• College Athlete Advantage

Meet Saul Hardin - Regional Advisor

I have been coaching baseball for over 20 years and currently in my third year as Director of Athletics and PE Teacher at Pacific Christian Academy in Federal Way, Washington. I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree with a major in journalism and a minor in coaching at Central Washington University in 2002. What I appreciate about sports and coaching, and those relationships, is when I see a young athlete who is committed to development and learning what it is to be a teammate and all the life skills acquired in athletic participation, and grow into their purpose for life.

I live in Pacific, WA with my wife of seven years, Michaela. We have a blended family of 7 children (age range from baby due 7/2021 to 17). We are members of Motion Church in Bonney Lake, serve in the Connect ministry and lead a blended family small group.

Baseball playing experience: Little league ages 6-9, select baseball with Triple Play Baseball Club from age 10-18 (1988-1996, winning three Amateur World Series Baseball Championships in 1991, 1992, 1994), Lindbergh HS (Renton) winning two state titles in 1994 and 1995. I also played college baseball at Bellevue Community College (1997), University of LaVerne (1998) and Central Washington University (2000-2001), PSSBL Men’s league (1998-2009), and Redmond Wood Bat Men’s League (2010-2012).

Baseball coaching experience: Triple Play Baseball Club (1996-2011, winning seven Amateur World Series Baseball Championships in 1998, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2009), Central Washington University (2002), Skagit Valley Community College (2003, 2004), Bellevue Community College (2005), Decatur HS JV Head Coach and Tacoma Tigers (2014), Seattle Christian HS Varsity Head Coach (2015, 2016), Emerald Ridge HS Varsity Fast Pitch Head Coach (2018). I’ve also coached my son’s Little League teams that were 5-8 years old as well as various camps and clinics for other organizations like Grand Slam USA, etc.
