CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS)-- After 20 seasons with the Cavaliers, head coach Brian O'Connor has been selected for the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. He will be inducted as one of 10 members of the 2024 ABCA Hall of Fame class.

While at Virginia O'Connor has guided the Cavaliers to six College World Series appearances, all of which have come since 2009. This past season UVA was one of just five teams to win 50 games, it was the fifth 50-win season by UVA in the last 14 years. 

“I’m incredibly humbled by such a prestigious honor,” said O’Connor. “To enjoy the sustained success that we have had at the University of Virginia, it starts with great players. I’ve been fortunate enough to have not only great players, but tremendously loyal and dedicated assistant coaches. I can’t thank our former players, our past and present coaches enough. They all have been so integral in the success of this baseball program and I share this honor with every one of them.”

Just this past season O'Connor crossed over the 800-win mark, becoming just the eighth coach in ACC history to reach 800 wins. In 20 seasons he’s accumulated a record of 839-353-2 with a winning percentage of .704, the highest of any active D-I college baseball coach.

He will be inducted at the 2024 ABCA Hall of Fame Banquet held on Friday, January 5, 2024 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center as part of the 2024 ABCA Convention.
