Among the 2009 Hall of Fame class is one Vintage Era inductee and the first "small-school" inductee.

Branch Rickey, player and coach from Ohio Wesleyan and Michigan is the Vintage Era inductee. The Vintage Era designation is for those who played or coached prior to 1947.

The University of St. Francis head coach Gordie Gillespie is the small-school inductee. His career at Lewis University and St. Francis has seen him become the winningest coach in college baseball history. The "small-school" designation is for two- and four-year schools other than NCAA Division I.
