Steve Trimper


Walk Off Winning

“There are many books available on the topic of leadership. But there are not many written by an author who has taken their extensive leadership experience with high level sports and applied it to the business world.  Though many interviews, failures and successes, Trimper has come up with key principles related to team building, culture, and organization building. Walk Off Winning gives readers the motivation and strategies to “become a doer” This book is for anyone involved in leadership, sports management, and the general business world. Filled with inspirational anecdotes and honest advice, this is a much sought-after guide for leaders of all kinds.”

Success and Culture

What I do

I Coach.

A Coach of the Year selection in three different conferences, I led
the Manhattan team for seven seasons. In 2017, I took over the Stetson Baseball program and in just my second season, led the Hatters to their best season in program history.

I Speak.

I’ve spoken at numerous national conventions in recent years. I’ve addressed the 2005 ABCA National Convention in Nashville, Tenn., the 2013 convention in Chicago, and the 2018 convention, which was held in Indianapolis.

I Write.

With my upcoming flagstone book “Walk Off Winning” I hope to make the same impact in the literary world that I have made coaching.


” Through his experience in college athletics, combined with his relationships with leaders in the  business world, Steve identifies and describes the values that one must possess to build a strong culture.  I also love his optimistic approach reinforcing the benefits of positive leadership. This book will benefit anyone who has a passion to become a better leader at work and in life! “

coach, Steve Trimper has seen it all during his career. From having to sod a field in New York City to give his team a place to practice and play while coaching at Manhattan, to leading the Stetson Hatters onto the field rated as the best in the nation in 2018, Trimper has always been about doing the work to help his student-athletes become the best they can be.

his Manhattan team for seven seasons, earning Coach of the Year honors and a program record for single season victories. He took over a historically successful program in Maine in 2006, guiding the Black Bears to 3 America East titles and 2 berths to the NCAA Tournament. He was named Coach of the Year in 2013.
