The latest guest on The Base Path Podcast is the newest Division 1 college baseball coach in New England.
Brian Hamm accepted the head coaching position at Yale University in June — fresh off a Division 3 national championship season with Eastern Connecticut State University. Hamm spent four years at Eastern, the last of which was one of the most successful in history for any New England college baseball team.
The Warriors posted a 49-3 record that included a program-record 23-game winning streak. Hamm was just the fifth coach in New England’s college baseball history to guide a national championship team, joining Eastern legend Bill Holowaty, who was at the controls for all of the program’s titles in 1982, 1990, 1998 and 2002.
Former Yale coach John Stuper retired after 30 seasons as head coach following the 2022 season. Hamm will now look to put his stamp on the Yale program.
