Books For Binns
Baits, an outstanding member of the Bucks’ basketball teams in 1983-84 and 84-85, holds multiple spots in the school’s all-time record book. He chose to honor the late Binns Jordan for Jordan’s contributions to the athletic history of the college. Jordan was the first radio broadcaster of Motlow athletics when the school opened in 1969, and also worked at the college bookstore in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Jordan, who passed away in February, was a sports analyst and talk show host on our sister station WHMT, The Ticket sports radio in Tullahoma.
“I think it is important to recognize Binns as being the first to broadcast Motlow athletics,” said Baits, who now lives in Christiana. “Furthermore, he was a pillar in the local sports community and was either broadcasting, umpiring, driving the bus, lining the field or keeping the stats at thousands of events. He is a Tullahoma sports legend.
The books Baits chose, Wooden: A Coach’s Life by Seth Davis and The College Football Book from Sports Illustrated, will be specially marked to indicate the project and then put into circulation.
