A class-act - 06/10/14
About a decade ago, I ran into Tim Corbin and his wife Maggie at Pizza Perfect in Hillsboro Village. It was close to midnight after the newscast. We had a brief chat and went on our ways.
At the time, I remember thinking how pleasant Vanderbilt's baseball coach was. I didn't know him well. But I was already a fan of his.
Fast-forward many years later, I can honestly say that you'd be hard-pressed to find a nicer person than Tim Corbin. He also happens to be GREAT at his craft!
Corbin has guided the Black and Gold to the College World Series again. It's the second time he's done so during his time along West End.
Successful? Absolutely. Affected by winning in a negative way? Never! Tim Corbin remains humble and extremely appreciative of what he's accomplished in his coaching career.
He's also grateful for those who have been along for the ride. His players...and Vanderbilt fans. Check out the hand-written note, pictured to the right, that Corbin posted on his Twitter feed today. If that's not class, I don't know what is.
Once again, well done Coach! You set a wonderful example for your players, and those of us in the media who are lucky enough to cover your team on a daily basis.
Good luck in Omaha!
