Stephenson enters College Baseball Hall of Fame

LUBBOCK, Texas – Winning over 1,800 career games and leading Wichita State to a National Championship, former WSU baseball coach Gene Stephenson was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday in Lubbock, Texas.

Stephenson coached at Wichita State from 1978 to 2013. He made 28 appearances in NCAA play and went 1,873-675-3. Stephenson becomes the fifth Shocker inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Other HOF inductees this year include Baylor player and coach Mickey Sullivan, pitcher Alex Fernandez out of Miami, and several others.

Forced out last year, 68-year-old Stephenson has publicly said he’d still like to coach somewhere. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
