Steve Farley
Head Coach

19 Steve Farley "1-9"
Position: Head Coach
Profile: Coach Farley is the second most winning coach in Butler Baseball history, next to Tony Hinkle. He features Grade A "juicy" batting practice and also mixes in an occasional 12-6 curve ball. See what his friends say about him...

"Over the past six seasons, no other baseball program in the Midwestern Collegiate Conference has had as much success as the one built by Butler University head coach Steve Farley. The Bulldogs captured MCC regular season championships in 1996, 1998 and 1999 and conference tournament titles in 1998 and 2000. Farley was named MCC "Coach of the Year" in 1994, 1996, 1998 and 1999. In 1998, the Bulldogs flew to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to compete in the NCAA Play-In series against Oral Roberts University, and last year Butler captured the MCC’s automatic bid to the NCAA National Baseball Championship. The Bulldogs flew to Minneapolis, Minnesota, last May and competed against nationally-ranked Nebraska and Wichita State in the NCAA Regional Tournament at the University of Minnesota.

Farley is in his 11th season with the Bulldogs, and he’s turned a struggling program into a consistent winner. The Bulldogs have three winning seasons in the past four years and have recorded more than 30 wins in two of the past four years, including a school-record 33 wins in 1998. He’s had 38 players earn all-conference honors, and he’s had 12 players sign professional contracts.

Farley's success hasn’t been limited to a coaching setting. Thanks to his efforts in collecting donations from alumni and other benefactors, Bulldog Park has gone from an average playing facility to a top-notch baseball complex, one that will be the host of the Indiana North-South high school all-star series in 2001. Farley has also annually scheduled games for the Bulldogs in Victory Field, home of the Indianapolis Indians. And he has made Butler summer and winter baseball camps an annual success, with many Indianapolis-area little league and high school players attending his camps each year.

Program building wasn’t something new for Farley. After serving as a graduate assistant coach under the highly regarded Jerry Kindall at University of Arizona in 1983, he began a full-time coaching career as an assistant at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, N.Y. As the team’s pitching coach, he helped lower Army’s team earned run average to a school-record 3.99 in just two seasons.

Farley moved to Davis & Elkins College in 1988, inheriting a team that had finished last in the conference the previous two seasons. In 1990, he was named Coach of the Year in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference after leading Davis & Elkins to its first 20-win season in over a decade. In 1991, he guided the Senators to a division championship.

A high school all-state pitcher at River Falls, Wis., Farley earned a baseball scholarship to University of Minnesota, where he became a starting pitcher and three-year letterman. He helped lead the Golden Gophers to a Big Ten Championship and a berth to the NCAA tournament in 1981. Farley, recipient of the Williams Scholar-Student Athlete Award, earned a bachelor of science degree from Minnesota in 1981, and a master’s degree in physical education from University of Arizona in 1983.

In addition to his coaching duties, Farley has served as a director or instructor at several baseball camps, including the NCAA Youth Education through Sports (YES) clinics at the College World Series. He has also had several articles on baseball strategy and technique published in athletic journals.

Farley and his wife Lisa, an instructor in Butler’s physical education department, have two daughters, Hannah (7) and Sarah (4)."
