If you know baseball on the Space Coast, chances are you’ve heard of Ernie Rosseau.
“The Red Rooster” graduated from Satellite High School in 1969. After playing baseball at Brevard Community College, he would then play in the professional ranks in the St. Louis Cardinals organization.
After his professional career ended, Rosseau went into coaching where he would then become the head coach of the Brevard Community College (BCC) Titans in 1980.
He won a combined 735 games in his time as head coach.
“I am both honored and humbled, at the same time, and obviously this is the pinnacle and highlight of my coaching career,” said Ernie Rosseau.
“I also want to congratulate the other inductees going in with me. It is a tremendous class and it’s a privilege to be there with you.”
Rosseau coached at BCC (Brevard Community College) for 29 years and at one point would coach in the White Sox organization.
“We(Players) nicknamed his Sarge because he was so demanding, we played the game right and sticklers on fundamentals and here I am, managing the Giants (San Fransisco), and using the things I learned from Ernie.”
