On the weekend of Friday, December 19, the 3-day long Turtle Thomas Baseball camp was held at our Glaciers Dome facility and was an overall success with a great turn out. Turtle Thomas has been an assistant coach for two College World Series champions and began his career in 1977 at T. Wingate Andrews High School. He was also assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Georgia Tech in 1986 and '87. Thomas became assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Miami in 1988, helping the team to nine College World Series trips in 12 years!
Thomas had 19 straight recruiting classes in Collegiate Baseball’s top 10 from 1988-2006. No other recruiting coordinator in the country had the #1 class four times, as he did. During his years as a recruiter, Thomas brought over 60 major leaguers to his schools, including Charles Johnson, Pat Burrell, Alex Fernandez, Danny Graves, Aubrey Huff, Aaron Hill and Brad Hawpe. He became a head coach for the first time in 2007, when he took over the helm at Florida International University.
