ERIK WAGLE: PRESIDENT/EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF DUB FOUNDATION

ERIK WAGLE

Erik Wagle founded Dub Baseball in August of 2012 to provide a much needed service to his native area.  With a focus on development and service, Wagle has established the core values of Dub Baseball from the start and will continue to ensure that all Dub Baseball participants will have a great experience in the program.  Wagle brings a wealth of experience from collegiate and professional baseball to the youth players in the South Bay Area.  Wagle has sent over 50 players to college baseball,coached numerous college All Americans, and has mentored/advanced nearly 20 players to professional baseball.  

Wagle has served as an Associate Scout for the Washington Nationals.  Wagle was with the Nationals for six seasons after serving in the same role for the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Wagle was responsible for junior college evaluations in the Bay Area and high school evaluations for all players in the San Jose metropolitan area.  Wagle also assisted with various showcases and professional coverage.  

Wagle was also the commissioner of the Far West Collegiate Summer League for two years, one of the most prestigious collegiate summer leagues in the country.  Wagle was hired in March of 2012 to revive the unstable league.  He quickly turned the league around and the Far West League was ranked as one of the top 20 collegiate summer leagues in the nation in August 2012 by Perfect Game.  The Far West League features some of the most talented collegiate players in the country that come from some of the best universities in the nation

 Wagle coached at California State University Monterey Bay for two seasons before returning home to start Dub Baseball.  While at CSUMB, Wagle helped build the dormant program from the worst ranked team in Division II in 2010, to a university first national ranking in the 2012 season, completing a dramatic turnaround of the program in a very short amount of time.  At CSUMB, Wagle was responsible for pitching, strength/conditioning, recruiting, academics, fundraising, and NCAA compliance.  Wagle quickly turned around a pitching staff that had an 8.95 ERA in the 2010 season, to one that ranked at the top of the conference in all categories during his tenure.  Each of Wagle’s pitching staffs broke the school record for ERA and Opponents Batting Average during his two seasons with the Otters.  Wagle’s recruiting efforts were also a main reason for the dramatic turnaround of the CSUMB program.  Wagle signed 25 players to Letters of Intent in his first recruiting class and signed more than 30 players in his two years as Recruiting Coordinator.  Wagle’s impact was also felt in the classroom, as the CSUMB Baseball team sported the highest male sports Grade Point Average at CSUMB during his two years.  The CSUMB program continued to reap Wagle’s benefits after his departure, as several of his recruits were drafted into professional baseball. 

 Before heading to CSUMB, Wagle was the Associate Head Coach at San Jose City College for two seasons.  While at San Jose City, the Jaguars experienced the two most successful seasons in school history by going to the State Super Regional Playoffs both years, one of only six teams in the state to accomplish the feat during that time span.  SJCC also led the Golden Gate Conference in wins during Wagle’s tenure.  Wagle was responsible for all aspects of the San Jose City program, including pitching, recruiting, strength/conditioning, academics, and fundraising.  Both of SJCC’s record-breaking teams were led by a high-powered pitching staff.  The 2009 staff broke the school record for ERA, while both staffs ranked in the top 10 in ERA in the State.  Every pitcher during Wagle’s tenure at SJCC signed a Division I or II scholarship.  Wagle also led SJCC Baseball’s academic program, and the squad sported the highest male sports Grade Point Average in the college.  100% of San Jose City baseball players transferred to 4-year universities during Wagle’s tenure, the highest mark in the State.  

 Wagle started his career coaching in his hometown at his alma mater, Live Oak High School.  During his five seasons at Live Oak, the Acorns won three league championships, including the program’s first Central Coast Section championship in 2008, Wagle’s final season at Live Oak.  At Live Oak, Wagle was responsible for pitching, strength/conditioning, and fundraising.  Wagle’s 2008 pitching staff broke the school record for ERA with a 2.08 mark.  

 Wagle is a published author and journalist.  He also wrote on a popular national blog, collegebaseballlineup.com, during his collegiate coaching career. 

 Wagle’s playing career started at Live Oak High School, where he was an All Monterey Bay League player.  Wagle moved on to San Jose City College, where he was a JC All American in his sophomore season, leading the nation in Saves and setting the school record in the same category.  Wagle signed a scholarship with Division 1 UC Riverside before playing his final two seasons at Division II power Sonoma State.  

Wagle has a Masters degree from Saint Mary’s College in Health and Physical Education, a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Sonoma State, and teaching credentials in Physical Education and Social Sciences.  Wagle has served as a Professor in the Kinesiology Department at CSUMB and was a Physical Education Instructor while at SJCC.
