Tristan Toorie

Camp Coordinator/Defensive Coordinator

 

Tristan Toorie joined the EKU baseball program in the summer of 2016. Toorie came from Presbyterian College where he coached the hitters and catchers, oversaw base running and coached first base.

Throughout his career Toorie has coached 27 players that have gone on to continue their career into professional baseball.

At EKU Toorie will serve as defensive coordinator, coach outfielders and hitters, while also assisting in the team’s recruiting efforts

During his time at Presbyterian, Toorie helped turn a team that batted .246 with 11 home runs in 2014 into a team that hit .290 with 25 home runs in 2015. He also helped the team set a new program record with 27 wins. Toorie tutored PC’s first, first team all-conference catcher in school history.

 

Under Toorie’s guidance, Weston Jackson earned All-America honors and finished second in the nation in doubles.

“I am excited to add Tristan to our program, he is a first class person who has a passion and energy for teaching the game the right way,” EKU Head Coach Edwin Thompson said. “He brings experience as a hitting coach at the Division I level and helped PC set a school record in wins at the D-I level in 2016. Having played and worked in professional baseball, along with helping 27 of his former players move on to play professional baseball, he will enhance our players and help them reach their goals to move on the next level. He is a person of great character, has a great skill set and a proven record of developing players.”

In two seasons with the Augusta GreenJackets, part of the San Francisco Giants organization, Toorie assisted with pre-game activities, including batting practice, and also worked daily with the athletic training staff in addition to the strength and conditioning staff.

Toorie, a graduate of Augusta State University, has been coaching since 2013, starting off with the St. Cloud Rox in the Northwoods League. With the Rox he worked as a first base coach, strength & conditioning coach, third base coach and hitting instructor. He joined the Presbyterian staff in August 2014.
