Head Baseball Coach Justin Blood has been named among the top 10 college head coaches under 40 years of age by Baseball America.
The publication notes that Blood has gotten "the Hawks on track and won the America East Conference regular season and tournament titles in 2018, leading Hartford to its first NCAA Tournament appearance. The former pitcher also helped turn lefthander Sean Newcomb into the 15th overall pick in 2014, the first first-round pick in program history."
It is Blood's second time on the distinguished list. He previously was named in 2013—his second season at Hartford.
