Fullerton, Calif. - The widow of former Cal State Fullerton baseball coach Bill Fulton as well as former players, students and colleagues in the kinesiology and health promotions department are establishing an endowment to fund a baseball scholarship for the Titans.
Jeannie Fulton and a committee of Coach Fulton's friends and colleagues have a goal of \$25,000 to provide the capital to fund a recurring scholarship for a deserving student-athlete in the college of health and human development.
Fulton passed away in 1994 after a bout with multiple sclerosis. He was the Titans' first intercollegiate baseball coach (1965-72) and laid the foundation for a program that has gone on to win four NCAA Div. I national championships and produce more than 40 major league players. He also taught a highly popular "Scrubbini" softball class for many years after that.
Fulton also was an active member of the community, setting an example for his student-athletes through volunteer work and church involvement.
