Rich Hill has built the USD Toreros into one of the most successful Division I baseball programs on the West Coast. The 2015 spring season will be Hill’s 29th year as a head coach at the collegiate level, and 18th at USD, having enjoyed 26 winning seasons in 29 years. Since taking over at USD in 1999, Hill has been remarkable in re-writing the school record book en route to claiming back-to-back West Coast Conference Championship titles in 2002 2003 and also claiming the WCC crown in 2007, 2008 and 2010.
Under his watchful leadership, USD has now produced three consecutive first round picks in Kris Bryant, Conner Joe and Kyle Holder. USD has had 40 players sign a pro contract in the last seven years, the Toreros have been ranked at some point during the season for 10 consecutive years, and USD has been tabbed the WCC preseason favorite for eight consecutive years (2007-14).
Hill once again found his team on top of the WCC standings in 2015, as San Diego posted an impressive 19-8 overall league record. Led by the WCC Player of the Year, Kyle Holder, WCC Pitcher of the Year, David Hill, and WCC Freshman of the Year, Bryson Brigman, San Diego was a dominate force to be reckoned with. USD was able to claim the WCC title in a three-game series against the defending champion Pepperdine Waves, which had one-year prior, defeated USD in a three-game series to claim the 2014 title from the Toreros. At season’s end, Holder was drafted in the first round of the MLB draft, marking the third consecutive year, USD had produced a first-round draft pick.
