Retiring #19

Vincent Masco spent three decades guiding the Drew baseball program. Over 26 seasons, Masco became Drew’s all-time winningest baseball coach with 387 wins. In his first season at the helm, Masco immediately turned the program around when the team more than doubled the number of wins from the previous season and captured a conference title. In 2006, Masco led the Rangers back to the MAC Freedom Playoffs for the fourth time and recorded his 338th career win.

Masco was selected as the 1998 Coach of the Year by the New Jersey Baseball Coaches Association, and was then voted the 1999 Middle Atlantic Conference Freedom League Coach of the Year after guiding the Rangers to their first Freedom League title. In addition, he guided the Rangers to five ECAC playoffs and four MAC postseason appearances. His 165th career victory on April 17, 1996 elevated him to first on Drew’s all-time victory chart, and in 1998 he became the first Drew coach in any sport to record 200 career victories. Masco upped the ante and cemented himself as a legend in college coaching when on April 9, 2004 the Rangers defeated Delaware Valley College 7-6, giving him his 300th career win. That victory gave him a place not only in the Drew history books, but in the NCAA, as he became one of the top 50 all-time winningest Division III coaches.

A 1971 graduate of Trenton State College, Masco currently serves as Drew’s associate director of athletics. He has served on numerous committees including the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Baseball Selection committee and the MAC Baseball Sports Committee. He served as the chair of the ECAC Mid-Atlantic Baseball Selection committee, and maintained a role on the ECAC Basketball committee after coaching the Drew basketball team from 1986-95.
