Cliff Shelton
Head Coach


Long time Greater Atlanta Christian School baseball coach, Cliff Shelton, will be stepping away from the diamond at the end of this season after thirty-two years of exemplary service. Along the way, Coach Shelton has earned the title of “the winningest” baseball coach in Gwinnett County history with a staggering 567 career wins. Under his leadership, the GAC baseball program collected 13 region championships, 5 region runner-ups, 3 final four appearances, and 4 state runner-ups. Forty-four of his former players accepted college scholarships to play baseball, five were drafted, and three went on to play professionally.

Director of Athletics, Dr. Tim Vick, states, “Coach Shelton has my admiration and respect along with countless other baseball coaches in the metro-Atlanta area. He has proven himself to be a man of integrity, caring more for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of his players than any baseball record. He is a coach who has emphasized to the hundreds of players privileged enough to play for him that there are life lessons that can be learned from baseball; but that baseball should not be the most important thing in one’s life."
