Bill Pintard

Owner, MLB Scout Consultant

Few people in baseball today can boast as impressive and varied a record as Bill Pintard. As manager and executive director of the Santa Barbara Foresters, Bill has led the college summer-ball team to five national championships, most recently in 2014. His teams have finished in the top Six nationally every year since 2003 and have reached the NBC World Series an all-time record 20 consecutive seasons. Since taking over the team in 1995, Bill has won more than 800 games and 18 California Collegiate League titles, and is believed to be the winningest coach in Collegiate summerball history. In 2014, he was named to the NBC World Series Hall of Fame. More than 40 former Foresters have reached the Major Leagues, along with another 300-plus who have signed minor-league contracts.

He returned to the Yankees in 2013, as scout focusing on amatuer high school and college players. In 2009, he was given a prestigious scouting honor, the Sparky Anderson Award by the Association of Professional Ballplayers for his ongoing contributions to baseball player development. Finally, along with a busy family and baseball life, Bill is the director of the Foresters’ Hugs for Cubs, a year-round support program for children and families battling cancer and other serious illness. Bill is a longtime resident of Carpinteria, where he and his wife Kris have raised four children, Ethan, Eric, Brittany and Kelby.
