A leader in the Parkerburg baseball community was honored Saturday.

American Legion Post 15 manager Jim Goodwin was recognized for reaching a major milestone

Members of the post 15 baseball team presented Goodwin with a plaque for his 500th career win against Clarksburg Post 13 back in June.

Coach Goodwin had no idea he was getting the award and said he's excited to lead a team of guys that really cares about him on and off the field.

"Well I tell you it's a great honor. I'm a member of the American Legion Post 15, we have a great membership at the post. They support baseball and we're very fortunate to live in a community who is supporting baseball. The area coaches all played American Legion baseball," says Goodwin.

Goodwin says he's looking forward to continuing the winning tradition that the team has for years to come.
