A man synonymous with NAIA baseball, Ed Cheff, 34 year coach of the Lewis-Clark State Warriors announced Wednesday that he is stepping down, capping a career in which he led the Warriors to a record 16 NAIA World Series titles. Cheff, better known (to me and me alone) as Top Cheff, Iron Cheff, The Cheffmeister General and, my personal favorite, Cheff Boy-Ar-Dee posted a phenomenal 1,705-430-2 record.
Cheff will be replaced by Gary “No Nickname” Picone who will also retain his position as Lewis-Clark State’s Athletic Director.
For a tribute to this extraordinary coach that is more dignified than a slew of lame nicknames made up by some blogger the man never met be sure to visit the Lewis-Clark State athletics site at: http://www.lcsc.edu/athletics/
