Coastal Carolina gave its head baseball coach Gary Gilmore a dramatic 4-3 win in 13 innings versus Presbyterian College Thursday afternoon to give the 25-year skipper his 1,000th career victory.
He is the 50th NCAA Division I coach to reach 1,000 career wins and is one of 16 active coaches to reach the milestone.
Ironically, Gilmore’s first win came versus Presbyterian in 1990 in his first game as a head coach at USC Aiken.
His career record now stands at 1,000-489-2 in his 25th year as a head coach, including a 747-387 mark in 19 years as Coastal’s mentor (1996-present) and a 253-102-2 record in six years (1990-95) at USC Aiken.
