"Tag's knowledge of the game and his work ethic are unparalleled in college baseball. With the addition of Tag as a hitting coach, we have seen all of our hitters hit for more power without sacrificing on-base percentage. At least three previously undrafted position players are expected to be selected in this June's Major League Draft." - Head Coach Tom Walter
