Head Coach Will Sanborn '86, who registered his 25th season at the helm for the Monks in 2017, has built one of the most consistently successful NCAA DIII programs in the country. As a testament to his growing legacy, Sanborn was inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Late in the 2014 season, Sanborn became the 44th coach in the history of NCAA DIII Baseball to reach the 600-victory plateau. During his 25 years as the Monks' skipper, Sanborn has accumulated a 686-364-5 (.653) record with 19 championships, including 13 conference crowns and five NAIA New England titles, and 22 winning seasons. Saint Joseph's has reached the 25-victory plateau in 18 of Sanborn's 25 years and posted 30 or more wins on 12 occasions.
The Monks have been particularly strong since the start of the 2005 season. Over the last 13 years, Saint Joseph’s has posted an incredible 405-167 (.708) overall record, including an otherworldly 152-30 (.835) mark versus conference foes. Over this 13-year span, St. Joe’s has made eight NCAA DIII Tournament appearances with an ECAC Tournament berth in 2005. In the New England Regional, the Monks have been seeded as high as #2 on a pair of occasions and have won 11 NCAA tourney games, including 10 over the past four appearances.
