Gopher Baseball Set to Host Pro-Alumni Game

Gopher Alums Ready for 18th Annual Event, Feb. 4

Robb Quinlan returns for his second season as the volunteer assistant coach for the Gopher baseball program. Joining the coaching staff in May 2011, Quinlan is here for his first full season in 2012 and will serve as the Gophers' hitting coach.

Coming off of a successful eight-year stint in Major League Baseball, Quinlan was with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim his entire professional career. He was drafted by the Angels in the 10th round of the 1999 amateur draft. In that span, Quinlan played in 458 games and held a career .276 batting average. In the 2006 season, Quinlan had his best season, as he batted .321 average. He also had 32 RBI and nine home runs in 234 at bats.

One of the Minnesota's best hitters to come through the Gopher program, Quinlan was a three-time All-American and named the 1999 Big Ten Player of the Year. Quinlan remains at the top of the career batting record in nearly every category. He still holds school records in at bats (906), hits (345), doubles (79), home runs (55), total bases (617), runs scored (249) and RBI (230).

In the fall of 2011, Quinlan became the 28th Gopher baseball player to be inducted into the M Club Hall of Fame. His induction also marked the youngest Gopher baseball player awarded the honor.

He currently lives in Plymouth with his wife Amanda.
