The San Jose State Spartans baseball team is a varsity intercollegiate athletic team of San Jose State University in San Jose, California, USA.[1] The team is a member of the Mountain West Conference, which is part of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division I. San Jose State's first baseball team was fielded in 1911. The team plays its home games at San Jose Municipal Stadium in San Jose, California. The Spartans are coached by Dave Nakama. The team also plays select home games at Blethen Field, located on south campus.[2] There are plans of the Spartans building a new baseball stadium, which would be located on San Jose State's south campus. This would of course allow them to not have to borrow Municipal Stadium any longer, and be a lot more independent.

History[edit]

≤Making it to Omaha≥ Under the rule of head coach Sam Piraro in 2000. The eight teams who accompanied them in Omaha were Clemson, Florida State, Louisiana State, Stanford, Texas, Louisiana-Lafayette, and the University of Southern California.[3] However, San Jose State was eliminated after the first round of the tournament by the number four seed, the Clemson Tigers.[3]

Year-by-year results[edit]
