Getting The Ball

Will Startup

5th Round Pick

Georgia recruits pitchers who are talented, confident and have that competitive nature to contribute immediately. Bulldog pitchers should welcome the competition and atmosphere they will experience around the SEC. Brooks Brown In 2009, a 1st Round Pick total of more than 1.8 million fans attended SEC baseball games. The average attendance at a 2009 SEC baseball game around the league was 4,689.

The Importance Of A Strong Bullpen

Georgia has had double-digit saves in seven of the past eight seasons including a school record 19 in 2008. Coach Perno and pitching coach Brady Wiederhold firmly believe in developing a strong bullpen to protect their starting pitchers and to shorten games. There has been only ONE Georgia pitcher since 2002 that has logged more than 100 innings in a season.

2010 Season Preview shortstop Kyle Farmer, sophomore Levi Hyams slides over to second base this year and sophomore Chase Davidson becomes the top option at first base. Redshirt freshman Kevin Ruiz will provide depth at the corner infield spots and see time as the designated hitter. Also, freshman Robert Shipman and junior Robbie O’Bryan will get action at first base and freshmen Todd Hankins and Moseley should see time at second base. At catcher, Georgia likely will platoon freshman Brett DeLoach and sophomores Christian Glisson and Carson Schilling to begin the year. All three are capable receivers with DeLoach providing the best offensive potential and Glisson giving the Bulldogs another left-handed hitter in the lineup. Georgia should have one of the best outfields in the Southeastern Conference, and it consists of sophomores Jonathan Taylor (LF), Zach Cone (CF) and Peter Verdin (RF). “Our outfield has a chance to be the best we’ve ever had because of their athleticism and ability to cover ground,” said Perno. Freshman Zach Taylor, sophomore Lance Martin and Ruiz round out this talented group who will see action in 2010.

Zach Cone made his share of highlight catches in 2009 including this one against Clemson to preserve a 6-5 win.

2010 SCHEDULE Georgia will play 10 of its first 18 games on the road before opening the SEC season at home against Auburn. Georgia begins the season with four games in Waco, Texas against host Baylor and Duke. The Bulldogs have their annual home-and-home series with Clemson and Georgia Tech plus they will return to Tallahassee for a three-game set with Florida State in early March. One unique twist of the 30-game SEC schedule this season is the Bulldogs will play their first five series against Western Division teams and then the second half will be all Eastern Division foes. After the Auburn series, Georgia travels to Mississippi State and LSU, then plays host to Ole Miss and finishes the Western Division swing at Arkansas. The Eastern Division slate begins with South Carolina coming to Foley Field followed by a trip Vanderbilt then back home against Tennessee, then off to Florida and concluding the regular season in Athens versus Kentucky. It’s a challenging schedule and one we’re more accustomed to playing compared to a much easier one we had in 2009,” said Perno. “This schedule will prepare us for league and postseason play. We will play in some great environments like opening the year at Baylor and going back to Florida State. Both those teams will come to Athens in 2011 so our players and fans should look forward to those series.” OVERALL Georgia has made six trips to the College World Series in nine NCAA Regional appearances. In 2010, they aim to make history as the first Bulldog squad to advance to an NCAA Regional in three consecutive seasons. Under Perno, Georgia has made five NCAA Regionals and reached Omaha in 2004, 2006 and 2008. Ask the Bulldogs, and they will tell you the number one goal is always the same. Get to Hoover for the SEC Tournament and that gets you in an NCAA Regional. The Bulldogs have proven they know how to peak in the postseason and look to be back home in Omaha in 2010. A Georgia record 93,360 fans cheered on the Bulldogs at Foley Field in 2009.

Third baseman Colby May will lead the offense in 2010. He earned Freshman All-America honors in 2009 after batting .339-11-42.

Georgia Coaching Staff Big Bulldog Rallies in the Perno Era

As Yogi Berra once said, “it ain’t

over until it’s over.” Georgia has had

more than 20 memorable comeback

wins under head coach David Perno including three from a seven-run deficit and another when the Bulldogs trailed 9-0.

Here’s a look at the top four ac-

cording to the Bulldog coaches and players.

June 6, 2004 Georgia Storms Past #22 Clemson 7-6 To Win NCAA Regional

ATHENS: Clemson forced another game to decide the regional title when it rallied back from a 9-2 deficit in the fifth inning to defeat Georgia 10-9. After a 45-minute break between games, Clemson jumped ahead 4-0 by the second inning and carried a 6-4 lead to the ninth as the home team. In the bottom of the eighth, Coach Perno was ejected for arguing balls and strikes. The crowd and the Bulldogs seemed to be energized by Perno’s actions. Bobby Felmy led off the ninth by hitting the first pitch over the fence for a solo home run. Then, Jason Jacobs followed with another blast to tie the game at 6-6. Clint Sammons smashed a solo shot in the 10th to give the Bulldogs a 7-6 lead. Will Startup blanked the Tigers over the last 3.2 innings including two strikeouts with runners on in the bottom of the 10th to push the Bulldogs in to a Super Regional! The next day, Tiger coach Jack Leggett called Perno and said looking back it was one of the greatest days of competition he had been a part of in his career. Also, he wished the Bulldogs continued success in the post season.

