Last Night a federal jury convicted Hutcherson of
fraud.

The Methodist pastor
misappropriated funds meant for people
on Social Security. He also used a
donation to charity from the Falwell
ministries to pay his taxes. The jury
found he lied about it, too.

April 27, 1992 Hartman has been coaching
baseball for nearly 50 years and
without a doubt one his biggest
highlights of his career came on April
27th in 1992 when he won his 1000th
game - becoming just the ninth coach in
history to reach that milestone. That
day he was given not only a golf bag,
but a customized golf cart.

He currently has 14 hundred and
41 wins, with nearly a thousand of
those coming with the Hokies.

His victory total makes him
fourth on the all-time division one
coaching ladder, and in 2004 he was
inducted into the American Baseball
Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

He also already is in the Salem
Roanoke Valley baseball hall of fame,

the Tech Hall of fame and two other
shrines.

Earlier this afternoon the man
who coached Tech in the Metro, Athletic
10, Big East and ACC talked about the
many young men he's worked with over
the years.
