One of head coach Danny Hall’s two sons, Carter Hall is part of the Georgia Tech baseball team but is unlikely to see the field.
Carter Hall like his brother Colin has grown up around baseball their whole lives, after all their father has been the head coach at Georgia Tech for their entire lives. Unfortunately for Carter, a back injury derailed his season last year and that injury required surgery. That surgery however may have ended his baseball career but more importantly improved his “quality of life” immensely. You can read a full report on his back injury, surgery, and future here, a great article done by Rod McKenzie over at Georgia Tech’s 247 site, Go Jackets.
Prior to being shut down for 90% of the season, Hall played in six games for the Yellow Jackets last season. In those six games, Hall was able to gather 20 at-bats and 21 plate appearances, with those 21 plate appearances, Hall reached base seven time with six hits, including one double and his first two career home runs. He also knocked in six RBI. It’s safe to say his batting line of .300/.318/.650 was one of the best on the team through his first six games.
Going forward, as we mentioned, Hall’s career is murky to say the least. If Hall does grace the field of the Rusty C again, it will be a boost to the Jackets lineup. If not, he still has a bright future on and off the field.
Either way, we wish Carter the best of looking go forward with his future even if it means his career has come to an end.
