Gilmore, 21 ex-Chants make Big South all-decade teams

ccubase-gilmore1000The Big South Conference concluded its 30th Anniversary celebration on Friday with the All-Decade Baseball Team announcements.

Coastal Carolina coach Gary Gilmore and former major-leaguer Kirt Manwaring were among 22 Chanticleers selected to one of the three Big South Conference All-Decade Baseball Teams, the league office announced Friday.

Gilmore, who played at Coastal Carolina before returning as its head coach in 1996, earned his 1,000th career coaching victory this season for the Chants. He was named the Big South coach of the last decade.

Manwaring, the first former Chant to make it to the majors, was drafted out of Coastal by the San Francisco Giants. He went on to catch for the Giants (1987–1996), Houston Astros (1996) and Colorado Rockies (1997–1999) before retiring after 12 seasons in the big leagues.

In 2013-14, the Conference announced its first-ever All-Decade Teams recognizing the student-athletes and coaches who excelled in their respective sport since the Conference’s founding in 1983.

A committee of Big South Conference administrators served as the official voting panel to determine the All-Decade Teams, with fan voting comprising 20 percent of the overall total.  The next All-Decade Teams will comprise the years of 2010-19.

Listed below are the All-Decade Teams for Baseball for the years 1986-89, 1990-99 and 2000-09.  Baseball became a Conference sport in 1986, and each team features six pitchers, five outfielders, six infielders, one catcher, one utility player, one designated hitter and one head coach.  In case of ties, additional honorees are included:
