On precipice of becoming OVC’s wins leader, Gary McClure to be inducted into APSU Athletics Hall

 

APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – When Billy Merkel stepped down as Austin Peay State University baseball coach in Fall 1987, then-athletics director Bob Brooks had a decision to make: begin a search for a replacement, possibly interrupting fall practice and workouts, or name Gary McClure, the program’s graduate assistant, as interim coach.

It would be unfair to call Governors baseball an afterthought back then-APSU only had one Ohio Valley Conference title (1972) prior to that, but it certainly was not at the forefront of any APSU athletics discussions.

Former Gov Kelley created his own baseball destiny

 

Few days will be more important to Shawn Kelley than June 1st, 2007.

APSU Governors LogoThe October 2007 day he and the former Kelsey McNalley were married; the upcoming birth of his first child in late August; the day in early April 2009 that Kelley was told he had made the Seattle Mariners ball club are all dates undoubtedly more important to Kelley.
