I’m excited to be joined today by Coach Jim Schlossnagle, Head Baseball Coach at Texas A&M.
In his first season at the helm of a new program, he lead the Aggies to the 2022 College World Series, winning A&M’s first games in Omaha since 1993 and earning the SEC Western Division title — the most competitive division in baseball.
Schlossnagle is just the fourth coach to win multiple College World Series games at different programs as the head coach.
Before arriving at Texas A&M, Schlossnagle spent 18 years at TCU. He guided the Horned Frogs to five College World Series, making their Omaha debut in 2010 and adding four consecutive CWS trips from 2014-17.
The Schlossnagle coaching tree has been extremely fruitful. Eight current NCAA Division I baseball coaches sharpened their craft under the tutelage of Schlossnagle.
