It is a pleasure and a blessing to be a part of the Highlander Baseball program, it is an absolute honor to represent Radford University as its Head Baseball Coach. What I see in our young men as student-athletes on the field and as scholars in the classroom, truly embodies the pillars of our program. Everyday I expect our players to make a commitment to the coaching staff, their teammates, and themselves to do what it takes to hold up the integrity and meaning of what it means to be a Highlander. There will be challenging days, rewarding days, and all types of days in between but if you buy-in to what is being implemented in this program, we will achieve OUR ultimate goal. We are here to win. That takes a total commitment from everyone involved and we strive to achieve that goal every day. We hope it is your desire to be a part of this effort.
To discover and progress championship caliber student-athletes, and to provide them with the maximum quality of individualized resources and coaching needed to reach their full capability as baseball players and as young men in society.
The distance from Williams Field at Carter Memorial Stadium to TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha is 1,086 miles. The goal for the Highlanders is to be one of the 64 teams selected for postseason play and to earn Radford’s first trip to Omaha and the College World Series.
Radford has competed in two NCAA Regionals in the last five years (2015 and 2017). The Highlanders’ best season in school history culminated in 2015 when they reached the finals of the Nashville Regional, marking the furthest any Radford team has gone in the NCAA Tournament. That 2015 season also marked the first time the Highlanders won an NCAA Tournament game, as Radford had wins over Lipscomb and Indiana.
The Highlanders’ history is recent, as Radford has won two Big South Conference Tournament titles in the last five years– 2015 and 2017.
