Phil Hannon has brought honor to Baker University through his individual athletic achievements, his career in professional baseball and his contributions as a college coach. At BU, he was a four-year letterman in both football and baseball for two Hall of Fame coaches, Charlie Richard (1995) and Dan Harris (2009). After college, he signed a professional baseball contract with the Chicago Cubs organization, where he played center field for the Pennsylvania League champions, the Geneva Cubs. His abilities earned him a spot on the coaching roster after he retired, and he remained with the Cubs before returning to his alma mater to coach our baseball team. He is married to Charlene Potter Hannon, ’85, and together they have four children: Andrew, ’09, Aaron, ’11, Annie, ’11, and Asher, ’16.
