Many of you knew Jim Hughes. As you probably know, he passed away suddenly last week. Jim was a long-time teacher and coach at Brookville and Franklin County High Schools.Jim is best known for his years as the baseball coach. In fact, he is a member of the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame. Hughes also coached basketball, cross country, and golf. Jim’s teams were fierce competitors and were very successful. Baseball coaches in the area know about his meticulous preparation of the baseball park for each game.I consider Jim as a friend and competitor from his coaching years. He will be sadly missed in the Wildcat Community.
