WEST VIRGINIA BASEBALL

IN THE SPOTLIGHT Choosing to become a Mountaineer is special. Without a professional sports team in the state, folks across the state and throughout the region love West Virginia University athletics. No school helps its student-athletes more than the people at WVU. Mountaineers have the unique opportunity to represent themselves, their teammates and their university to news media, alumni, friends, family and the general public. Your interaction with these groups is also part of your educational process. If you take advantage of these opportunities, it can have a positive effect, not only on your career as a student-athlete at West Virginia, but also on your life after you have donned the Old Gold and Blue.

MOUNTAINEERS IN THE PROS Being a professional baseball player and playing for West Virginia has been synonymous since the Mountaineers sent their first player to Major League Baseball in 1895. Since Jake Hewitt pitched for the Pirates that season, WVU has had 20 MLB players, with the most recent being David Carpenter, who made his debut with the Houston Astros last season. Carpenter finished the season with a 2.93 ERA in 34 games, allowing just nine runs in 27.2 innings pitched and striking out 29. Under Van Zant, Carpenter became the fifth player to advance to the big leagues. Overall, Van Zant has 50 players who have either been drafted or signed free agent contracts, including Grant Buckner who was drafted in the 26th round of the 2011 draft by the Chicago White Sox and AllAmerican Jedd Gyorko, who was picked in the 2010 second round by the San Diego Padres. Buckner was voted as the “Best Pure Hitter” in the White Sox 2011 draft class by Baseball America. Buckner finished last season batting .311 with 39 runs, five home runs and 36 RBIs while playing for Bristol in the Rookie League. Buckner led the team in batting average and was named the team MVP. Gyorko was named the No. 6 prospect in the Padres organization and was named the “Best Hitter for Average,” according to Baseball America after completing his second season of pro ball. Gyorko split the 2011 season between Class A Lake Elsinore and Class AA San Antonio. In 576 at-bats, Gyorko had a minor league leading 192 hits, 25 home runs, 114 RBIs, a batting average of .333 and an on-base percentage of .400. Gyorko settled for batting titles in the Cal League (.365) and Arizona Fall League (.437). Tyler Kuhn was named the “Best Hitter for Average” in the White Sox organization by Baseball America after batting .333 in 2011, splitting time with Class AA Birmingham and Class AAA Charlotte. Kuhn had 168 hits, 32 doubles, 11 triples and 55 RBIs throughout the season. Vince Belnome (Padres) and Tobias Streich (Minnesota Twins) also are representing WVU in the minor leagues, with Belnome being named a Baseball America Class AA All-Star. Belnome played an injury-shortened season with San Antonio and batted .333 in 75 games to go with 56 runs, 19 doubles, 17 homers and 62 RBIs. Streich played with Beloit in Class A and batted .212 in 71 games with four home runs and 16 RBIs.

HISTORY OF SUCCESS Since the West Virginia baseball team began in 1892, the Mountaineers have been fortunate to have gathered over 1,950 wins under the direction of 18 coaches. WVU has had 20 Major League Baseball players, 12 NCAA Tournament appearances, 11 All-Americans, three first team AllAmericans and one United States Olympian, one regular season BIG EAST Championship and one BIG EAST Tournament Championship. Earning his 500th career win in 2011, coach Greg Van Zant became only the fourth coach of any sport at WVU to surpass 500 wins. Joining Van Zant in this exclusive category is his predecessor, Dale Ramsburg. Ramsburg coached from 1968-94 and compiled a career record of 540-389-9 (.576) to mark the most victories among any coach all-time at WVU. Jedd Gyorko, arguably WVU’s greatest all-time player, finished his career as a two-time all-BIG EAST first team player holding top-five career marks in several other offensive categories, including base hits (281), RBIs (178), walks (92), runs scored (207) and multiple-hit games (89). He is also on the top-five in single-season base hits (96 in 2009, 95 in 2008), RBIs (63), runs scored (74 in 2009, 71 in 2010) and multiple-hit games (31 in 2009, 30 in 2008). Gyorko became WVU’s first three-time All-American being named to the Louisville Slugger second team in 2010. He was named a Brooks Wallace Award finalist in 2009, and won the award in 2010 as the nation’s best shortstop.

CAPERTON INDOOR FACILITY Opened in August 1998, the Caperton Indoor Practice Facility is one of the best indoor practice buildings in the country. “The Caperton Indoor Facility is a big plus for all of our athletes at West Virginia,” coach Greg Van Zant says. “It’s versatile and eases all our minds when it comes to bad weather. “There have been times through the years when we just weren’t able to practice or do the things we needed to do because of bad weather. There were times when we had to come off the field or halt practice for a period of time because of the weather conditions, but that’s not the case now. The IPF takes care of all those worries. The grass is always green in our indoor practice facility.” Located adjacent to Milan Puskar Stadium at Mountaineer Field, the Caperton Indoor Practice Facility is equipped with a major league playing surface with the total length of the facility from wall to wall of 315 feet and it is 225 feet wide. The Mountaineers’ sparkling indoor facility exceeds 75,000 square feet of practice room where safety netting surrounds the entire playing field. Four state-of-the-art major league style batting cages drop out of the ceiling with the push of a button. Each batting cage is 70 feet long, 15 feet wide and 35 feet high. The dimensions allow for pitchers to face hitters in live situations. Also, nine indoor pitching mounds are equipped in the facility and two full infields can be set up. Room for outfielders to make game-like throws is also available. In fact, there is enough room for a full round of infield/outfield during practice sessions. Locker rooms for male and female athletes are in the facility along with a fully equipped training room, restrooms, 4,500 square feet of storage and a facilities office. Named in honor of former governor Gaston Caperton, the facility gives West Virginia’s student-athletes a safe and secure practice home away from the inclement weather. The Caperton Indoor Practice Facility gives West Virginia University yet another component in one of the finest baseball complexes in the nation.

