One of best Yorktown softball coaches over a decade, Jeff Berger announces his retirement

YORKTOWN, Ind. — Jeff Berger had his letter of resignation written up, but he didn't send it until the last minute.

Berger, Yorktown's head softball coach, knew he was going to be retiring from his full-time job at CenterPoint Energy next year. He knew he and his wife were going to head down to northeast Tennessee where they have 270 acres of land waiting for them. Berger said he loves the outdoors, so having the choice to spend time in the woods and on the lake with no work-related responsibilities seems like a no-brainer, right?

But for Berger, the decision was harder than that.
