Ramon Garza

POSITION

Head Coach

Ramon Garza is in his first season as the Tom Sox’s head coach after previously playing for the team in 2019. He re-joins the Tom Sox after earning his master’s degree from the University of Texas at Dallas and finishing up a successful baseball career.

Garza played the full 2019 season for the Tom Sox, playing an integral role in the team’s second Valley Baseball League championship. Garza played in 43 games over the span of the regular season and playoffs, with a .289 average, 27 runs scored, and 18 RBI. He showcased his versatility on the diamond, playing games in the outfield, second base, shortstop, and even making three appearances on the mound. Prior to his 2019 summer with the Tom Sox, Garza also played the 2018 summer for the Woodstock River Bandits of the Valley League after spending time in the Cape Cod League.

Garza played three seasons at Cornell University, starting almost every game during his tenure with the Big Red. He started games at both shortstop and right field and served as the team’s cleanup hitter during the 2019 season.

Following his tenure at Cornell, Garza played the 2021 season at the University of Texas at Dallas. He was named a first team All-Region selection by the ABCA after hitting .345 with seven doubles and nine home runs and leading the team with 51 RBI. He stepped it up a notch in 2022, being named First Team All-ASC after hitting .387 with 18 doubles, 14 home runs, 58 RBI, and 65 runs scored. Garza finished his career with a .296 batting average, 126 RBI, 136 runs scored, and 25 home runs.

Said Garza: “I’d like to thank the entire Tom Sox organization for the opportunity to coach for one of the best summer collegiate teams in the country. I’m super excited to make my return to Charlottesville and once again represent such an outstanding organization and community. I look forward to being a part of another great season of Tom Sox baseball.”

Said Tom Sox President and General Manager Mike Paduano: “Anytime you can help develop young coaches it is exciting. For me, it is even better when that coach played in Charlottesville on our championship team. When Ramon played here, he had a team-first mentality – which is not something you see a lot of in summer baseball. He proved to be one of our most valuable players because he was able to play so many different positions. I am excited to work with him again, this time as our head coach. I believe he will be a leader by example with his work ethic and respect for the game.”