May 26, 2006 Georgia Wins Slugest Over South Carolina 16-10

BIRMINGHAM: In one of the all-time great comebacks in school history, ninth-ranked Georgia overcame an early 9-0 deficit to power past USC 16-10 in an SEC Tournament elimination game. The Bulldogs trailed 9-0 in the second and then freshman Trevor Holder, senior Rip Warren and junior Joshua Fields combined to cool off the USC bats. For the second day in a row, Georgia pounded out 16 runs on 22 hits in a game that lasted exactly 3:42. Georgia cut it to 9-5 in the third and 9-8 by the fourth before taking the lead for good in the fifth when Joey Side smashed a two-run home run to dead center off Gamecock closer Wynn Pelzer. Along with Side, Jonathan Wyatt, Gordon Beckham and Kyle Keen drove in two runs apiece while senior Jason Jacobs went 3-for-5 with four RBI.

May 11, 2003 Georgia Outlasts #14 Miss. State 8-7

ATHENS: Georgia trailed 7-0 going to the sixth and did not have a hit. They chipped away with one run in the sixth and two in the seventh, eighth and ninth to force extra innings. The four runs over the final two frames all came with two outs, highlighted by a tworun double by Justin McClain, an RBI-double by Josh Smith and a run-scoring single by David Coffey to tie it at 7-7. Then in the 14th, MSU pushed one run across only to see the Bulldogs answer with a double by Jon Armitage and eventually a sacrifice fly by McClain. In the 15th, Justin Holmes led off with a double and after a walk to Smith, Coffey drilled a base hit to left field for the game-winner! The game took 4:41 and was the second longest in school history!

April 28, 2002 Georgia Avoids Gator Sweep

GAINESVILLE, FLA: Along with getting no-hit by Keith Ramsey until one out in the seventh, Georgia was staring at a series sweep by the 12th-ranked Gators. Adam Swann was the lone Bulldog to reach base through the first eight frames, drawing a walk in the fourth and breaking up the nohitter with a one-out single in the seventh. Trailing 4-0 in the ninth, the Bulldogs rallied for six runs on five hits and two Florida errors. Jon Armitage started the rally with a leadoff single. Matt Cavender spoiled the shutout with a two-run single. Lee Mitchell tied the game with another two-run single. Clint Sammons provided the go-ahead runscoring single. Then, Jeffrey Carswell and the Bulldogs retired the Gators in the ninth for a 6-4 win!

Brady Wiederhold Assistant Coach Pitching Fourth Season (Kennesaw St. ’94) CWS: 2003, ’04, ’08 SEC Champions: 2003, ’04, ’08

A veteran of the post season, Brady Wiederhold has been a part of staffs that have advanced to the Division I College World Series three times and the Division II College World Series four times. In his third year at Georgia in 2009, he helped guide the Bulldogs to their second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament after finishing as the SEC Champion and CWS Finalist in 2008. As the Bulldog pitching coach, Wiederhold’s 2009 staff finished in the top half of the SEC in ERA, opponent’s batting average and fewest home runs allowed. Wiederhold’s work with the pitchers saw six members selected in the 2009 Major League Baseball annual draft including Trevor Holder in the third round and Dean Weaver in the seventh round. In his second year at Georgia, he helped guide the 2008 Bulldogs to within a victory of the national championship. Georgia reached the CWS Finals and earned a consensus final national ranking of number two.Wiederhold’s work with the 2008 Southeastern Conference champion Bulldog pitching staff saw four members drafted. All-American Joshua Fields went in the first round, 20th overall, and the SEC rotation of Holder, Stephen Dodson and Nathan Moreau were picked by the 11th round. Fields and Dodson improved their status from 2007 while Holder and Moreau were first-time selections. Also, senior Nick Montgomery signed a free agent contract. In 2008, Fields returned for his senior season and captured the National Stopper of the Year Award as the nation’s top closer. He led the NCAA with 18 saves and was named the SEC Pitcher of the Year by the league coaches. Holder and Dodson earned second team All-SEC honors.The duo along with Moreau combined to make every SEC start in helping Georgia set a school record with a 20-9-1 SEC mark. Also, the Bulldog pitching staff set school records with 634 innings pitched, 19 saves and 71 starts. Georgia had a 12-game SEC stretch when the bullpen pitched 40 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run. In 2007, Widerhold inherited the second youngest pitching staff in the SEC as freshmen combined for 86 appearances. In 2008, the sophomore class led by Alex McRee and Dean Weaver showed tremendous improvement. After combining to go 3-7 as freshmen, the duo posted a combined 13-2 mark. Before coming to Georgia, Wiederhold spent four seasons at LSU. In 2002, Wiederhold served as an administrative assistant on Smoke Laval’s Tiger staff before being promoted to pitching coach in 2003. The Tigers advanced to the College World Series in 2003 and 2004. In his first season as the pitching coach with the Tigers, LSU won the SEC and led the league with 515 strikeouts. The pitching staff featured four major league draft selections that year (Billy Sadler, Brian Wilson, Jake Tompkins and Bo Pettit) plus All-SEC Nate Bumstead and a pair of freshman All-Americans in Jason Determann and Justin Meier. One of the highlights of the 2004 CWS squad was when they tossed three consecutive complete games for the first time in modern-day school history. Lane Mestepey (SEC Tournament), Meier (NCAA Regional opener) and Bumstead (NCAA Regional semifinal) each went the distance. Bumstead won 10 games that year and was drafted by the Detroit Tigers. In 2004 and 2005, Wiederhold helped develop Clay Dirks who earned freshman All-America and All-SEC honors in his career along with All-American and All-SEC standout Greg Smith. Both hurlers were 10-game winners in 2005 and Smith was a sixth round pick of the Arizona Diamondbacks. In 2006, the LSU pitching staff registered 35 wins despite featuring just two

