Luther Baseball has a rich tradition, and I've been fortunate to be part of this tradition going on my fifteenth season. Our goal is to provide a first rate college baseball experience for our student-athletes. The support of our alumni is outstanding, and it is a highlight for me to stay connected to former players that I've been fortunate to coach and hear the stories of players that have been part of this storied program. Each year there is new excitement with new players joining the program, and I'm always anxious to see our guys move to the campus for the first time in the fall.
