She was promoted to executive vice president and provost on April 1, 2006, after serving as provost and vice president for Academic Affairs since March 2003. During the decade she served as provost, the University underwent transformational change growing from 19,000 students in 2003 to more than 33,600 in 2012.

Alabama’s athletics programs likewise have excelled in recent years with four teams winning national championships in 2011-12. Dr. Bonner joined the faculty at The University of Alabama in 1981 as associate professor and head of the department of human nutrition and hospitality.

If you want to get involved, join one of more than 350 student organizations, help plan concerts and speaker series, participate in intramural teams or run for student government. If you enjoy the arts, you can take advantage of a rich and varied schedule of musical, dance and theatre performances, art galleries and exhibitions, lectures and readings by writers, poets and experts on every topic imaginable.

From the architecture on campus to the landscaping, The University of Alabama campus is one of the most beautiful places in the state of Alabama. The Ferguson Center was completed in 1973. Plans at the time called for the building to be constructed over Woods Hall, but it was built slightly to the north thanks to a student campaign to save the art building. The Ferguson Center Game Room located on the first floor is the perfect place to unwind, test your skill at a video game, play a friendly game of pool or ping-pong, or enter a campus tournament. With seven pool tables, video games, a ping-pong table, computer gaming and televisions, the Game Room offers a fun escape from the daily pressures of college life. The University of Alabama offers a complete educational, cultural and social experience. Whatever your interests, you’ll find a group, an organization, an activity or a program that will appeal to you at UA.

Alabama baseball gives back to the surrounding community. The Alabama baseball team spent much of the 2013 fall working out and preparing for the upcoming season, but in their spare time the team was very active in the Tuscaloosa area with numerous community service projects. The team visited various schools and nursing homes and hosted Halloween and Christmas parties for a number of school-aged children, all a part of head coach Mitch Gaspard’s plan of being active and giving back to a community that has supported the Crimson Tide for many years. “We want to be the most active team on the Alabama campus,” Gaspard said. “We put in a lot of hours this fall, supporting the community and local schools. When fans come to watch us play, we want them to see our guys as more than just baseball players. Our support in the community is important. We have a lot of loyal baseball fans in Tuscaloosa and this is our way to give back and thank them for all of their support. We had a busy fall and we will continue to support the community this spring as well.” The baseball team spent numerous hours with the Miracle League of Tuscaloosa, elementary students and the elderly over the fall, and once again spent an afternoon at the Sprayberry Education Center, where the team hosted a Christmas party for the students and faculty. Sprayberry is the special education facility for the Tuscaloosa County School System and serves the needs of children in five different programs, including preschool, multiple disabilities, autism, alternative and TARGET, for gifted education. One of the highlights for the Alabama baseball team has been its partnership with the Miracle League of Tuscaloosa, where the Crimson Tide players build relationships and encourage the participating Miracle League athletes during their games. The Miracle League of Tuscaloosa is an organization that provides a baseball field for children and young adults with disabilities to play baseball, and believes that every child deserves a chance to play baseball! The field is a rubberized surface that is accessible and safe for players of all abilities, even players that use walkers or wheelchairs. “Our players love it when the Alabama baseball players come out to the Miracle League field,” Sara Martin. “The Alabama players are so

MIRACLE LEAGUE OF TUSCALOOSA During the 2013 fall semester, the baseball team spent a Saturday supporting the players of The Miracle League of Tuscaloosa. The Miracle League provides opportunities for children with disabilities to play baseball. The motto of the Miracle League, “Every child deserves a chance to play baseball.”

kind and seem to really enjoy playing with the young Miracle Leaguers. The Alabama Baseball team and the coaches are so kind and generous to have “Miracle League at the Joe”. They invite the Miracle League players to come down on the field to stand with them for the National Anthem. They make the Miracle League players feel welcome and make them feel special.” The Alabama baseball team will make a number of trips to the Miracle League of Tuscaloosa field located at Sokol Park. In addition to attending the Miracle League games, the Tide will also welcome the Miracle League players to Sewell-Thomas Stadium twice during the season, when they host “Miracle League Day at The Joe” on March 14 and May 6.

“As athletes at the University of Alabama, it’s very important to give back to the community that supports us so much, as well as encouraging them! Our players realize how fortunate they are to have the skills and opportunity to play in the best conference in the country, so they understand how much it means to the Miracle League kids when we show up to their events. If all we can do is put a smile on a kid’s face and encourage them to achieve any goal they have despite their physical disabilities. I believe our baseball players have more fun at the Miracle League events than the Miracle League kids do.”


DCH MANDERSON CANCER CENTER Back in July, a number Alabama’s incoming baseball players visited the DCH Manderson Cancer Center. The nine players spent time with a number of patients receiving cancer treatment, talking and signing baseballs for the patients.

FIELD OF ANGELS During the 2013 fall semester, the baseball team spent a Saturday supporting the player of the Field of Angels program in Calera, Ala. The Field of Angels Baseball League is “Where Dreams Come True.”

SPRAYBERRY EDUCATION CENTER CHRISTMAS PARTY For the sixth straight year, the baseball team concluded the fall season with a Christmas Party at Sprayberry Education Center. The players brought gifts, signed baseballs and served the children treats during this event. The team led the group in Christmas carols and helped decorate the school’s Christmas tree.

2013-14 ALABAMA BASEBALL COMMUNITY OUTREACH EVENTS Below is a listing of all the locations the 2013-14 Alabama Crimson Tide baseball team provided outreach to the local community: - Friends of Jaclyn Foundation - Halloween Extravaganza - Project Angel Tree - Sprayberry Christmas Party - Field of Angels - Special Needs Baseball League - Glen Haven Nursing Home - Miracle League of Tuscaloosa - Baseball Buddies - Autographs on the Quad - Holt Elementary School Reading Program - Walker Elementray School visit - Visit to the DCH-Manderson Cancer Center

FRIENDS OF JACLYN FOUNDATION Grayson Anderson was partnered with the Alabama baseball team through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, which helped make him a member of the Tide squad in 2010. The Friends of Jaclyn Foundation (FOJ) is a nonprofit, charitable organization formed in 2005 to improve the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors and their families. On Oct. 2, 2008, when he was only two years old, Grayson was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was surgically removed on Oct. 6, 2008, however a follow-up MRI on Feb. 10, 2009, revealed a residual tumor in his brain stem. The tumor is still present but has not grown. On Oct. 11, 2010, Grayson became a member of the Crimson Tide family when he was adopted by the UA baseball team. Grayson was given his own locker and baseball gear to help him fit in with his new teammates. The Anderson family participated in all of the team’s activities during the day from start to finish. The day began with onfield, pre-scrimmage warmups and ended with him and his family enjoying the postgame meal.

FOR THE PAST 17 SEASONS, ALABAMA HAS RANKED IN THE TOP 15 NATIONALLY IN AVERAGE ATTENDANCE.


Sewell-Thomas Stadium has served as home for the Crimson Tide baseball team for more than six decades.

Sewell-Thomas Stadium located slightly off Paul W. Bryant Drive in the Alabama Athletics Complex, has played host to six NCAA Regionals, six SEC Playoff series and a pair of exhibition games with the New York Yankees in 1978 and 1984. The Crimson Tide used its home-field advantage to secure a berth in the College World Series in 1996, 1997 and 1999, winning 13 straight post-season home games in one of the most dominant runs in Crimson Tide baseball history. Alabama has compiled a 1,173-497-2 (.702) all-time record at Sewell-Thomas Stadium since its move to the current site in 1948. The Tide posted a 22-9 (.709) record at home in 2013 and won three of their five Southeastern Conference series, with a sweep of Texas A&M, while posting wins over No. 2 LSU and No. 5 Arkansas. Over the past 18 years, Alabama has been almost unbeatable at home, winning 70 of its 91 SEC series. Since 1995, Alabama has won 38 of 50 home series against SEC Eastern Division teams. A series loss to No. 3 Florida at the end of the 2010 season snapped a 14-series win streak versus Eastern Division schools that dated back to 2005. After going 1-2 in series against SEC Western Division opponents in 2013, Alabama has won 28 of 43 home series, including 14 of its past 20 against West Division foes. Alabama enters the 2014 season having won 34 of its past 45 SEC home series. In 2009, Alabama earned a home series win over top-ranked Georgia, adding to the Tide’s success at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. The Crimson Tide has won seven of its eight series against the No. 1 team in the land since 1985, with four of those series wins coming in Tuscaloosa. Alabama owns home series wins over Miami (Fla.) (1985), LSU (2007), Mississippi State (2006) and Georgia (2009) when those teams were ranked No. 1 in the country. The Tide baseball team has been a success at the gate as well, drawing more than 2,600,000 fans since the first stadium expansion in 1991. Over the past 22 years, Alabama has attracted 2,646,378 fans in 737 all-time openings. The Tide ranked second nationally in attendance from 1999-2002 and set a school record with 211,331 fans during the 2000 season, when every home game was sold out.