draft picks, two-way player Will Harris going in the ninth round to Colorado and Edgar Ramirez selected in the 36th round by the New York Mets. Prior to his tenure at LSU, Wiederhold worked two seasons as the pitching coach at Louisiana-Monroe. The Indians advanced to the 2000 NCAA Baton Rouge Regional. The ULM staff ranked among the top 15 nationally in team earned run average (ERA). Also, the staff set the school’s single season strikeout mark en route to a school-record 41 wins. Before heading to ULM, Wiederhold spent four seasons as the pitching coach at his alma mater, the Kennesaw State Owls. During this time, the Owls appeared in four Division II College World Series. They won the national title in 1996 and finished second in 1998 and 1999. The KSU pitching staff led the nation in ERA in 1997 and 1998. Wiederhold began his coaching career as an assistant at Oglethorpe University in 1994. The Stormy Petrels went 46-28 that year and won the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Eastern Division title. Wiederhold was a four-year letterman at KSU from 1990-93. A former catcher, he was named the team’s top defensive player as a senior. He earned a bachelor’s degree in sports management from KSU in 1994.

Shortly after leaving a study session on campus at the Miller Learning Center on Oct. 28, Chance Veazey’s life changed forever. He was involved in a scooter accident and suffered a spinal cord injury. Currently, he has paralysis from the waist down. After a week at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens, he moved to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta for an intense six-week rehabilitation program. At Shepherd, Veazey earned the “Superman” towel, which for 10 years has been passed down among the patients who are working the hardest and graduate from the program. His rehabilitation continues, and his attitude and effort to return to his life inspires everyone who meets him. Along with his passion for baseball, Chance is an avid outdoorsman. During the Thanksgiving holiday, he got to hunt on land owned by professional baseball players Ryan Klesko and John Smoltz. Chance bagged an 11-point buck, the biggest deer he had ever killed. Support for Chance has come from all around the country including the Bulldog nation and his hometown of Tifton. Thousands of people have followed Chance’s story online at Caringbridge.org.

Personal: Born Aug. 8, 1990 *Son of Todd and Darby Veazey *Chance’s mother Darby was an All-America softball student-athlete at Florida State and was the first woman inducted in to the FSU Athletic Hall of Fame *Chance and current Bulldog catcher Christian Glisson and outfielder Israel Troupe were teammates at Tift County in 2006 when the Blue Devils advanced to the state quarterfinals in Class AAAAA *Major: Pre-Business

By the end of fall practice, Chance had earned the starting job at second base.

He plans to return to UGA some this spring and then fulltime next fall. Chance will continue his education, his training regimen with athletic trainer Mike Dillon and work with the baseball program.

In the last fall scrimmage, Chance had three hits including a home run in his final at-bat. 6 SEC Titles: 1933, 1953, 1954, 2001, 2004, 2008

2009 Season Review Bulldogs Use Fast Start To Rise to #1 Ranking During Season, End Up 38-24 and #25 in ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll It was a record-setting season for the Georgia baseball team in 2009. The Bulldogs got off to the best start in program history, broke the school home run record, shattered Foley Field attendance records and led the country with a school record 11 players selected in the Major League Baseball Draft. Georgia won its first 14 games in 2009 including a three-game sweep at Arizona. On March 9, unbeaten Georgia was ranked No. 1 in the regular season for the first time in school history and the Bulldogs were ranked No. 1 five different weeks throughout the year. The Bulldogs endured their first setback with a series loss at Alabama to open SEC play, but rebounded with sweeps over Mississippi State and Tennessee the next two weekends to set up a No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown with LSU at Foley Field. The Tigers came back to win game three and claim the series, but Georgia bounced back with a road sweep at Kentucky, then took two from fifth-ranked Arkansas to gain sole possession of first place in the SEC with four series to play. Georgia stumbled down the stretch but still advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the 10th time in school history. In annual non-conference tilts, Georgia swept No. 17 Clemson and split two games against Georgia Tech. The Bulldogs beat the Jackets at Turner Field for the fifth straight year. With 45 wins in 2008 and 38 in 2009, Georgia has won 83 games in the last two seasons, the program’s second highest win total in consecutive years. The Bulldogs have also won 35 SEC games in the last two seasons, which is tied for the most league wins in consecutive years in Georgia baseball history.

GEORGIA IN THE 2009 POSTSEASON

The Bulldogs won their first two games in the SEC Tournament, beating No. 7 Ole Miss and College World Series participant Arkansas before being eliminated by eventual national champion LSU to finish in a tie for third. After Georgia played host to a regional in 2008, the Bulldogs made their first back-to-back appearances in a regional since the 2001-02 seasons as the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tallahassee Regional. After a 24-8 romp over No. 3 seed Ohio State in the opener, Georgia fell to Florida State then had its season end with a loss to the Buckeyes. The Bulldogs, who finished the season with a 38-24 overall record and a 15-15 mark in league play, made their fifth NCAA postseason appearance under David Perno, more than any other coach in program history. HUGE CROWDS FLOCK TO FOLEY FIELD For the second straight year, Georgia set school records for total attendance and average attendance at Foley Field. A total of 93,360 fans were in attendance for 32 home dates for an average of 2,917 fans per game. The 2009 Bulldogs attracted five of the top 10 largest crowds in Foley Field history including the largest crowd of 4,461 for a 4-0 win over No. 25 Mississippi State on March 21. The Bulldogs often entertained the fans with a power display, smashing a record 109 home runs in 2009, breaking the mark of 105 set by the 1987 team. Georgia entered the 2009 season averaging 63 home runs per season under Perno. Junior All-American first baseman Rich Poythress accounted for a team-best 25 home runs, a school record 86 RBI and hit .376. Senior catcher/designated hitter Bryce Massanari and junior catcher/DH Joey Lewis hit 19 home runs apiece.

