The Fighting Irish are entering year two under Head Coach Shawn Stiffler coming off of an incredible Cinderella run in year one. The Irish baseball team made it to round two of the College World Series, but fell short against Texas A&M who would go on to lose to the runner up of the National Champion, Oklahoma. There's a lot to look forward to this upcoming season including an impressive recruiting class with a very tough schedule that allows the Irish to truly prove themselves.

Coach Stiffler and crew managed to bring in and sign the 27th ranked recruiting class, and the top ranked class in all of the Midwestern region. This 2024 class is the second highest rated class in program history, only trailing 2021's class. Safe to say expect some fireworks this season and potentially another deep run in the postseason.