Frank Thomas Field opened on March 26, 1948, as a 2,000-seat facility that attracted many overflow crowds in the 1950s and 1960s under Coach Tilden “Happy” Campbell and Coach Joe Sewell. The inaugural game was played on March 26, 1948, with the Crimson Tide beating the Bradley Braves 5-2 in the first game of a doubleheader. Pitcher Clarence Flack delivered the first pitch at 2:02 p.m., on that afternoon in the Tide’s new baseball home. Dick Dill recorded the first hit at Thomas Field and Jack Rutledge swatted the first home run. Flack was the winning pitcher that afternoon for the Tide. Marvin Blemker also pitched and earned what is known today as a save. Since the inaugural game in 1948, SewellThomas Stadium has seen plenty of changes. The stadium was renamed Sewell-Thomas Field in 1978, honoring former Alabama football and baseball standout and Major League Hall of Famer Joe Sewell. Alabama played the first night game in school history on March 14, 1981, with a 13-8 victory over Western Kentucky. The ballpark has undergone two major renovations since it was erected in 1947, with the last coming in 1999. There are additional plans for future renovations on both the inside and outside of the stadium. The original grandstand was completed in time for the 1991 season and the Tide’s new ballpark held 2,700 fans. Wesley Construction of Talladega, Ala., built the new facility for $2.1 million and the completion of the permanent grandstand changed the name of the facility to Sewell-Thomas Stadium. In 1996, bleachers were added down the rightfield line to raise the stadium’s capacity to more than 4,000 as the Crimson Tide hosted an NCAA Regional for the first time that year. N.C. Morgan Construction of Tuscaloosa, was responsible for the most recent additions at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. The $4-million expansion project, which was completed prior to the 2001 season, involved extending the grandstand down the rightfield line. The addition of 2,000 seats raised the stadium capacity to 6,571 seats. The bench seats that filled the upper level of the grandstand were moved to the new addition. Chairback seats, similar to those in the lower level, were installed in the upper level. The stadium

also received three new ticket booths, five new concession stands and five new restrooms for men and women. Two “hawker” stands were added to allow for concession sales in the grandstand. The players and coaches likewise benefited from the 2001 renovations. The Crimson Tide moved into its spacious clubhouse in 2001. The expansion also included three indoor batting cages and pitching machines, a meeting room, training room, equipment room and coaches offices. A new stadium entrance was created in the fall of 2005 and a new sound system from All Pro Sound was installed prior to the start of the season. The ballpark also received a general facelift with new paint, signs and handrails as part of this $175,000 project. The most recent changes to Sewell-Thomas Stadium included a renovation to the players locker room, lounge and meeting room. The player facilities were completed in 2010, with the locker room getting maple wood lockers, a flat-screen television and a juice bar. The players lounge includes seating for the entire team, a pool table, additional televisions, and a large trophy case, that displays the team’s 14 SEC Regular-Season and seven SEC Tournament trophies.

MITCH GASPARD Head Coach

Fifth Year

LOUISIANA-LAFAYETTE, 1988

COACHES/STAFF

Mitch Gaspard returns for his fifth year as the head baseball coach at the University of Alabama in 2014. In his first four years as the head coach of the Crimson Tide, Gaspard led the Tide to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 2010 and 2011, before guiding the Tide to the schools 23rd NCAA Regional appearance in 2013 to reach the postseason in three of his four years at the Capstone. Gaspard has developed his own philosophies on hitting, pitching, defense and ways to build a championship program and one cannot argue with his success. That success is built on a foundation of hard work and high energy, both on and off the field. “We want to be known as a blue-collartype team,” Gaspard said. “I believe in hard work. We want to work hard in the classroom, during practice and in the games. We want to out-work the teams we play. Our strength and conditioning program is built around mental toughness. When the game is on the line in the ninth inning, we want to be mentally stronger than our opponent. We want the toughness to show in all areas of our team.” Gaspard also wants to translate that mental toughness to translate to the mound. “The number one goal for us pitchingwise is to command the strike zone. We’ve got to have that same aggressive style on the mound,” Gaspard said. “Throw the fastball, put it where we need it and get tough mentally on the mound, the same as many of our position players.” The 2010 season for Gaspard, his first as the head coach at Alabama, ended with 42 victories and an NCAA Super Regional appearance in his first season. Gaspard spent his first season as the head coach instilling that toughness for the Alabama program. The toughness translated into opening the season with a 16-1 record to match the best 17-game start in school history. Gaspard led the Tide to 14 wins over top-25 competition, and the 2010 season wrapped up with the team winning 13 of its final 17 games. The Tide finished the 2010 season with a 42-25 record, as Gaspard tied the school record for most wins by a first-year coach while becoming the first Alabama coach to lead his team to an NCAA Regional championship in his first season. One year later, Alabama advanced to the championship game of the 2011 NCAA

Tallahassee Regional and then after missing the post-season in 2012, the Tide, which featured four freshmen in the 2013 starting lineup, returned to the NCAA tournament, finishing with a 35-28 record and ranking 29th in the RPI. Over his first four seasons as the Alabama skipper, Gaspard led the Tide to a 133-115 (.536) record and three NCAA tournament appearances. He has coached one first team AllAmerican, three freshman All-Americans, has had two national Gold Glove Award winners, three ABCA All-South Region selections, five All-SEC honorees, four SEC All-Freshman Team picks, one SEC All-Defensive team recipient, and 44 players earn SEC Academic Honor Roll recognition. Gaspard has assembled a high-energy coaching staff with a deep passion for the game and deep passion for the Crimson Tide program. That spirited energy fostered by the coaching staff paid dividends in 2011, as the Tide fought its way to a 35-28 record and was ranked in the top-25 for several weeks, before playing in the championship game of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional against No. 6-ranked Florida State. Assistant coaches Dax Norris and Andy Phillips were All-America players for the Crimson Tide in the 1990s. Norris, the team’s pitching coach, played two years at Alabama in 1995-96, earning first team All-American honors in 1996. Phillips, currently the hitting and infield coach for the Tide, was a four-year letterwinner for Alabama from 1996-99. After his AllAmerican season in 1999, Phillips went on to play professionally for 11 seasons, including five in Major League Baseball with the New York Yankees, Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets. “The one unique quality we have here is we have power but we also have athletes with speed,” Gaspard said. “We’ve got to utilize that and have the aggressive style that’s going to put pressure on the defense. We can do that with a little bit of a running game, hit-and-run, playing the short game some and also being able to

hit the three-run homer. We can use all three packages on that.” Gaspard has learned from some of the best in the business. He comes from a coaching tree that is a virtual Hall of Fame. His 26-year coaching career has included playing and working for some of the best in the game, such as former LSU coach Skip Bertman, former Houston coach Bragg Stockton, and Jim Wells, the former Northwestern State and Alabama skipper. After graduating from Port Arthur-Jefferson High School, where he led the team to a state title and earned all-state honors at shortstop, Gaspard played one season for Bertman at LSU. He transferred to Houston in 1986 and finished his career with the Cougars. Stockton offered Gaspard his first coaching job and he spent one year at Houston, before moving on to the University of Louisiana-Lafayette for the next three seasons. From 1989-92, the Ragin Cajuns won three straight conference titles and played in three NCAA Regionals. During Gaspard’s days as an assistant coach for Wells at NSU, the Demons won Southland Conference titles in 1993 and 1994 and posted their first NCAA tournament win in NCAA Regional play in 1994. Gaspard was a pivotal figure as an ace recruiter and shrewd tactician during the remarkable revival of the Crimson Tide in the 1990s. Alabama had four SEC wins in 1994, but after Gaspard arrived the Tide won the SEC Tournament and was one win away from the College World Series in 1995. By the time Gaspard returned to NSU as the head coach in 2002, Alabama had earned six NCAA Regional appearances and three CWS berths, including a national championship game loss to LSU in 1997. In his first seven seasons as an assistant coach at Alabama, Gaspard helped mold the Tide into one of the nation’s finest defensive units. Alabama set numerous school records


coaches and staff

HOUSTON (1988) Gaspard’s first coaching position came at Houston in 1988, under the legendary Dr. Bragg Stockton. Gaspard tutored with the Cougars infielders, as Houston posted a 33-22-3 overall record. Gaspard’s first game as an assistant coach came on Feb. 13, 1988, against Texas Lutheran.

