Gordie Gillespie, one of the greatest college baseball coaches in history, passed away at the age of 88 on February 28, 2015 after a long illness.
He retired following the 2011 college baseball season after 59 years and a college baseball-best 1,893 coaching victories at the time after coaching baseball teams at Lewis, St. Francis, and Ripon Colleges.
The coaching legend amassed 2,402 victories in four sports.
Gillespie was inducted into 15 halls of fame and went 55 consecutive years (3,371 contests) without missing a game.
We dedicate our Labor Day weekend showcase tournament in his name.
