Coach Andy Nieto hired as Damien's next Head Varsity Baseball Coach.

In addition to his coaching duties at Bishop Amat, Nieto was also the Physical Education Department Chairperson.

At Bishop Amat, Coach Nieto won four CIF Championships, the most recent of which was the culminating achievement of the 2014 season. Nieto also earned seven Del Rey League championships, which included six consecutive league titles from 2007-2012. Overall, Nieto’s record at Bishop Amat was an impressive 200-48-1.
In his ten years as an assistant coach at the University of Southern California, Nieto helped secure three berths to the College World Series (1998, 2000, 2001), winning a NCAA National Championship in 1998. Additionally, Nieto boasts two PAC-10 championships with the Trojans (2001, 2002).

Equally impressive is Nieto’s playing experience, which spans both the collegiate and professional ranks. From 1985-1986, Nieto played at California State University, Fullerton. He then went on to play for the Chicago White Sox (1986-1988) and Detroit Tigers (1989) professional franchises.

The move to Damien High School confirms Nieto’s commitment to Catholic education and represents an opportunity for growth and development as the Spartans look forward to competition in the new Baseline League.
