Gerald R. Berthiaume- One of the most talented outfielders to play for former USM baseball coach Dave Drew, Berthiaume went one to make baseball his career. After an injury-shortened stint in the Cincinnati Reds’ minor league system, Berthiaume hooked up with the Red Sox organization. He is currently the vice president and general manager of the New Britain (AA) Red Sox. “He could walk out there tomorrow in Double A and get a hit,” says Berthiaume’s former USM teammate Mark Mogul. “He’s a fierce competitor. He hit the ball with authority and in his healthy days he could run like a deer.” Berthiaume played just two seasons for USM but was an All-NAIA selection in 1975, his senior season. He was also the team MVP after hitting .363 and driving in 20 runs for the 14-8 squad. After receiving his associate’s degree in business at USM, Berthiaume moved on to West Chester State (Pa.) for a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education. For the past 15 years he has been a member of the Professional Ballplayers of America.