HAWLEY FIELD Hawley Field, home of the Mountaineer baseball team since 1971, is evolving into one of the top college baseball facilities in America. Improvements to the facility have become almost an obsession to coach Van Zant, who has invested a great deal of time and effort to the cause. In the spring of 2006, a 100 foot wide by 40 foot high batters eye was constructed behind the centerfield fence. This solid, dark green structure makes it easier for hitters to see the ball out of the pitchers’ hand. Plans are also in the works for new dugouts and a clubhouse behind the first base dugout. Major improvements were made to the playing surface at Hawley Field after the 2005 season making it one of the nicest places to play college baseball. A new state-of-the-art drainage system was installed in the outfield and foul territories. The infield received a completely new playing surface. The ballpark got a new warning track made of crushed red shale bordering the fences. According to Van Zant, these major-league quality improvements now make the playing surface one of the best in Division I. In the last few years, the Mountaineers expanded their outdoor batting cages and put down AstroPlay (a grass-like synthetic surface that is also on Mountaineer Field) to make it one of the finest outdoor cages in the nation. Also, 50 white pine trees were planted behind the outfield fence from the left field foul pole to the right field foul pole to enhance the beauty of the field and give better depth perception to the players. A five-foot wide Astroturf halo around the home plate area with “Mountaineers” written in gold with navy trim has also been added, signifying the home of West Virginia baseball. It’s fair to say the ballpark that stands there today isn’t the same one cleared off after the construction of the WVU Coliseum in the late 1960s. Many improvements and changes have happened to the ball yard since its first game in 1971, one expenditure being a modern outfield fence with signage that cost more than $60,000. In 2001, a state-of-the art lighting system that cost more than $260,000 was constructed with the help of baseball alumni and friends. Those two projects are among a series of improvements made to the field over the last two decades, beginning with an infield drainage system in 1981 and dugouts in 1985. Four years later a 1,500-seat grandstand and press box were constructed. Shortly afterward restrooms and a concession area were added. An Astro-turfed double hitting tunnel was erected down the right field line in 1991. The tunnel is now lighted, enabling Mountaineer hitters to work on their game anytime. It was also around that time that West Virginia installed an eight-foot fence adorned with advertising which has since been replaced with an improved version. Behind the fence is a modern scoreboard and message center constructed in 1998, which was accompanied by a $15,000 state-of-the-art sound system, giving Hawley Field a professional baseball environment. Inside the fence, bullpens were constructed, allowing room down the base lines for additional seating. It is his aim to construct two 500-seat grandstand bleachers down both foul lines to increase the stadium’s capacity to 2,500. The funds for this project will come through the annual baseball marathon game, which raises thousands each year for the program, along with donations from baseball alumni and friends. To all of the former baseball players who return to campus, Hawley Field is barely recognizable. It has also become a source of great pride to all of those who spend their time edging the warning tracks, pulling out dead grass, trimming the infield or giving their hardearned money to see it grow. Those same people hope to make Hawley Field one of the nation’s finest college baseball parks.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING Athletic excellence and strength and conditioning go hand-in-hand at West Virginia University. Long regarded as one of the nation’s finest strength programs, the strength and conditioning coaches at WVU ensure that all student-athletes are kept at the peak of their total fitness capabilities. “Our strength program here is second to none. The entire staff cares tremendously about our baseball program and players,” said coach Greg Van Zant. “Combining our facilities with our excellent strength program, it doesn’t get any better, and that’s a huge reason why we’ve had players who have been AllAmericans, all-conference or getting drafted and playing professional baseball. We really emphasize player development, and a big part of their development is their strength.” To keep athletes in tip-top condition, West Virginia offers a variety of training areas and a vast array of strength programs. The lifting portion of the baseball routine is used to improve overall strength, power and explosion. An increase in stride length, frequency and range of motion in joint to tendon relationships is directly correlated to speed, agility and injury prevention. Therefore, it is important to make flexibility an area of emphasis. For baseball players, the abdominal and low back regions are the units that tie the upper and lower extremities’ power together. In order to have excellent maneuverability and transfer of power, an athlete must have superior balance and strength in this core region. Training of the core region occurs three times per week using balance balls, medicine balls and other baseball-specific drills. Each athlete is educated on correct dietary habits and essential vitamins and minerals necessary to be an elite athlete. The athletes have the opportunity to meet with nutritionists, go on guided grocery store tours and receive diets designed specifically for them. Equipped with excellent amenities and staffed by some of the finest strength coaches in the nation, athletes who come to West Virginia know that they are in good hands when it comes to fitness.

BIG EAST CONFERENCE The 2011-12 academic year is the 33rd in the history of The BIG EAST Conference as the unique consortium marches on competing at the highest level with integrity and sportsmanship. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2011-12 year marks the conference’s seventh straight with the same 16-member group, making for the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. The conference’s goals have always been the same. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 35 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one-fourth of all television households in the U.S. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 31 national championships in six different sports and 133 student-athletes have won individual national titles. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. John Marinatto, who had served as senior associate commissioner, moved into the Commissioner’s chair in 2009 and has continued to steer the conference on its path of success. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student athletes. The conference has enjoyed longstanding relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 student-athletes. The 2012 BIG EAST Baseball Championship will be played May 23-27 at Bright House Field in Tampa, Fla.

WVU at the BIG EAST Tournament

Guided by 18-year coach Greg Van Zant, the West Virginia baseball team has enjoyed almost two decades of success at the BIG EAST Baseball Championship. After winning the 1996 conference title in just his second season, Van Zant guided the Mountaineers to three straight tournament berths (1997-99). The Mountaineers appeared in six tournaments throughout the last decade, including the last four straight. During the most recent run, WVU has compiled a 2-8 record, including a 13-6 victory over Notre Dame in 2008, the first time the championship was held at Bright House Field in Clearwater, Fla. WVU looks for its fifth straight conference championship berth this season, a streak of championship appearances that would eclipse the string from Van Zant’s early years (1996-99).

ATHLETIC TRAINING The West Virginia athletic training program looks to get its student-athletes back on the field in a timely manner while providing quality health care for its student-athletes and coaches. The scope of the athletic training services encompass various domains, which including injury recognition, treatment, rehabilitation, prevention, education and counseling that will enable the athlete to maintain an optimal quality of life beyond the span of athletic competition. Multiple athletic training rooms are available for student-athletes furnished with the latest in technology and equipment. The athletic training staff will work in conjunction with the team physicians and athletic administration to ensure the student-athletes receive quality care throughout their careers at WVU.

COMMUNITY SERVICE Representing West Virginia University, the city of Morgantown and the state of West Virginia in a charitable manner is important to the WVU baseball team. Besides training and studying everyday as part of their student-athlete duties, the Mountaineers are always ready and willing to give back to those that make Morgantown a kind-hearted and good-natured community. “It’s very important for our team to get out in the community,” said coach Greg Van Zant. “Our players and coaches enjoy community service projects and giving back to the Morgantown area and the state. Our guys are always eager to go out and help people that are less fortunate than they are.” One of the many traditions that the West Virginia baseball program enjoys is preparing, enhancing and improving the minds of elementary school children. A plethora of players have given their time, energy and effort toward reading to children at elementary schools as well as running fitness classes to show the importance of staying in shape. In early December, several players from this year’s team visited underprivileged kids from Mountainview Elementary School and took them on a shopping spree. The experience was a beacon of light for the children during the holiday season, an opportunity for each youngster to find something he or she liked as well as hang out with a Division I baseball player. The Mountaineers also have made several trips to the West Virginia Children’s Hospital, looking to provide some temporary relief to those who are sick. The annual occurrence always gives each Mountaineer a greater perspective on life, and in the process each player does what he can to put a smile on the faces of those who are in need of one. The West Virginia players and coaching staff also partake in seasonal baseball camps to give prospective Mountaineers an early look of what it takes to be a WVU baseball player. The emphasis of each camp is on player development, as coach Van Zant, his assistant coaches and respective players help each attendee hone their skills in an opportunity to someday play Division I baseball. Although the West Virginia baseball team works year-round to build as competitive of a program as possible, it is never a chore for the Mountaineers to give back to the community. Based on the success of their initiatives and the satisfaction that it gives to the players and coaches, WVU baseball will continue to engage in its philanthropy for years to come.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SUPPORT West Virginia University offers a variety of services and programs to help student-athletes maximize their academic potential. Department staff members work with coaches, on campus student service providers and faculty to help student-athletes meet the unique demands of the classroom, the sporting arena and the personal-social challenges they face as developing adults. While many of the headlines center on the Mountaineers’ accomplishments on the playing field, West Virginia athletes have also made some noteworthy strides in the classroom. Some of those strides include a string of eight consecutive years where the department has had at least one first team Academic All-American. To help its student athletes achieve academic success, one of the nation’s finest facilities resides in the WVU Coliseum – The Athletic Academic Performance Center. Coliseum Academic Performance Center – WVU Coliseum • 8,000-square foot facility providing individual and group study areas • State-of-the-art computer labs • Provides a quiet atmosphere and is open six days a week • The latest in fingerprint technology used when signing in • Center can be utilized around the student-athlete’s schedule • Center cost $1.3 million and opened in October of 2007 • Facility gift was provided by former Mountaineer great Jerry West and his wife, Karen, and the Robbins family WVU’s Academic Support Services Provides • Team educational counselors • Tutoring services • Priority registration for student-athletes • Post-eligibility assistance Tutoring Service Facts • More than 75 tutors provide student-athletes with assistance in their classes • Upperclassmen, graduate students and community members serve as tutors in their area of specialty • Tutoring services are provided for all student-athletes regardless of scholarship status NCAA Certification West Virginia University received unconditional recertification in April 2010 from the NCAA Division I Committee on Athletics Certification, recognizing that the University’s athletic program is in “substantial conformity with operating principles” adopted by Division I schools. The purpose of athletics certification is to ensure integrity in the institution’s athletics program and to assist institutions in improving their athletics departments, the NCAA said.

