Minnesota Twins Hitting Coach, Joe Vavra attended the University Wisconsin-Stout where he played baseball. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1982 in the eightvh round and worked his way through the farm system before illness took him off the playing field while playing AAA. Joe stayed with the Dodgers for a total of 18 seasons as a coach, manager, instructor, director and coordinator at various levels in the Dodgers' system.

Joe Vavra will be remembered as the most dominant shortstop in UW-Stout baseball history. He was the leading hitter in 1980, 81 and 82 and the team MVP in 1981 and 82. He was inducted into the UW-Stout Athletic Hall of Fame in 1995.

Joe coached teams at Great Falls, Mont., Yakima, Wash., Vero Beach, Fla., and San Bernardino, Calif., he won three league championships and five divisional titles. He was awarded five managers of the year titles. In 1989 and 1994, he was named Baseball America magazine's "Short-A Season manager of the year." In 1995, he was named as the Dodgers' major league base running and bunting coach, where he has had the opportunity to coach the likes of Mike Piazza, Pedro Martinez, Eric Young and Roger Cedeno.

Joe put aside the Dodger blue and was named as the head coach of the UW-Stout baseball program in 1999. Then in 2001, he joined the Twins minor league organization as a field coordinator and manager. On October 27, 2005, Joe was named the Twins hitting coach, moving past hitting coach, Scott Ullger to third base coach. Joe received some criticism in the nomination because he has no formal major league hitting experience. Joe has however, worked with both the Dodgers and the Twins at the Major league level and has had some valuable hitting experience as a field coordinator.

Joe will bring a different perspective to the hitting team. He is still aggressive, but is more concentrated on getting on base than getting the ball over the wall.
