FARMINGTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington Athletics Department welcomes seven new assistant coaches to its staff this fall.
A native of Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua, Hansack played parts of three seasons for the Boston Red Sox, making his major league debut on September 23, 2006, against the Toronto Blue Jays. In the final game of the 2006 season, Hansack pitched a no-hitter for five innings before the remainder of the game was rained out; because the game was rain-shortened, he was given credit for the complete game and the shutout, but not the no-hitter.
After starting both the 2007 and 2008 seasons in Triple-A Pawtucket, Hansack was again called up to Boston in mid-season. Over nine appearances in three seasons, he posted a 2-2 record with a 3.70 ERA over 24.1 innings pitched. Hansack recorded 18 strikeouts over his major league career with a 1.151 WHIP.
In the minor leagues, Hansack helped lead the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs to the 2006 Eastern League Championship and was named the Eastern League Championship Most Valuable Player, and was the team's 2006 pitcher of the year.
