Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - He's a treasure to the sports landscape in the Fargo-Moorhead area and he's about to rack up another milestone to what's been a terrific career.

Concordia baseball coach Bucky Burgau is sitting on 699 career wins in his final season and has a chance to reach the 700 win plateau Wednesday.

Burgau announced back in October that this would be his final season and he's not ready to reminiscence or be sentimental just yet.

Bucky Burgau/ 699 Career Wins: “I'm more excited about the present, I’m excited about all the guys who played for us in the past. I think that’s more of a testimony to all the good players that have come through here. I don't want anything to take away from the focus of this group right now and maybe next year or the year after, when I can't put on the uniform, but it's significant but it’s not. I'm juiced about this group of guys and this season you bet I am.”

The Cobbers host Minnesota-Morris tomorrow in Moorhead, Burgau can become the 12th D-3 coach to reach 700 wins, and just the 3rd in Minnesota.
