COACHES’ PERSPECTIVES “Winners are always striving for something more. They have a competitive edge that separates them from everyone else. They never seem to weigh the odds before accepting a challenge. They push themselves to the limits to maximize their ability in all aspects of life. To be at West Point is to be a winner. You attend college in hopes of setting yourself up for success in the future. Your goal is to open as many doors as possible. No place in the world accomplishes that better than West Point. West Pointers have been an integral part of our past and will be an integral part of our future. There is no place I’d rather be.” — JOE SOTTOLANO, HEAD COACH “The opportunity to be a part of the best leadership development institution in the world, and to coach on the grounds that many of our nation’s very best leaders once walked is truly a humbling experience. I am extremely proud to be working alongside many of the very best young men that America has to offer. In addition, the support that the Army baseball program receives is remarkable, both from an alumni and an administrative standpoint. The combination of these two aspects makes this an extraordinary opportunity.” — ANTHONY DeCICCO, ASSISTANT COACH “I am proud to be a member of the West Point family. The unique qualities of life education received at the United States Military Academy, both in the classroom and on the baseball field, are remarkable. Every day I am at West Point, I understand the incredible closeness here, and I see the vibrant, active alumni network, and how they help each other. The support within the baseball family is awesome as well, and I’m excited to be a part of it. It’s an honor to work with the outstanding cadets on the baseball team, and we will all work hard to make the United States Military Academy proud.” — MATT REID, ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH

CENTER OF ATTENTION


WHAT THEY’RE SAYING “One thing about these military-officers-in-training – they won’t be rattled. Let’s face it, they’re soldiers. Not only that, last year’s experience at LSU will be a huge advantage for the (Black) Knights. Nick Hill and Justin Kashner have great resumes and with an inspired effort, could pull off a few shockers in the Tallahassee Regional. FSU better be aware of what they’re getting into.” — ERIC SORENSON, SORENSON, SEBaseball.com, predicting Army as the NCAA Tournament’s “No. 4 Seed to Watch” prior to the 2005 NCAA Regionals “Hardly daunted, Army played like a team determined to make school history.” — CHRIS MILTON, Times Herald-Record, following Florida State’s 3-2 defeat of Army at the Tallahassee Regional “You have to give Army a lot of credit. We were really impressed with their ball club last night and equally impressed today. They scrap, they play hard and they’ve got some pretty good talent. I don’t think the general public really knows how good this Army team is.” — STEVE KITTRELL, Head Coach, South Alabama, following Army’s 8-5 defeat of the Jaguars at the Tallahassee Regional “I think the finish wouldn’t have been nearly as exciting if it hadn’t been for the tremendous, competitive play of Army. They set that up with outstanding effort. They hit the ball hard. They hit it far. They hit it often. They hit it off the ground. They hit it when it was in the air. They hit it off the fence. They hit it over the fence. They really did a great job this game. We’re fortunate to win and it was a dramatic win.” — AUGIE GARRIDO, Head Coach, Texas, following Texas’ 14-10 win over Army at the 2009 Austin Regional Final

“Sottolano is a recruiting genius, bringing top-flight talent to a school that has demanding academic standards and a five-year military commitment to boot.” — KEN McMILLAN, Times Herald-Record

“Three Bold Predictions: 1- Army earns a No. 3 seed and makes another Regional title round. Yep, I didn’t blink while typing that, either. The Black Knights made headlines last year with their PL dominance and runner-up finish in the Austin Regional where they played Texas tough and eliminated Boston College and Texas State. The Black Knights are loaded for 2010, as the top five pitchers and five of the top six hitters are back, including one of the better two-way players in the Northeast in Ben Koenigsfeld. This looks like a bonzai year for the Black Knights. That NCAA tournament experience from last year will keep Army in the catbird seat, and confident it can stay there.” — ERIC SORENSON, Easton’s Collegebaseballtoday.com

“The home runs and the pitches will long be forgotten, but the character of the Army baseball team will be long remembered from the NCAA regional tournament. Army coach Joe Sottolano was an impressive figure , whether passionately talking about his players’ effort, or their sacrifices or what may be in store for them in what he called these difficult times. He wasn’t talking about trying to turn a double-play. He was talking about the world. Florida State officially won the regional. But Army’s players stole the show.” — CHARLES GOLDBERG, Birmingham News

“While other rising juniors at elite college programs wonder about next spring’s Major League draft, (Clint) Moore and (Ben) Koenigsfeld and the rest of Army’s team are focused on – in order – duty, honor, country and baseball.” — JEFF MILLS, Greensboro News-Record “2009 Regional Grade Army: A The Black Knights will walk away from this regional with a bitter taste in their mouths, after going into the 9th inning with a four-run lead and losing the title game against Texas. But like BC, hard to fault the Cadets here. What a great effort they gave, nearly pushing this to a fourth day. This team set more than 60 records in their impressive 36-21 season.” — ERIC SORENSON, Easton’s Collegebaseballtoday.com


ARMY AT THE NCAAS


SNAPSHOTS FROM FLORIDA

For the 17th consecutive season, Army will travel to sunny Tampa, Fla., for its spring trip in March. Few teams nationally can boast of the accommodations offered to the Army baseball team during its annual venture south. Invited guests of the New York Yankees franchise, the Black Knights work out daily at the Yankees’ sprawling fourfield minor league complex, located two blocks from George M. Steinbrenner Field, spring home to New York’s Major League club. With access to the Yankees’ medical and training facilities, Army players are guaranteed some of the finest care and treatment afforded any college athlete. Additionally, the Black Knights are awash in the heritage and tradition so synonymous with professional sports’ most storied franchise and its rich player development system. Current big-leaguers, top prospects and former stars routinely walk the complex as Yankee workouts coincide with the Black Knights’ daily practice times. Army will once again square off against top teams from around the country during this year’s trip. In recent years, the Black Knights have defeated opponents such as Central Florida, Cornell, Eastern Kentucky, Florida, South Florida, Georgetown, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Northern Iowa, Northwestern, Ohio State and Pennsylvania during their spring trip. This season’s spring slate includes games against Yale, Indiana, Miami (Ohio), North Dakota State and Dartmouth.


HUDSON VALLEY BASEBALL CLASSIC


MEDIA INFORMATION The 2013 Army baseball media guide has been prepared specifically to assist the media in its coverage of Black Knight baseball. Requests for additional information should be directed to Christian Anderson, assistant director for athletic communications, U.S. Military Academy, 639 Howard Road, West Point, NY 10996.

PRESS CREDENTIALS

Since there is no admission charge for baseball games at Johnson Stadium at Doubleday Field, there is no need to request credentials in advance. A press box is located behind home plate. Photographers are permitted in foul territory beyond either dugout, but are not allowed in the dugouts or in the area directly behind home plate. Photographers are asked to request field access prior to game day. Please contact Christian Anderson in order to confirm those arrangements.

PARKING

There is ample parking in the Clinton Field and Johnson Stadium at Doubleday Field lots, both of which are located directly adjacent to Doubleday Field. A special pass for both lots is required for weekday games prior to 3 p.m., but beyond that time there are no parking restrictions. Parking is open at all hours for weekend games. Media members are encouraged to park a safe distance from the field to avoid foul balls.

ARMY ON THE INTERNET

Information on the Army baseball program can be obtained throughout the year at www.goARMYsports.com. The comprehensive baseball site includes current and past press releases, game notes, up-to-date statistics, player and coach profiles, the 2013 season outlook, roster, schedule and results. Realtime statistics for all home games will be available throughout the year, while box scores and updated season statistics are posted immediately following every game, including road contests. In-game score updates for most contests will also be available on the Army Baseball Twitter page at www.twitter.com/ Army_Baseball.

Army players and coaches will be available to the media throughout the season.

2013 ARMY BASEBALL


WEST POINT The mission of the U.S. Military Academy is to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country; professional growth throughout a career as an officer in the U.S. Army; and a lifetime of selfless service to the Nation. Founded on March 16, 1802, the Academy celebrated its Bicentennial in 2002. But West Point’s role in America’s history dates to the Revolutionary War, when both sides realized the strategic importance of the commanding plateau on the west bank of the Hudson River. Gen. George Washington considered West Point to be the most strategic position in America. He personally selected Thaddeus Kosciuszko, one of the heroes of Saratoga, to design the fortifications in 1778 after problems arose with French engineers originally placed in charge of the design. In 1779, General Washington transferred his headquarters to West Point. Continental soldiers built forts, batteries and defensive barriers. A 100-ton iron chain was extended across the Hudson to control river traffic. Today, several links from that chain are arranged at Trophy Point as a reminder of West Point’s original fortifications. In 1802 President Thomas Jefferson signed the legislation establishing the U.S. Military Academy to create an institution devoted to the arts and sciences of warfare. This effectively eliminated America’s wartime reliance on foreign engineers and artillerists. West Point became the nation’s first engineering school and served as the model for engineering programs which were eventually established at other colleges. Col. Sylvanus Thayer, the “Father of the Military Academy,” served as Superintendent from 1817 through 1833. He upgraded academic standards, instilled military discipline and emphasized honorable conduct. Early graduates were largely responsible for the construction of the nation’s initial railway lines, bridges, harbors, and roads. Although the curriculum maintains its focus on engineering, in recent decades the program of instruction has markedly changed, providing cadets a selection of more than 40 majors. This tradition of academic and military excellence, guided by a demanding standard of moral and ethical conduct, remains the cornerstone of the West Point experience. It is said at West Point that “much of the history we teach was made by those people we taught.” The Academy has produced famous leaders throughout its illustrious past…Civil War Generals Grant, Sherman, Lee, and Jackson, to name but a few. In World War I, 34 of the 38 corps and division commanders were graduates. World War II would see many graduates reach brigadier general or higher, to include Eisenhower, MacArthur, Bradley and Patton. In more recent conflicts, MacArthur, Ridgway, Westmoreland, Abrams, Schwarzkopf and Abizaid were in command. Academy graduates have also excelled in air and space exploration, and countless others went on from military service to become leaders in medicine, law, business, religion and science. Since its founding, the Military Academy fulfills the same mission as it always has . . . to educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets. It accomplishes this mission by developing cadets in three essential areas: intellectual, physical and military. These developmental paths are balanced and fully integrated into the daily life of each young man and woman at the Academy. Intellectual growth is fostered through an academic curriculum that provides a broad liberal education in the arts and sciences. The electives program builds upon the foundation of the core, allowing cadets to develop even greater competence in selected areas. In addition, the fields-of-study and majors nurture the development of creativity, critical thinking, and self-directed learning, essential characteristics of 21st century officers. The four-year academic experience leads to a bachelor of science degree and a commission as a second lieutenant in the Army.

