Hall of Famer Alday returns to coach Pima baseball; Leaves Ironwood Ridge Softball

Posted: Updated:

After multiple state championships with the Ironwood Ridge softball team, Coach Rich Alday is returning to baseball and Pima Community College.  Here's more from Pima College athletics:

The Pima Community College baseball program has its new coach and it is a familiar face.

Rich Alday has agreed to come back to lead the Aztecs as their head coach. Alday started the Pima baseball program and racked up a record of 496-220 in his 16-year career from 1974-1989. He took the Aztecs to the NJCAA National Championship game in 1985 and was named Coach of the Year on three occasions in 1981, 1983 and 1985.

He went on to coach the University of New Mexico for 18 seasons where he became their winningest head coach with 515 wins. He has a total of 1,011 wins in his collegiate career.

Alday also coached the Olympic U.S. National team in 1988, where they won the tournament as an exhibition sport. He took them back in 1996 when they won a bronze medal.

Alday was selected to the Pima County Sports Hall of Fame in 1994 and was part of the first Pima Community College Athletics Hall of Fame in 2013.

Alday replaces Jason Hisey, who spent seven seasons with the program.
