Arizona wins 2012 College World Series!

The Wildcats (48-17) won their fourth national championship in June after winning 18 of their final 20 games, including a perfect 10-0 march through the postseason. Arizona hosted the NCAA Regional and Super Regional rounds in Tucson at Hi Corbett Field, a venue that led all West Coast schools in attendance throughout the season.

Arizona, which also won a share of the Pac-12 championship, captured its third national title since the conference became a 10-member league in 1978. No other Pac-12 school has won more than two championships in that span.

Andy Lopez

 

Head Coach: University of Arizona

A three-time national coach of the year, Andy Lopez enters his 12th season as the head coach at The University of Arizona. In his tenure, Lopez has reestablished Arizona as one of the nation's elite baseball programs, guiding the school to the 2012 NCAA National Championship, two College World Series appearances, and eight postseason berths in the last 10 seasons.

Lopez's resolute efforts to return the Wildcats to national prominence culminated in a sensational 2012 season. The Pac-12 co-champions, Arizona went a perfect 10-0 in the postseason, winning the Tucson Regional and Tucson Super Regionals en route to the school's 16th all-time College World Series, where the team never trailed in five contests and defeated two-time defending national champion South Carolina in the best-of-three championship series.

The title was Arizona's fourth as a program - first since 1986 - and marked Lopez's second career national championship. The Pac-12 Coach of the Year, Lopez also was named national coach of the year by Collegiate Baseball and the American Baseball Coaches Association.

One of 11 active head coaches with a national championship to his credit, Lopez became just the second NCAA Division I head coach to win a title at two schools (Arizona, Pepperdine). He is one of just three coaches to lead three different schools (Pepperdine, Florida and Arizona) to the College World Series. Further, he is one of just four coaches to take two schools to Omaha on multiple occasions (Arizona, Florida).

Shaun Cole

 

Assistant Coach: University of Arizona

Shaun Cole, named the 2012 Collegiate Baseball National Pitching Coach of the Year, enters his fourth season as an assistant coach at Arizona after helping the Wildcats win their fourth national championship and a share of the Pac-12 title in 2012.

Cole, who previously served as the program's director of operations in 2009 before being named pitching coach, also assists in recruiting, team scheduling, travel coordination, and various other duties within the program.

In his three seasons as pitching coach, Cole has guided three of the school's most successful staffs. Wildcat pitchers have won 121 games, tossed 25 complete games and registered 1,324 strikeouts while walks have decreased over each of the last three seasons. With a 3.57 earned run average in 2011 and a 3.70 ERA in 2012, Cole's last two staffs have turned in the lowest season totals at the school since 1978.

In 2012, Cole developed the Wildcats' staff into one of the best in the nation. Led by ace Kurt Heyer, who finished as the national leader with 13 victories, Arizona's starting rotation was rounded out by 11-game winner Konner Wade and eight-game winner James Farris, and not one of the three ever missed a start.

Matt Siegel

 

Assistant Coach: University of Arizona

Matt Siegel is in his second season as a member of the Arizona coaching staff, where he works with the hitters, infielders and serves as the third base coach during games. Siegel also is heavily involved in recruiting and various other key responsibilities within the program.

In 2012, Siegel coached arguably the best hitting lineup in the nation as the Wildcats won a share of the Pac-12 title and captured the national championship. Arizona led all 291 Division I teams with 756 hits on the season and ranked second with 478 runs scored. The Wildcats .329 batting average was fourth nationally and the highest single season average at the school in 12 years.

Under the guidance of Siegel, the Wildcats finished atop most all of the Pac-12 offensive statistical categories. Arizona led all conference teams in batting, slugging, on-base percentage, hits, runs scored, runs batted in, doubles and triples. The Wildcats also led in stolen bases, sacrifice flies and ranked third in both sacrifice bunts and walks. Individually, Johnny Field was crowned as the league's batting champion.

The 2012 Wildcats were lauded for their defensive prowess, a factor that keyed their run to a national title. Shortstop Alex Mejia was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and was an integral part of the UA infield that turned 57 double plays on the season, 24th-most in the nation. Over their final 20 games, the Wildcats went 18-2 and boasted an impressive .983 fielding percentage, committing 27 fewer errors than their opponents in that span.

Josh Garcia

 

Assistant Coach: University of Arizona

Josh Garcia enters his second season as a member of the Arizona coaching staff and his first as the volunteer assistant coach. Garcia's primary responsibilities include working with the team's outfielders, hitters, coaching first base, scouting and coordinating the Andy Lopez Baseball Academy camps.

In 2012, Garcia joined the coaching as an undergraduate assistant following two successful seasons as a first baseman and designated hitter. Garcia was a vital part of the coaching staff that helped guide the Wildcats to their fourth national championship and a share of the Pac-12 Conference title.

Garcia served as the team's bench coach during games and he worked closely with UA's corner infielders throughout the season. Along with his in-game duties where he helped manage defensive substitutions and pinch hitters, Garcia also was an integral part of the coaching staff in preparing opposing scouting reports and he fulfilled various other responsibilities on a daily basis.

In his two-year playing career as a Wildcat, Garcia played in 65 games and made 47 starts. He hit .259 with 11 home runs, 31 runs scored and 43 runs batted in. As a senior in 2011, Garcia belted a team-leading eight homers and was a clutch option off the bench when used a pinch-hitter, as he went 6-for-8 in the season.
