The collegiate baseball season is just a few weeks away, but before the first pitch is thrown, 2018 already marks a special year for a few coaches.
San Jacinto Head Coach Tom Arrington and Cowley Head Coach Dave Brroughs will be inducted into the NJCAA Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame this May. These class of 2018 inductees will both be recognized at this year's JUCO World Series banquet.
Arrington's 37 wins at the JUCO World Series is an all-time record. He has six runner-up finishes along with almost 750 wins in 17 seasons.
Finishing just behind the Gators in the 2017 JUCO World Series, the Cowley Tigers finished third. Last year marked just one of Burroughs' eight trips in 21 years. The Tigers made back-to-back appearances in 2016 and 2017 and won back to back titles in 1997 and 1998. He has more than 1,200 wins in his 30 year career at Cowley.
