Coming off of a successful first year under new head coach Dan O'Brien and his staff, Santa Clara baseball looks to continue to make strides on the field in 2013. Last year, the Broncos improved by an impressive nine games, going from 17 wins to 26. It was the most wins any of the seniors had experienced and the most since the team won 33 in 2008.

"Year one was pretty crazy," said O'Brien. "When I look back at all that was accomplished in such a short period of time, I feel great about our foundation and the future of the program. The biggest difference this year has been the transition from people getting to know us to fully supporting us. Everyone was supportive last year, but now I feel like they're 'on board.'  It's an amazing feeling when people all around you are asking how they can help.

Find Your Nature
By Ryan Leake, Assistant Baseball Coach 

In ancient Tibet, three beggars were talking.  One said, "I wish I were the governor. He's the richest man in the town.  Then I could live in comfort, and everyone would respect me."

"Why do you play baseball?"  Simple question right?  Perhaps...

"I love hitting!"  Very original.  Do you love it when you're O-fer your last fifteen?

"I love pitching!"  Great champ.  What about when you haven't pitched in two weeks?

"I love how pretty the field is!" Fan-freakin'-tastic...landscape architecture is a fascinating area of study .

"I can't imagine playing in anything but those faaaabulous baggy uniforms."  Oh right, because the game changes if you were playing in jeans and a t-shirt.  Tell it to the Caribbean Islanders dude...
