One of America's best amateur baseball facilities!

One of America's best amateur baseball facilities, Blair Field in Long Beach will once again be the home site for 49er games. Blair Field is by Long Beach State under an extended lease from the City of Long Beach and is in Recreation Park at the corner of 10th Street and Park Avenue. Blair Field has been honored by Baseball America as one of the top 15 collegiate ballparks in the nation.


Troy Buckley


Head Coach

One of the most respected pitching coaches in the nation, Troy Buckley enters his sixth season as the head coach of Long Beach State. In his first five seasons, Buckley has led the Dirtbags to a winning record in every season and ended a six-year drought with a return to the postseason in 2014.

Last season got off to a promising start as Long Beach State opened with six wins in their first seven games, eventually pushing their record to 9-3 before hitting a rough stretch in the schedule. Buckley's team played well at the friendly confines of Blair Field in 2015, going 21-10 in home games. On the flip side, LBSU was just 7-16 on the road against strong programs like Arizona State, Cal Poly, Indiana and Cal State Fullerton.

A handful of Dirtbags were honored after the season, led by Big West Freshman of the Year Chris Mathewson, who was also a first-team All-Big West selection. Mathewson was the first Long Beach State freshman pitcher to earn that distinction in a quarter century. Sophomore shortstop Garrett Hampson, senior pitcher Kyle Friedrichs and freshman designated hitter Brock Lundquist were all second-team selections and first baseman Luke Rasmussen was an honorable mention selection.


Greg Bergeron


Assistant Coach

Long Beach State Dirtbags head coach Troy Buckley brought Greg Bergeron back home to the West Coast as the Dirtbags' newest assistant coach. Bergeron makes his return to Southern California where he has spent the majority of his 20-year coaching career.

Bergeron comes to the Beach to run the Dirtbags' offense and work with the infielders - a familiar job for the Cerritos, Calif. native. He has spent the last 10 years running the offense for a NCAA Division I program with seven of those 10 years coming in the Big West.

Most recently at Tennessee, Bergeron has been on Dave Serrano's staff for the past 10 years. He was Serrano's Associate Head Coach at Tennessee from 2011-15 after spending the 2008-11 seasons on his staff at Cal State Fullerton and the 2005-07 seasons at UC Irvine. While at Tennessee, Bergeron directed the offense and helped lead the Vols to back-to-back SEC Tournament appearances for the first time in over a decade.


Mike Steele


Assistant Coach

Mike Steele returns for his second season with the Dirtbags in 2016. Steele came to Long Beach State with experience as a pitching coach on both the collegiate and professional levels and has worked in that same role on that Dirtbags' coaching staff.

During his first year in Long Beach, Steele guided Chris Mathewson to Big West Freshman Pitcher of the Year and Freshman All-American honors. The righty finished with a 1.94 ERA and held opposing batters to just a .184 batting average. On Mar. 1, Mathewson and Darren McCaughan combined to throw the first no-hitter in Dirtbags history.

Also under Steele's tutelage, senior Kyle Friedrichs emerged as an ace for the Dirtbags, striking out 109 batters over 100 innings with a 2.79 ERA. He was a semifinalist for the Gregg Olsen Award for college baseball's breakout player of the year and was drafted in the seventh round of the 2015 MLB Draft by the Oakland Athletics.


Zach Miller


Volunteer Assistant Coach

Miller returns to Long Beach State for the 2015 season as a volunteer assistant coach. The former catcher played two seasons with the Dirtbags, appearing five times in 2012 and making 24 appearances (including 21 starts) as a senior in 2013.

Before donning the black and gold, Miller played two seasons at his hometown Sacramento City College, making a pair of super regional appearances. He is a product of Elk Grove High School where he was a two-year letter winner in football and a four-year letter winner in baseball, helping Elk Grove to two section championships while setting the school record in doubles.