Physical development is achieved through a rigorous athletic and physical education program. Each cadet participates at the intercollegiate, club or intramural level each semester. This readies the cadet for the physical demands of military life and helps teach good judgment and self-discipline, even while under mental and physical stress. Military development begins with the cadet’s first day at West Point. Most military training takes place during the summer, with new cadets undergoing Cadet Basic Training, or Beast Barracks, their first year, followed the second summer by Cadet Field Training. Cadets spend their third and fourth summers serving in active Army units around the world; attending specialty training such as airborne, air assault or northern warfare or helping to train the first- and secondyear cadets. The Cadet Leader Development System seeks to give the cadets increasing responsibility until they are ready to receive their commissions and assume their duties as leaders in today’s Army. Moral and ethical values guide cadets throughout their four years at West Point. Commitment to the Academy’s “Bedrock Values,” based on integrity and respect for the dignity of others, begins on the first day. Integrity is reflected in the Cadet Honor Code which states: “A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do.” Respect denotes that cadets treat others with the same respect and dignity they themselves would expect. At West Point, it is not enough to train leaders—they must be leaders of character. Admission is keenly competitive and is open to young men and women from all states and territories and from every socioeconomic level. Prospective cadets must receive a nomination by a member of Congress or from the Department of the Army. The Academy seeks candidates who possess records of success in academics, athletics and leadership indicative of well-rounded individuals. Although the life of a cadet is demanding, there remains an array of club activities ranging from golf, skiing, boxing, crew and orienteering to such organizations as the cadet radio station, Habitat for Humanity and Big Brothers-Big Sisters. Additionally, the U.S. Corps of Cadets hosts a Special Olympics event each spring. Today’s Military Academy is a vastly different institution from the small academy legislated into being by Congress in 1802. Originally just 1,800 acres, the Academy has grown to more than 16,000 acres. The first graduating class numbered just two men; today’s classes graduate more than 900 new officers annually, both men and women, who are prepared for leadership roles within the Army. With the expansion of knowledge and the changing needs of the United States Army and the nation, life at West Point has changed to keep pace. Ever mindful of its rich heritage, the U.S. Military Academy is developing leaders for tomorrow, and its focus remains the national needs of the 21st century.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

BOO CORRIGAN DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Superintendent Lt. Gen. David H. Huntoon Jr., announced the hiring of Boo Corrigan as the Academy’s director of athletics on Feb. 1, 2011. “We have an opportunity to work every day with a truly exceptional group of young people,” Corrigan said. “The opportunities they receive through intercollegiate athletics will help shape their own leadership styles as they become officers in the U.S. Army. We have a great team that focuses daily on our cadet-athletes. We strive to enhance their overall experience as they develop into the leaders our nation needs.” In his short time as athletic director, Corrigan has strengthened and expanded Army Athletics’ relationships in several key areas. In recent months, Army has secured a new apparel agreement with Nike, a new pouring rights contract with Coke and bringing in the Aspire Group to enhance ticket sales and better serve Army season ticket holders. Corrigan also crafted the Team Army concept, a comprehensive plan designed to add significant value to Army’s corporate sponsorships while maintaining the tradition of West Point Athletics. Corrigan, who has a proven record as a fundraiser, spearheaded changes in the Army A Club and ticket operations that have resulted in more than $20 million dollars in major gifts and record-setting annual giving during his tenure. During that time the funding for a new lacrosse facility, that is scheduled to break ground, was secured. In addition to his role in enhancing revenues for Army Athletics, Corrigan led a strategic planning process that developed a new mission statement and goals for the department. In his first full year at West Point, Corrigan oversaw a program that won three Patriot League cham-

pionship (baseball, women’s soccer, women’s tennis) and sent four teams to the NCAA postseason (rifle). Eighteen cadets earned a major award from their conference, including six Rookies of the Year selections and three Player of the Year winners. Cadet-athletes have continued to thrive in the classroom under Corrigan’s watch. In 2011-12, Army had five Academic All-Americans, including four first-team selections. The Black Knights’ football team boasted two first-team CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in 2011, a first for the program since 1957. The Black Knights also boasted three Patriot League Scholar-Athletes of the Year, including overall men’s winner Brendan Buckley. In addition, former football standout Andrew Rodriguez became the first Army player to win the National Football Foundation’s Willam V. Campbell Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation’s top football scholar-athlete. Rodriguez later was honored with the Amateur Athletic Union’s James E. Sullivan Award as the top amateur athlete in the country. He was the first Army player to receive the award since 1946 and was just the third player in history (Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow) to win both the Campbell Trophy and Sullivan Award. Army has been the focus of national attention since Corrigan’s arrival. He was instrumental in supporting the CBS documentary, “Game of Honor,” that chronicled the Black Knights’ 2011 football season leading up to its annual showdown with arch-rival Navy. Not only was the two-hour program broadcast to a national audience on Showtime, but also won the Emmy Award for Best Sports Documentary. The Army football team was also the focus of a behind-the-scenes book titled, “Soldiers First,” written by New York Times writer Joe Drape. Corrigan has also made his mark on the aesthetics of historic Michie Stadium. In order to upgrade the appearance and provide a better experience for Army fans, Corrigan implemented a Michie Stadium branding and signage campaign that began in 2011. The first phase of the project was completed prior to the 2012 season. In addition to his duties at West Point, Corrigan has been an active leader in the Patriot League, serving as chairman of the conference’s Broadband Committee. Corrigan, who was the senior associate athletic director for external affairs at Duke University starting in August 2008, brings a wealth of leadership to his post. He is a proven administrator with 18 previous years of experience in all areas of revenue generation, external affairs, staff management and leadership. Corrigan’s chief responsibilities at Duke includ-

ed the oversight of the Blue Devil corporate partnerships and the Marketing, Promotions, Ticket, Internet Operations, Sports Information and Video Services departments. In only two years at Duke, Corrigan was responsible for the negotiation of multi-media rights to ISP. A supervisor of the 2009 NCAA Champion women’s tennis and 2010 NCAA Champion men’s lacrosse programs, Corrigan was a part of three NCAA Championships at Duke in just two seasons. He is currently a member of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules committee and the Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Committee, while serving on the Executive Budget Committee at Duke. Prior to arriving at Duke in August of 2008, he oversaw Notre Dame’s corporate relations and marketing as an associate athletic director for five years. During his stint at Notre Dame, Corrigan spearheaded the redesign of its official athletics website and creation of 15-20 hours of original video content weekly. That resulted in a 35 percent increase in page views and unique users. Corrigan also worked directly with ISP Sports, CSTV, and NBC Sports from a sales and marketing standpoint. Before joining the staff at Notre Dame, Corrigan spent nearly three years as the associate athletic director for marketing at the United States Naval Academy. He was responsible for turning the marketing department from a deficit to profit in his first year with full budget responsibility for the department. Corrigan also was intimately involved with the re-branding of the Annual Giving Campaign (The Blue and Gold), which led to an increase of 75 percent year over year donations. His collegiate experience also inclcudes a stint as assistant director of marketing at Florida State from 1992-95. Corrigan is a 1990 University of Notre Dame graduate with a degree in economics. He is married to the former Kristen Acetoa, a former field hockey and lacrosse player at the University of Virginia who also earned a master’s degree from the school. The couple has three children, Finley (11), Tre (9) and Brian (8). He is the youngest of seven children of Gene and Lena Corrigan.

HEAD COACH JOE SOTTOLANO JOE SOTTOLANO HEAD COACH 14TH SEASON ITHACA COLLEGE, 1990

Joe Sottolano has been very forthright regarding the lofty goals he’s established for his Army baseball program ever since taking the reins of the club. There’s very little guess work involved because his sights remain fixed on the same target every year: capture a Patriot League championship and win in the NCAA Tournament. “In my opinion, those should always be the goals for this program,” Sottolano is quick to stress. “We should never aspire to anything less.” No one can debate the feasibility of that mission considering that Army finds itself in the midst of the most successful nine-year stretch in school history. In addition to making four trips to the NCAA Regionals in that time, the Black Knights have registered at least 25 wins in eight of the last nine seasons, captured six Patriot League regular-season championships and made eight appearances in the Patriot League Tournament during that span. Army has posted five 30-win campaigns during the run. Army is coming off a historic season in 2012 as the Black Knights set a program record with 41 vic-

30

tories en route to another Patriot League Championship and NCAA Regional appearance. Army set or tied 45 team, individual or freshman Academy records during a year that saw the Black Knights run away with the Patriot League regular-season title. Army went 18-2 in the conference, finishing five games in front of second-place Holy Cross to claim the program’s sixth regular-season conference title over the past nine years. The Black Knights then knocked off the Crusaders in three games to win the Patriot League Championship Series and advance to the Charlottesville Regional. Army finished the season ranked among the national leaders in several categories, including earned run average (31st, 3.25), stolen bases (10th, 109) and win-loss percentage (ninth, .732). For the fourth time in nine years, the Black Knights received votes in the final National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) national poll (2004, 2005, 2009, 2012). Army players dominated the Patriot League’s postseason awards in 2012, placing five on the all-conference first team and sweeping the loop’s major awards. Three Black Knights (Chris Rowley, Kevin McKague and Harold Earls) went on to win All-America honors, while Sottolano added a third Patriot League Coach of the Year award to his resume. Army made run to the Patriot League Championship Series in 2011, before falling to Navy in three games. The Black Knights finished that season with a 22-26 mark, extending its streak of 20-win seasons to eight in a row. Clint Moore was selected in the MLB Draft after collecting a plethora of postseason plaudits. The 2010 team posted a 28-17 overall record and won the Patriot League’s regular-season title with a conference mark of 16-4. The Black Knights bowed out of the league tournament in the semifinal series, however, falling to Bucknell in three games. Matt Fouch was picked in the MLB Draft in June of 2010 after being named Patriot League Pitcher of the Year earlier that spring. Following a slow start to its conference slate in 2009, the Black Knights caught fire down the stretch, sprinting to the top of the Patriot League standings by winning 12 of their final 14 conference tilts. The late-season run ensured Army a share of its second straight regular season Patriot League title and the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. Army captured its fifth Patriot League championship by beating Holy Cross in a Patriot League Tournament semifinal series before dispatching Lafayette in two consecutive games in the Patriot League Championship Series. Army made its mark on the national scene four years ago when the Black Knights reached the finals of the Austin Regional. It marked the first time the Black Knights, or any Patriot League team for that matter, reached a regional final. Seeded fourth at the Austin Regional, Army suffered a hard-fought 3-1 loss to No. 1 national seed Texas in an opening-round matchup before stunning both second-seeded Texas State and third-seeded Boston College en route to a rematch with Texas in

