Oros Returns as Head Coach for 2016

Michael Oros Returns for his Second Season as Head Coach

 

 

September 1, 2015 – The Victoria Generals announced today that Michael Oros will return for his second season as the head coach for the 2016 Generals. Oros, a right-handed pitcher for three seasons with the Generals (2009-2011) wrapped up his first season as head coach with a record of 35-19, finishing second in the TCL behind the Brazos Valley Bombers.  The Generals came up short in the playoffs, losing to the Acadiana Cane Cutters in a one game playoff.  

 

“I am excited to have Michael back and to have him signed early this season as he can assist in building the 2016 team,” commented Mike Yokum, Generals Vice President and General Manager.  “Michael has some unfinished business as we fell short of our expectation of bringing back a championship to Victoria and I know that is his top priority.”

 

Oros joined the Generals in the Summer of 2009 out of San Jacinto Junior College where he saw limited action as a freshman. The Generals allowed Oros to develop that first summer with 30 innings of work, compiling a 3-0 record, 1.53 ERA allowing only 5 earned runs with 26 strikeouts. His second season with the Generals, Oros was moved to a starter making 8 starts, tossed 53.1 innings, 2.19 ERA allowing 15 runs, a team leading 49 strikeouts while compiling a 4-1 record. Oros transferred to Sam Houston State University his junior season where he tossed 40.2 innings in relief. His final season as a General, Oros made 12 starts, 69.1 innings pitched with 48 strikeouts while compiling a 3-3 record. Oros is the Generals franchise record holder in wins (10), starts (24), innings pitched (152.0) and strikeouts (123).  Oros finished up his collegiate career at Sam Houston as their number one pitcher compiling an 8-1 record with a 2.52 ERA in 78.2 innings of work his senior season.

 

Oros would go on to play professional baseball  for two seasons with the White Sands Pupfish of the Pecos League and the Florence Freedom of the Frontier League. Oros was the Freedom team leader in innings pitched with 87 innings as well as strikeouts with 80. Oros led the Frontier League in ERA with a 2.16 ERA while also being selected as a Frontier League All-Star.

 

"My goal coming into this past season was to win a championship and we came up short and it is my job to return and get that title," commented Oros. "We had a great group of guys this past summer and many are really wanting to return so our foundation is going to be solid in 2016. Another year of experience under their belt will make them even better players for the Generals next summer." 

 

The Victoria Generals will play 60 games in 2016 with 30 of the games being played here in Victoria at Riverside Stadium. The 2016 schedule will be released in late November. Follow the Generals at www.victoriagenerals.com for more information about the upcoming season.
