Lance Berkman steps down as Second Baptist high school baseball coach

Lance Berkman

Lance Berkman has stepped down as the head baseball coach for Second Baptist School in Houston.

Berkman, who played 12 seasons for the Houston Astros, was the head coach at Second Baptist for four seasons. In a statement shared by FOX 26 reporter Mark Berman, Berkman said he took the job to build his resume to eventually become the coach at Rice, his alma mater. Rice went a different direction with their coaching hire last summer, and Berkman has decided coaching high school ball is no longer something he wants to do.

Berkman took over a very successful program in 2016 and helped lead it to a TAPPS 4-A state championship in 2016. The program since fell off a bit the last two years.

Berkman, 43, led MLB in doubles twice and RBIs once during his playing career. He made six All-Star teams.
