New baseball coach Rusty Filter ready to awaken sleeping giant.

In eight years helping coach at Stanford, Rusty Filter closely watched Santa Clara baseball. “It’s a sleeping giant, ready to make the next step,” he says. Filter comes to Santa Clara as head coach with five NCAA tournament appearances under his belt.He coached under Jim Dietz and Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn at San Diego State and Mark Marquess, the fourth-winningest coach in NCAA history, at Stanford. Filter has made his biggest impact developing pitchers, mentoring two pitchers who went on to be selected No. 1 overall in the MLB Draft.

And just weeks into the season, Filter has this sleeping giant wide awake. The Broncos are 14-7 thus far, already eclipsing their win total from last season.
