Michigan State baseball coach Jake Boss hits impressive career milestone
Michigan State head baseball coach Jake Boss hit an impressive career milestone over the weekend.
On Sunday, the Spartans defeated Northwestern 11-7, resulting in Boss’s 40oth career win as a head coach. It was his 375th victory in 13 seasons in East Lansing. He led Eastern Michigan to 25 wins in his only year with the program.
“I love my job; I love Michigan State and I’m proud to be the baseball coach here and it’s something pretty special I think,” Boss told MSUSpartans.com. “I guess I never really thought about it until somebody said something afterwards. It’s just an honor to be the coach here.”

Michigan State added 1 run in the 6th and 3 more to secure the victory in the 7th inning.
Michigan State will be back on the diamond on Tuesday, playing Notre Dame followed by a Wednesday contest against Purdue-Fort Wayne. The Spartans will then play Minnesota in a 3-game B1G series.
