  • Long time, Idaho Falls Chukars Travel Baseball Coach, Matt “Horse” Virgil passed away on December 5, 2023 at the age of 48.
  • Matt was an advocate for kids in sports and enjoyed coaching and watching his own kids in baseball, football and soccer. When putting together his last 8U team, Matt told the parents that we may never win a game but we will learn to play the game right. Matt taught fundamentals and respect for the game.
  • Matt believed that baseball was a way of life and that your baseball family would be your friends forever. How right he was. If you had the privilege of knowing Matt, you knew him by his nickname “Horse”.
  • Horse has left us way too soon, will be missed every day and will forever be in our hearts.
