SDSU Hall of Fame and baseball coach, Jim Dietz, dies at 83, Obituary and Cause of Death, Age, Wife, Family

James Clyde Dietz aka Jim Dietz is an American former baseball player and coach. He served as the head baseball coach at San Diego State University from 1972 to 2002, compiling a record of 1230–751–18.

Jim Dietz, a long-time baseball coach and a member of the SDSU Hall of Fame, has died at the age of 83.

Former San Diego State baseball coach Jim Dietz, the winningest coach in Aztec history, died Sunday in Florence, Ore., from complications from Alzheimer’s and dementia, his wife Carol said. He was 83 years.

From 1972 through 2002, Dietz led the Aztecs for 31 years, winning 1,230 games and placing in the top 40 all-time coaches. Throughout 31 seasons, he averaged 40 wins and a.620 winning percentage.

After retiring in 2002, Dietz was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame the following year.

Tony Gwynn, who played for Dietz and later became the Aztecs’ coach, honored him by retiring his No. 4 before a game against TCU in 2003.

He was too ill to attend the event when San Diego State enshrined him into its Athletic Hall of Fame in 2019, 17 years after he retired.

Dietz, an NAIA All-American infielder at Southern Oregon, spent one year in the Detroit Tigers’ minor league organization. He led Pleasant Hill High School to the state championship in Oregon in 1968.

He coached freshmen basketball and JV baseball at Oregon and had accepted the position of baseball coach at Lewis-Clark State College before taking over for Lyle Olsen at San Diego State.

In 1984, his Aztecs teams set a school record by winning a school-record 66 games, the most in the US at the time. His teams won eight conference titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament eight times, including the school’s inaugural appearance in 1979. The Aztecs were eliminated from the College World Series after losing to Stanford in the 1990 West I Regional championship game.
