with Mount Pleasant Recreation Department as 10u girls as assistant head coach, assistant head coach for Summer 2019 Cooper River Raptors 10U girls tournament team.

Joe is a dedicated coach leading by example, effort and attitude. He instills in players to be accountable and to set and achieve goals not only in sports but in school as well as life.
