UMass – Dartmouth
In 10 seasons at the helm of the baseball program, Bob Prince has created a winning culture that has restored UMass Dartmouth to its contender status in the strongest conference in Division III. Prince has compiled an overall record of 186-178 (.511), including four 20-win seasons and three appearances in the finals of the Little East Conference Baseball Championship.
Prince was named head coach at UMass Dartmouth in August 2011, succeeding Bob Curran. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Prince is the athletic facilities coordinator.
In just his second season, Prince brought the Corsairs to the cusp of an NCAA Division III tournament appearance. Seeded fifth in the conference tournament, UMass Dartmouth rebounded from a first round loss with three consecutive wins—knocking out Western Connecticut, UMass Boston, and Eastern Connecticut—to advance to the 2013 Little East Conference Baseball Championship Game. The Corsairs gave top-seeded Southern Maine all they could handle, but their upset bid was eventually thwarted. UMass Dartmouth finished the 2013 season with an overall record of 18-23, a four-win improvement from 2012.
A tremendous motivator and recruiter, Prince has mentored eight all-conference honorees.
Prior to joining UMass Dartmouth, Prince served as an assistant coach at Southern Maine since 2004. He helped the Huskies compile an overall record of 231-122-2, three NCAA Division III tournament appearances, two Little East Conference regular-season titles, and three 30-win seasons.