Mitch Gaspard guided the Tide to the NCAA Regional in three of four years as the head coach at Alabama. His first season as the Tide’s skipper (2010) resulted in an NCAA Super Regional finish and 42 wins, a record for a first-year coach at the Capstone.

and ranked among the nation’s top-10 fielding teams twice in his tenure. Gaspard was the chief recruiter for Alabama during that 1995-2001 span. In each of his first five seasons, Alabama ranked among the nation’s top-20 recruiting classes, including three straight top-10 classes according to Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball. Gaspard got his first head coaching position at Northwestern State in 2002 and compiled a 210-138 (.604) record in his six-year tenure. During that time, he led the Demons to a pair of Southland Conference championships, one SLC Tournament championship and a berth in the 2005 NCAA Baton Rouge Regional, where he led the Demons to the program’s second NCAA tournament victory. After the 2007 season, Gaspard returned to Alabama, where he reunited with Wells. After two years as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, Gaspard helped the Tide regain its baseball momentum and ultimately was named the Tide’s 30th head coach on Sept. 2, 2009, after Wells’ retirement. “It’s the ultimate for me and I’m extremely excited and honored to take over the program and move forward and strengthen where we’re at right now,” Gaspard said the day he was announced as the Crimson Tide head coach. “I consider Alabama to be the greatest university. We play in the greatest conference and against the best competition that there is in the country in college baseball.” Gaspard married Kim Howell in 1988. They have two daughters, Brae and Paeton. CREDENTIALS Gaspard has enjoyed success at every level of his baseball career as a player, assistant coach

and head coach. The fifth-year Crimson Tide head coach has been in the dugout for more than 1,800 games and his teams have compiled a 1,184-645-3 (.647) overall record, including a 343-253 (.576) record as a head coach. Those teams have won 10 conference championships and nine conference tournament titles, while playing in 17 NCAA Regionals and three College World Series. Gaspard has played or coached 17 teams that have won 40 or more games and three teams with 50-plus wins in a season. THE COACHING TREE Gaspard has been associated with some of college baseball’s top coaches, including Skip Bertman, Bragg Stockton and Jim Wells. Bertman changed the face of baseball in the Southeastern Conference and led the Tigers to five national championships. Stockton had great influence on Gaspard’s career and offered the young infielder his first coaching position. That first job has turned into more than 20 years of coaching excellence, with Gaspard demanding the best of his players on and off the field. Gaspard played a vital role in the revival of Alabama baseball in the mid-1990s. His keen eye for talent and his ability to teach the game of baseball helped send the Crimson Tide to the College World Series in 1996, 1997 and 1999. THE PLAYER Gaspard’s four-year collegiate career at LSU and Houston saw his teams compile a 148-91 (.619) overall record, post two 40-win seasons and play in two NCAA Regionals (1985 and 1987). He began his career at LSU in 1984 and 1985, earning one varsity letter on coach Skip Bertman’s first LSU squad in 1984. The 1984 edition of the Tigers posted a 32-23 overall

LOUISIANA-LAFAYETTE (1989-92) Gaspard spent four years at LouisianaLafayette and the Ragin’ Cajuns won four conference titles during his time on campus. ULL posted a 183-74 (.712) record during Gaspard’s time under head coach Mike Boulanger. In 1989, the Cajuns posted a 49-13 overall record and captured the American South Conference championship with an 11-4 mark. The following year, the Cajuns (47-18, 11-4) repeated as conference champs and advanced to the NCAA South I Regional in Baton Rouge, before losing to host LSU and Southern Mississippi in consecutive games. Louisiana-Lafayette (49-20, 14-4) pulled off the three-peat in 1991, winning a third straight ASC championship. ULL beat Texas, Clemson and Mississippi State during the 1991 regular season before advancing to the NCAA Regionals for the second straight year, finishing runner-up to eventual national champion LSU at the NCAA South II Regional in Baton Rouge. After an opening-round loss to Texas A&M, the Cajuns bounced back to beat Northwestern State, South Alabama and Texas A&M, before dropping the title game to the Tigers. In 1992, ULL (38-23) finished first in the Sun Belt Conference Western Division and played in the program’s third straight NCAA Regional, losing to Long Beach State and VCU at the NCAA Central Regional in Austin, Texas.

record. The 1985 team went 41-18 en route to the SEC Western Division championship and collected the school’s first NCAA Regional appearance since 1975. He transferred to Houston following his sophomore season and played two years for the Cougars, lettering in 1986 and 1987. Gaspard played on coach Rolan Walton’s final Houston team in 1986, helping the Cougars post a 35-23 overall mark. In his final season as a player, Gaspard helped the Cougars compile a 40-27 record and a berth in the NCAA Central Regional in Austin, Texas, under first-year head coach Dr. Bragg Stockton. The Cougars finished 1987 ranked 14th nationally.

NORTHWESTERN STATE (1993-94) Gaspard hooked up with Jim Wells for the first time in 1993, building a close friendship and working relationship over the next 15 years. In his two seasons as an assistant coach at Northwestern State, the Demons went 8529 (.737) and won two Southland Conference championships, one SLC Tournament title and played in one NCAA tournament. The 1993 NSU squad went 40-14 en route to the SLC title. The 1994 team won a school-record 45 games (4515) and earned a berth in the NCAA Midwest II Regional in Stillwater, Okla. Those 1994 Demons won eight games against top-25 clubs, set 19 school or SLC records and compiled an 18-6 conference mark.

ALABAMA (1995-2001) Gaspard followed Wells to Alabama and played a prominent role in the revival of Crimson Tide baseball. During his seven years as an assistant coach, the Tide posted a 320-127 (.732) record, played in six NCAA Regionals and made three College World Series appearances (1996, 1997 and 1999) in a four-year span. Alabama also won the 1996 SEC championship and captured four SEC Tournament titles (1995, 1996, 1997 and 1999). The Crimson Tide were the No. 1 seed at both the 1996 and 1997 CWS, becoming the first team to be the top seed in consecutive College World Series. Gaspard was responsible signing some of the nation’s top baseball players with five top-20 classes, including three straight top-10 rankings. One of his star pupils, Lance Cormier, earned AllAmerica honors on the field and in the classroom and left the Capstone as the program’s all-time leader in appearances, innings pitched, wins and strikeouts. Cormier was a fourth-round draft pick following his stellar collegiate career. With Gaspard on watch, Alabama fielded some of the finest defensive units in program history. Alabama led the SEC and ranked fourth nationally with a .971 fielding mark in 1996. The following year, Alabama led the league and ranked ninth nationally with a .968 fielding mark. The 1997 squad remains arguably the most prolific offensive team in school history, leading the nation in total hits (860), runs (679), total bases (1,571) and slugging percentage (.622). The 1997 Tide also ranked second nationally in home runs (160), home runs per game (2.29) and wins (56), all school records. NORTHWESTERN STATE (2002-07) Gaspard was named the head coach at Northwestern State after the 2001 season, following in the footsteps of Jim Wells, Dave Van Horn and John Cohen – all who had left the Louisiana school for SEC head coaching jobs, with each ultimately leading their SEC programs to the College World Series (Wells with the

Including nine years as an assistant coach (1995-2001 & 2008-09) at UA, Mitch Gaspard (8) has been part of nine NCAA Regionals and three College World Series appearances (1996, 1997 and 1999) in 13 seasons on the Crimson Tide coaching staff.

Tide, Van Horn with Arkansas and earlier with Nebraska, and Cohen with Mississippi State). Gaspard’s six-year record at NSU was 210-138 (.603), which included two Southland Conference championships, one SLC Tournament title and one NCAA Regional appearance. Under Gaspard’s guidance, the Demons had 28 AllSouthland Conference selections, including 12 first-team picks. Gaspard saw two NSU players win major awards under his watch: 2002 Southland Conference Pitcher of the Year O.J. King and 2004 CoSIDA Academic All-American Bobby Barbier. Gaspard led the Demons to SLC championships in 2002 and 2005. His first NSU squad captured the Southland Conference championship and finished with a 43-17 overall record, including a 14-10 mark in league play. The Demons ranked third nationally in fielding (.974), 11th in double plays (1.17), 12th in earned-run average (3.54) and 18th in winning percentage (.717). That 2002 NSU team also set the school records with 612 hits and 53 sacrifice bunts. Despite a solid RPI and key wins over South Alabama and Minnesota, the Demons were left out of the 2002 NCAA Tournament. The 2003 team then posted a 35-22 record, including a 16-11 mark in SLC play, and ranked 12th nationally with 2.02 stolen bases per game. Tigger Lyles was 19th nationally with 0.59 thefts per game. The 2004 Demons posted a 33-23 record and 16-9 mark in conference play. NSU set a school record with 134 stolen bases to rank sixth nationally with 2.34 per game. Lyles and Josh Boop were among the nation’s top stolen base artists, each with 0.52 stolen bases per game to rank 29th nationally. Gaspard led the 2005 NSU team to a 41-20 overall record and his first trip to the NCAA Regionals. The Demons posted a 22-5 conference record, setting the SLC record for wins en route to the league championship and a berth in the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional. The 2005 squad set the school record with 19 saves. Daniel Desclouds (10) and Blake Jones (8) accounted for 18 of those saves and both ranked among the nation’s top-50

