Former Eagles baseball standout 'most deserving' of Hall nod

Steve Kirby followed his baseball coach, Horace Turbeville, from Newberry College to Winthrop College in the late 1980s. He helped lead the Eagles to a record of 140 wins and 36 losses and a trip to the 1980 NAIA World Series, where Winthrop finished as the national runner-up. Turbeville was in Winthrop's inaugural Hall of Fame class in 2004. Now Kirby will follow his coach again when he is inducted on Feb. 27.
