Jerry Miller, the original baseball coach at Snider passed away February 1, the team announced.

The Snider Baseball community was saddened to hear the passing of our first skipper ever," the official team account (@fwsniderbb) tweeted. "Thank you Coach Miller for all your years of support."

He was 88 years old.

Miller and assistant coach Adrian Deusler started the Panther baseball team in 1971. Snider's inaugural season started late, there was no regulation baseball diamond or pitcher's mound for the team and 95 players tried out. By the time he stepped away from the program in 1983, Miller won 182 games. Snider won three Summit Athletic Conference championships and three sectional titles. 

He taught at Snider from 1969 to 1992 and was science department chairman at North Side High School before that.
