After ten seasons on the job, Champion baseball coach Tim Cope will step down as varsity baseball coach, effective at the end of the season. He previously spent six seasons as head coach at Southington.
During his career, he has posted a career record of 242-117.
Cope’s coaching resume includes three State final four appearances, three Regional championships, a pair of Regional runner-up finishes, and five District championships.
“I have made some lasting relationships in the brotherhood of coaching,” Cope said. “To the umpires and my colleagues, thank you for all that you do. I will see you around the diamond. Who knows, maybe I will return someday,” he added.
Cope was inducted into Chalker High School Athletic Hall of Fame with the 1998 team.
