Hall-of-Famer Ronnie Baynes: Former Tallassee coach Ronnie Baynes was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday night. The five-time state champion baseball coach of THS was also successful at Central Alabama Community College with state and southeast regional titles.
It’s impressive to look at Baynes’ resume. It’s much more extensive than just a coach.
He played three sports while at Auburn University. He has been involved with football officiating since 1974 and rose to the top of the ladder in the National Football League as supervisor of officials.
Still, Baynes will also be known in Tallassee as the one who put THS baseball on the map. His legacy will forevermore be the standard for all who don the purple pinstripes will be measured.