the Austin Regional Final. The Black Knights carried a 10-6 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning of that contest and found themselves three outs away from a second “championship” clash with the Longhorns that would have sent the winner to the Super Regionals. But a weary Army pitching staff tired and Texas prevailed 14-10, ending the Black Knights’ Cinderella run. On its way to a third NCAA Regional appearance in six years and an overall record of 36-21, Army established or tied 67 school and Patriot League individual and team records. For the third time in six years, Army received votes in the final NCBWA national poll (2004, 2005, 2009). Overall, the 14th-year mentor sports a 362-2635 (.579) career coaching record and is 283-176-2 (.616) the past nine years along the banks of the Hudson. While directing Army to its most successful nine-year stretch in school history, Sottolano has also guided the Black Knights to unparalleled success against arch rival Navy. Army captured a school-record ninth straight series “star” following last season’s sweep in Annapolis. The Black Knights have captured 31 of the last 40 contests against the Midshipmen over the past nine years. Army won three of four games against Navy in 2009 and 2010, swept four games from Navy in 2008, took three of four regular-season meetings with the Mids in 2007, then dismissed Navy from the Patriot League Tournament with a 5-3 victory in the PLT Elimination Game. Navy’s last series win dates back to 2003, when the Mids nabbed three of four verdicts from the Black Knights. Since that time, Army registered its first four-game sweep of Navy in 2005, a pair of four-game sweeps in Annapolis (2008, 2012), and captured three of four regular season series pairings in 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010, while ending the Mids’ season in the Patriot League tourney in 2007. During the 2011 campaign, Sottolano accomplished another significant personal milestone when he picked up his 300th coaching victory of his career. He reached the figure following Army’s 10-6 victory over Davidson on February 19, 2011. He notched his 250th career win against arch-rival

HEAD COACH JOE SOTTOLANO Navy on April 12, 2009, in the back end of a doubleheader sweep of the Mids. Army accomplished the feat in style, posting a 6-0 shutout and securing the team’s sixth consecutive “star” against Navy. Ironically, Sottolano registered his 200th career win against Navy as well, garnering that victory almost exactly two years to the day (April 21, 2007), in the third game of the teams’ four-game series. Sottolano surpassed Dan Roberts (281 wins) as Army’s all-time winningest coach two years ago, and begins his 14th season with a program-record 362 victories. Sottolano started his career as an assistant under Roberts. Sottolano added to his long list of honors in the summer of 2009 when he was named the ABCA/ Diamond Sports Company NCAA Division I Regional Coach of the Year. Outstanding pitching has been a hallmark of the Black Knights’ recent run of success. Army has ranked among national leaders in earned run average during four of the past eight seasons. The Black Knights ranked seventh nationally in ERA (3.28) in 2006, improving from the No. 8 spot (3.08) they held in the national rankings the previous year. Army also ranked 12th nationally (3.44) in ERA in 2004 and finished 27th in the category in 2008 (3.77). Army was the only Division I team to list in the top 12 nationally in ERA from 2004 through 2006 and one of two clubs to stand in the top eight nationally during the 2005 and 2006 campaigns. Additionally, Army was one of just seven Division I squads to rank among the top 27 teams nationally in earned run average from 2004 through 2007. During that time, the Black Knights’ pitching staff combined to fire 22 shutouts. Army paced the Patriot League in ERA in 2009, ranking 73rd nationally at 5.04. In 2010, the Black Knights topped the conference and ranked 30th in the country with an earned run average of 4.34. Last season, Army led the Patriot League in ERA (conference games only) at 4.30. A native of Middletown, N.Y., Sottolano arrived at the Academy in 1992, serving as an assistant on Army’s baseball staff until his promotion to head coach in 2000. In the midst of his second decade as a member of Army’s baseball staff, Sottolano is in his 14th season presiding over the Black Knights’ diamond program. Following a successful eight-year stint as an as-

sistant on the West Point coaching staff, he was named Army’s interim head coach during the early portion of the 2000 season. Sottolano inherited a team that had captured just one of its first seven games and had been forecasted for a third-place finish in the Patriot League standings in a preseason poll of the conference’s head coaches. He proceeded to instill a quiet sense of confidence in his gritty group of Black Knights. Sottolano quickly imparted his aggressive style of play and relentless attitude on the group, taking charge of the club just three days prior to the beginning of Army’s spring trip to Florida. And the Black Knights responded well to his teachings, winning five of seven games during the venture south to post the school’s finest spring-trip record in more than a decade. The “Cardiac Cadets” would register 18 comefrom-behind victories during the season, with an amazing 12 of those wins coming during Army’s last at-bat. Included in the group was a riveting comeback victory over Bucknell in the Elimination Game of the Patriot League Tournament, a triumph that propelled the Black Knights into the conference’s championship series against regular-season titlist and top seed Navy. Displaying the same type of fire and determination that characterized their season, the Black Knights rode a pair of comeback victories to stun the favored Midshipmen on their home field. There were seven emotionally charged “walk-off” wins in all that season, an incredible number considering that Army notched just 15 victories overall the previous year. Shortly after leading the Black Knights to their first NCAA Regional appearance, Sottolano was rewarded for his marvelous efforts by having the “interim” label lifted from his title. The Black Knights lost several key players from that championship squad and slumped to a 1727-1 overall record in 2001. After a slow start the following season, Sottolano’s club closed the year with a flourish, winning 14 of its last 16 contests. A dominant pitching staff was key to that success, accounting for five shutouts in the last 10 games. In fact, Army’s talented young staff yielded more than two runs in just two of the Black Knights’ final 11 outings. With a squad rife with freshmen and sophomores in 2003, Army closed at 17-25-1 overall, narrowly missing the Patriot League Tournament

on the final day of the season. That promising performance set the stage for the Black Knights’ magical two-year run that followed, a tear through the Patriot League that culminated in their third conference title in six years in 2005. Sottolano led the Black Knights to a Patriot League Tournament title and the school’s second NCAA Tournament berth in 2004 after guiding Army to a conference crown and the school’s first NCAA Regional appearance in 2000. Army captured the Patriot crown after entering as the tourney’s No. 3 seed that season. Despite registering early season victories over the likes of nationally ranked Florida and Iowa during its southern trip in 2004, Army began the season with a 10-9 record. Included in the mark was a disappointing 10-3 loss to Lehigh in the Black Knights’ conference opener. No one could have envisioned what would follow as Army steamrolled to 27 victories over its next 31 games. After dropping their conference debut to Lehigh, the Black Knights reeled off 16 consecutive victories. The winning streak, which spanned three weeks, marked the longest single season victory string in school history and the Black Knights’ longest winning streak of the modern era. It also ranks as the longest winning streak in Patriot League history. Late-game comebacks became commonplace during the record-setting run as Army registered six victories in its final plate appearance. In addition to boasting three “walk-off” wins, the Black Knights overcame a 10-0 deficit to defeat Pace in one nonleague encounter. Sweeping past Lafayette by the scores of 3-1 and 16-2 in the Patriot League Championship Series at Doubleday Field, the Black Knights continued their dominance at West Point. Army posted a gaudy 21-2 record on its home field, establishing school records for home victories and home winning percentage, while enjoying a tremendous home-field advantage. A national coach of the year candidate in both 2004 and 2005, Sottolano guided the Black Knights to a 39-14 record in 2005 and their second consecutive Patriot League championship, only the second time Army had won consecutive league titles of any kind. The Black Knights also registered 17 Patriot League victories that year, a conference record the Black Knights first established in 1994 and equaled in 2004. Named Patriot League Coach of the Year for the second straight season in 2005, Sottolano guided the Black Knights to their fourth Patriot League championship and the school’s third NCAA Regional appearance (all under Sottolano’s watch). In leading Army to its third postseason appearance in six years, the high energy field boss presided over a team that set a single season school record for victories (39) for the second consecutive year and established or tied 85 individual and team, school and Patriot League records. The Black Knights set the previous school record for wins only a year earlier when they posted 37 victories and established or tied 84 league and school standards. For the second consecutive season, Army garnered votes in national polls and boasted a pair of All-America selections, this after featuring two All-America selections, two Freshman All-America choices and an Academic All-America honoree in 2004. Army closed 2005 on a tear, capturing 21 of its

last 26 games and 26 of 32 decisions overall. After opening the season with four consecutive losses, the Black Knights won 39 of 49 outings, including six straight during their spring trip to Florida, the first unbeaten southern swing in school history. At year’s end, Army’s overall winning percentage of .736 ranked eighth among national leaders. The Black Knights posted a 19-4 record in 2005 at West Point’s Doubleday Field and enter 2012 having prevailed in 122 of their last 171 home contests (122-47-2) dating back to 2004. That translates into a flashy .719 winning percentage. Army received votes in the NCBWA final poll in both 2004, 2005, and again in 2009. The Black Knights also received votes in the NCBWA preseason poll in 2005, 2006 and 2010, and in Colleigate Baseball’s preseason ranking in 2005 and 2006. Army continued its winning ways under Sottolano in 2006, posting a 30-20-1 record. That marked the first time in school history that the Black Knights notched 30 wins during three consecutive seasons; quite an accomplishment when considering that Army had never won more than 26 games in a season prior to 2004. The Black Knights registered 25 victories in both 2007 and 2008. Featuring a youthful team that had been forecasted for a third place conference finish prior to 2008, Sottolano led the Black Knights to a record fifth consecutive 25-victory season and the program’s fourth regular season Patriot League title. Three members of that squad were selected in the 2008 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, the highest single-season total in school history. Despite those graduation losses, Army posted its most successful showing the following year. Prior to assuming the role as Army’s head coach, Sottolano served as an assistant to former head coach Dan Roberts for eight years. Sottolano, who added the title of instructor in the Military Academy’s Department of Physical Education in the fall of 1994, shouldered primary responsibilities as Army’s pitching coach, while tending to all other fac-

Sottolano, who graduated from Ithaca College in 1990 with a bachelor’s degree in physical education, was a four-year varsity letterwinner as a lefthanded pitcher and a member of Bomber squads that made four consecutive appearances at the NCAA Division III Regionals. Voted Most Outstanding Player in the 1988 College World Series, he registered a 21-9 career record, posting a 3.26 earned run average and guided the Bombers to a Division III national title. Though his collegiate career ended that spring, Sottolano continued hurling. He was one of 36 players nation-wide invited to try out for Team USA that summer and remained one of the premier pitchers in the Hudson Valley Rookie League. Highly respected among Eastern baseball circles, Sottolano served as pitching coach at Drexel University in the spring of 1991, before returning to Ithaca as the Bombers’ graduate assistant coach that fall. He completed work on a master’s degree in physical education and teaching from Ithaca in 1993. In 1997, Sottolano oversaw a pitching staff that helped Army to a Patriot League championship, the school’s first outright conference title since 1966. He was also chiefly responsible for recruiting that league-winning squad. During the summer of 1999, he served as head coach for the New York Generals of the American Collegiate Baseball League. In his first season at the Generals’ helm, Sottolano guided the team to a 28-12 record and a regular season league championship; this after the team finished with a losing record the previous year.

