Patrick O'Sullivan enters his third season as the Aviators' hitting coach and brings an impressive hitting background to the club.

At the end of the 2010 season, O’Sullivan was 13th on the active minor-league home-run list, with 200. The former New York Mets farmhand finished his career with a .317 average in 12 professional seasons. In his final season, he hit 13 home runs, two shy of the RiverHawks record. No right-handed Rockford player has hit more in a year. He also rebounded from a slow start to hit .287 with 50 RBI.

O’Sullivan played collegiately for three years at NAIA Freed-Hardeman University and a year at Austin Peay State. He was a two-time all-conference and all-region selection and was named an NAIA All-American in 1998 as well as the Tennessee Small College Player of the Year. He holds FHU records for single season batting average, on-base percentage, doubles and extra base hits and the career records for batting average, home runs and slugging percentage. O’Sullivan was inducted into the FHU Athletics Hall of Fame last September.

The Mets picked O’Sullivan in the 34th round of the 1999 draft. He spent much of his career in the Class AAA Mexican League and in domestic independent leagues as a professional hitter. O’Sullivan hit at least 20 home runs in five straight seasons, 2004-08. In 2004, he hit a career-best 37 homers in a combined 143 games between San Luis Potosi in Mexico and Edinburg in the now-defunct Central League. He was a Mexican League All-Star that season