ALABAMA (2008-09) Gaspard came back to Alabama as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator on July 9, 2007. He spent two years as the Crimson Tide top assistant coach and ace recruiter. Alabama went 72-49 over those two seasons and played in the 2009 NCAA Clemson Regional. The 2009 squad was one of the most potent offensive squads in the nation, as the Tide ranked among the nation’s top-25 teams in slugging percentage (7th), home runs (8th), doubles (12th), runs scored (18th), batting average (22nd), doubles per game (23rd) and total hits (25th). The 2009 Alabama team featured SEC Player of the Year Kent Matthes and a school record-tying five first team All-SEC selections. ALABAMA (2010-PRESENT) Through four seasons as the head coach at Alabama, Gaspard has led the Crimson Tide to a 133-115 (.536) overall record, while guiding the Tide to NCAA Regional appearances in 2010, 2011 and 2013. His 2010 squad was one win from earning the school’s sixth College World Series appearance, after winning the NCAA Atlanta Regional before falling to Clemson, two games to one, in the Super Regional series. Gaspard’s 42 wins in 2010 set a school record for wins by a first-year head coach, and he became the first coach in program history to lead his squad to a NCAA Super Regional finish in his first year. Taylor Dugas earned 2010 first team All-America honors by Baseball America and four players earned All-SEC honors, as

Dugas and shortstop Josh Rutledge were firstteam honorees. Following the 2011 season, four Tide players were drafted, including Adam Morgan (3rd round), Dugas (8th), Nathan Kilcrease (30th) and Brock Bennett (33rd). Dugas also was an ABCA Gold Glove outfielder, an All-SEC Defensive Team selection, a second team All-SEC honoree and an ABCA All-South Region selection. Dugas wrapped up his career at Alabama as the school’s all-time hits leader (334), while posting the most doubles (67) and triples (18) in program history. Gaspard inked one of the top recruiting classes in the country for the 2013 season, as the crop of 11 players (10 freshmen and one junior college transfer) was rated as the fourth-best recruiting class by Baseball America and the 16th-best class by Collegiate Baseball. The No. 4 ranking is the highest-rated recruiting class in Alabama history. That recruiting class paid dividends early, as the 2013 squad finished the year with four freshmen in the starting lineup, plus one in the midweek rotation and one in the closer’s role. The selections of Mikey White and Ray Castillo as Freshman All-Americans marked the second time Alabama had two Freshman AllAmericans in the same season. The talented group of freshmen, along with Gaspard’s other accumulated talent, earned a No. 2 seed to the 2013 NCAA Tallahassee Regional, the third NCAA Regional appearance for Gaspard and the 23rd for the University. White also earned second team All-SEC honors at shortstop, while Castillo and Kyle Overstreet were SEC All-Freshman Team selections. Overstreet also was named the Division I ABCA Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner at second base.

DAX NORRIS Assistant Coach

Seventh Year

ALABAMA, 1996

COACHES/STAFF

Dax Norris enters his seventh season as assistant coach at the University of Alabama in 2014. Norris who was an All-American catcher for the Crimson Tide in 1995-96 under head coach Jim Wells and then assistant coach Mitch Gaspard, currently works with the pitchers and catchers while helping coordinate the recruiting efforts for the Tide. “With Dax having played for Alabama, everybody remembers the type of player he was. He is the same way as a coach,” said Gaspard. “He is a high energy guy who gives you great effort every day. Dax bleeds crimson and white and was an All-American here. His time as a player here and in professional baseball really brings a wealth of knowledge to our program.” Norris, who was a hard-nosed players and one of the cornerstones of Alabama’s baseball revival in the 1990s, brings that same work ethic and intensity to the Crimson Tide coaching staff. He began his coaching career at the Capstone as the hitting instructor from 2008-10, before transitioning to the pitching staff and tutoring the catchers beginning with the 2011 season. Norris also handles a number of recruiting responsibilities for the program. During his 11-year professional baseball career, Norris played for the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros organizations before joining the coaching ranks in 2007. In his time with the two MLB organizations, he was associated with some of the best pitching minds in the game. With the Braves, he worked with legendary pitching coach Leo Mazzone and all-star pitchers Greg Maddox, John Smoltz and Tom Glavine, then later with Houston pitcher Andy Pettitte. With Norris and fellow Alabama All-American Andy Phillips spearheading much of the program’s player recruitment, the Tide entered the 2013 season with one of the top incoming classes in college baseball. The 11 signees who came to the Capstone for that 2013 season were rated fourth by Baseball America and No. 16 by Collegiate Baseball. Norris was instrumental in the development of a young pitching staff in 2013, highlighted by the success of freshman right-hander Ray Castillo. The Crimson Tide’s first-year closer recorded 12 saves, the highest total for a freshman in Alabama history and the third-best mark in the program’s single-season history. Castillo earned three post-season awards, earning Louisville Slugger first team Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball News, NCBWA second team Freshman All-American and SEC All-Freshman Team. Norris was also instrumental to developing the talents of walk-on freshman Mike Oczypok, who matched Tucker Hawley for the Tide’s best record (5-2) in 2013. Hawley, who returned from Tommy John surgery in 2012, fought back from injury to boast the lowest ERA on the Alabama pitching staff. The Alabama bullpen converted 21-of-24

save opportunities in 2013, to post the second most team saves in a season in program history. The Tide finished the 2013 season ranked 72nd in the country with a 3.70 earned run average and 52nd nationally in hits allowed per nine innings pitched (8.55). Following the 2011 campaign, Tide pitchers Adam Morgan and Nathan Kilcrease and catcher Brock Bennett were selected in the 2011 MLB Draft. Morgan, a junior in 2011, was the first pitcher selected by the Philadelphia Phillies Kilcrease was selected in the 30th round by the Oakland A’s and Bennett was a 33rd-round selection of the San Francisco Giants. After the 2012 season, reliever Ian Gardeck was selected in the 16th round by the Giants. As the hitting coach in 2010, Norris helped center fielder Taylor Dugas earn first team AllAmerica honors by Baseball America, after the sophomore hit .395 with 96 hits, 15 doubles, five triples, 59 walks and an on-base percentage of .525. Dugas ranked seventh in the country in walks, 17th in on-base percentage and 34th in hits. Junior shortstop Josh Rutledge finished sixth in the country with 107 total hits and joined Dugas as a 2010 first team All-SEC selection. Norris’ return to Tuscaloosa paid immediate dividends, as the Crimson Tide was one of the top offensive units in the country in 2009. That season the Tide ranked in the top-25 nationally in nine offensive categories, slugging percentage (7th, .566), home runs (8th, 107), doubles (12th, 142), runs scored (18th, 509), batting average (22nd, .330), doubles per game (23rd, 2.35) and total hits (25th, 689). Following the 2009 season, Norris, along with Gaspard, were named the SEC assistant coaches of the year by SEBaseball.com. Norris also tutored Kent Matthes, the 2009 SEC Player of the Year who led the nation with a school record 28 home runs. Matthes, a fourth-round draft pick by the Colorado Rockies, hit .358 with 28 home runs and 81 RBI in 2009. That season, Matthes ranked second nationally in home runs per game (0.50), third in slugging percentage (.858), sixth in RBI per game (1.45), 11th in RBI (81) and 12th in total bases (175). A finalist for several national awards, Matthes was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association District III Player of the Year. In addition to Matthes, Norris tutored second baseman Ross Wilson, shortstop Rutledge and third baseman Jake Smith during their 2009 first team All-SEC seasons. Outfielder Taylor Dugas was a 2009 Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball in addition to being selected to the SEC All-Freshman Team. Norris earlier worked with 2008 All-SEC performers Alex Avila and Brandon May. Avila hit .343 with 17 home runs and 62 RBI as a junior and was selected in the fifth round of the 2008 MLB Draft, making his Major League debut with the

