(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The only varsity baseball coach the Century Panthers have ever known is hanging up his spikes.
Keith Kangas announced his retirement from both teaching and coaching Thursday.
Kangas went to Century when the school opened in 1997, after spending 16 years at Mayo.
He led the Panthers to a state championship in 2003, and collected four Big 9 championships during his time at Century.
