Doug Schreiber '86

Doug Schreiber ', who completed his 14th year as head baseball coach for the Boilermakers, had a season for the record books. Starting back in April when Doug passed Dave Alexander as Purdue baseball’s all-time leader in victories with 408. He ended the season with 425 wins.


The Boilers 45-12 record this season was the most victories for a team in Purdue history. The strong Purdue play earned the team a Top 20 ranking and allowed them to host the first ever NCAA tournament regional.


The Purdue team also captured its first Big Ten Conference championship since 1909 as well as finishing first in the Big Ten Conference Tournament. This outstanding season earned Doug Big Ten Coach of the Year honors. Boilermaker players also took home Pitcher of the Year and Player of the Year recognition.


Doug who played second base for the Purdue baseball team from 1983 to 1986 couldn’t be prouder of the team’s success. And all the brothers couldn’t be prouder of Brother Schreiber.
