The Boise Gems Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Jeff Reifman as head coach of the AA team for the 2017 summer season. The selection of Coach Reifman was made based on a new formalized process for the corporation to select the coaching staff. It is the Board’s desire to link the Timberline High School baseball program with Gems program at all levels and to have high expectations for our teams, as well as high expectations for how our players grow as young men. After meeting with coach Reifman and hearing his vision for our boys from Spring through Summer, it is apparent that he has a vision consistent with that of the Board’s for how our boys will play on the field, coalesce as a team, and carry themselves as young men. We are particularly impressed with his enthusiasm for the game itself, and for the values he wishes to impart on our young men. We look forward to a great Timberline season and an equally great Gems season. The Board will work with Coach Reifman to buildout the coaching staff at all levels with professionals having the same high expectations.
