At this point, Keith Griffin's name is synonymous with the Amsterdam Mohawks and summer baseball in the Rug City.

For at least one more year, he's keeping it that way.

The franchise's all-time winningest head coach with 176 wins and four league titles in five seasons with the Mohawks is coming back for a sixth tour of duty in 2014.

"Somebody goes to me: 'Why would you want to do it again? You've been there five (years) and won it four times.'" said Griffin, Wednesday, via telephone from his home in Pensacola, Fla. "And I think we can win it again, that's why I'm coming back up there."
