Baseball and Gas City will not be the same since Rick Atkinson “Coach A” left this world on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at the age of 73 after a tough battle with cancer.

Rick loved the game of baseball from a young age and never got tired playing, coaching, or watching the game. His other great love was his family, whether having family drop in and stay a while, listening to the chatter and laughter of his grandchildren or attending their activities.