STUDENT-ATHLETE SUPPORT Graduation Rates West Virginia University’s graduation rate for student-athletes has been impressive, to say the least, over the past seven years. The ratio of student-athletes graduating to the general student body has increased almost every year. The graduation rate for student-athletes is based upon the number of students who entered the University receiving athletic scholarship aid in a given academic year, and their progress over six years. The most recent figures are based upon the progress of student-athletes who entered WVU during 2002-03. APR The West Virginia University women’s soccer team, men’s basketball team and women’s cross country team received public recognition in the spring of 2010 by the NCAA for their latest multiyear Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores. These teams posted multiyear APRs in the top 10 percent of all squads in each sport. Each year, the NCAA honors selected Division I sports teams by publicly recognizing their latest multiyear APR. The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each team’s academic performance. Student-Athlete Advisory Committee The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) provides a forum for the “voice of the student-athlete” on WVU’s campus. SAAC membership provides feedback to administration about how to better WVU athletic programs. They offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes’ lives on NCAA member institution campuses. CHAMPS/Life Skills The many challenges that today’s college student-athletes face, both on and off the playing field, are unmatched in the history of higher education. Unfortunately, many students are not well prepared to face these challenges or encounter life issues that undermine health and success in college. To prepare student-athletes for the demands of college life and beyond, the NCAA developed the CHAMPS (Challenging Athletes Minds for Personal Success)/Life Skills program. In the spring of 1995, the West Virginia University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics initiated its own CHAMPS/Life Skills program. WVU was one of only 170 schools selected by the NCAA to participate in their national pilot program. Five programming “commitment” areas viewed as critical to personal growth are part of WVU’s model. They are: 1) academic excellence, 2) personal development, 3) career development, 4) athletic excellence and 5) community service.

Greg Van Zant

[ head coach • 18th season • west virginia, ‘84 ]

VAN ZANT FILE COACHING EXPERIENCE WEST VIRGINIA, 1991-PRESENT • Head Coach (1995-present) • Assistant Coach (1991-94) • One NCAA Tournament appearance • 2x BIG EAST Regular Season Champion • 1x BIG EAST Postseason Champion • 2x BIG EAST Coach of the Year • 505 career wins • 1996 ABCA/East Region Coach of the Year GEORGIA SOUTHERN, 1988-90 • Assistant Coach EDUCATION GEORGIA SOUTHERN, 1989-90 • Master’s degree (business administration) • Master’s degree (sport management) WEST VIRGINIA, 1980-84 • Bachelor’s degree (industrial engineering) • Master’s degree (sport management) • Four-year starting third baseman

Now in his 18th season as head coach at West Virginia University, state native Greg Van Zant has elevated the WVU baseball program into the national spotlight. The former Mountaineer player ranks second in WVU baseball history with 505 wins and is only the fourth coach of any sport at WVU to surpass 500 wins. In his time as head coach at West Virginia, Van Zant has accomplished plenty by winning BIG EAST championships (regular season and tournament), earning an NCAA tournament appearance and churning out 50 players who have been drafted or signed contracts with Major League Baseball organizations, including 26 pitchers. Van Zant has produced six All-Americans, the BIG EAST Pitcher of the Year, the BIG EAST Player of the Year, two BIG EAST Rookies of the Year, 54 all-conference players, a first-round draft pick, a second-round draft pick, three major league players and an Olympian. He also has been named BIG EAST Coach of the Year twice as well as the American Baseball Coaches Association East Region Coach of the Year. During his first 17 seasons, Van Zant has averaged nearly 30 wins per year. This past season Van Zant led WVU to a 2827 record and a trip to its fifth BIG EAST Championship in the last six seasons. The squad finished with a 14-13 BIG EAST record and finished fourth in the conference regular-season standings. This was the Mountaineers second finish in the conference’s top four in the past three seasons. Van Zant earned his 500th win with a 6-3 victory over Seton Hall on April 21 at Hawley Field. The 2010 squad was able to earn the No. 8 seed in the BIG EAST Championship on a walk-off home run by Kevin Griffin on the final day of the regular season at Hawley Field against Villanova. Junior Jedd Gyorko earned All-America honors and won the Brooks Wallace Award as the nation’s top shortstop. Gyorko was drafted in the second round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the San Diego Padres.

The 2009 squad amassed 37 wins, tying the 1998 team for the second-most victories in school history. Van Zant led one of the country’s best offensive clubs to a third-place finish in the regular season, helping a school-record nine players earn all-BIG EAST accolades. The veteran coach propelled his group to 17 conference wins, WVU’s most since 2003, while directing the Mountaineers to a No. 26 ranking in the Collegiate Baseball poll and a No. 36 spot in the ESPN/USA Today Top 25 Coaches’ Poll during the week of April 13, 2009 Featuring three .400-plus hitters in Dan DiBartolomeo, Vince Belnome and Gyorko, the 2009 Mountaineers led the country in doubles per game (2.93) and set single-season school records for team batting average (.360), RBIs (491), doubles (161), extra base hits (242) and runs scored (525) in 2009. WVU finished with a 35-21 mark in 2008, making WVU one of the select few Division I programs to post 100 wins in a three-year span (2006-08). Led by All-Americans Tyler Kuhn and Gyorko, the Mountaineers finished fifth in the country with a .341 batting average, 13th in slugging percentage (.523) and 15th in total runs (477). Later that summer, former WVU pitcher Jeremy Cummings was selected to the United States Olympic Baseball team for the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, China. Van Zant oversaw the four-year progression of Cummings from 199699, as the Mountaineer pitching alum helped the United States earn a bronze medal. In 2007, Van Zant led WVU to a 29-22 record. Justin Jenkins earned third team All-America honors, while producing a 38-game hitting streak, tied for the 11th-longest in the history of college baseball. Jenkins later signed as a pre-draft free agent with the Cleveland Indians. Four other Mountaineers were selected in the pro draft in 2007. Van Zant guided the Mountaineers to a 36-22 record in 2006 and the program’s sixth BIG EAST

