In this Black College Nines’ podcast we talk with North Carolina A&T head baseball coach Ben Hall. Coach Hall was hired as the permanent coach on July 21, 2015, making him the ninth Aggies baseball coach since the Aggies became an NCAA Division I program in 1982.
Hall has guided N.C. A&T baseball program from 10 wins in 2014 to the top of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in 2018 after the Aggies won the regular-season title, MEAC conference tournament and then leading N.C. A&T to the NCAA Chapel Hill Regional.
The Aggies finished with winning seasons in 2017 and 2018 under Hall, marking the first time the program has had back-to-back winning seasons since taking over.
In this podcast we cover the Aggies preparing for baseball after the pandemic, his student-athletes health and wellness, his coaching philosophy, tough non-conference schedule, move from the MEAC to the Big South and the team’s outlook for the 2021 season.
