We all remember or, at least, have heard or read of the great en masse migration of the Okies to California during the Dust Bowl years, but rarely do we hear of nor experience a Californian becoming a full-fledged Okie. But that's the story we heard at Tuesday's Okmulgee Lions Club meeting, presented by Bill Springman, who has recently been added as Okmulgee High School Assistant Baseball Coach.

But how in the wide, wide world of sports does small-town Okmulgee, Oklahoma attract a 24-year veteran coach at the high school level (Tulsa Union Head Baseball Coach), at the college level ( ORU, O.U., and Pepperdine University), and the professional level (Minnesota Twins, Kansas City Royals, and Detroit Tigers) ? Stay tuned, you're about to find out.

Springman told us that he had to develop good playing skills at a young age or else his older brothers wouldn't let him participate in the neighborhood pick-up sports games. His skills at shortstop were good enough during high school to earn him a Division 1 scholarship, and he set his sights on the University of Southern California (USC). However, the expense of that school far exceeded his construction father's ability to afford his attendance there.

Now, enter Oral Roberts University, offering Springman a full ride (scholarship), to the delight of his parents. Although he knew very little about Oklahoma, he decided to give it a try. Being raised in a church-going family, who demanded "yes,sir" and "thank yous", attending church (even without parents being there with their "prod" sticks) was a way of life.

Talk about culture shock--Springman could hardly believe how friendly and nice everyone was, people opening doors for you, shaking hands with you, even inviting you to have Sunday dinner with them after church, etc. But what really opened his eyes was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. I know you've already seen the handwriting on the wall, and, yes, of course, she became Mrs. Bill Springman--and has been for 42 years and three children later.

When the Detroit Tigers let 16 staff members "go", he was among the group. He didn't realize how tired he was of living out of suitcases for eight months out of the year. In his opening statements, Springman alluded to how he believes God has a plan for everyone and everything. Even with his garage-full of trophies and rings, he is really a mentor and teacher, which he believes all teachers have a calling, much like the ministry. And he really wanted to consider mentoring youth again.

Enter Coach David Dunlap. As a pre-teen, Dunlap had attended a baseball camp directed by Springman. Dunlap marveled at the knowledge and skill he learned from Springman. Suffice it to say, they have remained good friends, particularly when Springman was on the staff of Ron Gardenhire, Okmulgee's contribution to major league baseball. Dunlap had mentioned that Okmulgee High School had a baseball coaching vacancy when he was talking to Springman. A little later, they were again on the phone and Springman asked about the vacancy--it was still open. "I'll take it".

Springman was on the baseball staff of Pepperdine University when they won the College Baseball National Championship, and has been inducted into the ORU Hall of Fame. He has a Master's Degree in Education and his wife is also a teacher in the Jenks Public School System.

Even though they live in Tulsa, Springman commutes every day and says it is easy. He said Californians measure distance in time, not miles, because it might be only ten miles to get somewhere, but it will take you 45 minutes to get there because of the traffic. He is just proud to be doing what he is doing and he really bragged on all the Okmulgee staff he has met.

With his Godly upbringing and beliefs, Springman would be the coach I would want for my kids if I still had kids in school.

As Springman believes the teaching profession is a calling, the Okmulgee Lions also believe in calling--so, don't make us have to call you to give us a visit any Tuesday at noon at the Trinity Lutheran Church. "WE SERVE".
