8-12-06 – The small Johnston County community of Coleman gathered on Saturday morning to honor baseball legends. The names of Coleman High School’s 1947 inaugural baseball team are now listed on a new granite memorial, dedicated on Saturday. A second memorial honors the 1981 team, the first to play in the state tournament.
The tradition continued; more than 7 teams went to state and a few Coleman players were even called up into the major leagues.
More than 100 supporters gathered for the memorial dedication. The baseball booster club paid for the memorial dedications.