The 25-4 season-opening mark was the best start to a campaign in 40 years, garnering the school’s first national ranking since 1982. The 2006 squad put a strong offense on display, as it finished the season with a .339 batting average, good enough for second in all of Division I. The 2005 season was a special year for the skipper as he grabbed win No. 300 in a 15-1 victory over Savannah State on April 6. Also in 2005, for the first time in school history, three former Mountaineers were playing Major League Baseball at the same time. Steve Kline (Baltimore Orioles), Scott Seabol (St. Louis Cardinals) and Dustin Nippert (Arizona Diamondbacks) were all coached by Van Zant. In 2003, Van Zant orchestrated one of the most exciting seasons in team history, as the Mountaineers battled their way to a second place regular-season finish in the BIG EAST at 18-6 and a 36-19 overall record. For his efforts, Van Zant was named BIG EAST Coach of the Year for the second time in his career. WVU produced a school-record six draft picks in the 2001 season, as Van Zant reached 200 wins faster than any other coach in school history. In 1998, Van Zant’s talented squad produced a 37-17-1 record and advanced to the final four of the BIG EAST Tournament. Four players were drafted from that team, including 19th-round pick Brad Elwood. The Mountaineers ranked among the NCAA’s best in hitting (second) with a .358 team batting mark, pitching (22nd) with a 4.49 ERA and scoring (28th) at 9.02 runs per game. Outfielder and former volunteer assistant Joe McNamee became the coach’s second All-America player in two seasons. A year earlier in 1997, Van Zant led West Virginia to its second BIG EAST American Division title in as many years. Owning a 36-19 overall mark, West Virginia registered the third-most wins in school history at the time. His top pitcher, Chris Enochs, became the school’s first All-America selection since 1964 and was selected in the first round (11th overall selection) of the Major League Baseball Draft by the Oakland Athletics. For Van Zant’s efforts, he was honored as the 1997 BIG EAST Coach of the Year. West Virginia’s 1996 squad won the BIG EAST American Division regular season title and won the BIG EAST Tournament championship. WVU then defeated nationally ranked Tennessee and Georgia Southern at the NCAA Atlantic Regional at Clemson, S.C. securing the school’s first wins against nationally ranked teams since 1982. His club finished third in the regional tournament and 33-25 on the season. West Virginia was one of just three schools from the nation’s 10 major baseball conferences to win the regular and postseason titles that season, and its 2-0 start in the NCAA Tournament was the best in school history. By virtue of his club’s 1996 BIG EAST Tournament championship, the coach has now participated in the NCAA Tournament as a player (1982), an assistant (1990 and 1994) and a head coach. The Mountaineers finished the 1996 campaign ranked No. 36 by USA Today/Baseball Weekly, the highest West Virginia has ever finished in that poll. He was named the ABCA/East Region Coach of the Year, one of eight regional coaches honored nationwide. Van Zant took over the Mountaineer program in December 1994, a month after the death of longtime mentor Dale Ramsburg.

Serving as Ramsburg’s top assistant and recruiting coordinator from 1991-94, Van Zant helped recruit the players that produced an NCAA regional berth in 1994. He also was instrumental in numerous improvements to the Mountaineer baseball program, including re-establishing the alumni game and the construction of an eight-foot outfield fence with advertising and 30-foot foul poles. As head coach, the facility improvements have continued. The most notable are the installation of state-of-the-art lights at Hawley Field and initiating the Mountaineer Baseball Marathon Game, which has raised thousands of dollars for ballpark upgrades. Recently, Van Zant helped raise funds for a new drainage system, infield surface, warning track and major league style batter’s eye just beyond the center field fence. Van Zant began his association with college baseball as a four-year starting third baseman at WVU from 1980-83. He is best remembered for a diving catch at third base that started a gameending double play to give WVU a 7-5 victory over Rutgers in the Eastern Eight Championship game and a berth in the 1982 NCAA Tournament. That team came within two games of advancing to the College World Series and finished 16th in the nation in the final Collegiate Baseball poll. After earning a degree in industrial engineering from WVU in 1984, Van Zant worked for Ford Motor Company and coached American Legion Baseball in Connersville, Ind., from 1985-87. Van Vant accepted a coaching position at Georgia Southern under legendary coach Jack Stallings in the fall of 1987 and coached in Statesboro through 1990. During his three years at Georgia Southern, he was responsible for working with the infielders as well as marketing and promoting the baseball program. In his final season at Georgia Southern in 1990, Van Zant was part of an Eagle team that won 50 games and advanced to the College World Series.

[ head coach • 18th season • west virginia, ‘84 ] After the trip to Omaha, Van Zant spent the summer of 1990 coaching in the Cape Cod League with the Falmouth Commodores, where he helped instruct St. Louis Cardinals first-round pick Alan Watson. While at Georgia Southern, Van Zant earned master’s degrees in sport management (1988) and business administration (1989). He also is a two-time recipient of the Rawlings Baseball postgraduate scholarship for his work both on the field and in the classroom. As the only Division I baseball coach with an engineering degree and an MBA, Van Zant has constantly stressed the importance of academic success. He was instrumental in guiding former players Josh Williamson (1997) and Lee Fritz (2005) toward CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, and also has coached three academic alldistrict performers during his tenure in Morgantown.

Pat Sherald enters his eighth season with the Mountaineer baseball program as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. Specifically, Sherald serves as the hitting coach and works with the catchers. Sherald also serves as the bench coach on game days. Throughout his tenure at WVU, Sherald’s hitters have dominated the BIG EAST statistics and 2011 proved to be no different with the team batting above .300 for the ninth-consecutive season. In 2011, Grant Buckner led the team with a .364 average, including 48 runs, 14 doubles, eight home runs and 46. Starters Jeremy Gum (.339), Dan DiBartolomeo (.338) and Brady Wilson (.330) were also able to eclipse the .300 mark. Behind the plate, catchers Matt Malloy and Kevin Griffin committed just five errors and were able to throw out 33 percent of base runners, the sixth-best mark in the BIG EAST. The 2010 season saw the Mountaineers bat .305 and smack the second-most doubles in school history, while tying the 2003 team with the fourthmost extra-base hits. For the first time in school history three players hit over .400 in 2009, while the team as a whole was considered one of the top hitting squads in the country. Six batters hit better than .300 in 2008 with a team average of .341, the nation’s fifth-best mark. Two players bat better than .400, as Tyler Kuhn (.424) and Jedd Gyorko (.409) powered their way to nationally acclaimed seasons while leading one of the greatest batting lineups in school history. During this time Sherald helped pave the professional careers of Gyorko, Kuhn and Tobias Streich. Gyorko left WVU with virtually every school record and was named the San Diego Padres Minor League Player of the Year in 2011, while Kuhn has made it all the way to Triple-A for the Chicago White Sox. Streich was drafted early out of college and has been a catch in the Minnesota Twins organization after leading the Mountaineers as a hitter and behind the plate. Sherald helped lead the 2007 squad to a ranking of No. 24 nationally in batting average, while helping Justin Jenkins to become a Collegiate Baseball third team All-American as well as an all-BIG EAST second team performer. Previously in 2006, Casey Bowling became just the seventh WVU hitter since 1990 to finish a season batting over .400. Jenkins also set the school record for single-season hits with 94. Sherald also worked daily catcher David Carpenter, who was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 12th round following the 2006 season. Carpenter transitioned to the pitcher’s mound and made his MLB debut with the Houston Astros in 2011. Sherald came from Lamar University, where he served as an assistant coach for three seasons. At Lamar, Sherald worked primarily with the catchers and pitchers. He guided the Lamar pitching staff to three consecutive Top 25 rankings in earned-run average, including sixth-best in the nation in 2004. The Cardinals made three consecutive trips to the NCAA Regionals under Sherald’s watch, while 14 players signed professional baseball contracts. The team also won two Sothland Conference championships and two tournament titles, posting 36-, 40- and 41-win seasons while being nationally ranked in each of Sherald’s three seasons.