Detroit Tigers on Aug. 6, 2009. He became the first Alabama player under Norris’ tutelage to reach the big leagues. May, a 36th round draft pick in 2009 by the Chicago Cubs, hit .347 with 12 home runs and 69 RBI and led the SEC with 39 RBI in 30 league games. In 2008, May hit .365 with five home runs and 50 RBI. Vin DiFazio was a 12th-round draft pick by the Texas Rangers following the 2009 season. Prior to his return to Alabama, Norris began his coaching career at Niceville (Fla.) High School, where he spent the 2007 season working under former Tide assistant coach Kevin Berry. Norris worked with the Niceville hitters and catchers and one of his star pupils was eventual Alabama pitcher Jimmy Nelson, who earned all-state honors in high school. Following his junior season at Alabama, Nelson was a second-round draft pick by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2010. Norris played 11 seasons with the Braves and Astros organizations, reaching the triple-A level with both clubs and voted to the 2002 triple-A allstar team as a member of the Richmond Braves. He played in 846 career minor league games and batted .265 with 73 home runs, 421 RBI and 771 total hits. Norris had a career-high 122 hits and 72 RBI for the Greenville (S.C.) Braves (class AA, Southern League) in 2000 and smacked a careerhigh 15 home runs in Greenville in 1999. During the off-seasons, Norris played in the Venezuelan and Dominican winter leagues and also ran his own hitting school. A 23rd-round draft pick by the Braves in 1996, Norris had been a two-year starter for the Tide. He batted .283 (72-for-254) as a junior in 1995 with three home runs and 34 RBI in 63 starts. Norris was named to the 1995 NCAA East Regional alltournament team, after batting .316 (6-for-19) with two runs scored and five RBI. Norris was elected team captain on the Tide’s 1996 SEC championship team that finished with a then-school record 50 wins. Alabama also captured the 1996 SEC Tournament championship at the Hoover Met and hosted an NCAA Regional for the first time in program history. Norris led the Tide to its first College World Series appearance since 1983 during his senior year. He batted .370 (105for-284) with seven home runs and 49 RBI, en route to being named a 1996 first team All-American by the Super Smith Team. Norris also was a first team All-SEC honoree and American Baseball Coaches Association All-South Region pick. Following his professional career, Norris completed his bachelor’s degree in human environmental science in 2007.

ANDY PHILLIPS Assistant Coach

Fourth Year

ALABAMA, 1999

Following a professional baseball career that spanned 12 seasons, including five in in Major League Baseball, Andy Phillips returned to the University of Alabama in 2011 as an assistant coach. Beginning with the 2014 campaign, Phillips enters his fourth season and is the hitting and infield coach for the Crimson Tide, while sharing recruiting responsibilities for the program. “Andy was a phenomenal player here, and I couldn’t have been happier with his decision to return to Alabama,” said Alabama head baseball coach Mitch Gaspard. “He is the most well-rounded person I have ever coached and been around, and we are very fortunate to have him join our coaching staff.” Phillips coached up a 2013 infield that featured freshmen Mikey White at shortstop and Kyle Overstreet at second base. Despite the youth, the Crimson Tide finished second in the country with 80 double plays, one shy of the national lead and one shy of the school record. White had a stellar year at the plate during Southeastern Conference play, posting a .350 batting average against conference competition, to rank eighth in the league. White earned second team All-SEC honors and was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball News. Overstreet was named the Division I Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner at second base after leading the SEC with 67 double plays turned in 2013. Overstreet, who garnered SEC All-Freshman Team honors, posted a .983 fielding percentage, committing just six errors in 363 chances. As a team, the Tide posted a .976 fielding percentage in 2013, the second best in program history. While leading the Tide’s hitting instruction the past three seasons, Phillips helped Taylor Dugas finish his career as the program’s all-time leader in hits, doubles and triples. Dugas notched his 323rd career hit against Mississippi State on May 5, 2012, to break the record Phillips held since 1999. Phillips also mentored Ben Moore, who hit .342 en route to Freshman All-America honors by Baseball America and an SEC All-Freshman Team selection in 2012. A four-year Alabama letterwinner (1996-99) and 1999 first team All-American, Phillips played for the New York Yankees (2004-07), New York Mets (2008) and Cincinnati Reds (2008) during his MLB career. Before returning to the Capstone in 2011, Phillips played two years in the Nippon Professional League (Japan) for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp (2009) and the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles (2010). “Coaching always intrigued me, but only in an ideal situation, and that is here at Alabama,” said Phillips. “I never wanted to get into coaching just to say I was a coach. There are a lot of things that I have aspired to do, but I’ve always had a passion for teaching and soaking in information. I always said that if I had the opportunity to coach here, I would do it, but it would only be here.”

Following a stellar playing career at Alabama, Phillips was a seventh-round draft pick by the Yankees in 1999. He made his Major League debut on Sept. 14, 2004, and in his first at-bat, he belted a home run over the Green Monster in Fenway Park on the first pitch he saw from Terry Adams. Phillips is one of seven players to homer in his first at-bat as a Yankee and became the 21st player in MLB history to hit a home run on the first pitch of his career. Phillips received the Yankees’ Kevin Long “Minor-League Player of the Year” Award following a 2004 season where he led all Yankees minor leaguers in batting average (.321) and RBI (101) while ranking second in home runs (30). He was voted the Most Valuable Player of the International League All-Star Game, after hitting a 10th-inning walk-off home run. Phillips later earned the James P. Dawson Award as the Yankees’ most outstanding rookie during the 2005 spring training. With the Yankees in the 2006 season, Phillips saw action in 110 games, posting a .240 batting average with seven home runs, 11 doubles and 29 RBI, as New York won the America League East Division title with an MLB-best 97-65 record. Phillips made one plate appearance in the American League Divisional Series against the Detroit Tigers. After returning to the minors for the start of the 2007 season, Phillips rejoined the Yankees on June 19, 2007, and in 61 games posted a career-high .292 batting average. The season was cut short when he suffered a broken wrist after being hit by a pitch. Phillips’ MLB career continued in 2008 as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, seeing action in 52 games with 73 at-bats. After hitting .233, Phillips was designated for assignment by the Reds and was picked up by the New York Mets, playing four games. He was designated for assignment by the Mets on July 1, 2008, and reclaimed by the Reds off waivers on July 3 but never returned to the Major League Baseball. On Dec. 22, 2008, Phillips was signed to a minor league contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates and was invited to Spring Training as a non-roster invitee. In April of 2009, he was traded to the Chicago White Sox, and assigned to the Charlotte Knights of the International League. On June 23, 2009, Phillips signed with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp of Nippon Professional Baseball, and after one season with the Carp, he played his final professional season with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in 2010. In his four seasons at Alabama (1996-99), Phillips posted a .356 career batting average with

61 home runs, 224 RBI and 322 hits. He ended his career as the all-time leader in home runs, RBI and hits, still holding the school records in career home runs and total bases (590). In the history of the baseball program at Alabama, Phillips is one of three players with 50 home runs and 200 RBI, one of four with 300 hits, and is the only player in school history with 50 home runs, 200 RBI and 300 hits. The Tide advanced to the NCAA Tournament all four years that Phillips wore the Alabama uniform, which included three College World Series appearances. He joins Manny Torres as the only Tide players to appear in the CWS during three different seasons. As a freshman in 1996, Phillips was part of a 50-19 squad that captured the SEC regular-season and tournament titles and advanced to the CWS, marking the third trip in school history and the first for the Tide since the 1983 season. Phillips hit .366 in 1997 with 15 home runs and 64 RBI to help the Tide post a 56-14 overall record, an SEC regular-season championship and a runnerup finish in the CWS, falling to LSU (13-6) in the national championship game. As a junior, Phillips hit .351 with 21 home runs and a career-high 81 RBI, as the Tide posted a 46-18 record after falling to Long Beach State (5-3) in the final game of the NCAA West Regional. As a senior, Phillips nearly hit .400 (.398), with 22 home runs, 22 doubles, 66 RBI and a .781 slugging percentage. He led the Crimson Tide to the 1999 SEC Tournament title, before advancing through the NCAA Regional and Super Regional rounds, and the Tide finishing third in the College World Series. After his senior campaign, Phillips was a first team All-America selection by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) and College Baseball Insider. He garnered third team All-America honors by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball. Phillips completed his bachelor’s degree in sports fitness management from the University of Alabama in 1999. George Andrew Phillips, born April 6, 1977, in Tuscaloosa, Ala., was raised in Demopolis, Ala., where he played baseball for the Demopolis Academy Generals. Prior to playing for the Tide from 1996-99, Phillips was a 41st-round selection out of high school by the Milwaukee Brewers as a shortstop in 1995. Phillips and his wife Bethany, married in 2004, have a daughter Isaiah.

In his current role with the Tide, Barbier is the team’s third base coach, coordinates the running game, works with the outfielders and oversees the Alabama Baseball Camps.

