Pratt has coached 14 players selected in the MLB Draft, including three (Jacob Hanneman, Jaycob Brugman and Michael Rucker) who have seen time in the majors.
Since joining the program in 2013, Pratt has helped BYU claim West Coast Conference regular season championships in 2016, 2017 and 2019. BYU advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2002 after the Cougars also won the WCC Tournament in 2017.
