Former New Orleans Boosters manager Joe Scheuermann has been elected into the National Junior College Athletic Association Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. The vote was announced during last week’s annual ABCA Baseball Coaches Convention in Dallas.
Now in his 29th season as the head coach at Delgado Community College, Scheuermann continues a proud family tradition while continuing to build an impressive record of achievements as one of Louisiana’s longest tenured and most respected baseball coaches.
As he approaches his 1,000th win at Delgado, his 971-483 overall win/loss record makes him the most-winningest junior college coach in the State of Louisiana.
On learning of his selection to the Hall of Fame, Scheuermann said, “This is a tremendous honor that I share with my family, my coaches and players, and our entire Delgado family. This would have never been possible without the constant support that I have received on and off the field through the years. This is about WE, not just about ME. Thanks to everyone who had a part of my nomination and selection.”
Scheuermann was inducted into the AAABA Hall of Fame in 2007. His father, the late Louis “Rags” Scheuermann was a member of the inaugural AAABA Hall of Fame Class of 1994.
