USC Trojans baseball

The University of Southern California Trojans baseball program, established in 1888, is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Pacific Ten Conference, and is currently coached by Chad Kreuter.

USC Trojans Baseball has a notable history in baseball: With 12 baseball national championships, Troy is far and away the leader in that category (no other school has more than 6). Since starting baseball in 1924, the Trojans have compiled a record of 2,221-1,093-15 (.669) against college opponents, and have captured outright or tied for 38 conference championships. USC's most notable baseball coach was Rod Dedeaux, coaching from 1942-86, who led the school to 11 of its NCAA crowns, including 5 straight from 1970-74.

They play at Dedeaux Field in honor of former coach Rod Dedeaux. The 2007 USC baseball recruiting class has been rated No. 4 in the nation by Student Sports.

The first Trojan national championship came in 1948. The 12th and most recent title came in 1998.

In 2007, the USC Club Baseball (USCCB) team was established as a competitive alternative for varsity baseball athletes. Some players on this team have practiced with or tried out for the varsity team. USCCB continues to have a good relationship with the varsity team, and is fortunate to play games on Dedeaux Field and use former varsity uniforms.
