Former Texas coach Cliff Gustafson will be praised somewhere else: Dish-Folk Field

Cliff Gustafson’s family will be hosting a celebration of the life of the legendary Texas baseball coach next week at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Gustafson died early Monday morning of congestive heart failure at the age of 91.

Services will be held at 3:00 pm on January 12 at the stadium where Gustafson recorded many of his 1,466 wins as the then-best coach in college baseball history. He coached for 29 seasons and won two national championships and 22 Southwestern Conference titles.

The funeral will be open to the public – “even for Aggie,” his daughters said – followed by a reception at the Cliff Gustavson Pavilion in the right stand. According to his daughter Jill Gustafson Balderama, Coach Gus, as he was known to the Longhorn people, will be buried in the Texas State Cemetery in a private family ceremony at a later date.
