Fullerton, Calif. - The Cal State Fullerton baseball program lost a member of its family Wednesday morning as Joe Horton, father of Head Coach George Horton, passed away at his home in Fullerton. He was 86 years old.
A huge Titan baseball fan, the elder Horton was seen less and less around Goodwin Field last season due to declining health, but kept up with the team's trek to Omaha via the internet, television and phoned in scoring updates.
This is a very sad day for the Titan family, and JB's presence will truly be missed.
Service arrangements for Mr. Horton will be released as soon as they become available.
