Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"It is an honor to be inducted into the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame. When I think about my time in Omaha, it was truly one of the highlights of my baseball career. The experience, the environment and mostly the fans make you feel like a big leaguer. Thank you for this honor." - Nomar Garciaparra

Inductees are formally honored at the Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans College Home Run Derby, which is played in the TD Ameritrade Park, Omaha, Nebraska.

Each year, about a week before the College Home Run Derby, the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame sends out a press release with the winners, details about why they were chosen, and details about the induction. The 2019 winners:

Eddie Bane : Bane was an integral part of Arizona State's starting rotation during the 1972 and 1973 College World Series in which the Sun Devils finished as the national runners-up. He made three starts over the course of two years in Omaha, throwing two complete game shutouts — against Oklahoma in a 1-0 victory in 1972 and against Minnesota in a 3-0 victory in 1973 — making him one of only three players to throw multiple complete-game shutouts in College World Series history. Bane was named to the College World Series Legends Team in 2010.

Over his career with the Sun Devils, Bane posted a 40-4 career record and a 1.64 ERA. He threw 27 complete games and 11 shutouts during his career, and owns the only perfect game in program history. He struck out a school-record 535 batters in 379.1 innings pitched. A two-time All-American, Bane was the 11th overall pick in the 1973 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins and went directly to the majors upon being selected. Currently, Bane is a scout in the Boston Red Sox organization, and was the scouting director for the Los Angeles Angels when the franchise drafted Mike Trout in 2009. He is the fourth Sun Devil to be named to the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame.

Huston Street : Street is the all-time College World Series leader in saves with five, and set the single-series record of four in 2002. He was named the College World Series Most Outstanding Player as Texas claimed the national championship in 2002. Street and the Longhorns returned to the College World Series in 2003 and 2004, and he would finish his College World Series career with 10 all-time appearances. In his three trips to Omaha, Street surrendered just three earned runs in 16.2 innings pitched, good for a 1.62 ERA. In 2010, he was named to the College World Series Legends Team.

A three-time All-American, Street finished his Texas career with a school-record 41 saves to go along with a 1.31 ERA, which ranks second in Texas history. He was selected with the 40th pick in the 2004 MLB Draft by the Oakland Athletics, and quickly made his mark on the major league level by winning the 2005 AL Rookie of the Year award. He played 13 seasons in the major leagues, amassing 324 career saves, and was a two-time All-Star. Street is the sixth Longhorn to be named to the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame.
