2020 College Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees

2020 Induction Ceremony

One of the winningest college coaches and one of baseball’s most decorated players highlight the 2020 National College Baseball Hall of Fame induction class.

This year’s class, which was inducted as a part of a virtual College Baseball Night of Champions ceremony Aug. 27, is headlined by three-time All-American Jason Varitek and former coach Jim Morris, who led 13 teams to the College World Series and won two national championships.

“We are happy to recognize another outstanding group,” said Mike Gustafson, president and CEO of the National College Baseball Hall of Fame. “This class touches so many levels of college baseball.”

The 2020 class consists of 12 inductees, including two coaches in Morris and Cal Poly Pomona and Pepperdine’s John Scolinos. Nine former players also will be inducted, including Georgia Tech’s Varitek, Minnesota’s Paul Molitor, Seton Hall’s Rick Cerone, Texas’ Jim Gideon, Southern University’s Pete Barnes, Arizona State’s Gary Gentry, Tuskegee’s Roy Lee Jackson, Panola and Texas Tech’s Doug Ault and Montclair State’s John Deutsch.

“As the event came together this year, we were reminded of why we honor these greats of college baseball,” Gustafson said. “It was great to hear the excitement in their voices and to see the happiness their induction has brought to their families, friends, coaches and college programs.”
