PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – The University of Maryland Eastern Shore athletic program is pleased to announce that its 11th featured Hall of Fame member to be spotlighted in 50 Shades of Maroon and Gray is Kim Hall. The spotlight on Hall continues UMES’ countdown to the 2014 Hall of Fame induction on Feb. 14. He is the 11th of 50 Hall of Fame members to be highlighted over the next several months.
Hall was a three-year member of the UMES men’s basketball team, but was known more for his ability on the baseball field. Hall was the first UMES player to be drafted by a Major League Baseball affiliated team in 1971. Hall was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 20th round (No. 476 overall) and played in Bluefield, W.V., and Miami, Fla. The shortstop followed up his professional baseball career as a baseball coach at UMES.
Hall was also a superb basketball player at UMES. He was a member of the first regular season undefeated CIAA team in 1969-70. As a junior, he scored a career-high 40 points against Norfolk State. The Princess Anne, Md., native was an assistant coach to John Bates for the 1973-74 National Invitational Tournament team. He was named to the UMES Athletics Hall of Fame in 2004.
