Some more background on Coach Filter.

Developed Strasburg at SDSU, Mark Appel at Stanford (both of whom, I think, pitched against SCU at some point), as well as numerous others.

Pitching seems key at the collegiate level (obviously it’s important at all levels)- feels a bit like having talented bigs in basketball- every team has guards, good teams have good bigs. Same with position players versus pitchers in college baseball. 

Santa Clara has a long history in baseball, a beautiful stadium, and great weather. No reason not to be competitive- as they long were.

Best of luck to Coach Filter.

Question: With Coach Marquess retiring, why didn’t Filter get the Stanford job?

they nabbed the Cal HC a Stanford Alum with deep Stanford ties…. I guess having some HC experience would be a big boost to lead a high profile program like Stanford… but I bet Filter was considered.

If he has a good run at SCU and Esquer falters, he may will end up with the Stanford job someday.
