Zak Larkin | Assistant Coach
Zak Larkin begins his first year as an assistant coach for Dan Davis and the Truman Baseball team.
Larkin played all four years for Coach Davis and is second on the career games played list at 202. He is also the career record holder at Truman in at bats (708), runs scored (140), stolen bases (86) walks (89), second in hits (200) and 10th in total bases (236).
As a senior, Larkin was the team’s leadoff hitter in 56 games, hitting .298 with 12 doubles and 26 stolen bases. He reached base in 23 straight games and had a season-high 10-game hitting streak. He provided arguably the biggest hit in Truman Baseball history with a bases clearing double in the top of the ninth inning in the regional championship game against Ashland that sent the Bulldogs to their first Division II College World Series. Larkin split time in the field playing 31 games at second and 25 games at third base. He broke the single-game record with four stolen bases (out of four attempts) against Quincy on April 14.
Larkin has earned Academic All-GLVC for three seasons and was a member of the MIAA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll following his freshman campaign. He is originally from St. Louis, Missouri and attended and played at DeSmet High School.
