Bauth nears 800 career wins at ECC

by Amy Moritz

Erie Community College travels to Jamestown today for a twinbill in Region III baseball action. But the best story of the day is in the dugout.

Head coach Joe Bauth is two wins away from 800 career victories with the Kats' program.

ECC is 17-11 overall and 5-0 in Region III.

Bauth is in his 22nd season with the Kats baseball program, the longest tenured coach at ECC. He has led the Kats to six Region III titles and five NJCAA World Series appearances. The last two years, the Kats have compiled 30-win seasons.

In 2011, the team went 30-18 and finished fourth at the NJCAA World Series. Last season, the Kats went 32-17 and were the Region III Tournament runner-up.

ECC plays at Finger Lakes Community College on Tuesday.
