Ron Vincent has put together the most wins ever for a North Carolina high school coach in the sport of baseball. Vincent, a native of Greenville, graduated from J.H. Rose High School in 1965 and then from East Carolina University in 1969. Then he embarked on his remarkable teaching and coaching career, all in Pitt County as well. He coached for four years at Farmville Central and then came to Rose in 1973. Since that time he has built the Rampants into a perennial power, guiding his teams to an amazing record of 800-216, including a host of championships at various levels. Rose has won a total of six NCHSAA state baseball titles under Vincent, including crowns in 1975, 1997, ’99, 2003, ’04, and ’08. Vincent is a member of St. James United Methodist Church in Greenville and has served on the Greenville Babe Ruth Board of Directors.
