Anderson promoted to Disco Turkeys head coach

The Carolina Disco Turkeys are excited to announce that Noah Anderson has been promoted to head coach for the 2024 season.

Anderson, who is also head baseball coach at West Davidson High School in the school season, served as the Disco Turkeys’ assistant coach this past summer. 

He spent five seasons as a volunteer assistant coach at Carolina University from 2019 to 2023 and was a long-time assistant with the High Point-Thomasville Hi-Toms of the Coastal Plain League.  

“I’m looking forward to it, excited and ready to get going,” Anderson said of assuming the new role with the Disco Turkeys. “We had a good year last year and we’re looking to continue to build a strong program.”

Anderson takes over for Scott Kirby, who guided the Disco Turkeys to improved records each of his two seasons leading the team. The Disco Turkeys finished 21-13-1 last season. Kirby will stay with the team in a new role to help the program continue its growth. AJ Lewis will return for his fourth season as the team's pitching coach.

“We’re excited about the improvement we’ve seen with each season and the work of our players and all coaching staff,” said team president Greg Sullivan. “We’re excited to have Coach Anderson continue with us as manager.”

“Summer ball is all about getting good reps for the players,” Anderson said. “We’re getting them in here, putting them up against good competition and getting them ready for school ball.”

Anderson played baseball collegiately as an outfielder for Troy University in Alabama and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Disco Turkeys will begin their fourth season in late May of 2024.
