Similar success has been achieved in women's outdoors on Baumann's watch, as four of Oklahoma State's top six outdoor marks in the shot put, five of the top six outdoor marks in the discus and five of the top eight outdoor marks in the hammer throw have been achieved since Baumann arrived in Stillwater.  In 2007 Baumann was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame based on his stellar career at Doane College in Crete, Nebraska.  Bauman and his wife, Lisa, have three daughters, Catabrean, Holly and Sadie, and one son, Max.
