East Tennessee State basketball coach Steve Forbes went into the Southern Arkansas University Hall of Fame over the weekend, but it wasn’t for basketball.

Forbes was inducted for his exploits on the baseball field.

The Bucs third-year coach was a pitcher on the Muleriders’ 1987 team that went 46-7 and finished third in the NAIA World Series. The entire team was inducted into the Southern Arkansas Hall of Fame on Friday during the school’s homecoming weekend. Forbes attended the ceremony in Magnolia, Arkansas.
