Fritz Hamburg
Following a successful season that included a regular season title, Saint Joseph's head coach Fritz Hamburg received another accolade last week when he was honored as Coach of the Year by the Mid-Atlantic Scouts Association. 

The Hawks set several records in 2023, including runs scored and home runs while finishing 27-22-1. The regular season Atlantic 10 title marked the first in program history. Hamburg also earned Coach of the Year honors from the conference. 

"It is a great honor to be recognized with this award by the Mid-Atlantic Scouts Association," Hamburg said. "I have a great level of respect and appreciation for all that the professional scouts do to enhance and grow the game. They have certainly affected our program by drafting several of our players over the years and allowing dreams to become a reality." 

Nine players have been drafted from Saint Joseph's under Hamburg's reign, including Brett Callahan who was selected by Detroit in the 13th round this past June. Other recent draftees include Andrew Cossetti in 2022 and Tim Brennan in 2018. 

"When you have an outstanding group of people to work with who are dedicated and determined to achieve victory on a regular basis, winning becomes more common," Hamburg said. "That was the case last year with our ballclub. We had a great group of players and a very cohesive coaching staff who enjoyed being together on and off the field. We had a great deal of fun every day. I am pleased that we were able to bring home the A-10 regular season championship for the University and our baseball alumni." 

Hamburg has completed 15 seasons at Saint Joseph's and is the program's all-time leader in wins.