2009 All-American first baseman Rich Poythress and All-SEC catcher Bryce Massanari combined for 44 home runs and 143 RBI last year.

The SEC THIS IS SEC BASEBALL

The Southeastern Conference, with its storied 76-year history of athletic achievements and academic excellence, has built perhaps the greatest tradition of intercollegiate competition of any league in the country since its inception in 1933. The SEC posted another tremendous season in 2009 as the conference had eight teams earn NCAA postseason bids. LSU and Arkansa advanced to the 2009 College World Series, and the Tigers claimed their sixth national title. An SEC squad has now appeared in the CWS 24 of the last 25 years. LSU and Ole Miss shared the SEC title with a 20-10 conference record and the Tigers claimed the SEC Tournament crown too. “Pack the Parks” Year after year, the SEC continues to be the benchmark in college baseball attendance.The SEC drew 1,885,171 fans in 2009. The SEC and its member schools own virtually all regular season, conference tournament, NCAA Regional and Super Regional attendance records. The SEC has led all conferences in total and average attendance for the past 13 seasons.

Academic All-SEC SEC ACADEMIC HONOR ROLL (1984-2009)

In 1984, the SEC developed the Academic Baseball Honor Roll. The new format was adopted to recognize those athletes who had a 3.0 grade point average (either cumulative or during the past year), and had 24 semester or 26 quarter hours countable toward a degree. Prior to the 1996-97 season, the SEC dropped the requirement of earning a letter for that season. Starting in 2002, the recipients were chosen from the previous calendar year.

SEC Tournament History 2010 SEC Tournament

May 26-30, Regions Park, Hoover, Ala. (10,800) Dimensions: 340 Foul Lines, 385 Power Alleys, 405 to CF

For the 13th straight year, Regions Park in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover, Ala., will serve as the site of the SEC Tournament. In May of 2006, it was announced that the annual event will remain in the city through the year 2011. When the patio, banquet and side grassy areas are used, capacity can grow up to 16,000. Wireless internet access was added in 2004 and concourse and signage renovation were done in 2005. A second-level pressbox expansion, new seating and an exterior facelit were part of a $4.5 million project completed in 2007. The format is an eight-team double elimination tournament that is modeled after the College World Series. The tournament field includes the top two teams from the SEC’s Eastern and Western Divisions plus four at-large bids based on conference winning percentage. The eight teams are seeded 1-8 with the two divisional champions guaranteed the top two seeds. Regions Park serves as home of the Double-A Birmingham Barons (Chicago White Sox) of the Southern League.

Georgia History At the SEC Tournament

Record: 25-36 in 18 appearances; Best Finish: 2nd (1985, 1986, 1989)

Did You Know?

The first two times that Georgia went 0-2 at the SECs (1987 & 1990), they advanced to the College World Series. They did it again in 2008. Georgia catcher Roger Miller was the 1989 Tournament MVP, and he is one of only four players to earn this honor and have his team not win the league title. In 2000, Georgia did not post a shutout until the tournament when it blanked Miss. State 5-0 in an elimination game. For then Georgia coach Ron Polk, it marked the first time he faced his former club, one he coached for 22 seasons before turning the program over to Pat McMahon at the end of the 1997 season. In 2004, Georgia scored one run in three games and went 1-2. The Bulldogs were blanked 6-0 by Vanderbilt’s first round draft pick Jeremy Sowers on a threehitter, then rebounded to beat #3 LSU 1-0 on a combined four-hitter (Sean Ruthven and Will Startup) and then were eliminated by #21 Florida 6-0. In 2006, Georgia won two straight elimination games by a score of 16-10 that lasted exactly 3:42. First, they routed SEC co-champion Kentucky and then came back from a 9-0 deficit to beat South Carolina. Georgia tied for third, which marked its best finish since 1989.

Bulldog Major Leaguers A total of 33 former Bulldogs have reached the Major League level. It began with Claude Derrick for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1909. The latest Bulldog to make it to the majors was Gordon Beckham in 2009. He was one of four Bulldogs to play in the majors last season, joining Mitchell Boggs (St. Louis), Clint Sammons (Atlanta) and Jeff Keppinger (Houston). Beckham was named the 2009 American League Rookie of the Year by the Major League Baseball Players Association and by The Sporting News plus to the Topps Rookie All-Star team. Derrick played on Connie Mack’s World Championship teams in 1910 and 1911 and, while recovering from a broken ankle in Baltimore in 1912, he was the first roommate of a rookie pitcher named George Herman “Babe” Ruth. Nolen Richardson, a Georgia standout in football and basketball in the 1920s, played six years in the majors and returned to coach the Bulldogs in 1951. Johnny Rucker was featured in LIFE as a promising rookie in 1940. While many Bulldogs enjoyed success throughout their career, one who stands out is Spurgeon “Spud” Chandler. Chandler was a part of seven World Series teams for the New York Yankees, including winners of six championships. Actually, he first played in Yankee Stadium as a member of the Bulldog football team. Georgia defeated New York University 7-6 on Nov. 7, 1931. Following his graduation in 1932, the Carnesville, Ga., native spent five years in the minors before returning to Yankee Stadium as a major leaguer. In his 11-year career, his finest season came in 1943. He led the league in Wins, Earned Run Average and Complete Games, going 20-4 with a 1.64 ERA and 20 complete games. He went 2-0 with a 0.50 ERA in the 1943 World Series, winning game one and pitching a shutout in the clinching game five over St. Louis.

