    Skip is among the first 46 former players/coaches to be nominated to the college baseball hall of fame. Pretty cool stuff, I wonder if he will make it in the first year of voting.

    If Skip's not a lock for first-ballot induction, then the system is flawed! :thumb:

    Congrats, Skip!

    Skip is pretty much the reason that college baseball is what it is today. He's a lock.

    my locks to get in are Pete Incaviglia (that sob never made an out against us) and Coach Ron Dedeaux.
    Hopefully, my favorite MLB player (Fred Lynn will make it since he didn't make it into the MLB HOF.)

    You're right to a degree, he and the guy that he coached under at Miami. I'd say Skip, Dedeaux and Fraser will be the 3 coaches that go in on the first ballot. Dedeaux is the biggest lock though.

    I think a lot depends on how large the first class will be. Also, what's the voting criteria for entry? The NFL HoF takes 5 guys every year, MLB uses a ballot percentage that means the size of the class varies from year to year. If you rank the coaches that are nominees, you would think Dedeaux is on top, followed by Skip. Question is, will 2 coaches make it in the first class?
