New Cassville baseball coach honored for college contributions

This has been a good year for Cassville's Danny Powers.

In April, Powers resigned as Cassville basketball coach to take the head coaching position of the Wildcat baseball program, and in June, he was elected into the MIAA Hall of Fame.

"I am honored and humbled to be included with several great athletes," he said. "I really don't have the right words to express my gratitude. Baseball was a game that rewarded my dedication, and I am thankful to have those experiences in my life."

Powers was named the Rawlings/ABCA National Player of the Year in 2005. He pitched collegiately at the University of Central Missouri.

While at CMU, he was First Team All-Conference twice, and an All-Regional Tournament Team selection three times, including being named MVP as a senior.

Powers holds the Mules' single-season record for wins (15) and is second in career victories (29). He also holds the school's records for strikeouts in a season (129) and career (277), and his 2.47 career earned run average is 10th in school history.
