Oakland hosted Central Michigan for the first Division I baseball game at Jimmy John's Field

Colin Kaline was named co-head coach for the Oakland Baseball program in July of 2016. Kaline came to Oakland after spending three seasons as the assistant coach at Florida Southern.

In his first year, Kaline helped Oakland make history by wnning its first-ever Horizon League Tournament games, going 2-2. The two wins marked just the second time in the Division I era that Oakland won multiple conference tournament games with the last time coming in 2000 as members of the Summit League.

During his time at Florida Southern, Kaline coached the hitters and infielders, helping the team reach as high as No. 7 in the country in 2016 while making a Regional Final appearance in 2014. He has coached eight all-conference and all-region players, including two All-Americans and one Gold Glove recipient. Each of the last two seasons at FSC the team has finished with over a .300 batting average and scored over eight runs per game.

Kaline was drafted in the 26th round by the Detroit Tigers in 2011 out of Florida Southern where he spent two years in the organization before joining the coaching staff for the Gulf Coast League Tigers. At FSC, he led the team in walks his last three seasons, batting .287 his senior year. The Tigers also drafted him in the 25th round out of Birmingham Groves High School, where as a senior, he batted .535 with just three strikeouts in 187 at-bats.

He is the grandson of Major League Baseball and Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Al Kaline.