Barbier helped turn right fielder Ben Moore into a threat on the base paths in 2013. Moore had 16 stolen bases during his sophomore campaign to rank eighth in the SEC. Moore’s 16 steals were the most by an Alabama player since Taylor Dugas swiped 19 in 2010. Moore’s mark also ranks as the fourth-highest amount for a Tide player in the past decade, trailing only seasons amassed by Dugas and Emeel Salem (2006 and 2007). Barbier wrapped up an impressive four-year playing career in 2006 at Northwestern State, where he earned two All-Southland Conference honors and a CoSIDA Academic All-America award while playing for Gaspard. He completed his career being listed in the school’s top-10 in eight offensive categories. In 2004, Barbier became the eighth student-

athlete in NSU history to be named an Academic All-American. He hit .293 that season with a team-high nine home runs. The 29-year old Barbier played high school baseball at Archbishop Shaw in New Orleans, earning all-state, all-district and all-metro honors. He also was part of two American Legion state championship teams. Barbier earned his bachelor of science degree from Northwestern State in health and human performance in December of 2006. He is married to Kody (Sprout) Barbier, and the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Landry Claire, in August of 2012.

University of Alabama head baseball coach Mitch Gaspard added Ken Brown as the director of baseball operations for the Crimson Tide in September of 2011, with Brown embarking on his third season in that role during 2014. A member of the Alabama baseball team in 2005 and 2006, Brown returned to Tuscaloosa after spending three seasons (2009-11) in scouting and player development in Major League Baseball. “With the background and experience that Ken was able to gather in Major League Baseball, both in the front office and as an area scout, he brings a lot to the table for us,” Gaspard said. “This was a real opportunity for us to advance our position administratively. Ken is very intelligent and has helped our baseball program grow, not only on the field but also from an organizational standpoint.” Prior to returning to the Capstone, Brown was the area scout for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim from November of 2010 through August of 2011. His scouting area for the Angels included Alabama, Mississippi, West Tennessee and Arkansas. He also assisted with front office baseball operations, gaining experience in Major League administration areas including; waivers, dates and trades, serving as a player

development intern, and assisting with day-today operations of a Major League facility. From February 2010 through November 2010, Brown worked in the Texas Rangers organization, helping with amateur and professional scouting. He also assisted with 40-man roster management, MLB advanced scouting reports and the arbitration processes. Brown earlier completed the Washington Nationals Baseball Operations Diversity Internship Program (2009) and a season-long internship in the minor league operations department with the New York Mets (2009). In his role with the Mets, he assisted in all facets of player development and assisted with international operations. Brown earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Alabama in human environmental sciences in 2005. He was a two-time selection to the SEC Academic Honor Roll and received UA’s Distinguished Minority Student-Athlete Award in 2005. Brown continued his education at Alabama, completing a master’s degree in consumer management in 2008. In May of 2013, Brown obtained a graduate certificate in consumer conflict, negotiation and mediation from Alabama.

ALABAMA MAKES THE BIG DANCE With the nation’s 29th-best RPI and 12th-toughest strength of schedule, the Crimson Tide in 2013 returned to the NCAA tournament for the third time in four years under head coach Mitch Gaspard. It was the fifth time in the past six years and the 23rd time in school history that the Tide made the NCAA tournament. Despite starting four freshmen in the lineup throughout most of the season, Alabama earned a two-seed in the NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

CRIMSON TIDE REACHES THE WEEKEND IN SEC TOURNAMENT Following a 2012 season in which the Tide did not reach the Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament, Alabama finished its 2013 SEC slate with a 14-15 record to slot into the seven seed at Hoover. In the opening singleelimination game against 10th-seeded Auburn, the Tide fell behind in the third inning 3-1, but surrendered no more runs as they battled back to take a 6-3 victory. Alabama also posted a 7-5 extra-inning victory against No. 21 Mississippi to make it to Friday, but the Tide suffered Wednesday and Friday losses to No.2 LSU, 3-0 and 3-2, respectively, in the SEC Tournament run.

TIDE LASTS UNTIL SUNDAY IN NCAA REGIONAL

2013 REVIEW

In Alabama’s opening matchup of the 2013 Tallahassee Regional, No. 26 Troy broke ahead on a three-run home run and added two more runs in the third inning to open an early lead. Taylor Guilbeau kept the Trojans off the board for the rest of the game, but Tide could not claw back and dropped the opener, 5-2. On the back of another brilliant performance down the stretch from freshman right-hander Mike Oczypok, the Tide kept their season alive with a 3-2 win over Savannah State. The Tide took an 8-5 lead in their rematch against Troy but could not hang on, as their season ended in a 9-8 defeat after the Trojans scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning.

THREE TIDE PLAYERS NAMED TO NCAA TOURNAMENT ALL-REGIONAL TEAM Senior catcher Brett Booth and freshmen infielders Mikey White and Kyle Overstreet earned 2013 NCAA Tallahassee Regional All-Tournament honors. Booth paced the Tide over the three games by hitting .545 (6-for-11) with a double, two runs scored, three RBI and a hit-by-pitch. White finished with a .300 average, two walks, two runs and an RBI. Overstreet went 3-for-13 and added a run scored and an RBI. In the field, the middle-infield tandem of White and Overstreet combined to turn four double plays.

2013 ALABAMA SQUAD SHOWS IMPROVEMENT After a 2012 season in which the Tide went 21-34 and missed the NCAA tournament, the Tide rebounded in 2013 for a 35-28 record that tied for the second-best record in the Mitch Gaspard era. Despite being a young team that started four freshmen in the lineup and one in the closer role, Alabama won 14 more games than the previous season and bounced back to make the SEC and NCAA tournaments. The 2013 squad’s 14-15 mark in the SEC is a five-game improvement from the previous season and also marks the secondbest SEC record under Gaspard’s guidance.

KYLE OVERSTREET WINS GOLD GLOVE AWARD Freshman second baseman Kyle Overstreet was selected as the 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove second baseman by the American Baseball Coaches Association. Overstreet finished his first season at Alabama with a .983 fielding percentage, committing only six errors in 363 chances. He also helped Alabama turn 80 double plays in 2013, as he was involved in 67 of those twin-killings.

MIKEY WHITE AND RAY CASTILLO ARE ALL-AMERICANS Freshman shortstop Mikey White and freshman closer Ray Castillo were selected as Louisville Slugger Freshmen All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball. Castillo also earned second team Freshman All-American honors by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. The rookie right-hander converted 12-of-15 saves opportunities and set a school record for the most saves in a season by a freshman. White finished the season with a .287 batting average to go along with 11 doubles, a triple, two home runs and 30 RBI.

MIKEY WHITE, KYLE OVERSTREET AND RAY CASTILLO EARN SEC HONORS

MIKEY WHITE AND KYLE OVERSTREET MOVE INTO TOP THREE IN ASSISTS Mikey White and Kyle Overstreet continued to etch their names into the Alabama single-season record books in 2013, posting big numbers in the defensive assists category. Overstreet tied Evan Bush’s 2006 mark with 204 assists, giving him a share of third place in the single-season list. White’s 209 assists in 2013 rank second all-time in school history and fell one short of the single-season record set by Joe Caruso in 1996.

BRETT “THE ERASER� BOOTH In addition to a leadership role, Brett Booth was a defensive stalwart throughout the 2013 season for the Crimson Tide. Out of 78 steal attempts against him, Booth threw out 37 runners attempting to steal (47%), a mark that put him out in front of the SEC by a wide margin. Ole Miss catcher Stuart Turner was second in the SEC after he threw out 21 base runners attempting to steal in 2013. When quick-to-the-plate sophomore righty Spencer Turnbull was on the mound, Booth threw out 12-of-13 (92%) attempted base-stealers.

AUSTEN SMITH AMONG CAREER PUTOUT LEADERS

After posting a .287 batting average for the season and leading the team with a .350 average in conference play, freshman shortstop Mikey White was named to the All-SEC Second Team. Freshman second baseman Kyle Overstreet, along with freshman righty Ray Castillo, whose 12 saves are third all-time in Alabama single-season history, were named to the SEC AllFreshman Team.

Junior first baseman Austen Smith posted an Alabama single-game record with 21 putouts at fifth-ranked Louisville on March 8, 2013. Smith finished the 2013 season with a career-high 478 putouts, the 10th most in a single season at Alabama. The Bama first baseman ended 2013 ranked fourth in school history with 1,167 career putouts.

