HUNTINGTON, Ind. - With another softball and baseball season in the books, Huntington University head coaches Mike Frame and Doug Gower were presented with plaques to commemorate significant milestones in each of their respective coaching careers.

Coach Frame, having just wrapped up his 33rd year at the helm of the HU baseball program, notched his 800th career win in the opening round of the Crossroads League tournament with an 11-1 decision over Bethel College on May 6.

To date, Frame has accrued 805 wins against 666 losses and along the way has guided the Foresters to eight regular season conference championships and just as many tournament conference championships. His teams have earned three bids to the NAIA National Tournament. He has coached 12 NAIA All-Americans and five of his players have gone on to play professionally.

As the 13-year skipper of the HU softball program, Coach Gower picked up his 300th win on April 29 in the second game of a doubleheader against Spring Arbor. Gower currently carries an overall record of 300-266-2.

Gower has led Huntington to nine consecutive seasons of at least 20 wins. His resume also includes the program’s only two trips to NAIA Nationals and he boasts the program’s most wins in a season with 37 victories in 2016.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 274 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations.
