A Message from the Coach

Welcome to JMU baseball. We have three goals here at JMU that we strive for year in and year out. 1. To get a great degree from a great university. The academics at JMU are nationally ranked and a degree from JMU is priceless. 2. To win championships. JMU baseball has a storied tradition and has the highest winning percentage in the state of Virginia. Most recently in 2008 and 2011, the Dukes won the CAA championship and played well in the NCAA regionals. We have won many regular season championships and have attended several NCAA tournaments, including 1983 when the Diamond Dukes advanced to the College World Series. JMU was the first university in Virginia to reach Omaha. 3. To play at the next level. JMU leads the state and the CAA in number of players who have had the opportunity to play professional baseball. JMU has produced 86 players in its 41-year existence who have gone on to play professionally, with 11 of those reaching the Major Leagues. In 2010, we moved into brand-new Veterans Memorial Park. The new state-of-the-art facility houses the entire program and all of its needs, including locker rooms, training rooms, weight room, team room, study hall area, coaches offices, and indoor workout space. The facility is a tremendous step in the growth of our program. It’s an exciting time for JMU baseball as we continue to take great strides to build our program. Go Dukes!

2012 JMU Baseball - 1

THIS IS JMU BASEBALL This is JMU Baseball Past, Present, and Future

James Madison University’s baseball program has been in existence for 36 seasons at the NCAA Division I level. In that short amount of time, the program under the direction of first head coach Brad Babcock, head coaches Ray Heatwole and Kevin Anderson, and currently head coach Joe “Spanky” McFarland has been a player in the Colonial Athletic Association, regionally and on the national level. With two CAA tournament championships, seven conference regular season championships, nine NCAA regional appearances and a trip to Omaha for the College of World Series, the program truly is stacked with winning tradition. Being hidden away in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of western Virginia hasn’t kept professional baseball scouts from discovering the wealth of quality athletes in the JMU baseball program. More than 86 players have had the opportunity to play at the next level, with 11 players reaching Major League Baseball. Teamwork is a staple at JMU, yet there have been several baseball players who have won individual awards along the way. JMU has produced 17 All-Americans, 11 freshmen All-Americans, and 57 All-East Region players. Both Eddie Kim and Kellen Kulbacki were two-time CAA Player of the Year honorees along with 2011 winner Jake Lowery. Kulbacki was tabbed the National Division I Player of the Year after his amazing 2006 season while Lowery was named National Hitter of the Year and the Johnny Bench Award winner as the nation’s top catcher. With the CAA celebrating its 25th year in 2010, Kulbacki, Kim, Greg Miller, and Dana Allison were named to the league’s 25th anniversary team. Academically, JMU has grown from a small college to a major university that is highly rated by all of the publications whose job it is to rank the various aspects of higher education. Going into the 2012 season, 18 of 29 players return from a squad that won the CAA regular season and tournament titles in 2011. The Dukes return six field starters and three starting pitchers. The returning experience is highlighted by All-CAA returners in outfielder Johnny Bladel, first baseman Matt Tenaglia, infielder Ty McFarland and pitcher Sean Tierney along with reliever D.J. Brown. With a young but talented pitching staff and great team speed, the pieces are in place for big things for JMU baseball in 2012. The fall season was tremendously successful, on the field, in the classroom, and in the weight room, as the present team as a group got after it and worked extremely hard. It’s not easy to be a member of the JMU baseball program. There are 6 a.m. workouts, challenging academics, and long, hard practices that will test even the most committed. The lessons learned are invaluable and will carry you through life. The future of the JMU baseball program is bright. This year will be the third for a brand new, state-of-the-art facility in Eagle Field at Veterans Memorial Park. The coaches’ offices, locker room, team room, weight room, training room, and indoor practice facility have been relocated to Memorial Hall, which is located about 100 yards from the new stadium. This is a giant step toward the goal of James Madison University taking a leap forward in the national rankings in baseball. I invite you to learn more about our program by visiting our web page at JMUSports.com or by attending one of our outstanding summer or winter camps. My staff and I look forward to spending time with you as you make your academic and athletic choices in the near future. Sincerely,

Coach Mac Joe “Spanky” McFarland, Head Coach

VETERANS MEMORIAL PARK • In the early spring of 2010, JMU completed construction on a $9.5 million baseball and softball complex located next to Memorial Hall. • Project included a $1 million interior renovation to Memorial Hall that covered new offices for coaches, locker rooms, team rooms, areas for strength and conditioning as well as sports medicine, indoor practice space, and batting cages. • Stadium includes lights, press box, sunken dugouts, chair-back seating, and state-of-the-art sound system. • Playing surface consists entirely of Field turf with the exception of pitching mound and home plate. • Built on the same site as the old Veterans Memorial Stadium, which opened in 1949. The stadium name endured in order to honor all veterans of foreign wars from Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. • Facility entrance includes a monument to war veterans. The monument was dedicated on Veterans Day weekend in the Fall of 2009. • The playing surface was dedicated as Eagle Field on April 10, 2010 in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The field is named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Rodney Eagle, former mayor of Harrisonburg. • Host site of the 2012 and 2013 Virginia 529 Colonial Athletic Association Championships

“I think the new facility is one of the top facilities in the CAA and the entire Mid-Atlantic region. We look forward to taking the next step in the growth of our program.” Spanky McFarland JMU baseball head coach

TRADITION

College World Series 29th Anniversary For as long as baseball is played at James Madison University, the 1983 season will always hold a special significance in the history of one of JMU’s most successful athletic programs. The Dukes opened the season with an exhibition doubleheader against the defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals, won the NCAA Eastern Regional championship, competed in the College World Series and had four players chosen in the Major League Baseball draft. JMU received an at-large bid to the NCAA Eastern Regional where the Dukes stunned a strong field to become the first Virginia team to qualify for the College World Series.

JMU was the first school and one of two from Virginia to reach the CWS

JMU, which compiled a 37-13 record, was among the final entries selected for the 36-team NCAA field, and the Dukes silenced any critics with their on-field performance. JMU upset top-seeded South Carolina 9-4 in the opener of the six-team tournament and used timely hitting, consistent pitching and solid defense to compile a 4-0 regional record. After the win over South Carolina, the Dukes defeated ECAC South Tournament champion William and Mary (13-8), Southern Conference winner The Citadel (5-2) and East Coast Conference champion Delaware (6-5). Having advanced to the College World Series, the Dukes faced two of the nation’s top three teams in Omaha, Neb. The CWS field of eight teams included several future major leaguers, including Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Barry Larkin, Pete Incaviglia, Dave Magadan, and Chris Sabo. The Dukes fell to Texas and CWS Most Outstanding Player Calvin Schiraldi 12-0 before being eliminated by Stanford 3-1.

Members of the 1983 team held a 25th anniversary reunion Sept. 15, 2007 during a JMU home football game.