2013 CRIMSON TIDE SETS RECORD FOR EXTRA-INNING GAMES

TIDE INKED EIGHT DURING EARLY SIGNING PERIOD

The Crimson Tide played a school record nine extra-inning games in 2013, breaking the previous record of eight set by the 1986 team. The Tide posted a 3-6 record in its extra-inning games, as all nine games came against nationallyranked opponents. Alabama posted extra-inning wins over No. 1 Vanderbilt, No. 2 LSU and No. 9 Arkansas. Alabama was the only team to defeat both Vanderbilt and LSU during the 2013 season.

Alabama traveled all over the Southeast to sign eight high-end prospects for 2014, with five coming from the state of Alabama and three from out of state. The in-state prospects were outfielder Hunter Webb from Salem (Russell County HS), infielder Casey Hughston from Mobile (Baker HS), right-hander Geoffrey Bramblett from Hoover (Hoover HS), shortstop Taylor Propst from Huntsville (Huntsville HS), and Florence left-hander Thomas Burrows (Mars Hill Bible School). The rest of the group is made up of catcher Will Haynie from Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy, RHP Nick Eicholtz from Odessa, Fla. (Cambridge Academy), and outfielder William Elliott from Oxford (Miss.) High School.

ALABAMA ROLLS IN MIDWEEK GAMES During the 2013 regular season, the Crimson Tide played well in midweek games, posting a 12-3 record in their 15 midweek outings. After starting the season with a 5-3 record in midweek games, the Tide ran off seven straight midweek victories to close the season. Alabama defeated Samford, Southern Miss and Alcorn State twice, split with Memphis and UAB, and won single games against Troy, Jacksonville State and Mississippi Valley State during the midweek slate. The Tide also played Auburn in the Capital City Classic, where they lost the non-conference game to the rival Tigers for the fifth straight season.

IT TAKES TWO The additions of Kyle Overstreet and Mikey White up the middle paid immediate dividends defensively in 2013, as the Tide finished one double play shy of Towson for the national team lead and one shy of the school record, with 80 total double plays. Overstreet contributed on 67 double plays, a mark that led the SEC and fell four short of Robbie Tucker’s single-season school record in 1997. Austen Smith participated in 56 double plays and White had 55.

CLOSING TIME Alabama recorded 21 saves as a team in 2013, one short of the school record. Freshman Ray Castillo’s 12 saves led the team and are the most ever recorded by a Tide freshman. The rookie right-hander’s 12 saves also tied Brian Reed (2003) and Troy Brauchle (1983) for third best in school singleseason history and cracked Alabama’s career leaders list at ninth. Alabama also received saves from Jake Hubbard (3), Justin Kamplain (2), Tucker Hawley, Taylor Wolfe, Jay Shaw and Keaton Haack.

2013 ALABAMA DRAFT RECAP Two players from the 2013 Alabama roster were selected in the MLB First Year Player Draft. Right-handed pitcher Charley Sullivan was the first Tide player chosen when the Detroit Tigers selected him in the 29th round. Catcher Brett Booth then was selected by the Houston Astros in the 34th round. A pair of incoming right-handed pitchers also were selected, as Nick Eicholtz from Odessa, Fla., was a 29th-round selection by the Milwaukee Brewers and Hoover High School senior Geoffrey Bramblett was picked in the 37th round by the Atlanta Braves.

He also had the game-winning hit in his first collegiate game. Salem took home the award after the Tide’s SEC opening series against Tennessee. In the series, Salem hit .462 (6-for-13) with three runs scored, six RBI, a pair of doubles, two walks and a stolen base. Vincent garnered his honors after performing his best in a crucial series against top-ranked Vanderbilt. The rookie DH hit at a .545 clip (6-for-11) in the three-game series with an on-base percentage of .643.

Honors and Awards 1977 MLB HALL OF FAME MEMBER - JOE SEWELL

RECORDS & HISTORY

Joe Sewell had a knack for this “funny game.” That knack has made him the only player in Crimson Tide baseball annals to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in the quaint little town of Cooperstown, N.Y. The only other Crimson Tider in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is New York Yankees legendary broadcaster Mel Allen, who along with Florida alum Red Barber earned induction in 1978 as the inaugural winners of the Ford C. Frick Award. Inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1977, Sewell’s career spanned 14 seasons with the Cleveland Indians and New York Yankees. From the moment he left the Capstone as student body president in 1919, Sewell’s major league career was the stuff dreams are made of. After leading the Crimson Tide to the 1919 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association championship, Sewell was selected by the Indians and signed with the New Orleans team in the Southern Association. The Titus, Ala., native made his Major League debut with the Indians in the heat of a 1920 pennant drive, after their everyday shortstop was killed after being hit with a submarine pitch. Sewell rose to the challenge and batted .329 over the final 22 games of the season to help the Indians clinch the American League pennant. Alongside future Hall of Famers Stanley Coveleski, Tris Speaker and Bill Wambagass, Sewell and the Indians disposed of the Brooklyn Robins in seven games, taking the 1920 series five games to two. Sewell batted only .174 (4-for-23) in his first trip to the fall classic, but was solid in the field in all seven games, helping the Indians lay claim to the World Series title. He played 11 years for the Indians before joining the New York Yankees roster for the final three years of his outstanding Major League career. Sewell once again tasted greatness with Yankees in 1932, when New York beat the Chicago Cubs in the most talked about World Series in history. The Yankees won 107 games in 1932 and swept the Cubs in the best-of-seven fall classic. The Yankees took the first two games at Yankee Stadium (12-6 and 5-2) before moving to Wrigley Field for games three and four.

84 ALABAMA BASEBALL

In game three, Babe Ruth, a teammate and close friend of Sewell, made baseball history. Ruth’s fifth inning at-bat off Chicago hurler Charley Root is still the most talked about home run in baseball history. Ruth earlier had slugged a three-run home run in the first inning and legend has it that, after taking two called strikes in his third at-bat, the Sultan of Swat pointed to center field before he slammed a two-run home run over the head of Johnny Moore. It has become the most debated home run in the history of the fall classic. The Yankees won the game 7-5 and then closed out the Cubs the following day (13-6) to win the 1932 World Championship. In a lineup filled with Hall of Famers from Frank Crosetti to Bill Dickey to Lou Gehrig to Ruth, Sewell batted .333 (5-for-15) in the four games with six runs scored and two RBI. He was on base when Ruth slugged his first-inning home run in game three and witnessed the famed “called shot” from the Yankees dugout. Sewell also was a close friend and roommate with Yankee legend Lou Gehrig, whose career tragically was cut short due to ALS in the 1930s. In 14 Major League seasons, Sewell batted .312 (2,226-of-7,132) with 1,051 career RBI. He played in nearly 2,000 career games and logged over 7,000 at-bats for the Indians and Yankees. He also had more than 2,000 hits, 1,000 runs scored and 1,000 RBI. Sewell hit .300 or better in 10 of his 14 seasons in the big leagues. His best season was 1923 when he batted .353 (195-for-553) with the Indians. He collected a career-high 204 hits with the Indians in 1925, when he posted a .336 (204-for-608) batting average. An outstanding fielder, Sewell led the American League in putouts and assists four times in his career and led the league in fielding percentage three times. A “singles hitter” overshadowed by some the game’s greatest sluggers, Sewell set five major league records that continue to pass the test of time: fewest strikeouts in a season (3, two times); consecutive games without a strikeout (115); consecutive at-bats without a strikeout (437); most seasons of 500 or more at-bats with fewer than four strikeouts (4); and fewest career strikeouts (114). Throughout his sparkling 14-year career at the pinnacle of the baseball profession, Sewell turned in numbers that simply are amazing to the average baseball fan. For instance, his 114 career strikeouts in more than 7,000 career at-bats averages out to one strikeout for every 63 at-bats, and one strikeout in every 16 games played. And still years later, in 1964 at age 66, Sewell, a Tuscaloosa resident and businessman since his college days, took over the Crimson Tide’s baseball program as head coach. In his seven-year tenure, Alabama compiled a 114-99 (.535) record, which included winning the 1968 SEC Championship and a trip to the NCAA District III Playoffs in North Carolina. Sewell was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 1977, along with Ernie Banks, Martin Dihigo, Pop Lloyd, Al Lopez and Amos Rusie. He is one of 11 Alabama natives to be enshrined in Cooperstown, joining fellow legends Hank Aaron (Mobile), Monte Irvin (Columbia), Heinie Manush (Tuscumbia), Willie Mays (Westfield), Willie McCovey (Mobile), Satchel Paige (Mobile), Ozzie Smith (Mobile), Don Sutton (Clio), Billy Williams (Whistler) and Early Wynn (Hartford). Sewell died on March 6, 1990, in Mobile, Ala., after a lengthy illness. At the time of his death he was the oldest living baseball Hall of Famer at 91 years of age.


