BENEFITING: The Chadtough Foundation

EVENT: Dancing with the Michigan Stars

EVENT DATE: Mar 08, 2018

THE STORY:

"I am very motivated by Chad's story and have committed myself to being involved in the solution. The Michigan baseball team, several coaches and myself look forward to volunteering at The RunTough for ChadTough event every year. I am excited to be part of the Dancing with the Michigan Stars event and helping to raise more awareness and funds for research."


Erik Bakich was announced as the 19th head coach in the history of Michigan baseball on June 27, 2012 and completed his fifth season with the program in 2017. In his fifth year with the Maize and Blue, Bakich guided the Wolverines to a 42-17 record and a second place finish in the Big Ten Conference, leading Michigan to its 23rd NCAA Tournament appearance in program history and its first at-large berth since 2007. With 40 wins for the first time since 2008, the season was also highlighted by a program record eight All-Big Ten selections. The 2017 campaign also featured a 23-5 record at the Wilpon Complex, which marked the program’s best win percentage (.821) since the complex was dedicated in 2008 and helped to attract three of the top-ten largest crowds in program history. 


The impressive season culminated with the most Major League Baseball draft picks in the country and in Michigan history, as eleven players (Jaskie, Lugbauer, Brdar, Slater, Lozer, Ryan Nutof, Harrison Wenson, Bryan Pall, Jake Bivens, Michael Hendrickson, and Grant Reuss) were selected by and signed with their respective professional teams. In addition to on-field success, the campaign also featured six Academic All-Big Ten selections, one Big Ten Distinguished Scholar, and one CoSIDA Academic All-Region selection. 


Erik and his wife, Jiffy, have two sons, Colt and Beau and a daughter, Tempie.
