The American Baseball Coaches Association will be inducting Verona’s Fred Hill into its Hall of Fame on Saturday, January 3 in Orlando.

Hill retired last year after 30 season as the head baseball coach at Rutgers University with a 941-658-7 record. While there, his teams made it to 11 NCAA regional playoffs and had 12 regular season conference championships and eight conference tournament titles. Before joining Rutgers, Hill was head baseball coach at Montclair State, where he amassed a 148-91-2 record, three NCAA Tournament appearances and a berth at the 1983 Div. III World Series. Over his career, Hill sent 72 players to professional baseball and developed 20 All-Americans. Both Todd Frazier of the Cincinnati Reds and David DeJesus of the Tampa Bay Rays played under Hill at Rutgers.

Hill will be honored with Denney Crabaugh, Mark Fuller, Ray Korn and Mike Roberts. Crabaugh spent 26 years as the head baseball coach at Oklahoma City University and Fuller was the head coach at Wisconsin’s Cumberland High School for 34 years. Korn coached in New Jersey high schools for 34 years and then served as a pitching coach for college and professional teams. Roberts led the University of North Carolina to nine NCAA tournaments and two College World Series appearances in 21 seasons.