Since assuming control of Army’s program, Sottolano has continued to shape the mindset of his club in the form of his own winning persona. He has directed the Black Knights to nine 20-victory seasons, five 30-win showings and nine winning records during his 13 years in charge. He has also instituted an aggressive recruiting plan that has injected a bounty of talent into West Point’s program. During his 21-year association with the Army baseball program, the Black Knights have captured six Patriot League championships (1997, 2000, 2004, 2005, 2009, 2012), seven regular season league titles (1997, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012), one conference divisional crown (1994) and made the only five NCAA Regional trips in school history (2000, 2004, 2005, 2009, 2012). Additionally, 10 Army players have been selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft during his 13-year head coaching tenure, including nine since 2005. Two players -- Nick Hill and Milan Dinga -- were chosen in the top 10 rounds of the 2007 draft. Army has featured 66 first team All-Patriot League selections since 1993. Since 2004, 14 different Army players have garnered 44 All-America certificates. The list includes those selected to preseason, postseason, freshman and academic All-America squads. Sottolano has earned Patriot League Coach of the Year honors three times and remains the only individual in the 22-year history of the conference to earn league coach of the year accolades in backto-back seasons (2004-05). Sottolano and his wife, Lori, reside at West Point with their two sons, Nicholas (10), and Tyler (7).

COACHING STAFF MATT REID ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH 6TH SEASON RICHMOND, 2002

Matt Reid, who rates as one of the bright, young talents in the college baseball coaching ranks, is in his sixth season as a member of Army’s coaching staff. After serving as the Black Knights’ top assistant coach in 2010, Reid picked up the title of associate head coach prior to the 2011 season. At West Point, Reid works primarily with Army’s infielders and hitters. Off the field, he focuses attention on national recruiting with an emphasis placed on the East Coast. Since Reid arrived, Army established a single season school record for fielding percentage in 2009 (.970) after narrowly missing the mark the previous year. The Black Knights then obliterated that record with a .975 fielding percentage in 2012 to rank 32nd nationally. Three of the Black Knights’ starting four infielders earned All-Patriot League honors three years in a row (2009-11), including Clint Moore, who garnered AllAmerica laurels in 2009. Moore and fellow infielders Zach Price and Harold Earls have been named Patriot League Rookie of the Year during Reid’s tenure at the Academy. In 2011, three Army infielders were named to the All-Patriot League first team with Steve May joining Moore and Price on the unit. Last year, Price was named to the All-Patriot League first team, while Earls collected the conference’s Rookie of the Year award. Earls was also tabbed a Freshman All-American following his standout rookie campaign that saw him finish with a .331

batting average. Price, who was named a CoSIDA Academic All-American (first team), became the first Army player to earn a Rawling Gold Glove after the second baseman recorded a sparkling .996 fielding percentage. The Black Knights have taken well to Reid’s offensive teachings as well, establishing school records for batting average (.329), base hits (626), doubles (117), triples (18), home runs (57), runs scored (446), runs batted in (408), total bases (950) and slugging percentage (.500) in 2009. It marked the second straight season that Army set school records for doubles and home runs. Army has improved its slugging percentage by more than 150 points since Reid arrived at West Point. Reid has also played a large role in the great success Army has experienced in its overall recruiting the past five years. Before joining head coach Joe Sottolano’s staff in the summer of 2007, Reid had spent the previous two years on the baseball coaching staff at UNC Asheville. Reid focused his work on the club’s infielders and hitters, while assisting with recruiting duties during his tenure at UNC Asheville. In that time, he helped the Bulldogs increase their fielding percentage from .943 to .958. Additionally, UNC Asheville turned a Big South Conference-leading 59 double plays in his last season to rank 34th nationally. Prior to his arrival at Asheville, Reid served as assistant coach at Old Dominion University where he worked with the Monarchs’ outfielders and hitters. He assumed duties as baseball camp director at ODU, and filled the same role at UNC Asheville. A 2002 graduate of Richmond, where he lettered for four years on the baseball diamond, Reid assisted the staff at Virginia Commonwealth University during the 2003-04 season while completing his master’s

degree in sport leadership. His experience with organizing fundraisers for non-profit ventures while at VCU included raising money for an area cancer center. Prior to his studies at VCU, Reid served as assistant coach at Louisburg College where his responsibilities with the baseball team included working with the squad’s infielders and coaching first base. He began his coaching career at Virginia Military Institute. In addition to his collegiate coaching background, Reid has gained extensive experience during the summer months, guiding the Peninsula Pilots of the Coastal Plains League for two years. He led the Pilots to a 34-20 record (.630) and an appearance in the league championship in his first season and finished with a two-year mark of 58-38 (.604) at the Peninsula helm. The native of Amherst, Mass., was selected team captain during his senior year at Richmond and helped the Spiders to a pair of NCAA Regional berths. He graduated in 2001 with a degree in sports administration. Reid, whose father Jim is a member of the University of Virginia football coaching staff after serving as an assistant with the Miami Dolphins and as head football coach at VMI for two years, interned with the front office of the Pittsburgh Pirates during the summer of 2004. He also worked in Richmond’s sports information office as a senior. Reid is single and currently resides in Fort Montgomery.

COACHING STAFF ANTHONY DeCICCO

LT. COL. DAVE BOROWICZ

ASSISTANT COACH 4TH SEASON EASTERN CONNECTICUT ST., 2001

ASSISTANT COACH 3RD SEASON WEST POINT, 1992

Anthony DeCicco is in his fourth season as the Black Knights’ pitching coach after being added to the staff by head coach Joe Sottolano prior to the 2010 campaign. Last season, DeCicco presided over an Army pitching staff that led the Patriot League and ranked 31st nationally in earned run average (3.25). The Black Knights also ranked 21st in the country in hits allowed per nine innings (8.03), 28th in walks allowed per nine innings (2.81) and 18th in WHIP (1.20). DeCicco helped Army ace Chris Rowley establish a number of Academy single-season records, including wins (11), innings pitched (97.1) and consecutive scoreless innings (29). Rowley, who was tabbed Patriot League Pitcher of the Year and earned a spot on the allleague first team, collected three All-America certificates. DeCicco also helped Logan Lee earn a spot on the All-Patriot League second team. During the 2011 campaign, under the guidance of DeCicco, Army ranked second in the Patriot League in ERA (5.09). The Black Knights led the conference in fewest walks per nine innings, while listing second in opponents’ batting average (.282). Army led the conference in ERA during league games, posting a 4.30 mark versus Patriot League foes. In 2010, DeCicco’s pitching staff topped the Patriot League and ranked 30th nationally in ERA (4.34). The staff also paced the conference in strikeouts per nine innings (7.09). Starting pitcher Matt Fouch earned the conference’s Pitcher of the Year award and was named to the All-Patriot League first team. Relief pitcher Kevin McKague, who established Army’s single-season saves record (13), was unanimously selected to the all-league first unit as well. Before arriving at West Point, DeCicco spent one season as pitching and catching coach, as well as recruiting coordinator, at Fordham University. Prior to his one-year stint in the Bronx, DeCicco logged six years on the coaching staff at the University of Vermont. He arrived at Vermont from Eastern Connecticut State University, where he served on the staff of the 2002 NCAA Division III National Champions. During his stay at Fordham, DeCicco helped the Rams to a fourth-place finish in the Atlantic 10 Conference with a 16-11 mark, despite being tabbed to finish ninth in the preseason poll. As Vermont’s recruiting coordinator, as well as pitching and catching coach, DeCicco was instrumental in the Catamounts capturing the program’s first two America East Conference regular-season championships in 2003 and 2006. Under DeCicco’s tutelage, the Vermont pitching staff excelled, topping the America East in team earned run average in both 2002 and 2005, while ranking among national leaders both years. The Catamounts also ranked sixth nationally in ERA in 2003. Additionally, seven Vermont pitchers were drafted or signed by Major League baseball organizations from 2003 to 2009. A 2001 graduate of ECSU, DeCicco received his bachelor’s degree in physical education. He earned a master’s degree from Vermont in education and leadership in 2005. DeCicco was a standout catcher during his playing days for the Warriors and joined the staff of longtime head coach Bill Holowaty following graduation. DeCicco and his wife, Elizabeth, have a son, Theodore (7) and a daughter, Peyton (4). The family resides in nearby Highland Falls, N.Y.

Lt. Col. Dave Bororwicz is currently in the third season of his third tour on the Army coaching staff, having served as an athletic intern with the baseball program following his graduation from the Academy during the spring of 1992 and assisting the Black Knights during the 2003 and 2004 campaigns. After leaving West Point following the 2004 baseball season, Borowicz spent a year at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. From there, he was assigned to the 2nd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division where he served as the Brigade Engineer (2005-2006) and the Battalion Executive Officer of 2nd Brigade Special Troops Battalion (2006-2007). While there, Borowicz spent 15 months serving in Iraq as part of the surge for Operation Iraqi Freedom. His unit was awarded the Meritorious Unit Citation for their performance while deployed and was influential in the SunniAwakening south of Baghdad. After returning from Iraq, Borowicz and his family moved to Madison, Wis., and he pursued a doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering. He received his PhD in December of 2010 in Civil and Environmental Engineering and arrived back at West Point in January to teach in the Department of Civil & Mechanical Engineering. Borowicz has been presented with several military awards, to include: the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Humanitarian Service Medal, the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon, the Air Assault Badge and the Combat Action Badge. A four-time letterwinner during his years in the “Black, Gold, and Gray,” Borowicz was a standout pitcher for the Black Knights, holding a regular turn in Army’s starting rotation for three consecutive years. A district Academic All-America selection and Rhodes Scholar candidate as a senior, the former team captain was a member of Army teams that defeated arch-rival Navy in four consecutive “star” matchups. Borowicz will forever be etched into the Army record books having been credited with a save against Long Island as a freshman in 1989, helping to secure the program’s 1,000th all-time victory. Three years later, he narrowly missed writing a bit more history when his bid to throw the fourth no-hitter in school history fell just short, settling for a one-hit defeat of Princeton. The native of Milwaukee, Wis., ranks 25th on Army’s career innings pitched list at 157.0, while is career earned run average mark of 4.47 lists among the Black Knights all-time leaders. The Midwestern product assists in the instruction of Army’s pitchers and outfielders on the diamond. Borowicz and his wife, Cindy, reside at West Point with their daughters, Maggie, 18, and Allison, 17; and son, Josh, 11.

