|Title:||Assistant Coach - Hitters|
Eric Del Prado joined the Pioneers coaching staff in the summer of 2018 and will be on the bench coaching for the first time during the 2019 season.
A graduate of the Willamette baseball team, Del Prado competed over four years for the Bearcats and was a .302 career hitter with over 120 RBI. Following his senior season, he was selected Willamette's men's selection for Northwest Conference Scholar-Athlete First Team, an award based on athletic success, academic accomplishments and community service. On the field, Del Prado brought in 54 runs, a career high, and ranked third in the NWC as a senior. He finished the season in the conference's top 30 in average, top 10 in home runs and was named All-NWC Honorable Mention.