32 [ WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY ]

A two-year letterman for Lamar from 2000-01, Sherald earned academic All-Southland Conference honors at catcher while earning two degrees, a bachelor’s and master’s degree in kinesiology. He completed his thesis and was named graduate student of the year. Sherald began his playing career at Frederick Community College (Md.), where he lettered from 1998-99. As a catcher he earned all-conference and all-tournament honors, helped FCC advance to the Division II World Series and finish the season ranked fourth nationally. The Emmitsburg, Md., native received his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification in 2002. He was a USA Today honorable mention All-American and MVP of the Crown All-Star game coming out of Catoctin High. Sherald is also a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). Besides excelling as a player and coach, Sherald has also published various articles concerning sport and exercise. In 2006, he helped authorize a scholarly article entitled Anaerobic Overtraining: Physiological and Psychological Symptoms and Training Considerations. The Applied Research in Coaching and Athletics Annual. Carrying a baseball pedigree that stems throughout his family, Sherald’s father, Tom, was also a Division I coach and eventually was enshrined into the Maryland Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame in 2000. He enjoyed a successful coaching career at Mount Saint Mary’s University, and also coached at Catoctin/Thomas Johnson High Schools. Sherald and his wife, Kat, reside in Morgantown.

Brady Wilson

After finishing the 2011 season with a winning record and another trip to the BIG EAST Championship, the West Virginia University baseball team is looking to build off the success for 2012. Despite returning just five position players and seven pitchers with game experience, this season’s outfit is loaded with junior college and high school talent looking to make an impact. INFIELD There is a lot of potential for the Mountaineer infield this season as the squad only returns one player from the 2011 season. Sophomore Ryan McBroom will start the season at first base, while junior college transfers Stuart Jeck, John Polonius and Nate Antone will round out the remainder of the infield. McBroom started 35 games at first in 2011 with an average of .246, 13 runs, five doubles, three home runs and 24 RBIs. As a smooth fielder, McBroom made just three errors and recorded 314 putouts last season. Jeck, who has the ability to play both second base and shortstop, will begin the season at second after ranking sixth in the nation with 47 stolen bases in 2011 at Fort Scott C.C. In 58 games, Jeck recorded a .369 batting average with 83 hits, 20 doubles, five triples, 66 runs

52 [ WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY ]

and 50 RBIs. One of the best fielders on the team, Polonius will serve as a shortstop after attending Genesee C.C. in 2011 and being drafted in the 30th round by the Cleveland Indians. Polonius led Genesee in seven offensive categories, including batting average (.370), RBIs (23), runs (21), triples (5), doubles (11) and hits (30, as well as stealing 21 of 23 bases. Nate Antone will play the hot corner for WVU after batting .426 with 66 hits, 52 runs, 52 RBIs, 27 doubles, three triples and three home runs for Potomac State J.C. in 2011. Freshman Justin Fox has the ability to play second base, as well as catcher, and will likely see time at both positions in 2012. Potomac State J.C. transfer Ryan Bennett can also play second base for WVU, while Billy Fleming was one of the top high school players in Pennsylvania in 2011 and can play shortstop and third base. OUTFIELD Making the transition to center field is junior Brady Wilson, who will anchor an experienced outfield for the Mountaineers this season. Wilson had a breakout season in right field and as the team’s leadoff hitter in 2011, finishing

the year with a .330 average, 45 runs, eight doubles, two homers, 27 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Wilson recorded 199 putouts and made just one error. Third-year sophomore Matt Frazer will play left field for WVU and will likely bat either third or fourth in the order. Frazer played eight games in 2011 before breaking his leg while rounding first at Elon to prematurely end his season. Prior to the injury, Frazer was batting .357 in eight starts with two runs, four doubles and three RBIs. Opening the season in right field is fourthyear junior Chris Rasky. Rasky took over for Frazer in left field in 2011 and batted .286 in 36 starts with 19 runs, five doubles, one home run and 21 RBIs. Rasky was also hit by 14 pitches. Other Mountaineers looking for time in the outfield will be freshmen Bobby Boyd and Jon Roszel. Boyd batted .404 from the leadoff spot, drove in 24 runs and stole 24 bases last season at St. John’s College High and will likely come in as a late-inning defensive replacement. Roszel batted .500 with 26 runs, six doubles, four triples, three home runs and 25 RBIs as a senior for Manchester Township High. CATCHING Another spot where the Mountaineers are inexperienced is behind the plate, where only one of five catchers has starting experience. Redshirt freshman Max Nogay will make the start on opening day behind the plate after moving from second and serving as the bullpen catcher in 2011. Junior Matt Malloy started 35 games in 2011, hitting .289 with 24 runs, seven doubles, one triple, three home runs and 15 RBIs. Defensively, Malloy made just four errors with 37 assists. Junior college transfers Gabe Brown and Alan Filauro will also see time at the position. Brown was an NJCAA Division II First Team All-American and the Region 10 Player of the Year at Lenoir C.C., ranking 11th nationally in batting average (.451) and 13th in home runs (12). Known for his superb fielding, Filauro led Potomac State J.C. to a Region 20 Championship and a third-place finish at the 2011 Junior College World Series.

Season Preview

[ wvu returns 15 letterwinners in 2012 ] PITCHING Redshirt sophomore Marshall Thompson and sophomore Corey Walter will lead the rotation after becoming starters in 2011 on the same day as part of a doubleheader. Thompson, a southpaw, became a weekend starter last season and started 11 games with a 5-4 record to go with a 4.88 ERA. Thompson pitched two complete games in 66.1 innings with 48 strikeouts. The right-handed throwing Walter served as a midweek starter and entered conference games in long relief situations, finishing the year with a 4.75 ERA in 12 appearances and four starts. Walter recorded one complete game and pitched in 55 innings, striking out 29 batters. After missing 2011 because of Tommy John surgery, Eric Hinkle will return to the mound and in 2012. The crafty lefthander made 13 appearances and 12 starts in 2010, striking out 31 in 46.1 innings pitched. Right-hander Dan Dierdorff is also expected to get some time as a starter after transferring from Frederick C.C. as the school’s career leader in innings pitched and strikeouts, and being named a 2011 NJCAA Division II Second Team AllAmerican. Sophomore Ryan Tezak will once again be the top guy out of the bullpen after recording four saves in 16 appearances with a 3.81 ERA his rookie season. In 28.1 innings pitched, Tezak struck out 30 batters and allowed just 12 runs while compiling a 3-2 record. Also returning in the bullpen is sophomore Josh Harlow, who proved to be a key member of the staff down the stretch and finished with a 1-1 record and a 4.55 ERA in 11 appearances. Harlow struck out 22 batters in 31.2 innings. Freshman Caleb Ross and junior Austin Pressly are also expected to be important contributors out of the bullpen, while Antone and Brown both have the ability to pitch in relief situations. Antone served as Potomac State J.C.’s closer last season and led the team to big wins en route to a NJCAA World Series berth. The Mountaineers open the 2012 campaign on Friday, Feb. 17, in St. Petersburg, Fla., against Northwestern in the Big East-Big Ten Baseball Challenge. West Virginia will also face Penn State on Saturday afternoon before wrapping up weekend play with a pair of games against Iowa and Michigan on Sunday.

