Coach Stevens' Take: Alex is the younger brother of former Panthers baseball player Andrew Babcock, who has since continued his baseball and academic career at Wells College. Alex is a power hitter who will leaned on for middle-of-the-order production. He has a relentless work ethic and an excellent approach at the plate. We are excited to keep the Babcock bloodlines within our program. Alex will look to lock down the hot corner for the next two years for the Panthers, much like his older brother did the past two years.

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.

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.

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).

Playing on its home campus for the first time ever, the TC3 baseball team treated the home fans to a pair of wins Tuesday, blanking SUNY Canton 10-0 in the opener before pulling out a dramatic 6-5 win in game two. TC3 improves to 2-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference, 3-3 in Region III play and 3-10 overall. Canton falls to 0-4 in the MSAC and 3-7 both overall and in regional action.
 
Playing at TC3's new on-campus baseball park, the Panthers wasted little time in jumping ahead of the visiting Kangaroos in game one. After pitcher Mark Kinner (Marathon HS/Marathon) set down Canton in order in the top of the first, Tatsuya Hagiwara (Japan) led off the bottom of the inning with a double to left. After an out, Jesse Stiffen (Bishop Maginn HS/Selkirk) laced a double to the right field fence to score Hagiwara and give TC3 the early lead. After a walk and another out, Alfred Johnson (South Broward HS/Hollywood, Fla.) delivered a two-out RBI single to make it 2-0 after one inning.
 
Kinner again made short work of Canton in the second and the TC3 bats again came to life in the bottom of the inning, this time scoring two runs on three hits, including a double by Gordon Begent (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) and a two-run single by Eric Longwell (Avoca HS/Avoca). TC3 tacked on three more runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth. The game was called after Longwell led off the sixth with a single and scored on a double by Stiffen, making the score 10-0.
 
Kinner earned the complete game win, allowing just one infield hit while striking out five. Stiffen and Longwell each 3-for-4, with Stiffen driving in four and Longwell three. Hagiwara and Tomoyoshi Fujiwara (Japan) each rapped out two hits.
 
Game two opened with Canton scoring for the first time, pushing across an unearned run in the top of the first. The Panthers took the led in the bottom of the second as Morgan Allis (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) delivered a two-run double before coming around to score on a single by Hagiwara. The score remained 3-1 until the top of the fifth when Canton scored three on a bases-loaded single to take the lead at 4-3. Canton added another run in the top of the sixth, putting TC3 behind 5-3 with just six outs left in the game.
 
In the bottom of the sixth, TC3 responded. Andrew Foster (Cortland HS/Cortland) ripped a pinch-hit double to open the frame. After an out, Hagiwara singled and stole second, putting the tying runs in scoring position. After the second out, Stiffen delivered with a clutch single to tie the game. In the top of the seventh, TC3 pitcher Ryan Driscoll (Union Springs HS/Auburn) set Canton down without scoring, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.
 
In the bottom of the seventh, Stefan Whittenburg (Lansing HS/Groton), who had entered the game in the top of the inning, opened the inning ripped a triple to right center. Canton responded by intentionally walking the next two batters to load the bases and bringing Begent to the plate. With the infield in, Begent delivered a clean single to left to score the game winner.
 
Driscoll earned the complete game win, striking out seven while allowing just six hits and three earned runs. Stiffen went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Hagiwara finished 2-for-4 with one RBI.

The contest against Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville marked the return of the sport to TC3 after a 25-year absence.

The Panthers pulled to within 6-3 with a pair in the top of the fifth, and after keeping the home team off the board in the bottom of the frame, made it a one-run game with another two runs in the top of the sixth. The 6-5 score didn't last long, as Catonsville exploded for ten runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the game out of reach.
 
Gordon Begent (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) had a strong game at the plate, going 2-for-4 with three RBI. Alfred Johnson (South Broward HS/Hollywood, Fla.) went 2-for-3 with a double and one RBI and Jonathon Concepcion (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) finished 2-for-4 with one RBI.
