Ed Sprague

 

Head Coach: University of the Pacific

Head Coach Ed Sprague enters his 11th season at the helm of the Pacific Baseball program in the spring of 2014. The Stockton native took over the hometown program after an 11-year Major League career, and has guided the Tigers to 210 wins. In 2005 and 2006, his Tigers posted back-to-back seasons with 30 or more wins for the first time in program history. In 2010, the Tigers set a school record for wins in a season with 31 and received votes in the national polls.

He has a combined 210-342 record in his 10 seasons with the Tigers, posting a pair of 30 win seasons at 30-25 in 2006 and a 30-28 mark in 2005. He guided Pacific to one of the best seasons in program history in 2010, finishing with a 31-23 overall record that included a new program record of 31 victories over Division I opponents. That season Pacific won nine of its 14 series, including sweeping San Jose State from March 26-28. The Tigers also received votes in national top 30 polls on four occasions during the 2010 season.

During his tenure, 17 of his players have been selected in the Major League Baseball Draft, with seven players currently active in the professional ranks, including major leaguer (Chase Headley, San Diego Padres).

In the 2009 season, Sprague helped steer Pacific in the right direction of another winning season, laying the foundations for 2010 after recording victories over No. 8 Baylor, No. 11 San Diego, No. 16 Cal Poly and a series victory at No. 6 Cal State Fullerton in March. The series victory against Cal State Fullerton marked the first time one of Sprague's teams defeated the Titans in his career. Pacific finished with nine conference wins in 2009, tying the mark set in both the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Mike McCormick

 

Assistant Coach: University of the Pacific

McCormick enters his sixth season with the Tigers in 2014, and his fourth as pitching coach.

A mechanics guru, he helped Pacific place two pitchers in the top of the leader boards in innings pitched in 2011. In 2010, Tigers' All-Big West relief pitcher Hunter Carnevale was selected by the New York Mets in the MLB Draft, and posted a 1.08 ERA for Class A Brooklyn in 2011.

Prior to joining the Tigers' coaching staff, McCormick served as a volunteer assistant coach for the Sacramento State baseball program during the 2008 season. With the Hornets, McCormick was primarily responsible for coaching catchers and working with hitters, practice drills and general recruiting.

McCormick spent eight seasons over two stints as an assistant coach at Chico State, serving as the recruiting coordinator from 2005-07, the hitting coach in 2004 and a volunteer assistant from 1998 to 2001. One of the highlights of his time with Chico State was the 1999 team that went on to win a Division II national championship. During his eight seasons at Chico State, McCormick helped guide the Wildcats to five appearances in the Division II College World Series, including a second place finish in 2006.

Joey Centanni

 

Assistant Coach: University of the Pacific

Returning to his alma mater after five years, Joey Centanni was named the Tigers' newest assistant coach in July of 2014.

Centanni spent four seasons playing for the Tigers as an all-around talent as he starred as the Tigers' ace on the pitching staff, designated hitter, outfielder and first baseman. He earned two All-Big West selections throughout his career including second team honors as a utility player as a senior in 2009. Upon his graduation with a degree in communications, Centanni earned a free-agent contract with the Baltimore Orioles organization in which he played for two seasons.

After his playing days ended due to injury, Centanni immediately began his coaching career. He spent his first year assisting at Francis Parker High school. The following season he was named the head varsity baseball coach at The Bishop's School in his hometown of San Diego. In one season, Centanni was able to turn a struggling program into a playoff team as the Knights earned a home playoff game for the first time in years.

In addition to coaching the Knights, Centanni also worked as an associate scout for the Orioles in the San Diego Area. As a part of the Orioles, Centanni spent time recruiting a number of high school athletes to play for the Fall scout ball program.

Pat Jacquez

 

Assistant Coach: University of the Pacific

Jacquez joined the Tigers' coaching staff in November of 2012 and enters his second season as Pacific's volunteer assistant coach.

In November of 2013, Pat was honored with an induction into the Stockton Athletic Hall of Fame for his abilities both on and off the field as well as his work in the Stockton community.

Prior to Pacific, Pat pitched professionally for six years and has served as St. Mary's High School pitching coach.

Jacquez was drafted out of Stagg High School in 1965 (where he was a teammate of current Stanford head coach Mark Marquess) by the Houston Colt 45s (now Astros). He did not sign and instead went to Santa Clara on full scholarship, where he posted a 5-1 record and a 0.78 ERA as a freshman, earning First Team All-California Intercollegiate Baseball Association honors.