2013 SEASON OUTLOOK

2013 ARMY BASEBALL

2013 SEASON OUTLOOK After winning its sixth Patriot League tournament title last spring, the Army baseball program looks to reload again this season and challenge for back-to-back championships in 2013. The Black Knights steamrolled the Patriot League during the regular season last year en route to an 18-2 conference record. The 18 league wins established a Patriot League standard and delivered Army its fourth regular-season title in the last five years. The Black Knights, who advanced to their fifth NCAA Regional in school history after defeating Holy Cross in the Patriot League Championship Series, won a school-record 41 games in 2012. Army swept Navy in Annapolis, produced three All-Americans, collected all four of the Patriot League’s major awards and eclipsed 45 Academy records during one of the most successful seasons in school history. With several key pieces from the 2012 squad returning to the fold this spring, the expectations remain high for the 2013 Black Knights. Army head coach Joe Sottolano’s goals before every season include winning the Patriot League regular-season title, capturing the conference tournament crown and winning in the NCAA Regionals. With a talented roster, which includes six-time All-American Chris Rowley on the mound and Freshmen All-American Harold Earls near the top of the batting order, the bar is set high for this year’s club. “The goals of the program remain the same,” said Sottolano. “I think the young players we have are good baseball players, and it is our job to put ourselves in a position to win the Patriot League Championship. The biggest thing is to get into the conference tournament, and then we will take it day by day. “We are athletic enough to accomplish what we want to this season,” added Sottolano. “Obviously, we know we are young in a lot of areas and we’re not as physical because of our youth, but we have good size, and the strength will come as guys develop.” One of the Patriot League’s preeminent programs, Army has captured seven regular-season

Patriot League titles and six Patriot League tournament crowns since joining the circuit in 1993. Six of those regular-season championships have come in the last nine years, a span that has seen the Black Knights earn eight trips to the league’s season-ending tournament. Army has also sent 10 players to the minor leagues over the last decade, more than any other Patriot League program during that time. Sottolano, the program’s all-time winningest coach with 362 career victories, has guided Army to the NCAAs five times since taking over the reins of the program 14 years ago. The Black Knights have won at least 30 games five times since 2004 and advanced to the NCAA Regionals four times during that stretch. “The program, over the last several years, has consistently won championships and competed for championships,” said Sottolano. “The culture within our program is strong, and our captains and seniors have done a great job maintaining that culture. This is a very hungry group, and they believe they can win a championship. We need to understand the team we are and what we have to do in order to be successful. We will build on the things we know that we can do well, and make sure we do them as well as we can.” In order to maintain the championship form that has become the norm in 2013, Army must replace four starting position players and one of its top starting pitchers. The Black Knights lost All-Patriot League performers J.T. Watkins, Kevin McKague, Cody Murtle, Zach Price and Logan Lee to graduation last spring. All five players played vital roles in the Black Knights capturing the 2012 Patriot League title. Watkins was a four-year starter at catcher and a two-time all-conference pick. Despite missing 10 games due to injury midway through last season, he batted .316 with five home runs and nine doubles en route to first-team all-league honors. Watkins also excelled defensively behind the plate, and brought tremendous leadership to the team. He will be sorely missed in 2013.

HEAD COACH JOE SOTTOLANO McKague was named the Patriot League Player of the Year in 2012 after leading the conference with a .379 batting average. The first baseman, who graduated as Army’s all-time leader in base hits (283), smashed 16 doubles and five home runs last spring. He also led the Black Knights with 45 RBI. Murtle collected All-Patriot League honors for the first time in his career last season as the right fielder produced some outstanding power numbers with five homers, eight doubles and 41 RBI. A four-year starter at second base, Price batted .324 with eight doubles, three triples and 20 stolen bases last spring. He also excelled defensively, earning a Rawlings Gold Glove after committing just one error and finishing with a sparkling .996 fielding percentage. Price collected Patriot League ScholarAthlete of the Year plaudits and was named an Academic All-American after the season. Lee posted an 8-2 record with four shutouts and a 3.13 earned run average. The crafty lefty etched his name into the Army record books when he tossed the fourth no-hitter in school history versus Bucknell late in the season. Despite the significant losses, Army welcomes back several key contributors to last season’s squad. Sottolano and his coaching staff have also assembled a deep and talented 15-member freshman class, and several of those new faces will be called upon immediately. “The Academy is a place built on leadership, and we expect others to step up to fill the void created by the graduation of last year’s seniors,” said Sottolano. “I think we will always have good leaders within our program; that’s what the Academy builds. I look at it as an opportunity for people to take the

CHRIS ROWLEY lead role and build on what our previous players have already built.” Senior Andrew Johnson and junior Gunnar Carroll will serve as the team’s co-captains this season. Johnson saw time last season both at both catcher and designated hitter, while Carroll emerged as one of the top closers in the Patriot League with a 2.48 ERA and eight saves in 22 appearances. “Andrew is a pretty optimistic individual, and people respect how hard he works and how dedicated he is to each and every member of the team,” said Sottolano. “He’s a strong-hearted person who truly cares about his teammates. “Gunnar is the same way; he’s an extremely hard worker and disciplined,” mentioned Sottolano. “He’s a hard-nosed individual who holds himself accountable as well as others. Both men have great leadership qualities, but lead in different ways. They complement each other very well.” Sottolano acknowledges the Black Knights will be young in certain areas offensively, but he sees versatility as a potential strength for the club. “I think we will have great versatility within the lineup this season,” said Sottolano. “I don’t think you’re going to see those typical 3-4-5 hitters in the middle of our lineup, but you will see a steady lineup. “I believe our lineup will compete up and down the order, and be able to do the things that are necessary to play offense and produce runs, rather than just hit. Putting together consistent approaches at the plate is going to be key. Everyone in the lineup is going to have to be steady. We are going to have to be a team that plays offense really well and finds ways to produce runs.” Earls, who batted .341 last year en route to earning Patriot League Rookie of the Year honors, figures to remain one of the catalysts to Army’s offense

ALEX JENSEN “We have another very difficult schedule,” said Sottolano. “We are going to play some good ballclubs and some very talented teams that are going to be very physical. The teams we are going to face are probably going to be more physical just based on the sheer fact that they are older. That’s okay; you don’t need to win games by being more physical. We like the fact that we’re playing good ballclubs, because we’re going to learn a lot. We have to view every game as a test and an opportunity to learn more and to get better. We need to play as much as we can play, we need to learn as we’re playing and keep making the adjustments as necessary so that we’re playing our best baseball by the time we get to the conference season. If we can be resilient, I think you will see a team that grows and mature throughout the course of the season.”

Sophomore Alex Jensen, who was one of just games with five starts last year, will compete with two Army players (Price was the other) to start all freshman Ryan Levenhagen for the starting role at 56 games for the Black Knights in 2012, will return first base. Mescher, who stands at well over six feet to his familiar role at shortstop this season. Jensen tall, has power potential. “Patrick is a big, strong and physical young batted .264 with seven doubles, 23 RBI and 22 man,” said Sottolano. “He fields his position real runs scored as a freshman. “Alex is a tough, hard-nosed ball player,” said well, and we believe he can become a complete ball player for us if he makes the jumps we think he can make. “Ryan is a talented freshman who will have a pretty good career, offensively, once he fills out,” added Sottolano. “He is developing defensively each and every day. I think Ryan will become a complete player once he logs some innings and matures a little bit.” Fellow freshman Brock Davidson also figures to see some time at first base when he’s not on the pitching mound.

OUTFIELD

INFIELD Army will have to replace two starters on the infield following the graduation of All-Patriot League performers Kevin McKague (1B) and Zach Price (2B). Both players earned a slew of accolades last spring with McKague collecting Patriot League Player of the Year honors and Price earning Academic All-America laurels. Their departure leaves a huge void on the right side of the infield, as the duo combined to produce 32 extra-base hits, 89 runs scored and 70 RBI. Both players were also outstanding defenders with McKague posting a .997 fielding percentage and Price a .996 en route to earning the program’s first-ever Rawlings Gold Glove. “Pitching and defense wins championships, there is no question about that,” said Sottolano. “The ability to pick up the baseball allows our pitching staff to relax and stay composed. I think our group of infielders is athletic enough and talented

MARK McCANTS

Army will need to replace one of its starting outfielders this season after losing All-Patriot League performer Cody Murtle to graduation. Murtle batted just .241 last season, but the right fielder smacked four home runs, eight doubles and drove in 41 runs, and his production will need to be replaced. The Black Knights return sophomores Daniel Cortes and Dakari Cooke, who saw significant playing time as freshmen last season. Cortes was Army’s primary option in left field, starting 54 games in 2012. He played a key role in setting the table for Army’s offense last year, establishing an Academy single-season record with 40 walks as a freshman. Cortes also ranked among the team leaders with 15 stolen bases, 11 sacrifice bunts and five sacrifice flies. The scrappy outfielder batted .273 with five doubles, 45 runs scored and 23 RBI. Cortes also played well defensively, handling 59 chances flawlessly in left field. “Daniel will certainly see time in the outfield, whether that’s in left field or center,” said Sottolano.

2013 ARMY BASEBALL


2013 SEASON OUTLOOK CATCHER

DANIEL CORTES “He is a real good leadoff hitter who continues to develop defensively.” Cooke, meanwhile, split time in center field with Matthew Carter last season. The athletic outfield prospect appeared in 23 games with 15 starts. He batted .264 with a pair of doubles, nine runs scored and five RBI. Cooke was also 5-for-6 on stolen base attempts, and was perfect in the field. “Dakari is really starting to understand things, and he has a great deal of potential moving forward,” commented Sottolano. Senior Michael Sands has gotten better over the offseason and could claim the starting spot in right field. “We feel like it is Mike’s time,” said Sottolano. “He has certainly gotten a lot better, and we’re excited to see what this season brings for him.” There are several promising outfield candidates within the freshman class led by Jacob Page, who can play all three positions. “Jacob runs well and hits with some power,” said Sottolano. “We believe he will have a very bright future. I think his development will be an important factor on the success that we have this season.” Sophomore Mark McCants, who saw time exclusively as the designated hitter in 2012, could see time in the outfield this spring. McCants batted .246 with two home runs and 28 RBI as a freshman a season ago. “Mark has developed very well,” said Sottolano. “He is surprisingly fast and he’s really doing a nice job of becoming a good outfielder.” Junior Jon Crucitti will add valued depth to the Black Knights’ outfield corps. “It’s great to have Jon back this season,” noted Sottolano. “Jon is a natural born leader, hard-nosed competitor and great young man. Watching him progress is going to be important to us. He’s someone that we are looking to develop this year.”