MLB TRIVIA: Larry Littleton and former St. Louis Cardinal outfielder Michael Potter hold the MLB record for most career at bats by a non-pitcher without a hit. Littleton made the Indians 1981 team out of spring training. He made his debut in game two that season, pinchhitting in the ninth inning. He grounded out to eventual Hall of Famer Robin Yount. His lone RBI came on a bases-loaded line out off Minnesota’s Jerry Koosman that Mickey Hatcher ran down. Most of his at-bats came as a pinch-hitter, and he started just four games over a 45day span. Still, the Bulldog graduate made it to the top.

Bulldog Minor Leaguers BULLDOG TRIO REACHES MAJORS IN 2009

Three former Bulldogs earned promotions to the Major Leagues this past year. Infielder Gordon Beckham made quite a splash with the Chicago White Sox, earning Rookie of the Year honors by the Players Association and The Sporting News, excelling at a new position -third base. Pitcher Mitchell Boggs returned to the Majors for the second year in a row, seeing extended action with the St. Louis Cardinals including an appearance in the playoffs. Catcher Clint Sammons was called up by the Atlanta Braves for the third time in his career. Former All-America pitcher Joshua Fields, a 2008 first round pick by Seattle, spent the season in Double-A for the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx and then was selected by the Mariners to play in the elite Arizona Fall League (AFL). He was named a “Rising Star,” pitched in the All-Star game and was a part of the AFL Champion Peoria Javelinas. The AFL is made up of mostly Double-A and Triple-A Minor League players, and it’s like a finishing school for prospects close to being ready to make the jump to the Major Leagues. Six Bulldogs off the 2009 team made their professional debut this past summer including second round pick Rich Poythress who played with Fields at Double-A.

THE GOLDEN SPIKES The Golden Spikes award is given annually to the top amateur baseball player in America. Any exceptional collegiate, high school, youth program and independent amateur baseball players are eligible. Six former Bulldogs have been nominated for this prestigious honor including first round picks Gordon Beckham and Joshua Fields in 2008 and second round pick Rich Poythress in 2009. Beckham was a finalist for the award while Fields and Poythress were semifinalists. In 1987, not only was it a banner year for the Bulldogs as a team, but also for some individuals. Pitchers Cris Carpenter and Derek Gordon Beckham Lilliquist were tabbed as nominees for the award. It marked 2008 Finalist only the second time that two teammates were nominated in the same year. In 1990 former Bulldog pitcher Dave Fleming, who led Georgia to its first-ever national championship, was nominated. The winner of the award goes through a selection process in which a 60-person committee ranks the top nine individuals and then selects a winner based upon exceptional athletic ability, sportsmanship, character, and overall contribution to the sport at any level. The winner is automatically enshrined in the United States Baseball Federation’s Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame.

All-Time Lettermen MORTON HODGSON: One of the Best Ever

Morton Hodgson (1906-09) not only was a starter for four years in baseball, he lettered in football, basketball and track. He was Georgia’s first four-letter athlete. A hometown hero, he hit .333 on the 1908 championship squad that was considered one of the greatest teams ever fielded by the University. The pitching staff was so strong it shut out 12 opponents, six in succession. He was named to Grantland Rice’s All-Southern team. His sons were stellar athletes for the Bulldogs and two of his grandsons lettered in football under Coach Vince Dooley. He is the only Georgia player to have a son and two grandsons letter in football at Georgia.

Bulldog Baseball Trivia First Season

1886 was the first real season according to living legend Dan Magill who spoke with early lettermen from that period. Baseball is the oldest varsity sport on campus. C.E. Morris was the team captain, leading Georgia to a 2-0 mark in its inaugural season. The wins came against a town team from Athens and a team from Emory College in Oxford, Ga. The game against Emory was played at Union Point. The ace pitcher of the team was Charles Ed Morris who introduced the curve ball to the South. His catcher was his brother John, who for years headed Georgia’s German department and was faculty chairman of athletics. Club teams were in existence at Georgia as early as 1867 according to Georgia historian E. Merton Coulter. Entering the 2010 season, Georgia’s record is 2,016-1,492-23.

First Coach

“Hustlin” Hughie Jennings served as coach beginning in 1895 until 1899. Jennings, a former standout for the Baltimore Orioles who also managed the Detroit Tigers from 1907-20, was one of the first 35 men elected into baseball’s Hall of Fame. During Jennings’ tenure, scores began to be recorded.

1990 National Champions

Georgia earned the 1990 NCAA crown after defeating Oklahoma State 2-1 in the title game. Also, they made a trip to the White House and met President George Bush. Mike Rebhan was named Most Outstanding Player in the CWS after beating the Stanford Cardinal and Mike Mussina twice. In 1996 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the CWS, Rebhan was named to the CWS All-Decade team for the 1990s.

Foley Field

Georgia has played here since 1966. In 1990, the field was renovated at a cost of $3.5 million. The current stadium has a seating capacity of 3,291, and includes indoor and outdoor bullpens, indoor batting cages, a spacious locker room and players lounge, equipment room, and one of the top press facilities in the country. In 2001, Foley Field served as host to an NCAA Regional and Super Regional as the Bulldogs advanced to the College World Series. In 2004, Georgia played host to an NCAA Regional again and ultimately reached the College World Series after winning a Super Regional at Ga. Tech. In 2006 and 2008, Georgia played host to and won regionals and super regionals en route to the CWS.

Largest Crowds

First Field

Herty Field, named for Charles Herty a Georgia graduate and later a chemistry professor, spearheaded the efforts to redo the school’s athletic field as a home to all of its sports. He earned his doctorate at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and during this time he learned more about a different version of the sport of rugby, referred to as a football. Herty is credited with introducing the sport of football to his alma mater and serving as the first coach. Along with attracting Pop Warner, a former Cornell captain to eventually coach Georgia in football in 1895, he also helped Hughie Jennings become the first baseball coach. Steadman V. Sanford followed Herty as “physical director” and by 1912, a new facility for both baseball and football was built and eventually named Sanford Field.

