Fred Worth has been teaching at Henderson since 1991. He is an active member of the Mathematical Association of America and the Society for American Baseball Research. His main mathematical research interest is the expansive property and properties of self-maps of trees. His baseball research has included statistical topics, but his main interest is in documenting burial sites of major league baseball players. He has visited over 2200 baseball grave sites. He is also associate pastor of Twin Rivers Church of the Nazarene in Caddo Valley.
