Irish Open 2016 Season At Santa Clara This Weekend

Notre Dame and the Broncos begin a three-game set at 9 p.m. (ET) Friday.

Former University of Notre Dame baseball standout Robert Youngdahl rejoined the program in the fall of 2015 as its volunteer assistant coach after two outstanding seasons playing for the Irish from 2014-15.

In his role Youngdahl oversees camps, coaches the outfielders, assists with hitting and coaches first base during games among other duties.

Youngdahl, who completed an economics degree from the College of Arts & Letters in December 2015, finished up his two-year Irish career in May 2015. After transferring from Iowa Western Junior College in the fall of 2013, the New Brighton, Minnesota native overcame an up-and-down 2014 campaign to produce a standout senior season.

He started 59 games and appeared in all 60 contests in 2015, hitting .290 with 20 doubles, seven homers, 46 RBI, 18 walks, seven stolen bases and 35 runs to earn third team all-Atlantic Coast Conference honors. The right fielder led his team in doubles and RBI and finished second in homers and hits.

For his career Youngdahl earned two monograms and had a slash line of .263/.430/.322 with 109 hits, 27 doubles, six triples, 10 homers, 63 RBI, 32 walks, 10 stolen bases and 54 runs scored. Youngdahl also doubled as a LHP and tallied a 1-1 mark and a 1.80 ERA in eight appearances over 20.0 innings on the mound.

Youngdahl and his wife, Benet, married in January 2016.
