Back-to-Back Region Coach of the Year

STANFORD, Calif. – Having guided Stanford back to Omaha for the third consecutive season, Clarke and Elizabeth Nelson Director of Baseball David Esquer has been named ABCA West Region Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season.

Esquer, the 2023 Pac-12 Coach of the Year, guided Stanford to a 44-20 overall record and a 23-7 mark in the Pac-12 en route to an appearance in the 2023 College World Series – the 19th in program history and third under his command.

The Cardinal also claimed the Pac-12 regular season title for the second consecutive season and third time with Esquer at the helm (2018, 2022-23).

Through six seasons at Stanford, Esquer has compiled a 226-92 overall record to post a .711 winning percentage – the highest percentage of any coach in Stanford baseball history. Having completed his 24th season as a Division I head coach, Esquer carries a 751-559-2 career record.

Including a selection in each of the last two seasons, the region coach of the year honor is the third for Esquer after winning the award in 2011 while at California. He would ultimately be named National Coach of the Year according to NCBWA that same season.

The 2023 ABCA/ATEC National Coaches of the Year in all divisions will be announced Wednesday, June 28.
