“I only had to live here for two months to know this is where I wanted to end up." - Jared Libke.
Jared Libke joined the Medicine Hat Mavericks in 2016, where his summers filled with baseball, screaming fans and sunshine. During his third year with the team, in 2018, he was hosted by a family through the Mavericks, and this helped him make his final decision to move to Medicine Hat permanently.
After Libke played his final season in 2018, general manager Greg Morrison asked him to join the coaching staff for the following year. Coaching had always been in the back of Libke's mind when he originally started, so he jumped at the opportunity when it was presented to him.
Two years later, Libke finds himself still coaching the youth camps for the Mavericks, working at a marketing firm for the family who previously hosted him and bartending at a new eatery in downtown Medicine Hat.
“Medicine Hat is such a great place to live. It’s not like a small town where there’s little to do. There’s activities all over the city that can be done."
When he first moved to Medicine Hat, he didn’t imagine his life being what it is now, and he expresses his gratitude for the sports organization that brought him to the city and helped him along the way.
“The people that the Mavs bring in are so high quality and I can’t thank them, and Greg, enough for everything they’ve done for me,” he says. “I only had to live here for two months to know this is where I wanted to end up. It’s the size of the city, it’s easy to get around and the people here are amazing. I absolutely love it.”