Season Review [ recapping 2011 ]

Grant Buckner

Entering the final series of the regular series, WVU went into the weekend needing one win to clinch a berth in the BIG EAST Championship. The team earned the win on the final day of the regular season to secure a winning regular season, as well as a winning conference record. The win also clinched the No. 4 seed in the tournament after a mini-conference tie-breaker that the Mountaineers win. The fight and determination of the team represented what coach Greg Van Zant preached all season to this senior laden team. Grant Buckner completed his WVU career as one of the best hitters to go through the program and finished 2011 as arguably the top hitter in the BIG EAST. Buckner finished 2011 with a .364 average, 48 runs, 14 doubles, eight home runs and 46 RBIs. The Chicago White Sox draft pick earned all-BIG EAST third team honors at shortstop for his efforts in committing just 13 errors. The Mountaineers also said goodbye to Jeremy Gum who spent his final season at WVU as a designated hitter, finding a stroke that landed him a spot on the all-BIG EAST first team. Gum had gaudy numbers that included a .339 average, 16 doubles, four home runs and 38 RBIs. Never afraid to take one for the team, Gum broke both the BIG EAST and WVU record by getting hit by 23 pitches during the season.

60 [ WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY ]

Other graduating position players included Mark Dvoroznak, Justin McDavid, Kevin Griffin and Colin Durborow. Dvoroznak played 53 games in centerfield, making just one error and batting .286 for the season. The starting third baseman throughout the season, McDavid completed the season with a .276 batting average and led the team with three triples and registered third on the team with 12 doubles. Griffin battled injuries all season, starting 22 games

Jeremy Gum

at catcher, while Durborow started 14 games at second base. Senior Andy Berry proved his worth as the ace on the staff and a Sunday starter for WVU. Berry finished the season with an impressive 8-4 record in 15 starts, to go along with an earned-run average of 4.09. Berry was tied for the lead on the team with 48 strikeouts and had three gut-wrenching complete game performances, including two against Notre Dame. In his rookie season Ryan Tezak found himself as the closer and had an impressive season by recording a 3.81 ERA in 16 appearances. Tezak finished the season with a 3-2 record and four saves to go along with 30 strikeouts, the most among relievers. The season began with an impressive 5-0 shutout win over the Iowa that saw Buckner homering in his first two at bats and left-hander Jon Jones holding the Hawkeyes to two hits in 6.1 innings. The BIG EAST/Big Ten Challenge continued with a heartbreaking loss to Penn State in the eighth inning, while McDavid hit a walk-off single with two-outs in the bottom of the ninth to give WVU a 5-4 win over Illinois in the final game. After losing the next four games against Miami (Ohio), Marist, UNC Wilmington and Wright State, the Mountaineer bats exploded for 12 runs and 18 hits in a 12-1 rout of Temple. Gum finished the afternoon 4-for-5 with a home run, a double, four RBIs and three runs. The team then returned to the friendly confines of Hawley Field to open the home season

Season Review [ recapping 2011 ]

and did not disappoint, recording 11 wins in a 14 game homestand. WVU swept Bryant and Eastern Kentucky, while taking 3-of-4 from Rider and Canisius. The homestand concluded with a split doubleheader against Eastern Michigan that saw WVU take game one 20-6 after allowing six runs in the top of the first inning. Griffin led the team with a 4-for-5 performance, including two doubles, two runs and three RBIs. The BIG EAST season quickly crept up on WVU and it was off to USF for a three-game series against one of the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tougher opponents. After falling in the first game, WVU took the final two of the series to end the first weekend with a winning record in the BIG EAST. After falling in the Mountaineer Diamond Classic to a tough Morehead State team, WVU returned to the BIG EAST season for the second tough road trip of the season and defeated No. 23 Louisville 9-2 in game one to give WVU its first win at Louisville in team history. Tezak recorded his first career win in a solid five innings of relief, allowing just one hit and striking out seven. The Mountaineers then dropped the final two games of the series to bring their BIG EAST record to 6-6. After a home midweek non-conference loss to Maryland, WVU swept Georgetown at home. Buckner and Dan DiBartolomeo finished the series batting .455 and .444, respectively. Buckner had one run, one double and two RBIs,

while DiBartolomeo scored three runs and had one homer to go with three RBIs. WVU looked to continue the success as the team took a road trip to Notre Dame. A two-run two-out double by freshman Ryan McBroom led the Mountaineers to a 6-4 victory in game one

of the series. Only a few hours later on ESPNU, the Mountaineers fell 5-2 to the Irish in a blustery, rainy night game that featured three rain delays and winds that came in from all directions. Needing a strong performance to win the series in game three, Berry failed to disappoint by allowing just three hits and one run for his first career nine-inning complete game. Buckner finished the afternoon with a 3-for-5 performance, including two runs, a double, a home run and three RBIs. Buckner completed the weekend batting 6-for-12 with four runs, two doubles, a home run and four RBIs. What is more impressive is what Buckner did in his career against the Irish, going 13-for-37 with 13 runs, three doubles, five home runs and 20 RBIs. The team returned home and was able to take two-of-three from Seton Hall with Buckner again leading the offensive attack with a 5-for-9 series performance, including three runs, one double, one home run and three RBIs. However, the series featured a huge loss as freshman starter Harrison Musgrave ended his season after recording a win in seven innings

Record Book [ all-americans ]

Tom Shafer 1961 Known as one of the best pitchers to wear the Old Gold and Blue, Tom Shafer was named an Amateur Baseball Federation second team All-American after emerging as the ace of the pitching rotation in 1961. Shafer finished the regular season with a 6-1 mark and a 1.45 ERA. The hurler struck out 56 batters in 56 innings pitched, and gave up only nine earned runs while walking 18 batters. He led the Mountaineers to a 17-10 finish, including another postseason berth at the NCAA Tournament in Gastonia, N.C. Shafer is the school’s all-time leader in career ERA (1.69), seventh in innings pitched (235.0) and ninth in winning percentage (.708). He is also tied for eighth on the single-season list for wins (nine in 1962) and ninth for his eight complete games in 1962.

Bill Marovic 1964

Bill Marovic earned the prestigious honor of being WVU’s first-ever ABCA first-team All-American. The Leckrone, Pa., native ended the 1964 season with a well-rounded .404 average. The three-year letterman led one of WVU’s most potent offenses, with six batters finishing with a .300 or better average. Marovic created havoc for opposing pitchers on the base paths, racking up a team-leading 27 stolen bases. WVU finished the season at 24-5, falling in its first two postseason contests against Mississippi and East Carolina. The athletic centerfielder ranks first on the school’s all-time career list in stolen bases (74) and is tied for seventh with eight triples. His .404 average at the plate puts him 11th on WVU’s single-season list.

