Two-time Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year Larry Sudbrook has won more than 450 games in 21 seasons as St. Bonaventure University's head baseball coach. Twenty-two of those have come this year, when the team started 2-7 and suffered a 2-6 stretch in midseason before rebounding to win seven of its last nine.
St. Bonaventure's beat nationally ranked Charlotte in the first of a three game series on Friday, but the more pressing news was Sudbrook's detention at Buffalo Niagara International Airport on Thursday on charges that he tried to bring a gun through security.
The Associated Press did not note whether the handgun, which was found in one of Sudbrook's bags, was loaded. It is legally owned. Immediately following the incident, the school released a statement that said Sudbrook "forgot the gun was being stored in that bag."
Way to keep track of your weaponry, Larry. Does anyone else enjoy excuses like that as much as I do?
