It was the end of an era Friday as Whitman-Hanson High baseball coach Pat Cronin announced his retirement following the Panthers’ 1-0 loss at Bridgewater-Raynham.

Whitman-Hanson finished the season at 9-11.

Cronin leaves with 503 career wins, split between East Bridgewater (421) and W-H (82), in 41 seasons as a varsity coach (50 overall). The East Bridgewater resident played at Whitman-Hanson, winning a Class B EMass championship in 1965.

“I don’t like (focusing) on me,” he said of the milestone at the time. “You know what my favorite part of coaching is? During practices — in the cage or on the mound when I’m working with kids. That’s my favorite time. Or when I see kids like they did today making the big plays. I live for that stuff. That’s what I got growing up in Whitman. That’s what I got from all the coaches that I had — people who cared showing you how to do something and then just saying, ‘OK, just go have some fun.'”
