Jason Gill enters his sixth year at the helm of the LMU baseball program in 2014. His incoming class for this season was tabbed as the 34th-best in the nation according to Collegiate Baseball. LMU was just one of four non-BCS schools to make the list, and just one of five private schools lauded. The class was also tied for the best in the West Coast Conference.
Bryant Ward begins his fifth season as an assistant coach with the Lions in 2015 after joining the LMU coaching staff in 2011 as the Recruiting Coordinator, Infield Coach, and Third Base Coach. This past season, Ward added the title of hitting coach to his duties. In Ward's first season as LMU's hitting coach, the Lions showed a substantial jump in all major offensive categories, including posting their highest team batting average in the BBCORE era and the third-best in the state of California for 2014. Ward's defense, highlighted by 2014 WCC Defensive Player of the Year David Fletcher, also put on quite the show in 2014, managing a .973 fielding percentage (second in the WCC) and 53 double plays turned to lead the WCC and state of California.
Dan Ricabal, who spent six years serving as a pitching coach at various levels in the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim organization prior to coming to LMU, is in his third season as LMU's pitching coach in 2014. Ricabal, who was teammates with LMU head coach Jason Gill at Cal State Fullerton in 1994, saw the Lions finish with a 24-27 overall record in 2013, including a 12-12 mark in the WCC. His pitching staff finished the year with an LMU record 3.17 ERA, led by a trio of All-WCC selections in right-handers Colin Welmon, Aaron Griffin and Patrick McGrath (honorable mention).
Volunteer Assistant Coach
