Tommy Thomson is entering his twentieth season as a volunteer assistant baseball coach at Armstrong Atlantic State.
Serving the Pirates whenever his local business interests allow, Thomson's primary area of instruction with AASU has been as a hitting instructor.
In his nineteen seasons, the Pirates have posted an overall record of 814-354 (.695). The personable assistant has certainly been a key factor in the Pirates offensive showing during his tenure.
The Savannah native coached baseball for many years in the local youth leagues. After serving two years as an assistant with a local American Legion team, Thomson took over the head coaching duties and guided his teams to state championships all three years that he served in that capacity.
A premier bowler, Thomson graduated from Savannah High School in 1954. He is married to the former Carolyn Ihly of Savannah. The couple has two children, Lisa, 39 and Curtis, 37, and they have a pair of grandchildren by each child.