CATCHING PROSPECTS

Army will have Name B-T to replace J.T. Andrew Johnson R-R Watkins behind Connor Love R-R the plate this seaDavis Marlar R-R son. Watkins, who Ben Smith R-R started 194 games the past four years, capped his career by earning All-Patriot League and All-Northeast Region honors last spring. Senior Andrew Johnson, who stepped into the starting lineup last season when Watkins got injured, has been penciled in as the Black Knights’ starting catcher in 2013. Johnson was called upon to start Army’s first eight Patriot League games behind the dish last spring and played well in Watkins’ absence. He finished the year with a .291 batting average, 15 runs scored and five RBI in 23 games. He started 19 contests, splitting time between catcher and designated hitter after proving himself at the plate. He will be counted on to play well defensively, help manage Army’s pitching staff and provide some offense. “Andrew did a great job for us last year,” said Sottolano. “He caught two conference weekends for us, and we won all eight of those games. He is a very good leader, excellent blocker and receiver and has good arm strength. “Andrew also did a nice job for us offensively last year as well. He has developed into a mature young man who understands the game. We look for him to lead this pitching staff. He has a tough road because it is a young pitching staff, and he has to take ownership of the staff and lead it to success.”

Junior Connor Love, whose 2012 campaign was derailed by injury, returns to the fold looking to make an impact this season. Love appeared in 16 games last year, with 11 starts. “Connor works real hard each and every day to improve, and he continues to develop,” said Sottolano. “We are starting to see significant gains, and he will push Andrew for the starting position.” Freshmen Davis Marlar and Ben Smith figure to push both upperclassmen throughout the season and provide valued depth to the position. Both will also see time in the bullpen, helping to prepare Army’s pitchers before entering games. “Davis has a very strong arm, and he also receives the ball well,” said Sottolano. “He’s not tall, but he’s very physical. He has good power offensively. I think he will develop into a real good ball player. “Ben had a lot of success in high school, and he’s a solid baseball player,” added Sottolano. “There is a lot to learn in that position, and I think he will develop into a good catcher once the game slows down for him.”

PITCHERS The Army pitching staff, which led the Patriot League and ranked 31st nationally with a 3.25 earned run average last season, returns a pair of weekend starters in senior Chris Rowley and sophomore Alex Robinett. The Black Knights also ranked 21st nationally in hits allowed per nine innings (8.03), 28th in walks allowed per nine innings (2.81) and 18th in WHIP (1.20). Rowley was a huge part of that success a season ago, ranking among the national leaders in wins (11), earned run average (2.40), strikeouts (80), hits allowed per nine innings (5.92), WHIP (0.88) and complete games (6). The junior from Duluth, Ga., collected three All-America certificates following his standout junior campaign, and received three preseason All-America awards heading into this season. The talented right-hander established several single-season Academy records last year, including wins (11), innings pitched (97.1), consecutive scoreless innings (29) and shutouts (5). He was selected as the Patriot League Pitcher of the Year and earned a spot on the all-conference first team after recording a perfect 5-0 record against league foes during the regular season. “Chris has really developed throughout his time here at the Academy,” said Sottolano. “I think coach (Anthony) DeCicco has done a great job with him in terms of his mechanics. He has helped transform an outstanding athlete into a truly outstanding pitcher. “Chris is very determined, hard-nosed and competitive. He’s a very good athlete, who takes pride in the little things. He has the ability, every time he steps on the mound, to keep us in the ballgame. He puts us in position to win, and that’s his job. We ask our starters to keep us within reach and I think Chris has the opportunity to do that, no matter who we’re playing.”

2013 SEASON OUTLOOK

ANDREW FLAHERTY Rowley will be joined near the top of the weekend rotation by Robinett, who is coming off a strong freshman showing in 2012. The second-year righty showed signs of brilliance last year en route to a 3-1 record and 2.73 ERA in 12 appearances (nine starts). He finished with 42 strikeouts and just 14 walks in 52.2 innings of work. “Alex is a real tough competitor with a strong arm,” said Sottolano. “He is developing a third pitch, which I think will aid him. He’s getting better at fielding his position. Alex’s inner toughness is probably one of his biggest strengths, and his ability to stay composed is what will elevate him to the next level. He is a tough, athletic kid, who competes every time he steps onto the mound.” Another key contributor to Army’s pitching staff this season will be junior Gunnar Carroll, who has the desired versatility to perform as either a starter or reliever. The third-year righty, who has mostly appeared out of the bullpen over his first two seasons in an Army uniform, posted a 2-1 record with a 2.48 ERA and eight saves in 2012. Carroll appeared in a team-best 22 games, with two starts. He struck out 40, walked only 12 and allowed just 48 hits in 54.1 innings pitched. This season, following the loss of Logan Lee to graduation, Carroll could be inserted into the starting rotation. His ability to close games could also be called upon, however, depending upon the development of some of Army’s younger hurlers. “Gunnar has the ability to be one of our starters, or he could go into the game to close, depending on what we come up with in the back end of the bullpen,” said Sottolano. “He has shown the ability to do both, and I think that will aid him. His ability to establish that third pitch will dictate how well he can

40

perform as a starter. Obviously, he has done a good job of that during the offseason. “Gunnar is very similar to Chris Rowley in what he throws. They both have good sinking fastballs, good sliders and quality changeups. Like Chris, Gunnar is also very athletic on the mound. He competes each and every time he steps on the hill and has good knowledge of the game. He approaches every pitch as if it’s the most important.” Sophomores Andrew Flaherty and Brian Hapeman have caught the eye of the coaching staff, and both will compete for a spot in Army’s weekend rotation this spring. Flaherty pitched to a 3-1 record and 3.42 ERA last season in nine appearances (three starts). Hapeman sat out last season while rehabilitating injuries. “Andrew has a real good arm, and he showed signs last year,” said Sottolano. “If he progresses the way we think he can, he will compete for a starting job. “Brian is coming off of an injury he sustained in high school,” added Sottolano. “He’s a hard-nosed competitor who is very athletic. I think as the season goes along you will see him get better and better. The Black Knights also return junior Erik Washburn and sophomore Taylor Goucher. Army will rely on several freshmen to round out the pitching staff in 2013. Chief among those prospects are Brock Davidson, Jack Verrill, John Malcolm, Blake Burrus and Jonathan Thiess. “Brock is a lefty who is very knowledgeable about the game,” mentioned Sottolano. “If he can ALEX ROBINETT get his arm strength back to where it was, he will be a factor for us. “Jack is a big right-hander who is athletic and has a bright future once he becomes a little more consistent. “John Malcolm has a very strong arm, and he will compete for a starting position as well,” said Sottolano. “He has a solid fastball and a good breaking ball. I think he will see a lot of innings this season. “Blake has a good arm, but he is still working on becoming a complete pitcher,” added Sottolano. “Jonathan’s biggest thing is getting his strength back,” said Sottolano. “He will see more and more time as his velocity picks up. He knows how to pitch. “Justin has a good arm, and we recruited him to pitch late innings for us. I believe he has that ability. He will PITCHING PROSPECTS certainly be given Name B-T Hgt. Wgt. Cl.

Getting to Know Alex... Why did you choose West Point? I don’t want to be the person who, later in life, looks back and thinks to themselves that college was their “glory” days.

Who are you most looking forward to playing against this season? Holy Cross. Why should fans come out to Doubleday Field this season? It makes it more enjoyable to play baseball when there are a lot of people in the stands. Describe Army head coach Joe Sottolano: Intense.

DIAMOND HISTORY

ARMY’S 1928 BASEBALL SQUAD Football is not the only sport at the United States Militar y Academy owning a long and storied tradition. After celebrating its 100th anniversary in 1990, the intercollegiate baseball program at West Point thrives today, with a history that rivals any in the country. Not only was baseball the first organized sport at the Academy, but the game’s originator, Abner Doubleday, is an 1842 West Point graduate. Sometime during the Civil War, a sophomore cadet requested permission to purchase some baseball equipment in an effort to generate interest in the sport. Four years later, games were being played between the Academy’s four classes. The Black Knights began formally playing the sport in 1890, when a decision was made to adopt baseball as part of the athletic program at West Point. More than a century has passed, but the sport still thrives along the banks of the Hudson, as it has since that first historic game against the Riverton Club of Philadelphia, 123 years ago. Overall, Army teams have posted a 1,567-1,289-41 record (.548), with victory No. 1,000 coming in a 9-7 decision over Long Island University in 1989. The Black Knights played the 2,500th intercollegiate game in program history in 2005 and recorded their 1,500th win versus Marist in the 2010 Hudson Valley Baseball Classic. When glancing through a list of the Academy’s former diamondmen, prominent names abound. Legends such as Omar Bradley, Louis Merrillat, Vernon Prichard, Robert Neyland and Elmer Oliphant all lettered in baseball while doubling as All-America members of Army’s football team. Earl “Red” Blaik, the winningest football coach in Army history, met with success on the baseball diamond as a cadet, while other notable athletes to leave their cleatmarks on Doubleday Field include Douglas MacArthur, Fred Franks, Ray Odierno, Shane Kimbrough, William Wood, Russell P. “Red” Reeder and John Roosma. An interesting sidelight is the fact that Chris-

