After 11 seasons as the head coach at MIT, Andy Barlow has elevated the program to one of the best in the NEWMAC. In 2014 he led the Engineers to their first NEWMAC championship and their 10th winning season in his 11 years at the helm. Barlow has seen his MIT teams reach 20 wins seven times, including a school record 27 victories in 2013 and 2014. A three-time NEWMAC Coach of the Year, his 2014 team also set the school mark with three wins in the NCAA Tournament.
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).
