After 14 seasons as the head coach, Andy Barlow has elevated the MIT baseball program to one of the best in the NEWMAC and the New England region. In 2017, the Engineers advanced to the NEWMAC Championship and posted their 13th winning season in his 14 years at the helm. Capturing the 2016 ECAC Championship, Barlow's teams have reached 20 wins 10 times, including a school-record 29 victories in 2015. A four-time NEWMAC Coach of the Year, his 2015 team reached the regional finals at the NCAA Tournament.

Last season, Barlow saw two of his players drafted in the 2017 Major League Baseball Draft as Austin Filiere was chosen in the eighth round by the Chicago Cubs and David Hesslink went to the Seattle Mariners in the 34th round. MIT was the only Division III program in the nation to have multiple players chosen in the 2017 MLB Draft.

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).
