Don Huml, the former New Haven High School baseball coach who led the Bulldogs to their first regional title, passed way January 22.

He was 90 years old.

"Don was dedicated, conscientious, and cared for his players and program," current New Haven head coach Dave Bischoff, who immediately proceeded Huml, said in a statement on the team's Facebook page. "That served as a great example to follow. I also appreciated his continued interest and his annual visit to a game or so each spring to show his support."

Huml coached and taught biology in East Allen County Schools for 35 years, including 17 seasons in the dugout as New Haven's head coach. In addition to a 1971 regional championship, the Bulldogs won three Northeastern Indiana Athletic Conference titles, two sectionals titles. He surpassed the 200 career victory milestone in the 1983-84 season.

Huml also assisted in coaching track & field and football. 

Huml was a founding member of the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association and was inducted into the New Haven Athletics Hall of Fame in 2010.

New Haven is one of 26 high schools that partners with Parkview Sports Medicine for athletic training, nutrition, sports performance, athletic rehabilitation and other sports medicine services for Bulldog student-athletes. Learn more at www.parkviewsportsmedicine.com.
