October 11, 2019: Coach Chuck Hartman with his Colleagues, Friends & Family

One of the NCAA’s top baseball coaches was honored on Friday, October 11th with a special bench dedication along the Huckleberry Trail near Southgate Drive. The ceremony was to honor the former longtime baseball coach at Virginia Tech, Chuck Hartman. The bench was placed using contributions made by donors to the Trail’s main support organization, “Friends of the Huckleberry Trail.” The Chuck Hartman Bench is located directly across from Virginia Tech’s English Field where all of VT’s baseball games are played. Earlier this year, the NCAA named him one of baseball’s greatest coaches and placed him in the top 9 winning baseball coaches of the NCAA. Chuck coached Virginia Tech baseball to 961 wins over the course of 28 years – making him the most-winning coach of all time at Virginia Tech.
