Rick Jones to speak Wednesday for Life Resources Bottom Line Zoom meeting
Former Tulane head baseball coach Rick Jones will speak during the weekly Life Resources Bottom Line Luncheon this Wednesday, September 2 via Zoom.
Jones was inducted into the Tulane Athletics Hall of Fame in 2017. He was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association in 2017 as well. Jones was voted into the Allstate Sugar Bowl Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame this year. His No. 10 jersey is set to be retired by Tulane.
In 21 seasons (1994-2014) as the head coach of the Green Wave, Jones guides his teams to 818 wins and 445 losses with two ties. Jones led Tulane to the College World Series twice (2001, 2005) and was named National Coach of the Year by Baseball American in 2005. He is the winningest coach in Conference USA history. Jones’ teams won four C-USA regular season championships and five C-USA tournament titles.
Jones took his Tulane teams to 12 NCAA Tournament appearances in his 21 seasons. In 2009, Jones was named head coach of the USA National Team.
While Jones produced 76 players who signed professional baseball contracts, including 54 who were drafted, perhaps most impressive was the fact that every player that played four years for Jones earned a degree.
Jones and his wife Gina now reside in North Carolina.
You are invited to listen and participate to the Life Resources Bottom Line Luncheon with Rick Jones. All are welcome.
