Georgia Tech
Inducted in 2024

In 36 seasons as a collegiate head baseball coach, Danny Hall has become one of the winningest coaches in the sport’s history. His 1,378-749-1 (.648) career mark means Hall will enter his 31st season at the helm of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets program in 2024 as the NCAA’s all-time winningest active coach. Since 1994, his Yellow Jackets have combined for a 1,170-632-1 (.649) record, making him the winningest coach in Georgia Tech baseball history as well as the all-time winningest NCAA Div. I coach in the state of Georgia. The four-time Atlantic Coach Conference (ACC) Coach of the Year has guided Georgia Tech to the NCAA Tournament 23 times while advancing to the College World Series in 1994, 2002 and 2006 – the program’s only three berths. Hall’s teams have collected ACC regular season or division titles seven times to go along with five ACC tournament crowns. Under Hall, the Yellow Jackets have produced 142 draft picks, including 15 first-round picks, as well as two National Players of the Year. Several former Yellow Jackets have gone on to excel at the MLB level, including Charlie Blackmon of the Colorado Rockies, Derek Dietrich of the Houston Texans, Buck Farmer of the Detroit Tigers, Blake Wood of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Sam Clay of the Washington Nationals and former MLB stars Mark Teixeira, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, Jay Payton and Matt Wieters. Hall’s head coaching career also includes a six-year stint at Kent State University in Ohio, where he led the Golden Flashes to a combined 208-117 (.640) record from 1988-93. There, his teams won more games than any other Mid-American Conference (MAC) school from 1989-93 and captured back-to-back MAC titles in 1992 and 1993, earning him MAC Coach of the Year honors in both years. Prior to his first head-coaching position, Hall served as an assistant coach at the University of Michigan, where the Wolverines won the Big Ten six times, participated in seven NCAA Regionals and four College World Series. Hall’s first coaching stop was as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Miami University in Ohio, where he spent two seasons. Hall was selected to the Miami Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998 and the Kent State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005. He was also inducted into the Miami Cradle of Coaches in 2007. A Lifetime Member of the ABCA, Hall currently serves on the Association’s Board of Directors and served as ABCA President in 2004.
