Keith Veale, the head coach of the Mount Vernon Nazarene College baseball team, is featured in the June 14th issue of Sports Illustrated in the "Faces in the Crowd" section.
Veale, who has compiled a 336-149 record in ten years at MVNC, guided the Cougars to a 40-15 overall record in 1999. The team also won their fourth National Christian College Athletic Association national title in the past five years and Veale was named the NCCAA National Coach of the Year for the fifth straight year.
