Joe Godri

 

Villanova University baseball team has had just four head coaches in the past 67 years and only 10 full-time head coaches total in its century-and-a-half of existence. Joe Godri has a career record of 360 in 14 years as the Wildcats head coach. His teams tallied a record of .500 or better nine times and his winning seasons include two years with at least 30 wins and two appearances in the BIG EAST Championship. His 360 victories are the second-most in the history of the program.

Villanova has developed into one of the top baseball powers in the region under Godri’s watch. Wildcats have won over 200 games against non-conference competition which includes 150 Wins vs. opponents from the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The team’s success on the field has been justly rewarded. During Godri’s tenure, the Wildcats have had 28 All-BIG EAST selections and had three players named All-Americans. In addition, Villanova has had 32 selections to the Philadelphia Big Five team has won six Player of the Year or Pitcher of the Year awards during that span.

At least one Villanova pitcher has been selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft in 13 of the 14 seasons that Godri has been head coach, and the total number of draft picks from the Wildcats in that span is 24 after the selections. Villanova has had multiple draft picks nine times in the past 14 years and Godri has had five players chosen in the top eight rounds of the draft. Szczur was a fifth round pick of the Cubs in 2010 and was on this year’s World Series Team. He is the third player overall from Godri’s tenure to reach the major leagues and the first position player. Right-handed pitchers Brian Slocum (2006, 2008) and Kevin Mulvey (2009, 2010) also played in the major leagues after being high draft picks under Godri’s watch.  Villanova alumni have also gone on to have success playing internationally. The most recent in that group is Mike Loree, the Wildcats career innings pitched leader who spent parts of three seasons in Taiwan pitching for the Lamigo Monkeys. Loree had a great deal of success internationally after a minor league career in the Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates systems, in addition to a successful stint with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League. Other notable international players from the Wildcats include Mark Cardillo and Angelo Petracca (Italy), Bob Grzenda (Germany) and John Yeager (Mexico).

Godri’s success at Villanova has gained the notice of his peers and during the summer of 2006 he was named to the USA Baseball selection committee that chose the players for the collegiate National Team.

Following his first three years at Villanova, Godri was the head assistant coach at New Mexico State from 1994-97. While coaching at New Mexico State, two of his three recruiting classes were ranked in the top 40 by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. In addition, the Aggies were ranked in the top 25 for the first time in school history.

With his focus on hitting as a New Mexico State assistant, Godri helped the Aggies crack the top five in several NCAA offensive categories including hitting, runs scored, stolen bases and home runs. He also coached another future major leaguer in Jason Rackers, who would go on to play for the Kansas City Royals. While with the Aggies, Godri coached under current North Carolina State head coach Elliott Avent who was named National Coach of the Year in 2003.

After three seasons at New Mexico State, Godri spent one season as an associate scout for the Cleveland Indians. He then traveled to the University of Utah where he assisted with the pitching staff for two seasons.

Godri played his collegiate baseball at Colorado State and Chipola Junior College in Marianna, Fla. After finishing his degree as a graduate assistant at the University of Pittsburgh with his Bachelor’s Degree in Education, Godri went on to receive a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Management from New Mexico State.