Ed Tekavec 1961 The versatile infielder who could play at both corners was honored as an American Baseball Coaches Association second team All-American in 1961, giving WVU its first All-American combination with Ed Tekavec and Tom Shafer. Tekavec led the offense with a blistering .427 batting average. He boasted a team-best 32 hits, 23 RBIs and 38 total bases prior to WVU’s entrance into the NCAA postseason. The upstart player platooned all around the infield, ranging from shortstop to third base to first base. He committed only two errors during his All-American campaign, making him a viable candidate as one of the nation’s best players. Tekavec lettered as a Mountaineer from 1960-62.

Joe Hatalla 1962 Joe Hatalla led WVU’s offensive attack in 1962 en route to being named a third team ABCA All-American. He powered his way to a .415 average during the regular season, and compiled one home run, 10 RBIs, eight doubles and a triple. The talented infielder paced the Mountaineers to a 17-9 record and another NCAA berth. Defensive-minded as well, he led the squad with 65 assists and sported a .954 fielding percentage during his standout season. The Nemacolin, Pa., native played at WVU from 1961-63.

The Charleston, W.Va., native became the first Mountaineer to earn multiple All-American honors, being named an ABCA second team All-American as well as a Collegiate Baseball and National College Baseball Writers Association third team All-American in 1994. Landers was the catalyst for WVU’s recordsetting squad that reached the 40-win plateau for the first time in school history. He garnered a solid .416 average with a WVU single- season record 19 home runs and 81 RBIs, as well as 22 doubles. He added 91 hits and 57 runs scored to highlight his prolific season from the plate. The Mountaineers had an eventful season, winning the Atlantic-10 Tournament and then defeating St. Peter’s twice in an NCAA play-in series at Hawley Field behind Landers’ offensive prowess. Landers is fifth on the school’s all-time list in home runs (32) and RBIs (167). He is also atop WVU’s career leaders in base hits (220), at-bats (646), doubles (57), extra base hits (89), runs scored (142) and multi-hit games (61).

Chris Enochs 1997 As the dominant pitcher in WVU’s 1997 starting rotation, Chris Enochs was rewarded as a Collegiate Baseball and ABCA first team All-American. Besides being the second Mountaineer player to ever garner first-team honors, Enoch also was named a Sporting News, Baseball America and NCBWA second team All-American. Enochs’ productive season on the mound included a 12-1 mark with a 3.03 ERA. He tossed a single-season record 10 complete games and struck out 86 batters. The Newell, W.Va., native threw 95 innings in 15 appearances, which involved 14 starts. The multi-faceted player also hit well at the plate, carrying a .281 average with two home runs and 19 RBIs during his vintage season. His 21 career victories are tied for ninth all-time at WVU in just three seasons of work.

Joe McNamee 1998 Joe McNamee was honored as an ABCA third team All-American in left field during the 1998 season. He led the Mountaineer hitting attack with a .429 average, 13 home runs, 66 RBIs and 27 doubles. Furthermore, the Bridgeport, W.Va., native tallied 61 runs and 152 total bases while putting together a .796 slugging percentage. He led a powerful batting lineup that hit .358 as a team, at the time the highest in school history. Revealing his intimidation at the plate, McNamee was intentionally walked five times, nearly half of WVU’s 11 intentional passes in 1998. He was a three-time letterman from 1996-98.

Justin Jenkins 2007 The Ridgeley, W.Va., native left his final season at WVU in style after being named a Collegiate Baseball third team All-American in 2007. Justin Jenkins was also named to the Pro-Line Athletic NCBWA third team, as well as the Louisville Slugger NCAA Division I All-America third team. His superb senior year was highlighted by a 38-game hitting streak that lasted from Feb. 17-April 28. Jenkins’ run was the longest ever by a BIG EAST player and ties for 10th place in NCAA history. Jenkins led the Mountaineers with a .372 batting average and produced 11 home runs and a team-high 21 doubles. After his superb 2007 season, he was signed by the Cleveland Indians. The steady left fielder is a fixture in the Mountaineer career record books, sitting among the school’s career leaders in batting average (.369), base hits (253), home runs (33), at-bats (686), RBIs (140), doubles (69), extra base hits (105) and runs scored (158).

Tyler Kuhn 2008 One of the great all-around baseball players at WVU, Tyler Kuhn finished off his senior campaign as a Pro Line Athletic/NCBWA and Rawlings/ABCA third team All-American. Known as one of the country’s most talented shortstops, Kuhn batted .424 with nine home runs, 56 RBIs and 17 doubles while leading the nation’s fifth-best offense to a 35-21 mark in 2008. The Louisville, Ky., native lettered from 2005-08 and was drafted by the Chicago White Sox. He is regarded as WVU’s “Iron Man” after playing in all 220 career games during his illustrious four-year career.

Vince Belnome 2009 Known as one of the greatest pure hitters in school history, Vince Belnome earned third team College Baseball Insider All-America honors after having his most prolific season in his final year. Belnome, who gave up his final year of eligibility after being drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 28th round, set the school record for RBIs with 84 in 2009. The Coatesville, Pa., native batted .418 with nine home runs, 20 doubles, 66 runs scored and 89 hits. The two-time all-BIG EAST performer finished his junior year among the nation’s best with a .519 on-base percentage and posted a team-best 24 multiple RBI games. He finished his three-year career among the school’s all-time leaders in batting average (.388), base hits (216) and RBIs (174). Belnome also owns one of the greatest single-game performance in Mountaineer history, going 6-for-6 with two home runs, nine RBIs and four runs scored in an 18-3 rout over Cincinnati on May 10.

Jedd Gyorko 2008, 2009, 2010 Hailing from Morgantown, infielder Jedd Gyorko left West Virginia University as arguably the greatest baseball player in school history. Following his sophomore year in 2009, Gyorko became the first Mountaineer to garner All-America accolades in more than one season, being named a Louisville Slugger second team All-American as well as a third team Pro-Line Athletic/NCBWA All-American. He was also honored as a second team All-American by the NCBWA in 2008. In 2010, the fundamentally sound junior continued his burst into national consciousness. He became the first first team All-American since Chris Enochs in 1997 after being honored once again by the NCBWA, and was listed as a second team All-American by Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and ABCA/Rawlings. Gyorko, who was selected by the San Diego Padres in the second round of the 2010 Major League Baseball first-year player draft, is WVU’s all-time leader in batting average (.404), doubles (73), extra base-hits (113) and tied for first place in home runs (35). He is also the single-season leader in home runs (19 in 2010 is tied with Mark Landers), doubles (28 in 2009 and 2010), extra-base hits (48 in 2010), walks (43 in 2010), total bases (177 in 2010) and assists (192 in 2010).

Former WVU pitcher Jeremy Cummings became the first Mountaineer baseball player to compete in the Summer Olympic Games as he helped lead Team USA to a Bronze Medal at the 2008 Games in Beijing, China. The Charleston, W.Va., native allowed one run on three hits in five innings pitched, contributing two solid appearances for the Red, White and Blue. Cummings’ second appearance included tossing two shutout innings in a 4-2 victory over Japan in 11 innings. Cummings’ other appearance came in a 5-4 extra-inning loss to defending champion Cuba, which finished with a silver medal. Not only did Cummings receive the thrill of competing for his native country, he also went on to enjoy one of his finest seasons as a member of the Durham Bulls, the Triple-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. He emerged at the front of the starting rotation with an 8-3 record and a 2.87 ERA in 14 games started. Cummings held several high marks while playing at WVU from 199699. He is the school’s all-time leader in career appearances with 58, eighth all-time with 225.1 innings pitched and is tenth on the career list with 211 strikeouts. The former Mountaineer standout also holds several single-season marks. His 109.2 innings pitched and 15 starts in 1999 are both second all-time, and his 119 strikeouts during the same season are fourth on the single-season list. Cummings also had 18 appearances during his junior campaign in 1998, good for sixth on WVU’s single-season list.

