Baseball is a very successful sport at Georgia Tech, where it is one of the premier baseball teams in the NCAA. Georgia Tech baseball is notable for its high-scoring offenses and stout defenses. Before Tech had its own baseball field, it played at Brisbine Park. [2]

The team's success is guided by head coach Danny Hall. Danny Hall has coached Tech since 1994 and has posted 1,039 wins over that span. He has led Georgia Tech to 20 years of NCAA regional play and its only three College World Series appearances in 1994, 2002, and 2006.

The baseball team, under Hall, has become an annual contender for the ACC regular season and tournament titles winning each four and three times respectively.
