2008 College Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees

Among the 2008 Hall of Fame class were three Vintage Era inductees -- Owen Carroll, pitcher and coach, College of the Holy Cross and Seton Hall; William J. "Billy" Disch, coach, Sacred Heart College, St. Edward's University and Texas; and Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson, infielder, Pasadena Junior College and UCLA. The Vintage Era designation is for those who played or coached prior to 1947.

"These are guys that made a significant contribution to the early history of college baseball," Hall of Fame co-chair Mike Gustafson said. "They played in an era before All-American teams and the awards that are commonly used to judge the performance of most recent players."
