St. Bonaventure University baseball coach Larry Sudbrook was inducted into the New York State Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday. Sudbrook was one of 15 baseball icons including major league greats Tom Browning and Orel Hershiser to join the Hall of Fame this year. Sudbrook recently completed his 30th season as the head coach of the Bonnies. He is far and away the winningest coach in the program's history with 628 victories. He has led St. Bonaventure to eight appearances in the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament, one A-10 Championship and one NCAA Tournament berth (2004), and 19 seasons of 20 wins or more. He was named the A-10 Coach of the Year in 2000 and in 2006. He has also coached 11 student-athletes who have gone on to be selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. Sudbrook's legacy of helping develop students as well as athletes is evidenced by the Bonnies' 35 Academic All-Conference selections during his tenure.
