    CCH's Krumpelbeck and 1,000 wins

    Covington Catholic baseball coach Bill Krumpelbeck is within 10 wins of achieving 1,000 career wins as head coach. He is in his 42nd season as head coach. Only three coaches in Kentucky have 1,000 career wins in baseball (stats do not include 2018 results):

    Larry Gumm, Green County, 44 years ..... 1006-493
    Mac Whitaker, Harrison County, 40 years.. 1085-330
    Bill Miller, Pleasure Ridge Park, 38 years .. 1132-304 (recently passed away)

    CCH has 12 regular season games left plus postseason. Odds are Coach Krumpelbeck gets 1,000 this season. Let the countdown begin.

    I believe that is accurate. I am basing this off of the khsaa.org stats and CCH's record so far this year.

    I would like it if someone would verify accuracy of these numbers.

    44, 42, 40, 38 years - man, that's a long time coaching baseball. I was an assistant coach for five years and it was a struggle. I'm impressed with the dedication show by each of these four men, among others, and the impact they've had on so many kids' lives.

    He's been coaching long enough that one of his former players, Ryle's Pat Roesel (CCH '87), now has 500 wins under his belt.

    I wonder how many total varsity wins his former players have.

    I would be utterly shocked if it didn't outnumber him by a good amount. Coach Krumps is a great gut. He teaches fundamental baseball with the skill that not many have, similar to the style that he teaches the fundamentals of biology. There's nothing fancy about the way that he teaches either, but there's no denying that when you finish with his biology class or with his baseball program, that you have as sound a fundamental grasp on what he has taught you as anyone out there.

    Besides Rosel what other coaches are on the coaching tree?

    Arlo
    Bieger
    Jeremy Collins

    Was Eckerle the head coach in his New Cath days? I knew that he coached baseball there, but I didn't realize he was the skipper.

    Eckerle was the head coach at NCC for a few seasons before probably 3 at the most. Then left for Cov Cath to teach.

    I trust that these totals are correct too. Cov Cath has kept accurate, “copious and voluminous” sports records for a long, long time.

    993 wins and counting. Win #1000 may come against Coach Roesel, as Ryle is on the schedule for the last two regular season games.

    Win #1? 7-3 over Holmes in 1977.

    Cov Cath is 2-0 against Highlands, 1-0 against Campbell County, and 2-0 against Ryle this season.

    They are yet to have faced Beechwood, New Cath or Boone County this season. The Colonels are currently standing at 19-7-0, the Tigers are at 16-7-0, the Breds are at 14-8-0, and the Rebels are at 11-8-0.

    CovCath is actually now 20-7 on the season. This is the 32nd consecutive year of 20+ wins for Krumpelbeck.
