STAMFORD, Texas - After 22 years at the helm of Stamford baseball, Head Coach Lannie Templeton is hanging up his cleats.
Templeton hit the 300 win mark early this season, and finishes his career with the Bulldogs at 318 in the w column. Templeton also led Stamford to four regional championship, as well as four state tournament appearance. Unfortunately, he never was able to bring home a ring.
"It's bittersweet," said Templeton. "I mean we've had a good run and it's a time to move on. I think it's the best for me as far as me and my family. I wish Stamford the best. I'll be here at the games, that's for sure."
On his top memory as the Bulldogs skipper, "The first trip to the State tournament was obviously a big one," recalled Templeton. "My youngest son was a senior, and that was pretty big."
Templeton was also quick to thank Stamford. They gave him his first Varsity head coaching job in 1992. Before that he was an assistant at Merkel.
