LUNCHEON - With Special Guest, TCU Baseball Coach, JIM SCHLOSSNAGLE

On July 9, 2003, a new era in TCU baseball began as Jim Schlossnagle became just the program's ninth coach since 1940. He became TCU's all-time winningest coach with a 5-0 win over Loyola Marymount on Feb. 21, surpassing the legendary TCU head coach Lance Brown. Over the course of his 13 seasons at the helm, he has posted the top 12 win totals in school history. He is 565-254 (.689) as the head coach at TCU and 642-301 (.680) in 15 years as a head coach. During his tenure at TCU, Schlossnagle has raised the program to new heights. His efforts have not gone unnoticed at the national level and in the fall of 2012 USA Baseball tabbed him the 2013 Collegiate National Team head coach. It marked his second stint with the national team as he served as an assistant coach in 2006. Twice he has been named the National Coach of the Year, earning the honor from the NCBWA in 2010, as well as being selected by Baseball America as the 2016 National Coach of the Year.

Jim Sundberg currently serves as the DFW FCA Board Chairman. He is also a Texas Rangers Hall of Famer who is known as one of the top defensive catchers in Major League history. He won six Gold Glove awards and was a three-time American League All-Star during his 16-year major league career with the Rangers, Milwaukee, Kansas City and the Chicago Cubs. Jim was a member of the 1985 World Champion Kansas City Royals and voted by the Chicago writers as the World Series Hero.

Between his playing days and re-joining the Rangers, Jim was an analyst on Rangers' television games from 1990-95 with Steve Busby and recognized in 1995 by a Dallas publication as the best professional broadcast team in the DFW sports arena. Jim also started a company manufacturing sports training products selling nationwide and co-wrote the book How to Win at Sports Parenting with his wife, Janet. He has continued to conduct motivational speeches since the late 70’s.

During Jim’s thirteen years in the front office with the Rangers he was responsible for many elements but most obvious were pertaining to the culture and brand of the Texas Rangers club. Primary to this role was brokering Nolan Ryan back to the organization as President from 2008 to 2013, where the club experienced two World Series berths as the American League Champions in ’10 & ’11 and attendance numbers that pushed through to a new record of 3.4M fans. The other noted branding element was shifting the look of the uniform and merchandise from Rangers brand toward TEXAS brand, worn today by players and sold in gift shops.During Jim’s tenure as the President of the Texas Rangers Foundation gifting went from $1.5M to just under $3M.

In July of 2014, Sundberg stepped down from his role as Senior Executive VP for the Texas Rangers and President of the Rangers Baseball Foundation, devoting more time to writing and speaking.

Jimsundberg.com has recently been launched to challenge his energy toward discussing his expertise across several venues. Days in the Dirt TM emerged out of the ground swell of information from a 35-year career in MLB, lived as a player, broadcaster, coach and front office executive. What it looks like to roll up your sleeves and get serious about directing your passions toward the right pathway.
