Two Panthers Named All-MSAC

June 12, 2017

All-MSAC player Charlie Hammel

All-MSAC player Garrett Hunter

Two Tompkins Cortland Community College players have earned spots on the Mid-State Athletic Conference baseball all-conference team. In voting by the coaches from the six MSAC programs, Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) and Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) were selected for the 15-player team.

Hammel was second on the team with a .397 batting average and his .489 on-base percentage was second on the team and the third best in program history. He also was second on the team with four doubles and 19 runs scored.

Hunter led the team with a .419 batting average, the fourth best season average in program history. He set a new Panthers record with five hits in one game and his .490 on-base percentage is the second best in program history.

His presence in our program will only help others around him and his leadership will be looked to during his time in Dryden.

Panthers Split Doubleheader to Close Season

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team closed the 2017 season with a doubleheader split with Corning Community College Thursday. The Panthers won the opener 4-3 in extra innings before dropping game two 9-4. Tompkins Cortland ends the season with a record of 15-22 overall and 10-17 in the West Division, good for sixth place in the nine-team division. Corning ends the year 8-30 overall and 5-25 and in eighth place in the West Division.

Starting pitcher Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) threw well enough to win in the opener, but didn’t factor in the decision. The sophomore allowed just two runs over the first seven innings, but was on the hook as the Panthers trailed 2-1 heading to the bottom of the seventh inning. In the seventh, Laz Moralez (Green Run H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) led off with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Alex Evans (Stillwater H.S./Stillwater), and came in to score on a double by Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.). With the score tied at 2-2, the Panthers stranded Perez on third to end the seventh and send the game to extra innings.

In the top of the eighth, Corning regained the lead and threatened to put up a crooked number. Morgan hit the first batter of the inning before turning the ball over to relief pitcher Ryan Farley (Cornwall H.S./Cornwall). The next two batters had singles, but Farley was able to limit the damage to a single run by striking out one batter and getting the final two outs in the infield.

Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) opened the bottom of the eighth with a single, and when Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) reached on an error, the Panthers had the winning runs on base with no outs. The tying run came in on a ground out and, after a fly out, Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) delivered a clutch, two-out RBI to drive in Hunter with the game winner.

Hunter and Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each had two hits in the win.

Corning never trailed in game two, taking early lead with single runs in the second and third and then stretching the lead with four in the fifth. A three-run seventh sealed the win for the visitors because, despite scoring in four different innings, Tompkins Cortland could only plate a single run each time.

Hunter and Miccuci each had another multi-hit game, with Hunter going 3-for-3 and Miccuci going 2-for-4 with a double. Hammel went 2-for-3 three in the nightcap.

Coaches–Men's Baseball

Ryan Stevens

Head Coach

Ryan Stevens

Ryan Stevens has finished two seasons as head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at Tompkins Cortland from 2006 to 2010, took over as head coach for the 2014-15 academic year. His teams have shown steady progress and the program is poised to take the next step.

Stevens has built an impressive resume since starting his coaching career during his first stint at Tompkins Cortland. While on the Dryden campus he was the Panthers’ pitching coach and recruiting coordinator, helping build a brand new program into a playoff team. His time at the College coincides with the best four-year stretch in the program’s history, culminating with an NJCAA regional playoff appearance in his final season.

In 2008 he entered the world of professional baseball, taking a job with the Texarkana Gunslingers of the Independent Professional Continental Baseball league. After two years and a league championship with the Gunslingers, Stevens took his first head coaching job with the Alpine Cowboys of the Pecos League, an independent professional league based in Texas with teams through the southwest. In five seasons as the manager of the Cowboys, Stevens has led the team to the postseason each year, capturing two league championships and posting an overall record of 208-119. He was named the Pecos League Manager of the Year, and has helped more than 50 players earn promotions to higher levels of professional baseball, including one, Jonathan Edwards, who is on a major league roster (Texas Rangers, pitcher). Two other of his players signed contracts with Major League affiliates: David Valesente (Pittsburgh Pirates organization, catcher) and Andrew Wall (Washington Nationals organization, pitcher).

Stevens, who also worked as an associate scout in the West Texas region for the Washington Nationals, served as an assistant coach at Ithaca College during the 2013-14 school year. He is a Dryden native, graduating from Dryden High before playing collegiate baseball at SUNY Cobleskill and Frostburg State University (Maryland).

Billy Crowe

Assistant Coach

2017 is Crowe's third year on the coaching staff, working with the catchers and infielders. A conference all star while at Bath-Haverling High, Crowe played two seasons at Tompkins Cortland, earning all-MSAC honors before finishing his collegiate career at Virginia Wesleyan University. He played professionally for two seasons under Coach Stevens with the Alpine Cowboys and coached at Cox High in Virginia Beach before joining the Panthers staff.