Home: 4,461. On March 21, 2009, third-ranked Georgia blanked 25thranked Miss. State 4-0 behind the pitching of Alex McRee, Michael Palazzone, Will Harvil and Dean Weaver who combined to register 14 strikeouts. Joey Lewis and Lyle Allen accounted for all the runs with home runs. Georgia went on to sweep MSU as a record 12,026 attended the three-game series. Road: 28,836. #15 Ga. Tech beat #12 Georgia 12-5 at Turner Field in Atlanta on May 11, 2004. At the time, it ranked as the second largest crowd to see a college baseball game in NCAA history.

Longest Tenure at the Helm

“Big Jim” Whatley served as the Georgia mentor for 25 seasons (1950, ’52-’75), recording 336 wins, second most in Bulldog history. Whatley passed away in May of 2001 at the age of 88.

National Honors

First Round Draft Picks

Most Successful Major Leaguer

In 1908, team captain Frank Martin led UGA to a 20-2 campaign and its first-ever Southern Championship. The team’s record of 20 straight wins stands today. The two losses came to professional teams in exhibitions. Famed sportswriter Grantland Rice, then sports editor of the Atlanta Journal, called the 1908 team “the greatest baseball team - or any other kind of team - ever assembled in the South.” Georgia won its first SEC title in 1933. Georgia has had eight first round picks in the annual Major League Baseball Draft: Larry Littleton (1976), Jeff Pyburn (1980), Derek Lilliquist and Cris Carpenter (1987), Kendall Rhine (1992), Brooks Brown (2006), Gordon Beckham (2008) and Joshua Fields (2008). Cris Carpenter

Georgia has had 35 All-Americans in the program’s history including most recently Rich Poythress (1B) in 2009, Gordon Beckham (SS) and Joshua Fields (RHP) in 2008.Twice in Bulldog history, Georgia has had a player win National Player/Pitcher/Closer of the Year honors. Outfielder Ron Wenrich was named National Freshman of the Year in 1985. Derek Lilliquist was named National Pitcher of the Year in 1987. Fields was named the National Stopper of the Year in 2008.

Spurgeon “Spud” Chandler, who pitched for the Bulldogs from 1929-32, went on to play for the New York Yankees from 1937-47. He was a part of seven World Series teams, including six that won championships. DID YOU KNOW? When New York Yankee great Yogi Berra was called up to the big leagues, the first pitcher he caught was Spud Chandler.

Winningest Coach

Gordon Beckham and Joshua Fields

Steve Webber, who compiled a 500-403-1 record in 16 seasons (1981-1996). He led the Bulldogs to two College World Series appearances (1987, ’90), including a national championship in 1990. In 1987, Georgia finished the regular season with the best SEC record at 18-8. One of Webber’s former players, David Perno, has directed the Bulldog program since 2002. After his Georgia coaching career, Webber spent eight seasons in the New York Yankees organization including working as the Coordinator of Minor League Instruction from 2000-03. In 2010, Webber will begin his seventh season with the San Diego Padres organization. He will serve as the pitching coach for the Padres Triple-A club in Portland, Oregon.

History of Georgia Coaches BULLDOG TRIVIA

While C.E. Morris served as the coach for Georgia’s first team in 1886, Hughie Jennings is credited with being the Bulldogs’ first official coach. He played for 17 years in the Major Leagues while also managing the Detroit Tigers from 1907-20. He was the second shortstop and among the first 35 men elected to the Hall of Fame. Also during this era, former Bulldog Claude Derrick began his career with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1909 and played on two World Championship teams in 1910 and 1911. In 1912 with Baltimore, Derrick was the first roommate of rookie George Herman Ruth, better known as “The Babe.”

Foley Field Home of The Bulldogs

Foley Field, constructed at a cost of $3.5 million in 1990, is one of the finest baseball complexes in the country. The stadium’s capacity of 3,291 includes chairback and bleacher-style seating. The grandstand area is covered by a partial roof with both concession stands and rest rooms located in the stadium. A new playing surface and drainage system was installed in the summer of 2003.

Georgia Baseball Before Foley Field

The first home for the Diamond Dogs was Herty Field where they played from 1886 until 1911. After that, they moved to Sanford Field until 1943. The Bulldogs who played at Sanford Field and later advanced to the Major Leagues included Alf Anderson, Spurgeon Chandler, Nolen Richardson, Johnny Rucker, Fred Sale, Chick Shiver, and Homer Thompson. Bulldog Pond Lippett threw the first no-hitter at home in Georgia history, blanking Pittsburgh 6-0 in 1920. Sale pitched a perfect game at Sanford Field in 1923, a 4-0 win over Virginia. It was the first perfect game in Georgia history and one of only two to date. After World War II, the Diamond Dogs played on a field with no name located on “Ag. Hill,” where Stegeman Coliseum is today. When construction for the Coliseum began in 1962, the Diamond Dogs moved to their freshman field, which is next to where the Butts-Mehre building is now. In 1966, the Diamond Dogs moved to their current location, and two years later, it was named Foley Field. On May 5, 1990, a $3.5 million refurbished Foley Field was dedicated.

The 31,000-square foot center serves the needs of more than 500 student-athletes at Georgia with tutorial rooms, conference rooms, counselors’ offices, computer labs and teaching space. There is also a lecture hall, student lounge and a large banquet area. Adjacent to several athletic venues, the Academic Achievement Center is convenient for student-athlete access.

