The Baseball World has lost a great treasure of a coach. John Devore was the best of the best as a Dekalb County Baseball Coach. John and I had many phone conversations over the years of coaching against one another. He always had something good to say about you and if you were down, he knew how to pick you back up! John had a lot of pride in his baseball teams, his baseball fields, and as a lot of folks knew he had great integrity. My heartfelt sympathies go out to Mrs. Devore, Dusty, and the entire Devore family. I know that as a coach's wife and a coach's son, there were a lot of sacrifices to be made over the years. Thank you for sharing John with all of us. I will truly miss him!
