Coach Gilbert wins 1,000!

Thursday, April 12, 2012
Coach Morgan Gilbert of Tuckerman made history when his baseball team beat Piggott on April 3. That win was the 1000th win of his career. At a ceremony on April 6, past and present players of Coach Gilbert gathered at the Morgan Gilbert Baseball complex in Tuckerman to honor his accomplishment. Among those present were members of his very first team from Tyronza High School: Jerry Williams, Charles Williams and Carrol Hinton. Charles Williams pitched the "new" coach's first victory 48 years ago.
