Washington U coach retiring after 17 seasons

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The winningest coach in Washington University baseball history is retiring after 17 seasons.

Ric Lessman cited health concerns Tuesday as the primary reason for his departure, and leaves with a record of 396-231-1. Lessman has guided the school to 12 straight winning seasons, making it to postseason play four times.

Before coming to Washington University, Lessman was head coach at Meramec Community College for 27 seasons where he never had a losing season and made nine Junior College World Series appearances.

In 1995 Lessman became the 18th coach in college baseball history to top 1,000 victories. He was inducted into the National Junior College Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 1991 and was a 1992 inductee into the St. Louis Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame.
