Eric Owens
Head Coach Read more Read less

Eric Owens, born on February 3, 1971, in Danville, Virginia, is Ferrum College’s new Head Coach and a proud alumnus. Owens’s journey from local standout to Major League Baseball (MLB) player is marked by his dedication and passion for the game.

Owens’s talent shone early, earning him two-time 1st team All-American honors and USA Player of the Year. His excellence led to inductions into the halls of fame of Roanoke, Ferrum College, Danville, and Tunstall High School.

His MLB career (1995-2003) saw him play for teams like the Cincinnati Reds, Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, Florida Marlins, and Anaheim Angels. Owens achieved a .264 batting average, 26 home runs, and 214 RBIs. Notably, he executed a daring straight steal of home in 1999 and recorded the first hit at Seattle’s Safeco Field.

Transitioning to coaching, Owens developed young talents such as Mike Trout and Corey Seager. His coaching roles included positions with the Anaheim Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Toronto Blue Jays, where he significantly impacted players like Josh Donaldson.

Ferrum College is excited to have Eric Owens return as Head Coach. His rich experience and deep connection to the college promise to inspire and develop the next generation of baseball talent.
