Grambling State University 1963 Home Jersey
History: Grambling State baseball coach Ralph Waldo Emerson Jones, known as “Prez” to his many adoring players and students, is an iconic figure in Grambling history. The grandson of a slave and the son of the first dean at Southern University, Jones began at Grambling (once known as the Louisiana Normal School) in 1926 as a Chemistry and Physics professor. Having been a former player in the Negro Leagues, the powers that be chose Jones to launch the school baseball team the same year. Good idea. Jones would go on to coach the Tigers for 51 years compiling a record of 816-218 including 6 Midwest Athletic titles and 5 Southwestern Athletic Conference titles. Grambling State is a historically black university (HBCU) located in Grambling, Louisiana. The Tigers currently play in the Western Division of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). Home games are played at Wilbert Ellis Field, located in, where else? - Ralph Waldo Emerson Jones Park. "Where everybody is somebody!"
