The Golden Grizzlies finished second in The Summit League standings
By winning 21 of the final 29 regular season games, the OU baseball team paced itself to a record-setting season in 2012. Summit League Coach of the Year John Muscachio led his team to a school-best 15-6 Summit League record and a second place finish in league play and took the team to The Summit League Championship for the second time in the past three years.
The success of this season will continue to pay dividends for OU, as the Golden Grizzlies earned the right to host the 2013 Summit League Baseball Championship.

Oakland Grizzlies Baseball
John Musachio just completed his eighth season overall and sixth as head baseball coach at Oakland University. Musachio was named The Summit League Coach of the Year in 2012, becoming the first-ever OU coach to earn that distinction.
Musachio has led the Golden Grizzlies to back-to-back school record seasons in Summit League play, winning 30 games over those two seasons. OU captured the No. 2 seed at The Summit League Baseball Championship in 2013, earning postseason play in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history. OU also served as the host of the league tournament for the first time.
The Golden Grizzlies had their finest season inside The Summit League in 2012. OU finished 15-6 and a half-game behind 13-time champion Oral Roberts. Oakland won 21 of its final 29 games en route to setting a new school record with 15 league wins. The 25 wins was the second-most in the Division I era, behind only the 28 wins in 2000.
Since Musachio took over the baseball program, the Golden Grizzlies have broken multiple school records and continue to make appearances in The Summit League tournament. Prior to 2008, Oakland had made a total of three appearances in the league tournament in eight seasons. Under Musachio's direction, the Grizzlies are coming off tournament appearances in 3-of-4 seasons, including back-to-back No. 2 seeds.
Ryan Hilton joins the Oakland baseball coaching staff for the 2013-14 season. His primary duties for the season will include catcher instruction and assisting with hitters.
Hilton joins Oakland after four years as the varsity coach at Braden River High School in Bradenton, Fla. where he won back-to-back district and league titles.
"We are very fortunate to have someone with Ryan's baseball experience on our staff," said Musachio. "He is a seasoned baseball man with a history of success as a coach."
Hilton spent four years as the varsity pitching coach at Troy High School from 2002-05. He also gained coaching experience at Canisius and D'Youville College in Buffalo, N.Y.
Jacke Healey joined the Oakland baseball staff as an assistant coach in the fall of 2013. Healey will be working primarily with the hitters and the infielders.
Healey spent one year at the University of Pitt where he was the infield coach and also worked with the offense. In 2013, Healey helped the Panthers win a school-record 42 games. The Pitt offense was one of the finest in the nation during the 2013 campaign as Pitt finished the year ranked seventh in scoring (7.5), fifth in runs (444), 18th in home runs per game (0.83) and home runs (49), 19th in slugging percentage (.448) and 14th in on-base percentage (.403).
Prior to Pitt, he was a standout at Youngstown State, which led to him being drafted by the Houston Astros in the 27th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft. In two seasons with the Tri-City ValleyCats, he hit eight home runs, three triples and 11 doubles, and helped guide the team to the 2011 league championship.
In two years at Youngstown State, Healey established himself as one of the program's all-time great infielders. He earned first team all-conference recognition at shortstop twice, becoming the first player in program history to accomplish that feat. He currently holds the Penguins' single-season records for home runs (12), RBI (59) and runs scored (63).
