Burlington baseball coach Jim Curtin has officially announced his retirement. Curtin spent 52 years at the school and is just one of a handful of coaches with more than 600 wins (612) to his credit.
Below is a statement from Curtin:
It has been a true honor and privilege to have coached so many remarkable student-athletes. Throughout my career I have done my best to be a successful baseball coach, but more importantly serve as a role model for the young men entrusted to me. I have been truly blessed to perform a job I love in a community as great as Burlington. Over the course of six decades, I have made coaching baseball a key priority in my life. During that time, I never lost my enthusiasm for working with young people and my love of the game has never wavered. The decision to retire at this time was ultimately about my family and staying healthy for my 17 grandchildren.
