Kentucky's winningest active baseball coach reached another milestone Monday night.
Campbellsville University head coach Beauford Sanders collected his 900th career win with a 4-3 victory over Mid-South Conference foe Shawnee State.
In his 33rd year of coaching, Sanders raised his record to 900-686, a winning percentage of .567.
"Honestly and truthfully, I haven't really thought about 900," Sanders said afterward. "The big thing for us is playing better baseball and getting better at the plate. The most important thing is the team and how we're doing. I want the guys to feed off this."
Never miss a local story.
The victory came in the first game of a doubleheader, which Campbellsville split, falling 4-0 in the nightcap.
The Tigers (25-17 overall, 18-6 Mid-South Conference) had a four-game lead in the West Division entering Tuesday's games. They beat Mid-Continent 4-1 in the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday.
Sanders, 57, is 633-439 in 21 seasons at Campbellsville after going 268-247 at North Greenville (S.C.) Community College.
"The 900 is great, but it's because of players, situations and the assistant coaches," Sanders said. "I've been blessed and very fortunate to be along for the ride, I thank the good Lord for health and strength and the opportunity to build a decent program to be able to go to battle with."
