University of Minnesota head coach John Anderson was inducted into the Minnesota High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame at a banquet on Saturday night. He is now an inductee of four different halls of fame.

Anderson will begin his 33rd season as a college head coach this spring, but he has also made significant contributions to Minnesota high school baseball, including organizing camps/clinics and fall leagues. Anderson played a vital role in fundraising for Siebert Field, which hosted a high school league this past fall. The Golden Gophers' roster always includes numerous players from Minnesota high schools.

A Minnesota high school product himself, Anderson graduated from Nashwauk-Keewatin High School in the northern part of the state.
