Grand Ledge Baseball Coach in Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame
Veteran Grand Ledge Comet baseball coach Pat O'Keefe will be one of 10 entering the Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame today. After three years chasing his major league dreams with the Houston Astros, Pat O'Keefe saw the writing on the wall.
O'Keefe went on to stay at Grand Ledge permanently and has had a great career that's been a lifelong love affair. That love affair for O'Keefe has included a state record 1,190 wins in 47 seasons leading the Grand Ledge baseball program.
Pat O'Keefe is among an elite group to be enshrined into the Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooley Law School Stadium prior to the Lansing Lugnuts contest against Wisconsin.
O'Keefe was to join John Smoltz, Al Kaline, Alan Trammell, Charlie Gehringer, Hal Newhouser, Bill Freehan, Jim Abbott, Ernie Harwell and fellow prep coach Larry Tuttle in the hall's inaugural class.
