Hall of Fame coach Fuller resigns Fairhope baseball post

Both eastern shore baseball teams now searching for new skippers

Posted

Both of Baldwin County Public Schools’ baseball teams on the Eastern Shore have head coaching vacancies after Fairhope Head Coach Stuart Fuller announced his resignation Thursday, June 16.

Daphne’s Brent Boyd announced his resignation at the end of May to take a job with Perfect Game as Director of Operations for the state of Louisiana.

Each coach guided a playoff run in their final years at the helm. For Fuller in Fairhope, it was the 19th postseason berth and 12th area championship in his 23rd year as skipper. Boyd and the Trojans missed the playoffs only one year in his tenure and he previously won a state championship with Spanish Fort in 2014.

Fuller closes this chapter as Baldwin County’s winningest coach with 582 victories – 565 in Fairhope and 17 at Baldwin County High – and a member of the Alabama Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021. He also previously won a state championship as head coach of Faith Academy in 1998.

“The lasting relationships we have made with families, assistant coaches, opposing coaches, umpires and school staff over the last 23 years are most special to Lanette and me,” Fuller wrote in a statement. “I owe a debt of gratitude to those that support our program in countless ways. I give thanks every day for the influence I have had on a generation of young men in our community. Although it might be odd next spring not wearing the blue and gold, we are excited for the opportunities that are in our near future.”
