Head Coach Ben Hall
Ben Hall enters his second season as the head baseball coach at North Carolina A&T.
Hall comes to A&T after spending three seasons with the Winthrop Eagles baseball program. During his time with the Eagles he assisted with infielders, hitters and all aspects of recruiting, which included 2014 first-team All-Big South outfielder TJ Olesczuk who was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles and 2013 all-conference third baseman Chad Smith.
Before accepting the post at Winthrop, Hall worked at Division II Wingate for four seasons. He started there as a graduate assistant before being promoted to an assistant coach in 2010, where he worked with hitters and infielders. In 2011, the Bulldogs finished in the top-10 in hits, doubles, home runs and slugging percentage nationally.
The Bulldogs finished 34-22, won the South Atlantic Conference Tournament and earned a bid to the Southeast Regional in 2011. Slugger Dodson McPherson was one of the best offensive players in the country, earning SAC Player of the Year. He was also named first-team All-SAC, first-team All-Southeast Region, Southeast Region Player of the Year, first-team All-American (by two different publications) and was a finalist for the Tino Martinez Award which goes to the Division II player of the year.
Hall’s other slugger at Wingate, Brian Yeung, led the nation in doubles and was among the nation’s leaders in home runs, total bases and hits. Yeung scored second-and-third-team All-American accolades and was first-team All-Southeast Region.
Wingate won the SAC regular-season title in 2010 behind the bats of All-SAC performers Logan Issacs (second baseman) and Chris Vasquez (shortstop). After lettering twice at Clemson University in baseball, Hall began his coaching career as a student assistant coach at Clemson. As a player, he became familiar with A&T when the two schools faced each other in the 2005 NCAA regional in Clemson.
Hall played one season each at Stetson and Daytona Beach Community College before transferring to the Tigers. With Stetson he hit .321 and was named to the Atlantic Sun Conference All-Freshman team.
He received his undergraduate degree in sports management from Clemson in 2007 and his master of business administration degree from Wingate in 2009.