UGA has long experienced excellence on the playing field and in the classroom. Through the years, the Athletic Association’s academic staff has developed programs to address all aspects of a student-athlete’s collegiate experience -- academic achievement, personal development and career planning and placement.

Student Services

The primary emphasis of the Student Services staff is to assist UGA student-athletes to achieve their personal goals by ensuring that they earn a degree, by providing opportunities for personal growth, and by offering guidance in making career and employment decisions.The response to the career planning service has been especially positive. Southeastern employers in both the private and public sectors seek student-athletes as employees because of good work habits acquired through athletics and their ability to manage time wisely. 2009 Bulldog graduate Jonathan Wyatt was a starting outfielder on Georgia’s 2004 and 2006 College World Series teams.

of competition. Recently, Georgia was recognized by NACDA for its outstanding implementation of the CHAMPS/ Life Skills program which is directed by Robert Miles. The CHAMPS/Life Skills program focuses on five components that UGA emphasizes in the growth of and development of student-athletes: A Commitment to Athletic Excellence:

Robert Miles Director CHAMPS/Life Skills

This ensures that each student-athlete will be provided facilities, coaching and support services that will enable each to excel in a broad program of sports. A Commitment to Personal Development: This ensures that each student-athlete in the CHAMPS/Life Skills program will be provided opportunities to focus on personal growth issues such as values clarification, goal setting, fiscal responsiblity, decision making and stress management. A Commitment to Service: This is our challenge to student-athletes to give back to communities and individuals who are in need. With a clearly defined program of service, our student-athletes have opportunities to develop the foundation for a lifelong commitment to volunteerism.

The Bulldogs made several trips to the Omaha Home For Boys during the 2008 CWS.

A Commitment to Career Development: This places a priority on preparing for life after athletics. The program acquaints studentathletes with the job serach process, provides networking opportunities and ultimately assists with job placement. A Commitment to Leadership Development: This places an emphasis on programs and services that maximize student involvement and allows student-athletes to develop leadership skills. Student-athletes are encouraged to transfer the leadership training learned through athletic participation into all aspects of campus life. Georgia freshman Chance Veazey got a Bulldog sendoff from his teammates when he transferred from St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta.

President & Athletic Senior Staff Dr. Michael F. Adams President

Damon Evans Athletic Director

Dr. Michael F. Adams was named the 21st president of the University of Georgia on June 11, 1997. He immediately focused on securing UGA’s future as one of America’s premier public research universities. Widely recognized as a leader in higher education administration, Dr. Adams has held a number of significant leadership positions in intercollegiate athletics. He is chairman of the NCAA Executive Committee. A strategic plan, completed in 2001 at his direction, identified three themes for UGA’s growth in the first decade of the 21st century: Building the New Learning Environment, Maximizing Research Opportunities and Competing in a Global Economy. Under Dr. Adams’ leadership, student quality has risen steadily and the University of Georgia has been recognized as one of the nation’s very best public research universities for eight of the past 10 years by U.S. News & World Report. External funding for research, public service and instruction totals more than $200 million annually. Private giving to the university is at its highest level ever; UGA completed the Archway to Excellence Campaign on June 30, 2008 with more than $630 million. “The people of the state of Georgia deserve a flagship institution every bit as good as the citizens of Virginia or Michigan or California or North Carolina,” Dr. Adams said when he was named president. “I am committed to making the University of Georgia that kind of institution.”

University of Georgia football letterwinner and double degree holder Damon Evans was selected as Director of Athletics in December, 2003, and assumed duties officially on July 1, 2004. At the time, he was just 34, and one of the youngest athletic directors in the country. However, he had already established himself as an up-and-coming athletic administrator. Evans has received several honors including the Street & Smith’s Sports Business Journal “40 Under 40 Award” for 2004, 2005 and 2007, the UGA Terry College of Business Award as the “Outstanding Young Alumnus,” and Sports Illustrated’s “101 Most Influential Minorities in Sports.” Today, Evans oversees a nationally recognized program with 21 intercollegiate sports teams involving more than 600 student-athletes, an $84 million budget and a 260 person staff. He is a member of several Southeastern Conference and NCAA committees, Chairman of the NCAA Division I Leadership Council, and is involved in volunteer and community service roles across the state of Georgia. He was born in Nebraska but spent much of his youth in Gainesville, Georgia where he graduated from Gainesville High School after a stellar career both athletically and academically. He is married to the former Kerri Budd of Atlanta, and they have two children, Cameron and Kennedy.

Endowment Program The UGAAthletic Scholarship Endowment Program represents a long-term resource for providing scholarships to Georgia student-athletes. The program allows friends and supporters of the Athletic Association to invest in the educational opportunities of UGA student-athletes. A gift to establish a scholarship provides income towards funding a scholarship each year and permanently memorializes the donor or any individual in whose honor the scholarship is named. A full scholarship is endowed through a gift of $150,000. For more information on the Athletic Scholarship Endowment Program, please contact the UGAA at 877-GA-DAWGS or via e-mail at gadawgs@sports.uga.edu. The Athletic Association embarked on the largest fundraising campaign in school history in the summer of 2001. The $60 million Investing in Champions campaign was part of UGA’s $500 million Archway

to Excellence Campaign. On June 30, 2008, the campaign surpassed its objective with $65.4 million in gifts and pledges collected for the three featured components; the Athletic General Endowment Fund, the Athletic Scholarship Endowment Program and Facility Enhancements and Special Projects. This campaign was essential for UGA to remain a leader in the world of collegiate athletics and to continue to provide our student-athletes with the necessary tools to compete at the highest levels in the classroom and on the playing field. All athletic scholarship endowment donors are invited to an annual dinner where they have the opportunity to connect with the receipient of their scholarship. The following scholarships have been established to benefit student-athletes on the baseball team:

