August 2, 2013 : Liberty University Athletics
Construction crews placed a bust of Liberty baseball program founder and first head coach Al Worthington at the main entrance of the new Liberty Baseball Stadium on Friday, Aug. 2.
Worthington served as not only Liberty's first baseball coach from the start of the program in 1974 to 1986, but also was the school's athletics director from 1983 to 1989. He was inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame in 2010.
Worthington used the knowledge gained from 19 years of playing major league baseball and his passion for Christ to help him become one of Liberty's first coaching legends.
