The former Tigers mentor was recently inducted into the Georgia Dugout Club Hall of Fame in a ceremony held in Atlanta.
Womack, 54, said this was one of the most prestigious awards he has received.
I was really impressed because theres probably 1,000 coaches and I was one of five inducted, he said. I was shocked because I saw some of the people that were honored with me.
The former Rossville High football and baseball player had a lot of success during his tenure at Ringgold.
He was named region coach of the year seven times, won six region titles and his teams played in 12 state tournaments.
But he still remains humble and refuses to accept credit for his accomplishments.
Everything was great at Ringgold, Womack said. I just stepped in at a good time and we kept a run of real good ballplayers.
Many of his old friends still refer to him as Socky.
Womack also coached his son Tas, who hit over .300 while playing all of the infield positions and also pitched for his father. The younger Womack signed with Chattanooga State in 1998.
The Chattanooga State baseball coach at that time, Bob Brotherton, paid his former Rossville High teammate a compliment when he signed his son.
When one of the top all-time coaches in Georgia history sends his kid to play for you, that is flattering to your program, Brotherton said.
When Womack resigned in 1998 he left behind a record of 376 wins and 172 losses, and the baseball field at Ringgold is named after him.
Not only did his teams contribute a lot of hardware for the school trophy case, but many of his players made names for themselves on the diamonds after graduation.
The list of his college signees is a long one.
And the list of his professional baseball draftees are too vast to name them all too.
That list did included Kenny Henderson, the number five selection overall in the 1991 Major League draft. Henderson was the highest draft pick to ever play for the national baseball power Miami Hurricanes.
Other of his professional players included, Jesse Cross, Keith Linebarger, Roger Hackett, Billy Stephens, Eric
Alexander and Jeff Gordon.
Josh Gandy, the Tigers pitching coach now, was drafted in the 10th round by the Minnesota Twins and was a standout at the University of Georgia. Michael Langston signed with the University of Georgia and was selected by the New York Yankees in the 23rd round, and Judd Ross was picked in the 30th round by the Houston Astros.
Womack said he would like to thank several people that helped him throughout his career, including former Ringgold Athletic Director Don Patterson and administrators Ron Looney and Richard Clark.
He went on to thank coaches and friends Doug Cline, Eric Beagles, David Crownover, Steve McDaniel, Jerry Jones and the parents and all of the players that ever played for him
