Head Coach: UNC Wilmington
Season number 22 for UNCW head coach Mark Scalf was a special one for the long-time Seahawk. His club won its eighth regular season title, earned an at-large berth to the NCAA tournament and helped him pass the 700-career wins mark.
In 2013, UNCW posted a 38-23 overall record and topped the CAA with an 18-8 mark. Eight Seahawks earned All-Colonial Athletic Association honors and Michael Bass earned five All-America honors. The season was highlighted by a 9-8 win in Chapel Hill, N.C., over top-ranked North Carolina.
In CAA play, Scalf moved to the top of the league with 298 career wins against conference foes. For his efforts, Scalf was honored by the league's coaches as Co-Coach-of-the-Year honors for the sixth time, tying the conference record.
In the MLB draft, pitcher Justin Livengood and Bass, an infielder, were both selected by the San Diego Padres in the 10th and 27th rounds, respectively.

UNCW continued to be an offensive leader in the CAA, and nationally, in Hood's 11th season with the program. The Seahawks ranked in the nation's top-30 in eight categories, including batting average (22nd), runs (27th), hits (12th), doubles (23rd), home runs (11th) and stolen bases (12th).
The 2012 Seahawks also proved to be one of the program's top offensive clubs in the program's history as they ranked fourth all-time in hits, fifth in batting average and total bases, seventh in home runs and eighth in doubles.
With 105 stolen bases, the Seahawks passed the 100-mark for the first time since 2006. UNCW was successful in 78.4% of its attempts, also ranking in UNCW's top-10 all-time. Andrew Cain, who was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 24th round, and Michael Bass led the way with 23 and 20 stolen bases, respectively, while UNCW had five players steal at least 10 bases in 2012.