90

ty Mathewson, one of the greatest pitchers in the history of Major League Baseball, served a brief three-week stint as an assistant baseball coach at the Academy in 1908. That marked the beginning of a long association between West Point and the big leagues with the Black Knights playing the first of 68 exhibition games against professional teams in 1914, hosting the New York Giants. No fewer than 16 men have worn the title of Army baseball head coach since 1895, when a cadet, Abraham Lott, served as both coach and captain. The first five Army teams were self-coached, as were the teams from 1897 to 1900. In all, six coaches have won more than 100 games during their tenure, including current field boss Joe Sottolano, who already stands as Army’s all-time leader in career coaching victories after just 13 years in charge. Johnson Stadium at Doubleday Field, “The Home of Army Baseball,” is yet another source of historical nostalgia. Having undergone a major renovation project that added locker room accommodations and chairback seating for fans last decade, the pristine facility received a new natural grass playing surface in 2006. The multi-million dollar project included the addition of new lighted hitting tunnels, sparkling bullpen areas and a host of dugout improvements. Prior to the 2012 season, the first-ever press box was assembled at Johnson Stadium. A new scoreboard and a padded wall were also installed during the offseason. Doubleday Field had its birth in 1909 when games were first contested on its present site. Thirty years later, upon the centennial celebration of baseball, the playing field was named in honor of Maj. Gen. Abner Doubleday, popularly known as the “Father of Army Baseball.” The stadium itself was dedicated in 1997 in honor of the family of Rupert H. Johnson (USMA ’21), whose generosity helped enable the Doubleday Society to give the then-87-yearold facility a grand new look. Army and Navy entered the Eastern Intercol-

legiate Baseball League in 1948, joining the eight Ivy League schools as league members. Four Cadet teams won or shared the league title, three under the guidance of Eric Tipton. Army tied Princeton for first place in 1950, while garnering the title outright in 1960, 1965, and 1966. The Army diamond squad began a new era in 1993, gaining membership in the Patriot League. That association ended a 44-year relationship with the EIBL. After capturing a Patriot League divisional title in 1994, the Black Knights won their first Patriot League championship in 1997. En route to their first outright league crown of any kind since 1966, the Cadets equalled or surpassed 35 team and individual records and placed a total of 10 players on the Patriot League’s two all-star squads at season’s end. Army made further history in 2000, roaring through the Patriot League Championship Series as the No. 3 seed on its way to garnering the first NCAA Regional berth in school history. The “Cardiac Cadets” registered 18 comefrom-behind victories during the spring, with an amazing 12 of those wins coming during Army’s last at-bat. Despite losing twice in their initial NCAA showing, the Black Knights put forth a strong effort, falling by the scores of 4-3 and 3-1 to host and top seed Rutgers, and eventual regional champ Penn State, respectively. Army returned to the NCAA Regionals in 2004 after authoring what, at the time, rated as the most successful season in school history. The Black Knights, who fashioned a thenschool-record 37 wins (37-15), equaled or tied 84 team and individual, school and Patriot League standards on their way to capturing their second conference title in five years. Army put forth another strong showing at the NCAAs, losing to host and eventual regional champ LSU (9-0) and College of Charleston (2-1). The Black Knights received votes in the final National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) poll for their first end-of-season national recognition. For the first time in Patriot League history, a school swept all four of the conference’s major postseason awards as Sottolano, Schuyler Williamson, Nick Hill and Milan Dinga earned Patriot League Coach of the Year, Player of the Year, Pitcher of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors, respectively. Additionally, Nate Stone became only the third Army player, and the first in four decades, to be selected to one of the All-America teams as voted by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA). Previous honorees include Ed Haydash (1963) and Barry DeBolt (1966). Army also featured a pair of Freshman AllAmerica selections in 2004 with Dinga and Hill collecting honors. Hill became the first Army freshman to earn All-America laurels when he was named to the Third Team All-America

2013 ARMY BASEBALL


DIAMOND HISTORY NOT ONLY WAS BASEBALL THE FIRST ORGANIZED SPORT AT THE ACADEMY, BUT THE GAME’S ORIGINATOR, ABNER DOUBLEDAY, IS AN 1842 WEST POINT GRADUATE. SOMETIME DURING THE CIVIL WAR, A SOPHOMORE CADET REQUESTED PERMISSION TO PURCHASE SOME BASEBALL EQUIPMENT IN AN EFFORT TO GENERATE INTEREST IN THE SPORT. FOUR YEARS LATER, GAMES WERE BEING PLAYED BETWEEN THE ACADEMY’S FOUR CLASSES. squad by Collegiate Baseball. As memorable as 2004 was in the minds of Army followers, 2005 proved even better. In addition to making their second straight postseason trip as Patriot League champions, the Black Knights notched their first NCAA Regional win by defeating South Alabama (85). The victory came less than 24 hours after Army nearly shocked top-seeded Florida State, before falling to the host Seminoles 3-2. Named Patriot League Coach of the Year for the second straight season, Sottolano guided the Black Knights to their fourth Patriot League championship and the school’s third NCAA Regional appearance. For the second straight year, Army players swept the conference’s top three postseason awards as Kyle Scogin was named conference player of the year, Hill repeated as the league’s pitcher of the year and Cole White copped the circuit’s rookie of the year honors. Finishing off the most successful back-toback seasons in school history, Army made its third postseason appearance in six years. For the second straight spring, the Black Knights established a then-school record for victories (39), one of 85 team and individual, school and league records they established or tied throughout the season. For the second consecutive year, Army garnered votes in the final NCBWA national poll and boasted a pair of All-America selections. While Hill was named to the ABCA second team All-America squad, Scogin was selected to the third unit. Army also registered 17 Patriot League victories in 2005, a conference record the Black Knights first established in 1994 and equaled in 2004. Continuing a level of unparalleled success in the program’s history, Army registered at least 30 wins for the third consecutive season in 2006. It marked the first time that the Black Knights reeled off at least 30 wins in three straight years. At season’s end, Dinga was named to the NCBWA’s Third Team All-America squad as a relief pitcher. Hill became the latest Army player to represent his country on the baseball diamond in 2006, earning a roster spot on the USA National Baseball Team. He was the first Black Knight to play for Team USA since Steve Reich did so in

1993 and became only the second Army player to don the “Red, White and Blue.” After being selected in the seventh round of the 2007 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft by the Seattle Mariners, Hill has steadily risen through the minor league ranks. He became the first Army player invited to Major League spring training camp in 2010 after reaching the Triple-A level with the Mariners in 2009. Hill and Dinga had become the first two Army players selected in the top 10 rounds of the major league draft in 2007. Dinga was chosen in the 10th round of the selection process by the Los Angeles Angels, three rounds after Hill was selected by Seattle. Army extended its school-record streak of 25-victory seasons to seven in 2010. The Black Knights won their third straight Patriot League regular-season title and Matt Fouch was named the conference’s Pitcher of the Year. Fouch went on to be drafted by the Atlanta Braves in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft. The Black Knights maintained their recent domination of Navy last spring, sweeping the Midshipmen in Annapolis to claim their ninth consecutive series “star” and running its nineyear record against their arch rivals to 31-9, the Black Knights’ most lopsided stretch in the long matchup’s history. Army finished at 36-21 overall in 2009 and posted two wins at the Austin Regional, reaching the final of a regional for the first time in school history. Ben Koenigsfeld, who became the first player in Patriot League history to earn first team all-league laurles at two different positions in the same season, was named conference pitcher of the year, while Zach Price was selected league rookie of the year. Joey Henshaw and Clint Moore became the latest Black Knights selected to the ABCA All-America team, while Price was named a Freshman AllAmerican. Army also received votes in the final NCBWA national poll for the third time in six years (2004, 2005, 2009). During the 2010 campaign, Army recorded the 1,500th win in program history and posted a 16-4 Patriot League mark en route to winning its third straight conference regular-season crown. Army returned to glory in 2012 as the Black Knights won a school-record 41 games,

ABNER DOUBLEDAY

captured the Patriot League regular-season and tournament titles and advanced to the Charlottesville Regional. Army shattered its own Patriot League record by posting an 18-2 conference mark. The Black Knights swept the Patriot League’s major awards with Kevin McKague (player), Chris Rowley (pitcher), Harold Earls (rookie), Price (scholar-athlete) and Sottolano (coach) being recognized. Rowley went on to cop three All-America certificates after posting an Army single-season record 11 victories. McKague, who led the conference with a .379 batting average, was also named an All-American. Earls, meanwhile, collected freshman All-America laurels. J.T. Watkins and McKague were both picked in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft. Army also received votes in the final NCBWA national poll for the fourth time in nine years (2004, 2005, 2009, 2012). Assuming the reins as Army’s 16th field boss in 2000, Sottolano has built a championship juggernaut to compete on the national level. He has directed the Black Knights to five 30win seasons and the only five NCAA Regional appearances in school history. Since entering the conference in 1993, Army has featured 66 first team All-Patriot League selections, garnering nine conference pitcher of the year, five player of the year and five rookie of the year citings. Army players have been named Patriot League Pitcher of the Year seven times in the last 12 years. Additionally, 14 different Black Knights have copped a total of 44 All-America honors (preseason, postseason, freshman, academic) the past nine years and 10 Army players have been selected in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft during that same span. Throughout Army’s long history, Black Knight pitchers boast four no-hitters to their credit. Neyland threw Army’s first no-hitter when he beat Colgate 8-0 in 1914. Four decades later, Rod Vitty no-hit Swarthmore 3-0 in 1955 before Jon Rindfleisch fired a no-hitter at the Little Quakers in 1957. Logan Lee became the fourth Army hurler to pitch a no-hitter in 2012 when he beat Bucknell, 8-0.

GREAT MOMENTS IN ARMY HISTORY 1890 The first truly organized sport at the U.S. Military Academy was baseball, which begins in 1890, playing a three-game schedule against the Riverton Club of Philadelphia, the Sylvans Club of New York, and the Atlantics from Governors Island. The first game against Riverton ends in an 8-8 tie, but Army wins the other two contests.

1908 Hall-of-Famer Christy Mathewson, one of the greatest pitchers in Major League Baseball history, serves a brief, three-week stint on the Cadets’ coaching staff. So begins a long association between West Point and the big leagues.

1909 Army’s Baseball Field is first laid out at its present location. A new skinned diamond is constructed early in the season on the grass plot south of “Cadet Camp.” It proves to be a great improvement in every way over the old diamond on the infantry plain. Prior to the installation of a temporary fence in the 1970s, established to satisfy Eastern League regulations, the dimensions of the field measured 325 feet down the left field line, 434 feet to straightaway center field and a monstrous 535 feet down the right field line. For several years, the field is known as “the main baseball diamond” or “the baseball field near the Cadet Camp.”

1939 Marking the nation’s centennial celebration of baseball, Army’s home field is dedicated to the memory of Maj. Gen. Abner Doubleday on May 17. The 1842 West Point graduate is credited with devising the game of baseball while on leave from the Academy in 1939.

1944 The New York Giants, New York Yankees, Brooklyn Dodgers and Montreal Expos all travel to the United States Military Academy for exhibition games against Army’s baseball team. In all, five games are contested, with Army posting an 8-6 victory against a team comprised of Montreal Royals (Triple-A) and Brooklyn Dodgers rookies.

1945 Army registers its first and only two victories over a Major League team by defeating the Brooklyn Dodgers twice in three matchups at Doubleday Field. It also marks the final year that the Dodgers hold their spring training camp at nearby Bear Mountain. The Cadets prove their wins over “Dem Bums” are no fluke, posting a 15-0 collegiate record, the second undefeated season in school history and the first since 1890.

