OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The coach of the Oklahoma City University baseball team will be among those inducted into the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame.

NAIA officials yesterday released their 2006-2007 induction class, which includes Denney Crabaugh.

Crabaugh has coached the Stars for 17 years, earning 7 Sooner Athletic Conference titles, making seven trips to the NAIA World Series and going to the national championship game four years in a row.

NAIA officials say Crabaugh's teams have won nearly 75% of their games and his students frequently lead in graduation rates and grade point averages.