Dr. James P. Clements [ president ]

WVU’s First Family, standing from left: Jim, Beth and Tyler Clements. In rockers, from left: twins Hannah and Maggie. Seated on lawn: Grace. James P. Clements has said that no university in the country means more to its state than West Virginia University means to West Virginia. Since becoming WVU’s 23rd president on June 30, 2009, Dr. Clements has focused on expanding the University’s role as a 21st century land-grant institution. With a Strategic Framework for the Future now in place, WVU is committed to excelling in five key areas: academic excellence, research and innovation, diversity, global engagement, and enhancing the well-being and quality of life of our citizens. Dr. Clements has announced several initiatives in support of these strategic planning goals, including: adding 100 new faculty members to decrease the student-faculty ratio and support core and niche academic and research curriculums; building a new student health facility to increase wellness efforts; dedicating capital funds to expand outdoor recreational space for students; and increasing research to strengthen the University’s position as an economic engine as well as a leader in fields such as energy, biometrics, and health sciences. Additional priorities are to continue offering world-class health care and – through WVU’s Top-10 nationally ranked Rural Health Program – remain committed to increasing state outreach in the health sciences. To that end, WVU recently announced plans to establish a WVU School for Public Health to train the next generation of public health professionals, conduct high-quality population health

research, and help the state confront preventable health threats that increase health care costs and shorten lives. Other goals include finding more efficient and effective ways to use technology to drive progress, increasing the diversity of WVU’s learning community and developing an even broader global focus in preparing students for new international opportunities. Other initiatives focus on increasing student retention, increasing WVU’s doctoral program enrollment, enhancing leadership development and increasing operating funds. This momentum has carried over to record gains in enrollment, research, and private giving. Student enrollment across all campuses reached more than 32,000; research contract and grant awards for the past two years averaged an all-time high of $176 million; and annual private giving to WVU reached an all-time high of nearly $100 million this past year. The University was also recognized as among the six percent of institutions in the country that the Carnegie Foundation classifies as highly engaged in service, and as one of the four best flagship universities in the country for access by the Education Trust. In addition to overseeing WVU and its divisional campuses, Dr. Clements chairs the boards of the WVU Research Corporation, the West Virginia United Health System, and the WVU Hospitals. In total, WVU and its affiliates represent a $2.3 billion enterprise and employ more than 18,000 people.

118 [ WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY ]

Dr. Clements also serves as an ex-officio member of the WVU Foundation and WVU Alumni Association boards, and is active with national higher education organizations such as the Association of Public Land-Grant Universities and the American Council on Education. Regionally, he is a board member of the National Energy Technology Laboratory Regional University Alliance. He is co-chair of the Economic Development Team of the Power of 32, a visioning initiative across 32 counties in Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. He also co-chaired the WV Higher Education Policy Commission’s Diversity Initiative Council and currently co-chairs the WV Higher Education Policy Commission’s College Completion Task Force, as well as serves on the board of the West Virginia Business Roundtable. On a national level, he was nominated and selected to participate in the 81st Joint Civilian Orientation Conference through the U.S. Department of Defense, and invited by U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke to join a select 15-member Innovation Advisory Board that will guide a study of U.S. economic competitiveness and innovation. Before joining the Mountaineer family, Dr. Clements served as provost and vice president at Towson University, the second-largest public university in Maryland. Under his leadership, Towson developed academic and student support programs that led to impressive increases in enrollment as well as retention and graduation rates. Towson’s externally-funded research increased by 36 percent during Dr. Clements’ tenure as provost. Prior to becoming provost, he served as Towson University’s vice president for economic and community outreach and as the Robert W. Deutsch Distinguished Professor and chair of the Department of Computer and Information Sciences. He was a four-time recipient of Towson’s Faculty Member of the Year Award given by students at the University. Dr. Clements has an academic background in computer science. He earned a B.S. in computer science and an M.S. and Ph.D. in operations analysis from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), as well as an M.S. in computer science from Johns Hopkins University. The fourth edition of his project management textbook was published in four languages and used in multiple countries; the fifth edition was recently released. At WVU, Dr. Clements is a tenured professor in the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources’ Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. In October 2009, he was named UMBC’s Alumnus of the Year in the Engineering and Information Technology category. Jim is married to Beth Clements, and they have four children – Tyler, twin daughters Hannah and Maggie, and Grace.

Oliver Luck

[ director of athletics ]

Former Mountaineer quarterback Oliver Luck is West Virginia’s 11th Director of Athletics. Successful at each of his previous career stops, Oliver Luck looks to continue that streak at West Virginia University. A former Mountaineer quarterback, Luck, appointed the University’s 11th Director of Athletics by President James P. Clements on June 9, 2010, has already made strides in just one year in enhancing WVU’s role as a player in the collegiate world. “Oliver Luck is someone who has succeeded at the highest levels at everything he has done – from his college and professional football playing days to his academic pursuits and his professional business career,” said Clements. “He is the clear choice to carry forward what has truly been a golden era in athletics.” “It’s an incredible honor for me to be appointed as athletic director at my alma mater,” said Luck. “I care deeply about this school. I’ve had an opportunity to serve on the Board of Governors the last couple of years, and it’s given me a tremendous viewpoint of how important intercollegiate athletics is at a land-grant institution like WVU. “WVU is truly one of the outstanding land-grant universities in the country, and I am so pleased to be a part of its momentum and growth. This is a tremendous opportunity - a chance to return to a University and a state that I love at a dynamic and strategic time in its history.” In his first year, Luck has hired four head coaches while maintaining the superior level of success WVU has recently enjoyed. In addition

to new hires, Luck has overseen the progress of major capital projects, such as the WVU basketball practice facility, and fostered an atmosphere for achievement and triumph, in the classroom and on the field. Luck’s athletic and professional career has been the epitome of success, first as a record-setting quarterback for the Mountaineers from 1978-81, then as a professional quarterback for the National Football League’s Houston Oilers, and later as a professional sports executive. Luck’s journey to the big chair at WVU began in his native Cleveland, where in 1977 he was named the Cleveland Touchdown Club Player of the Year at St. Ignatius High. Luck chose WVU over Ivy League schools Harvard and Yale, embarking upon a career that saw him establish school records for touchdown passes and completions during his playing days, while also leading the Mountaineers to a 26-6 upset victory over Florida in the 1981 Peach Bowl. His best season came as a senior in 1981 when he completed 216 of 394 passes for 2,448 yards and 16 touchdowns. He passed for a career-high 360 yards in a 27-24 loss to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome in the final regular-season game of his career. Luck ended his college career with 5,765 yards and 43 touchdown passes, both figures still ranking among the best in school history. Luck was a two-time team MVP in 1980 and 1981, and also received the Louis D. Meisel Award for the WVU football student-athlete

coaches with the highest grade point average.
