Hartman earned the highest recognition a collegiate coach can receive when he was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame during the ABCA 2004 annual convention in San Antonio, Texas. The honor came just a little over a year after his induction into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame in November 2002, and was magnified by the fact that he was already a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame.
Hartman’s overall coaching record of 1,444-816-8 placed him fourth in all-time wins among Division I baseball coaches (at the time he retired; now fifth). His final record at Tech is 961-591-8. He became Tech’s winningest baseball coach in 1987 and guided Tech to more victories than any other coach during the university’s athletic history.
