Kentucky baseball coach Nick Mingione was surprised Monday afternoon when he received the honor of being named a Kentucky Colonel. Being named a Kentucky Colonel is the highest title that the Governor of Kentucky can give.

Mingione was named the 2017 SEC Coach of the Year and Perfect Game/Rawlings National Coach of the Year. He led Kentucky to its first-ever trip to Super Regionals.
