DESERVED! If you read all of the accolades and well wishes from Parents, Players, former players, Coaches and Media……….it turns out to be a BIG Duh!! Who else is even close. There is not a #2. The only thing I can remotely find wrong with Ralph is he was born in Alabama and roots for the Tide!
There are few if any in the last 2 Decades that have devoted more time, effort and dedication to the Farragut Admiral Baseball Program than Ralph Skinner. He has Coached JV. He has Coached the Freshman Team( the one year we had a Freshman Team). He was President of the Dugout Club. He is the voice of the Ads, in the Press Box, On the Radio, at Banquets and just about anywhere where people want to discuss Admiral Baseball. Just putting together the “walk up” music would drive most crazy!!
But above the dedication to the Ads is the class and dignity that Ralph carries and brings to people around him. . He is a role model to all the young men that have come to know Ralph as Admiral Players on and off the field. While doing all this for the Admirals, Ralph is very active at Middlebrook Pike UMC, signing in the Choir, church leader and ran the Church Basketball League for the 10+ years(He just this year gave that job up).
DESERVED……..No Doubt! RALPH SKINNER PRESS BOX
