His teams posted single-season records for batting average, slugging percentage, at-bats, runs scored, hits, runs batted in (RBI), doubles, triples, home runs, total bases, stolen bases, fielding percentage, winning percentage, saves, consecutive wins and fewest losses. During Posner’s tenure he coached 12 NFCA Academic All-Americas, five All-Region selections, 19 All-Conference selections and 26 Academic All-Conference honorees. Welcome, Coach Posner!
