    Default Bruce Winkworth

    Bruce Winkworth passed away from cancer on Friday, 17 May 2019. He was the NC State baseball SID, and an NC State alumnus. But, for me, he was much more than that. I had the pleasure to work with Bruce for a few years on the NC State newspaper, The Technician. Bruce was a columnist and sports reporters while I was the news and opinion editor. I merely dabbled in journalism and majored in the US Air Force. Bruce was clearly a professional journalist even then. He was also a very thoughtful, professional, and kind person. He remained that way his entire life. After we both graduated, I learned that Bruce was hired as a writer for a baseball publication, but he then found his way back home on the NC State Athletic Department staff, and he never looked back. He was the color commentator for Wolfpack baseball radio broadcasts before becoming the SID.

    There could not have been a more perfect match than for Bruce to become the NC State baseball SID. He loved baseball, giving us something in common, though his knowledge of the sport vastly exceeded most everyone else's.

    Farewell, Bruce, you will be greatly missed!

    RIP, he meant more to the baseball team than many knew.
    "You have to understand, I grew up a NC State fan. Every State-Carolina basketball game, football game, I've been there. It's fun, and if you like to competing and I love competing... that will be extra special."
