After serving as a Georgia volunteer assistant from 2011-12, Tony Baldwin rejoined the Bulldog coaching staff as an assistant coach in June 2014. Baldwin returns to Athens after spending two seasons as an assistant coach at North Carolina.

In his first season back, the Bulldog offense exploded, ranking 13th in the nation with a .343 batting average. Georgia finished 11th nationally with 7.21 runs per game and 18th with a .420 on-base percentage. Baldwin guided two NFCA All-Americans in Alex Hugo and Cortni Emanuel, as Hugo was first in the SEC and 12th in the NCAA with 22 home runs while Emanuel was eighth nationally in stolen bases and top 100 in batting average. Nine staples to the Bulldog lineup posted batting averages of .330 or higher at the end of the 2015 season. Once the season concluded, six Bulldog batters were named NFCA All-Region while four made it to an All-SEC Team.

At UNC, Baldwin’s primary responsibilities included developing the team’s hitters and infielders. In 2014, Baldwin coached four .300 hitters and had three players hit double-digit home runs. Under Baldwin’s guidance, three Tar Heels were named to the All-ACC team, including one first-team selection and two second-team selections. In his first season, he helped nine Tar Heels finish the season batting over .300 while six had slugging percentages over .500.

Prior to his first stint at Georgia, Baldwin spent 14 years coaching Division I baseball. Baldwin was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Michigan State from 2006-08. Baldwin’s first recruiting class at Michigan State matriculated a Freshman All-American and multiple draft picks. His second recruiting class was ranked the top recruiting class in the Big Ten and was ranked top 50 in the country by Baseball America. His third recruiting class also produced a Freshman All-American and became the class with the most wins in school history.

Before Michigan State, Baldwin was the assistant head baseball coach at Dartmouth College from 2003-05 after serving as the assistant coach from 1999-2003. At Dartmouth College, he was the recruiting coordinator, travel manager, eligibility coordinator and worked with fundraising and alumni relations. Baldwin was the hitting and fielding coach, coordinated team defense, and was the third base coach, helping the team to Dartmouth’s first Red Rolfe Division Titles in 2000, 2001 and 2004.

Baldwin was the assistant coach at Butler University from 1994-99, and was the head coach of the Decatur Blues, of the Central Illinois Collegiate League, in 1999. At Butler, Baldwin was the hitting coach, coached the infielders and catchers and coordinated team defense. He helped lead the team to three MCC titles (1996, 1998 and 1999), which were the first in the history of the program.

A native of Bloomington, Ind., Baldwin graduated from Butler in 1995 with a degree in finance. He was a four-year starter at catcher for Butler. In 1994, he served as a team captain for the Bulldogs and earned All-MCC honors.

In addition to coaching, Baldwin served as the operations director at Camp Weequahic from 2009-2012.

Baldwin and his wife Suzanne have four children, Ella, Abby, Brady and Katie.
