The spring of 2018 has turned out to be a banner year for Coach Huber’s Augustana team. For the first time in program history the team received the #1 in the national polls. At the time the Vikings were 36-2. The team went on to win the conference tournament championship and has set a new single season record for wins with 44. They are currently 44-8 and still playing out their season with hopes of a regional title and a trip to the College World Series.
In addition to a lot of team success in his 10 years at Augustana, Huber has helped develop some of the best talent in all of division 2 baseball. Another player was drafted in last year’s MLB draft (NY Yankees- 5th round) and yet another signed a pro contract with Fargo Moorhead of the American Association. That brings the total to 15 former Augie players from just the last 7 seasons to have gone on to play professional baseball (5 MLB draft picks).
Coach Huber enjoys working with kids and teaching the correct form, fundamentals, and techniques of baseball. His greatest area of baseball knowledge is hitting and that is the reason for the hitting emphasis at his camps. This summer will mark the 18th year Huber has been running camps.
