After 10 seasons as the head coach at MIT, Andy Barlow has elevated the program to one of the best in the NEWMAC.

He earned his third NEWMAC Coach of the Year award in 2013 after guiding MIT to an NCAA Tournament berth and the NEWMAC Championship game for the second time in three years.

With over 20 years of dugout experience, Barlow made the move to Cambridge from Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where he served for nine seasons as Vassar College’s Head Baseball Coach. During his time with the Brewers, Barlow saw the program improve every season, culminating in a school record 19-win season in 2002.

After initiating a feeder system in Maine through the development of a youth clinic, Barlow extended his professional repertoire in 1988 to include the college scene, when he assumed duties as an assistant baseball coach at the University of Maryland. In 1991, Barlow made the switch to Hamilton, N.Y., specializing in the training of the pitching staff at Colgate University. Barlow stayed with the Red Raiders until inheriting the Vassar program in 1995, opting for the head coaching tag of a team that was just three years removed from club status.

A 1985 graduate of the University of Vermont, Barlow’s breadth of experience also includes time spent coaching in some of the top collegiate summer leagues in the country. Barlow is a longtime member of the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and is also an active member of the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA).
