Nine people will be joining the TSSAA Hall of Fame on April 15 and one of them is Pat Swallows. Swallows will be inducted for his contributions to the sport of baseball at the high school level in the state of Tennessee.
Swallows erected the baseball program at Livingston Academy in 1969 and was their head coach for more than thirty years. He also coached at Cookeville High School. His career record is 533-310.
Swallows also helped start the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association in 1992. Since 2012 he has also been the assistant director of the Tennessee Athletics Coaches Association.
Swallows joined UCSN to talk about his career, his favorite memories and what it felt like to get the call from the TSSAA.
