Billy Swoope'76 Inducted into Tidewater Baseball Shrine by Norfolk Tides

The Norfolk Tides inducted four new members including our very own alumnus, Billy Swoope ’76, into the Tidewater Baseball Shrine on August 21 at Harbor Park.
Billy Swoope, Crusader Athletic Hall of Fame Inductee of ’88 and father of Jeffrey Swoope '12 and Steven Swoope '12, was a baseball standout at Norfolk Catholic High School. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers as a catcher in the 1976 draft. He played six years in the Dodgers and Pittsburgh Pirates systems before continuing his baseball career as the Head Coach at Virginia Wesleyan College, where he was named the 1985 Division 3 NCAA Coach of the Year. He served as an Assistant Coach at VCU and a Head Coach at Virginia State University before moving on to serve as a scout in the Chicago Cubs organization - a position that has resulted in over 15 players being selected in the Major League draft. Congratulations on your achievement Billy Swoope!
