A native of Bay City, Mich., Rademacher will be responsible for the Falcon catchers and will also be working closely with assistant coach Chandler Rose and the hitters.
Most recently, Rademacher finished playing professionally with the Traverse City Beach Bums of the Frontier Independent League. There he helped anchor a pitching staff which was second in the league in ERA while throwing out potential base stealers at a 45% clip.

Academically, Rademacher was an all-Big South Academic selection in both 2006 and 07.
