Miami Redhawks honors former basketball coach Charlie Coles

Charlie Coles

When Charlie Coles announced his retirement as head basketball coach at Miami University last March, most media members wondered if he could actually stay away from Millett Hall, home of the RedHawks.

Well, he has.

The 71-year-old Coles, who still resides in Oxford, Ohio, made his first appearance at a RedHawks game yesterday afternoon.

Miami  honored their long-time coach before the final regular-season home game against Kent State.

Coles retired after 16 seasons on the Miami bench with 263 wins. He is a 1965 graduate of the university.

Before settling in at Miami, Coles, who was always popular with media and fans of opposing Mid-American Conference schools, coached at Central Michigan for six years where he compiled a record of 355-308. While there, he coached Dan Majerle, who went to have an All-Star NBA career.

His 218 wins in MAC games are the most in conference history.

In a recent interview, Coles said that he spends his retirement helping coach his granddaughter Jazz’s sixth-grade AAU basketball team.

Miami RedHawks baseball honors the late Walter Alston

Press release courtesy of Miami sports information


OXFORD, Ohio — Miami Baseball  honored a local legend on Saturday May 5, when it hosted Walter Alston Day at McKie Field, remembering the former Darrtown resident and Los Angeles Dodgers manager. The RedHawks played host to the Akron Zips that day.

Representatives of Alston’s family, still living in Darrtown,  threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game. Also before the game, the Walter Alston Room at McKie Field was opened, allowing fans to see several pieces of memorabilia on display at the stadium.

Born Walter Emmons Alston on Dec. 1, 1911, he lettered three years for Miami in both baseball and basketball. He played professionally for the St. Louis Cardinals organization, playing just one game at the major league level. After stints in the minors as both a player and manager, Alston returned to the big leagues with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954, then moved with the team to Los Angeles.

Alston won seven National League pennants in his 23 years tenure as Dodgers manager. The franchise won four world championships as well — in 1955 with Brooklyn and in 1959, 1963 and 1965 with Los Angeles. Named Manager of the Year six times, Alston also guided a victorious NL All-Star squad a record seven times. He retired after the 1976 season with 2,063 wins (2,040 in the regular season and 23 in the postseason) and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 1983.

Usually before his Los Angeles Dodgers teams played a series in nearby Cincinnati against the Reds, Alston would ask the schedule-makers to have a day off.

During the day off, “Smokey” as he was called, would invite all of his coaches, players and team personnel up to his small hometown of Darrtown. The local natives would provide food and fun for the team.

Alston is still remembered today as Darrtown has signs on Route 177 entering the town announcing it as the Home of Walter “Smokey” Alston.

The Dodgers will be honoring the late manager in July at Dodger Stadium.

The Miami University Athletic Hall of Famer lived in Darrtown until his death on October 1, 1984.

Darrtown, Ohio is a small town in Butler County near the Miami campus located in Oxford.
