The contest which pits Team USA against The World, will take place on Sunday, July 10 at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona to kick off the MLB All-Star festivities. The contest will be televised live on ESPN2 and MLB.com at 6:00 Eastern Time on July 10.

Joe Godri

 

Head Coach

Over the past nine years since becoming the head coach of the Villanova baseball program, Joe Godri has built a team that is consistently among the best in the Northeast region. He owns a career record of 240-227-3 (.514) and has led the Wildcats to an average of more than 26 victories per season. In addition, the team has posted a record of .500 or better seven times in his nine years as head coach, including a 29-23 mark during the 2010 campaign.

The season that just ended was a promising one for Villanova, which fielded an exceptionally young team for the second straight year. The youth movement continued to be a positive one for the Wildcats and the squad registered a number of milestones. Villanova registered the highest batting average (.303), lowest ERA (4.37) and best fielding percentage (.975) of Godri's tenure. Meanwhile, the Wildcats continued to mold future professional players and four players were chosen after the season in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. That number was also a new high since Godri has been head coach.

Rod Johnson

 

Assistant Coach

Rod Johnson is in his 10th season at Villanova and his fourth year as Joe Godri's senior assistant coach. Johnson works with the team's defense and is also the third base coach.

Villanova has developed into one of the top defensive teams in the BIG EAST Conference under Johnson's tutelage and the 2010 season was the team's best in the field during his time with the program. The Wildcats finished the year with a .975 fielding percentage, marking the second straight year with a mark of .970 or better and the sixth time in the last seven years that the team has achieved a fielding percentage of .960 or better. In 52 games during the 2010 season Villanova committed zero or one errors on 40 occasions, turned 58 double plays and finished second in the BIG EAST Conference in fielding percentage.

Derek Shunk

 

Assistant Coach

One of the most recognizable names in recent Villanova history returns to the program for his first year as an assistant coach. Derek Shunk joins the coaching staff as the Wildcats hitting coach and recruiting coordinator for the 2013 season.

Shunk is a 2008 graduate from Villanova and holds three school records while ranking in the top-10 in school history in eight different offensive categories. Shunk is one of just two players in Wildcats history to be a three-time All-BIG EAST selection.

During an incredible collegiate career Shunk broke long-standing Villanova records for games played (216), at-bats (831) and hits (291). He broke the all-time hits record midway through his senior season and his final tally of 291 hits is 49 more than any other player to come through the program. Shunk also ranks fourth in school history in total bases, sixth in walks, runs scored and runs batted in, as well as tied for eighth in doubles.

Kevin Mulvey

 

Graduate Assistant Coach

Kevin Mulvey begins his first season as a member of the Villanova coaching staff after a successful professional player which included stints in the Major Leagues with two different teams. Mulvey was one of the top pitchers in Wildcats history during his collegiate playing career and he will be involved in all aspects of the program in his first year in a coaching role.

Mulvey pitched three years for Villanova and at the end of his junior season was the top draft pick of the New York Mets in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. A second round selection and the 62nd overall pick in the 2006 draft, Mulvey became the first Wildcats player ever selected with a major league team's first pick.

In parts of seven seasons playing in the professional ranks Mulvey spent time in the organizations of the Mets, Minnesota Twins and Arizona Diamondbacks. He reached the Major Leagues with both the Twins and Diamondbacks, logging 10 appearances and starting four games. In the minor leagues Mulvey pitched in 143 games with 140 starts and won 35 games while pitching more than 750 innings and striking out 547 batters.
