Howard Mourns the Loss of Former Baseball Coach
Howard University Mourns the loss of former baseball head coach Charles Edward "Chuck" Hinton, Jr. Hinton passed away yesterday at the age of 78.
Hinton came to Howard in 1971 after an outstanding major league career and went on to coach for 28 years at the Hilltop and becoming the winningest coach in school history.
During his tenure, Hinton led the Bison to their first ever MEAC title and was responsible for the careers of former Major league standouts Milt Thompson and Jerry Davis.
Others who benefitted from Hinton's mentoring include boxing promoter Rock Newman and broadcaster Glenn Harris.
Hinton authored a book "My Time At Bat" that was released in 2002.
Services and arrangements for Hinton will be announced at a later date.
