Don Lewis and Bob Ohmann were already familiar with each other through their teams’ collegiate baseball league rivalry.
Now the pair will lead the next chapter of Auburn baseball.
Lewis and Ohmann are the heads of Auburn Baseball, Inc., which recently agreed to a deal with the city of Auburn for use of Falcon Park, which will see Auburn join the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League this summer.