Leon Farmer Scholarship Endowment Leon Farmer Jr., and Leon Farmer III, UGA alumni from Athens, have fully funded four scholarships for student-athletes in football, men’s basketball, baseball and gymnastics in memory of Leon “Sarge” Farmer, a popular UGA and Athens High ROTC instructor and founder of Leon Farmer and Company. 2003-04: Rip Warren 2004-05: Adam McDaniel 2005-06: Mickey Westphal 2006-07: Ryan Peisel 2007-08: Ryan Peisel 2008-09: Rich Poythress 2009-10: Levi Hyams

2010 Baseball Camps DIAMOND DOG SUMMER AND HOLIDAY BASEBALL CAMPS

Directed by the University of Georgia head baseball coach David

Perno and camp coordinator Kris Edge, the summer of 2010 as well as in mid-December each year offer an opportunity to receive elite instruc-

tion with a positive approach in

covering all areas of the game of baseball. The fundamentals

and instructional programs

have been developed by Coach Perno and his staff.

With capacity of each

camp limited, there is an excel-

lent coach-to-player ratio. This allows each player to receive the most efficient instruction possible from the staff. It is our goal to have the best

coach-to-player ratio of any baseball camp in operation

and to assist each player to improve to his highest level of ability. We want each player

to leave the camp feeling that he is a better baseball player.

Registration and information for all individual camps can

be accessed through www.georgiadogs.com (click on Fan Zone/ Camps).

FACILITIES

All camp activities will be held at Foley Field, home of the University

of Georgia Bulldogs.

Atlanta Braves Series 1988: Atlanta 5, Georgia 0

West Palm Beach, Fla: Atlanta scored all five runs in the first three innings as first baseman Gerald Perry went 2-for-2 with two RBI. The game featured many rising stars for the Braves including Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, David Justice, Jeff Blauser and Ron Gant. Former Bulldog All-American Derek Lilliquist earned the win while Joe Kelly took the loss. NOTEWORTHY: This was the first game against a professional team in modern Georgia history. The Bulldogs got just two hits, singles by Bruce Chick and Brian Jester. The earliest exhibition came in 1908 when Georgia faced the New York Yankees, known as the Americans then, with New York winning 4-1.

1991: Atlanta 2, Georgia 0

West Palm Beach, Fla: The defending NCAA champion Bulldogs held the Braves to just four hits but a two-run home run in the fourth inning by newly acquired first baseman Sid Bream (2-for-2, 2 RBI) was the difference. William Brennan got the win in relief of Charlie Leibrandt while Joe Bodvake was tagged with the loss. NOTEWORTHY: Georgia got just three hits including two from first baseman Doug Radziewicz.

1994: Atlanta 10, Georgia 5

West Palm Beach, Fla: The Braves scored seven runs in their last three innings for a 10-5 win. Royal Thomas was the winning pitcher while Matt Clark got the loss. Ryan Klesko went 3-for-5 with a monster home run. Jim Polo, Scott Haley, Chris McCranie, Chad Whittemore and Pete Arenas each drove in a run for the Bulldogs. NOTEWORTHY: Georgia scored for the first time ever (2-0 in the first) and tied the game twice (3-3 in the fifth and 5-5 in the seventh). Atlanta hit four home runs (Klesko, Javy Lopez, Troy Hughes and Mike Kelly). Georgia’s Lloyd Rowland, who hadn’t played in a college game at that point in the year, went 2-for-2.

However, five of Atlanta’s hits cleared the fences including two off of Kyle Magee who got the loss while Bruce Chen went two innings for the win. Sophomore right fielder Adam Swann tied the game at 1-1 with a solo blast off Winston Abreu. Atlanta got homers from Brian Jordan, Reggie Sanders, Freddy Garcia, Trenidad Hubbard and Rafael Furcal. NOTEWORTHY: The national media swarmed down on the Braves complex this day with the arrival of pitcher John Rocker while for others the story was Andres Galarraga’s first game back from cancer. Sophomore catcher Doc Brooks nearly had an insidethe-park home run but he was thrown out at the plate. Sophomore left fielder Kris Edge and junior designated hitter Mark Thornhill had two hits apiece.

2002: Atlanta 11, Georgia 3

Lake Buena Vista, Fla.: Atlanta erased an early 2-0 deficit en route to an 11-3 win. Senior Brandon Anglin blanked the Braves through the first two innings. Atlanta took the lead in the third, scoring four runs on three hits including a two-home run by Mark DeRosa off freshman Bo Lanier. Trailing 8-2 in the sixth, sophomore David Coffey gave the Bulldogs a highlight as he launched a home run off Scott Sobkowiak. NOTEWORTHY: Seniors Darryl Blaze and Matt Cavender along with sophomore Justin Holmes had two hits apiece. Ned Yost threw out Wilson Betemit trying to steal second. Gary Sheffield made his Atlanta debut and went 2-for-2.

1998: Atlanta 6, Georgia 1

Lake Buena Vista, Fla.: Atlanta scored six runs on 10 hits, all singles, to post a 6-1 win. Georgia provided the Braves with three runs courtesy of two balks and an error.

NOTEWORTHY: Senior third baseman Ryan Peisel went 3-for-4 to lead the Bulldogs at the plate while freshman Justin Grimm, senior Joshua Fields and sophomore Alex McRee pitched a scoreless inning apiece to headline the nine pitchers who saw action.
