Dave Reinemann, a Wisconsin Lutheran College alumnus and former assistant baseball coach, is in his sixth season as head baseball coach at WLC. Reinemann was named the fifth head baseball coach in program history on June 9, 2008.
Reinemann guided WLC to the most single-season and 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 mentored three players to all-conference honors last season, and has coached 14 players to all-conference recognition through his first five seasons as head coach. Reinemann ranks second all-time with 74 wins at WLC.
The Warriors finished 12-28 under Reinemann in 2012, including 9-13 in conference play. Reinemann coached four players who earned All-Northern Athletics Conference recognition.
In 2011, Reinemann guided the Warriors to a 19-21 overall record. At the time, the 19 wins tied a school record that was first achieved by the 2002 club. WLC also finished 10-12 in conference play, also tying a then-program record for conference wins in a season.
Reinemann managed the Warriors to an 11-26 overall record (7-15 NAC) in 2010. It marked back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time since the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
Reinemann returned to his alma mater after spending five years (2003-2008) teaching English and serving as the head varsity baseball and girls' basketball coach at Northland Lutheran High School in Wausau, Wis.
He has also spent time in the scouting and baseball operations departments with the Milwaukee Brewers, and since 2004, has established and conducted Christian outreach baseball camps in the Dominican Republic.
Reinemann graduated from WLC in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in English. A four-year starting infielder on the WLC baseball team, he served as team captain, was named NAIA All-District, All-Lake Michigan Conference and was the recipient of the WLC Scholar-Athlete Award his senior season.
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 his bachelor of science degree in education from Martin Luther College in 1997.
He attended Howards Grove High School in Howards Grove, Wis., where he served as team captain of the baseball, basketball, and football teams and was an All-Central Lakeshore Conference performer in baseball and football his senior year (1989).