1950

1914 As a favor to Army head coach Sammy Strang, legendary manager John McGraw sends a group of his New York Giants rookies to West Point for an exhibition game against Army’s varsity squad on May 9. The Giants prevail 7-2 in a contest that marks the first of 85 exhibition games scheduled between Army and Major League teams from 1914 to 1986. Sixty-eight of those matchups were actually played, although a small number were called after a few innings due to rain. During several years, more than one team traveled to West Point.

1914 Bob Neyland, Army’s career leader in pitching victories, fires the first no-hitter in Army history, blanking Colgate 8-0. The Army sophomore posts a remarkable 35-5 record during his days in the Black, Gold and Gray (1913-16). Neyland would go on to football coaching greatness at the University of Tennessee and would eventually be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and Army Sports Hall of Fame.

92

1934 Playing his final game at West Point on June 11, New York Yankees legend Babe Ruth launches a ball to the tennis court fences in right field, a distance of well over 500 feet. It remains arguably the longest ball ever hit at Doubleday Field.

Army claims a share of the school’s first conference title, tying Princeton for the Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League crown under the direction head coach Paul Amen.

1955 Senior right-hander Rod Vitty fires Army’s first no-hitter in four decades, shutting out Swarthmore 3-0.

1958 Former Major-Leaguer Eric Tipton assumes the reins of Army’s baseball program. Tipton guides the Black Knights to three Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League titles (1960, 1965, 1966) over the next 20 years, finishing with a 234201-5 (.538) coaching record. Although his career victor y standard has since been surpassed at

the Academy, Tipton’s teams notched doubledigit victory totals 16 times.

1959 Fred Franks serves as captain of the Army baseball team and is later commissioned in the Armor branch of the U.S. Army. Twice wounded during his tour of duty in Vietnam, he later commanded the First Armored Division in Germany and was Commanding General of the VII Corps during Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. Franks later retired from the U.S. Army with the rank of General.

1960 The Cadets capture their first outright conference championship, winning the Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League title under head coach Eric Tipton. Army finishes 18-5-1 overall, tying the Academy’s single-season record for victories at the time.

1965 Army wins the first of two straight Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League titles and the second of three conference crowns it would claim during the decade of the 1960s. Hardthrowing junior Barry DeBolt registers a 7-2 record with a sparkling 1.50 earned run average, leading the Black Knights to a 15-6 overall record and 7-2 league mark. DeBolt and Kenny Smith garner all-EIBL honors.

1966 Led by standout pitcher Barry DeBolt, Army claims its second consecutive Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League title, posting an overall record of 16-4. DeBolt authors one of the most dominant pitching seasons in Army history, finishing 9-1 with a league-leading 1.33 earned run average. He becomes the first C a d e t to e a r n all-league laurels during three straight seasons.

2013 ARMY BASEBALL


GREAT MOMENTS IN ARMY HISTORY 1976 The New York Yankees visit West Point for the final time, defeating Army 2-0. Covering a 50-year span stretching from 1927 through 1976, 21 exhibition games were played between the Cadets and Yankees. The Bronx Bombers prevailed in each of those contests.

1984 Under the direction of manager Davey Johnson, the New York Mets make their final visit to Doubleday Field for an exhibition game against the Army baseball team. The Mets post a 6-0 win over the Cadets with a roster that includes veterans Rusty Staub, Jesse Orosco and Mookie Wilson, as well as young stars Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry. The Mets, who made their first West Point appearance in 1963 with legendary manager Casey Stengel at the helm, visited Doubleday Field on eight occasions during the 22-year span, winning all eight affairs.

1986 The Houston Astros visit West Point on May 6 for what would mark the final exhibition game between Army and a Major League team at Doubleday Field. Houston wins by the score of 9-0 as the Astros score all of their runs in the third and fourth innings. Glenn Davis delivers a three-run home run and Phil Garner adds a solo shot for Houston to spark a four-run fourth. Tom Cascino and Erik Everton bang out two hits each for Army.

1989 The Black Knights record the 1,000th victory in the history of Army’s intercollegiate baseball program, defeating Long Island University by a 9-7 count on April 18.

1992 Junior left-hander Steve Reich leads Army to a season-opening 5-2 win over Air Force, striking out 17 Falcons in the seven-inning contest played at the U.S. Olympic Training site in Millington, Tenn. Reich would graduate a year later, having authored unparalleled career success against his

fellow service academies. Six appearances against Air Force and Navy resulted in six complete-game victories and a remarkable 1.71 earned run average. Reich was simply dominant against arch-rival Navy, winning all four of his starts, while posting a microscopic 0.96 ERA. Reich became the first Army player to earn a spot on Team USA following graduation and spent his first summer as a second lieutenant toiling internationally.

1993 Army’s baseball team begins a new era, ending a 44-year relationship with the Eastern Intercollegiate Baseball League by gaining membership in the Patriot League.

1994 The Black Knights defeat Fordham 9-2 in a one-game playoff to determine the Patriot League’s North Division title. It marks Army’s first conference crown of any kind since 1966.

1995 Army heads to Tampa, Fla., for its spring trip as invited guests of the New York Yankees, beginning a practice that c o n t i n u e s to day. The Black Knights schedule daily workouts at the Yankees’ sprawling four-field minor league complex, just across the road from George M. Steinbrenner Field.

1996 Doubleday Field undergoes a $4.2 million dollar renovation that includes construction of full locker rooms, fully equipped training rooms, clubhouse facilities and the addition of 880 fixed chair-back seats. Johnson Stadium at Doubleday Field is dedicated on Sept. 13 in honor of the family of Rupert H. Johnson (USMA ‘21), whose generosity helped enable the Doubleday Society to give the facility a grand new look.

1997 Army captures its first Patriot League title and first outright conference flag of any kind in more than 30 years. The Black Knights are denied their first trip to the NCAA Regionals when they fall to Harvard 2-1 in a best-of-three NCAA Play-In Series.

2000 Under the direction of interim head coach Joe Sottolano, third-seeded Army storms through the Patriot League Tournament,

sweeping regular-season champion Navy on the Mids’ home field en route to the conference championship. The “Cardiac Cadets” register 18 come-from-behind wins throughout the season, piling up 12 victories in their final atbat. Despite losing twice in their initial NCAA Regional appearance, the Black Knights put forth a respectable effort, losing to host and No. 1 seed Rutgers 4-3 and eventual regional champion Penn State 3-1. The “interim” label is removed from Sottolano’s coaching title at season’s end.

2004 One of the Army baseball family’s most decorated members drops by his old dugout at Doubleday Field on April 13. Maj. Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of the infantry division that was responsible for capturing Saddam Hussein in Iraq five months earlier and a former Black Knight pitcher, pays a visit to the Army squad. A three-time letterwinner during his days in the Black, Gold and Gray, Maj. Gen. Odierno addresses the Army team for nearly 30 minutes in the squad’s clubhouse in Johnson Stadium.

2004 Patriot League champion-Army enjoys the most successful season in school history, finishing with a school-record 37 wins (37-15).

GREAT MOMENTS IN ARMY HISTORY 2005 Less than 24 hours after suffering a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to No. 1 seed and eventual regional champion Florida State, Army defeats South Alabama 8-5 at the Tallahassee Regional, heralding the first NCAA Regional win in school history. Army surpasses the school record victory total it set the previous year, closing one of the most successful seasons in West Point history at 39-14. Army establishes or ties 85 team and individual, school and Patriot League records, many of which had been previously set just one year earlier. Sophomore left-hander Nick Hill becomes the first player in Army history to garner All-America honors in consecutive seasons, finishing 10-2 with a 1.21 earned run average. The latter figure ranks second nationally.

2006 Army posts 30 victories for the third straight season, marking a new standard for the Academy’s baseball team. Nick Hill becomes the first Black Knight since Steve Reich in 1993 to play for Team USA during the summer. Additionally, Doubleday Field receives a major upgrade as a completely new natural grass playing surface is installed, replacing the original diamond that had been in place for nearly a century.

2007 Seniors Nick Hill and Milan Dinga are selected in the seventh and 10th round, respectively, in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft.

After defeating Holy Cross in the conference semifinals, Army sweeps Lafayette in the Patriot League Championship Series to earn the fourth NCAA Regional berth in school history.

Forecast for a third-place finish in the Patriot League’s preseason poll, Army storms to the top of the conference standings. The Black Knights capture their fourth regular season Patriot League championship with a roster featuring 15 freshmen. Drew Clothier, Cole White and Chris Simmons are selected in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft.

2009 Army garners a share of its fourth regular season Patriot League championship in six years, completing a meteoric rise through the conference standings by winning three of four games against Lafayette on the final weekend of regular season conference play. The Black Knights win just one of their first six Patriot tilts

last seven years. Army also reaches the 25-win plateau for the seventh straight season, extending the Black Knights’ record. Four Army players are named to the All-Patriot League first team, led by Pitcher of the Year Matt Fouch and Kevin McKague, who are unanimous selections. Army also continues its dominance of Navy, capturing the seventh straight “Star” by taking three out of four games from the Midshipmen.

Posting wins over second-seeded Texas State and No. 3 seed Boston College, Army reaches the Austin Regional Final, marking a first in school history. The Black Knights carry a 10-6 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning against No. 1 national seed Texas only to see the powerful Longhorns rally for a 14-10 victory, ending Army’s Cinderella run in the first Austin Regional “championship” game. The Black Knights finish 36-21 overall and set or tie 67 team and individual, school and Patriot League records along the way.

Army falls just short of capturing another conference title, losing the Patriot League Championship Series in three games. Clint Moore graduates at Army’s all-time leader in home runs, doubles, RBI, runs scored, total bases, slugging percentage and multiple-RBI games. He hit for the home run cycle in Army’s doubleheader at Lafayette in late April, helping him earn a spot in Sports Illustrated’s “Faces in the Crowd” section. Head coach Joe Sottolano, already the winningest head coach in Army baseball history, wins his 300th career game when the Black Knights defeat Davidson, 10-6, early in the season. Army captures its eighth straight “star” from Navy after splitting the regular-season series with the Midshipmen at West Point.

ARMY IN THE PROS Army’s baseball program has proven to be one of the most regular producers of minor league talent in all of the Northeast the past several years. In fact, 11 former Black Knights have logged time with a minor league team affiliated with the major leagues since 2005. Ten of those individuals have been selected in Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft, including a school-record total of three chosen in 2008. Below is a list of Army players selected in the draft since 2005. In addition to those listed, Josh Holden signed with the Cincinnati Reds organization as a free agent in 2006.
