Dave Reinemann, a Wisconsin Lutheran College alumnus and former assistant baseball coach, is in his eighth season as head baseball coach at WLC. Reinemann was named the fifth head coach in program history on June 9, 2008.
The Warriors amassed their third straight winning season in 2015, a feat never achieved before in program history. WLC finished 19-17 overall and 8-12 for the second straight season in the NACC, just narrowly missing out on the NACC Tournament.
Under Reinemann's direction in 2014, the Warriors finished 20-19 overall, marking back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time in program history. WLC finished 8-12 in conference play, just two games shy of reaching the conference tournament for the second straight season. Reinemann mentored Garrick Day to All-NACC First Team, D3baseball.com All-Midwest Region First Team, and ABCA/Rawlings All-Midwest Region Third Team honors.
The all-time winningest coach in program history, Reinemann guided WLC to its most conference wins in program history in 2013, when it finished 20-17 overall and 11-11 in the NACC to reach the conference tournament for the first time in the seven-year history of the league. As the sixth and final seed in the tournament field, WLC made a magical run to the NACC Tournament championship game before falling to top-seeded Concordia Chicago. Reinemann has coached 14 players to all-conference recognition, including five First Team selections, through his first seven seasons as head coach.

After graduation, Reinemann returned to WLC in 1994 to serve as an assistant baseball coach, responsible for hitting, defense, and recruiting for one season. Reinemann went on to receive a bachelor of science degree in education from Martin Luther College in 1997.
