Moe Geoghegan – General Manager
Moe Geoghegan formed the Orange County Riptide in 2015 and the Riptide joined the California Collegiate League in 2016. Geoghegan’s primary duties as the OC Riptide’s GM is to recruit players to play for the Riptide each summer and put the most competitive team on the field. In two years of CCL play, the Riptide won the CCL Championship in 2017 and Geoghegan was named General Manager of the year by the California Collegiate League.
Prior to starting the Orange County Riptide, Geoghegan served as Head Coach of the Orange County Scorpions baseball team, a collegiate wood bat club playing in the Western Baseball League from 1996 to 2001. As a head coach, he led his clubs to two top 10 national finishes at the NBC World Series. From those Scorpions teams, 18 former players were drafted or signed professional contracts. Six of those players played for Major League Baseball clubs.
Despite the OC Riptide’s relatively young age in the CCL, Geoghegan teams have never finished below .500 starting in 2017 and have seen numerous alumni go on and either get drafted or sign free agent professional baseball contracts.
Moe Geoghegan was born and raised in Southern California and grew up playing baseball in high school and college. An avid Dodgers fan, Moe lives with his wife Melissa and their four children in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.
