When Penn's Greg Dikos reached the 600-victory plateau in his Penn High School coaching career, he joined some select company.

The Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association recognizes its members when they pass each century mark.

According to IHSBCA numbers entering the 2014 season, there were two dozen men with 600 or more career victories. Of that number, 13 were retired and one deceased.

Another 24 coaches had surpassed 500, with Hall of Famers Dikos and former Elkhart Memorial head coach and long-time Bethel College assistant Dick Siler being among them.
