“The love of teaching the game to these kids and sharing their passion is what has driven me these years,” TERRA baseball coach Ernie Padron said when he picked up his 500th win as the Wolves edged Hialeah Educational Academy 6-5 in the HSBN consolation game on Wednesday afternoon.

Padron’s impressive 25-year résumé is stacked with eight state championship appearances, including back-to-back state titles in 2004 and 2005 at Florida Christian, during his 15 year tenure.

This is his first year at TERRA (14-4), and he has the Wolves focused for the remainder of the season.

“They have come out and embraced my coaching style, and we will continue to improve and grow to try to move on to district playoffs. We have to hit on all cylinders,” he said.

TERRA finished 2-2 in HSBN tournament play.
