Manny Cervantes joins the Asbury University baseball team in 2014-15 for his first season at the helm and the first for a full-time baseball coach in Asbury history.

Cervantes played at both Oklahoma State and Kentucky and spent two years in the Seattle Mariners’ minor-league system before turning to coaching.

Cervantes is originally from Whittier, Calif., and was drafted by the New York Mets in the 48th round in 1987 straight out of high school, but instead opted to play in college. He played first base at Oklahoma State from 1988 to 1990, during which time the Cowboys made the NCAA tournament three times and reached the national title game in 1990.

In April 1988 he was named as the Big Eight Conference player of the week and in 1989 and in 1990 he was an Academic All-Big Eight Conference selection.

He transferred to Kentucky for his senior season and earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors in 1991 for the Wildcats. The Mariners signed him as a free agent later that year and he played two seasons in the Class A California League.

He coached in the Mariners’ minor-league system from 1992 to 1994 and in recent years established a private baseball coaching business in Stillwater, Okla. Cervantes, who also works as an insurance agent, worked as a volunteer coach at Stillwater High School in 2011 and 2012.

Prior to coming to Asbury, Cervantes served as an assistant at Oklahoma Christian University from 2012 until 2014 managing most of the recruiting responsibilities and being instrumental in the Eagles' 38-17-1 record in 2014. 

Cervantes is currently recruiting for the 2015 season for Asbury baseball but will officially start duties here at AU on July 1, 2014.

Cervantes will relocate to the Wilmore area in late June to start full duties as the Eagles' new head coach. Coach Cervantes will be joined by his two younger children as the oldest will stay in Oklahoma to start her college career at Oklahoma State University.
