Giarratano Tops Baseball Wins List


Nino Giarratano is the University of San Francisco’s winningest head baseball coach, moving him into sixth place on the West Coast Conference career victories list.

Giarratano surpassed celebrated head coach Dante Benedetti with the most victories on March 2, notching his 374th win. The Dons clinched the game in a dramatic 10-inning contest, beating the California State University, Northridge Matadors 6-5 at the Aztec Invitational in San Diego. Giarratano is in his 14th season with the Dons.

“It’s a great feeling and it’s an honor to be mentioned in the same breath as Dante Benedetti,” Giarratano said. “I'm proud of the players that have played for me and of all the people that have helped build the program along the way."
