Few men have had as great an impact on amateur baseball as Sonny Maynard, who directs the Cavaliers baseball program to the forefront of collegiate baseball in not only the Jayhawk Conference, but nationwide. The first coach in JCCC baseball history, Maynard logged 504 victories in 14 years as the Cavaliers skipper, an average of 36 wins per season. Five of his 14 seasons he led JCCC to 40 or more wins, including a school record 48 in 1985. He finished with a career winning percentage of .741, and never finished with a percentage below .600. Maynard also piled up championships, amassing seven East Jayhawk Conference titles, four Eastern Sub-region titles, three Region VI titles and five national rankings. Nineteen of his players were drafted by professional baseball teams, and he tutored five AllAmericans and 36 All-Region VI performers. In the summer of 1980, Maynard was selected by the United States Baseball Federation as one of the coaches for the Japan-USA All-Star Series. The USA team lost the first game, but won six straight for the championship.

Carl Heinrich became just the third coach in the program history in 1999, serving a pinch hitter for Kent Shelley. Former JCCC athletic director Lori Mallory’s choice for an interim successor seem natural. Heinrich, who has served as Shelley's top assistant, had been an instrumental part of building JCCC baseball into one of the most competitive and highly regarded programs in the NJCAA. Who else could assume the leadership and keep the Cavaliers tradition going strong? Heinrich led his team to a 28-19 mark, the most wins by a first year coach in JCCC baseball history. Heinrich also led his club to two wins in the Eastern subregion tournament, including a 5-2 victory over defending national champion Cowley County. Individually, Heinrich coached eight all-conference players, tying only the 1992 season for most honored players, and the JCCC Male Athlete of the Year. Heinrich also saw nine sophomore sign letters of intent.
