James Freeman spent 31 years at the helm of the Ithaca College baseball program, posting a record of 281-82-2 (.773) and leading Ithaca to four NCAA tournament appearances at a time when all NCAA teams played in the same division. His 1962 team reached the College World Series, (Ithaca is still one of the smallest schools to ever reach the World Series), upsetting Missouri in the opener before dropping one-run decisions to Florida State and Texas.
