On Saturday, October 13, VWC Head Baseball Coach Nick Boothe was one of five Old Dominion University graduates to be inducted into that school’s Sports Hall of Fame for 2012. As a member of the Monarchs baseball team, Boothe was a “major cog" in the Monarchs school record 50-11 season in 1985. He helped lead the Monarchs to the Sun Belt Conference title and a berth in the NCAA regional, driving in 68 runs in 1983 and 76 runs in 1985. Boothe hit .364 in 1983 and still shares the single game home run record with three against Charlotte on April 6, 1985. He was named All-Sun Belt conference both in 1984 as a catcher and 1985 as an outfielder and was the team MVP in 1984. In his coaching role at VWC, Boothe ranks 26th nationally with 586 career wins and is the only Old Dominion Athletic Conference coach to be named Coach of the Year six times.