Honors and Awards FORD C. FRICK AWARD - MEL ALLEN

Former Crimson Tide baseball manager and public address announcer Mel Allen was the voice of the New York Yankees for 39 years. Allen served as emcee for “Babe Ruth Day” at Yankee Stadium.

In his 58 years of sports broadcasting, Allen did it all. He called thousands of Yankees games, 24 Major League Baseball World Series, 20 All-Star Games, 14 Rose Bowls, five Orange Bowls, two Sugar Bowls, and more than 2,000 newsreels. A winner of numerous industry, listener and viewer awards, Allen is a member of National Baseball Hall of Fame (as the first Ford C. Frick winner in 1978), National (USA) Sportswriters and Broadcasters Hall of Fame (1972), the American Sportscasters Association Hall of Fame (1985), the Radio Hall of Fame (1988), the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, the University of Alabama Communication Hall of Fame (1995) and was enshrined to Monument Park at Yankee Stadium (July 25, 1999). Decades ago, Allen sat next to a weakened Lou Gehrig in the dugout before a game. Gehrig soon would die from the disease that forced his emotional, early farewell from the game. “Mel, sometimes your descriptions of the game are the only thing that keeps me going,” Gehrig said. Allen went into the tunnel and cried like a baby. How about that?

RECORDS & HISTORY

Mel Allen is as much a part of the national pastime as the squeeze play, hot dogs, and pennants flapping in the breeze. And he never played in the big leagues. Instead he broadcasted the game, and that allowed the fans to play the games over and over in their minds. His voice is the one that millions of fans associate with the game of baseball. Born Melvin Allen Israel, the son of a traveling textile representative in Birmingham, and raised all over Alabama, he was a spindly student manager for the Crimson Tide football and baseball teams when he received his chance to announce games. Allen’s first assignment behind the microphone was doing play-by-play of a football game between Tulane and Alabama, his beloved alma mater. While a student at Alabama, Allen sold shoes, coached speech and debate, and ultimately earned his law degree before winning an audition to announce in New York for CBS Radio. After the audition with CBS in 1936, Allen broadcast his first World Series for the network in 1938. He joined the Yankees the following year and stayed for 25 more, delighting millions of baseball fans with his warm sign-on – “Hello, everybody!” – and his trademark phrases “How about that!” and “Going, going, gone!” Allen was the voice of the New York Yankees from 1939 to 1964, covering the team that aroused more passion than any other in baseball. With his vivid phrases and pleasing Alabama drawl, he called many of the great events in the game: the Babe’s good-bye, Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series, Mantle’s heroics, Maris’ record-shattering summer (1961), Casey’s barbs and Yogi’s convoluted pronouncements. “Mel Allen meant as much to Yankee tradition as legends like Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle,” Yankees owner George Steinbrenner said. “He was the voice of the Yankees.” In an era before television, millions of radio listeners around the nation envisioned the game through the descriptions of this thoughtful and articulate Alabamian who prided himself on being both a reporter and storyteller. Allen later moved to the Milwaukee Braves in 1965, went on to broadcast for the Cleveland Indians and handled a variety of assignments for NBC. He returned as the voice of the New York Yankees in 1970s and began a 19-year association with This Week in Baseball as host of the popular television program.

Honors and Awards 1983 GOLDEN SPIKES AWARD/BASEBALL AMERICA PLAYER OF THE YEAR - DAVID MAGADAN

RECORDS & HISTORY

Never before or since has an Alabama baseball player had a season at the plate like David Magadan did in 1983. The Alabama junior shattered school and Southeastern Conference records that still stand today in becoming the 1983 Golden Spikes Award winner, presented annually by the United States Baseball Federation. Magadan, who concluded the 1983 season with six school career records (at-bats, runs, hits, RBI, doubles, total bases and batting average), was a major contributor in Alabama’s national runner-up spot to Texas at the College World Series. He paced the Crimson Tide to winning the NCAA South Regional and Southeastern Conference titles en route to a 46-11 record, one the most successful campaigns in school history. After batting an incredible nation-leading .525 (114-for-217) as a junior, Magadan was voted the 1983 College “Player of the Year” by Baseball America and he also led the team in hits (114), doubles (31), total bases (180) and slugging percentage (.829) during his record-setting campaign. Magadan was a consensus first team All-America selection by the American Baseball Coaches Association, the Sporting News, Baseball America and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association during the 1983 season and was a three-time All-SEC selection at the Capstone. Two years earlier, Madagen hit safely in his initial 27 games as a freshman in 1981 and as a junior, went an incredible 10-for-11 (.909) at the 1983 SEC Tournament in Starkville, Miss., which included a five-hit game (2 doubles, 2 HRs) against Florida, en route to being named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament. He also set the CWS record by hitting safely in his first eight trips to the plate and wound up batting .550 (11-for-20) at Omaha in five games. After his freshman season at Alabama, Magadan led his American Legion team to the 1981 American Legion World Series title and was named the “Sports Club Amateur of the Year” when Tampa Post 248 won the national title. Magadan also is recognized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for his amateur accomplishments in 1981. The Tampa native played in 162 games during his Alabama career and batted .439 (268-for-610) with 64 doubles, 14 home runs and 188 RBI. His .439 batting average still ranks among the leaders in Division I baseball and remains atop the SEC record books as the highest career average in league history. Magadan still holds Alabama records for single-season batting average (.525, 1983), career batting average (.439, 1981-83), singleseason hits (114, 1983), single season doubles (31, 1983) and singleseason RBI (95, 1983). He also set the Alabama standards for highest batting average for a freshman (.399, 1981) and junior (.525, 1983) and most RBI (95, 1983) by a junior and shares the single-game record with five hits, a feat he accomplished an Alabama record three times against Alabama Christian (April 16, 1983), Florida (May 13, 1983) and Arizona State (June 4, 1983). First drafted by the Boston Red Sox out of Tampa’s Jesuit High School, Magadan then was one of six Alabama players selected in the 1983 MLB Draft. He signed with the New York Mets and was assigned to the Columbia, S.C. Mets in the class A South Atlantic League in his first pro ball assignment. In that first summer, Magadan batted .336 with three home runs and 32 RBI. Magadan made his Major League debut for the Mets against the Chicago Cubs on Sept. 17, 1986, as the starting first baseman at Shea Stadium. In the game, he went 3-for-4 with two RBI, including the gamewinner in the eighth inning that clinched the National League Eastern Division title for the eventual world champions. In 1990, Magadan finished third in the National League batting race with a career-best .328 (148-for-451) average. He played 16 years in the Major Leagues before retiring from the game after the 2001 season. In those 16 seasons, Magadan hit .288 (1,197-for-4,159) with 42 home runs and 495 RBI in 1,582 career big-league games. After his playing days, Magadan was named the roving minor league hitting instructor by the San Diego Padres, before being promoted as the

big-league hitting coach prior to the 2003 season. After four seasons with the Padres, Magadan was named the hitting coach for the Boston Red Sox in 2007. After working six years in Boston, Magadan began working as the hitting instructor for the Texas Rangers in 2013. In June of 2010, Magadan joined former Alabama All-American and head coach Joe Sewell as the only Tide players to be inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame.


Honors and Awards Andy Phillips is one of the most decorated players in the history of Alabama baseball. A member of coach Jim Wells’ first signing class, Philips rewrote the Alabama record books and in the process took the Crimson Tide baseball program to new heights with three trips to the College World Series in his four-year career. That impact was not limited to the Crimson Tide baseball family, as his talents were recognized nationally by writers, broadcasters and professional scouts. A consensus All-America selection as a senior, Phillips was named the 1999 National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association District III Player of the Year and finished runner up to Baylor’s Jason Jennings for the 1999 Dick Howser Trophy, presented by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association to the best player in college baseball. Florida State’s Marshall McDougal, Cal State Fullerton’s Spencer Oborn and Rice’s Mario Ramos also were finalists for the Howser Trophy, named for the former Florida State infielder and Kansas City Royals manager. Phillips also was named first team All-American by the NCBWA as well as being a member of the 1999 NCBWA Super All-American squad. In addition to the NCBWA honors, Phillips was named first team AllAmerican by College Baseball Insider and was a third team All-America selection by Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball and the American Baseball Coaches Association. The Demopolis, Ala., native wrapped up his Alabama career as the school record-holder in eight career statistical categories, including most games played (244), games started (224), at-bats (905), runs scored (222), total hits (322), home runs (61), RBI (224) and total bases (590). He also ranked second in career doubles (63) and triples (11), and was third in assists (537) and 10th in walks (86). As a senior in 1999, Phillips set the standard of excellence for Crimson Tide baseball. He played in 64 games and batted .398 (103-for-259) with 22 home runs and 66 RBI. He added 71 runs scored, 22 doubles, 30 walks and 16 stolen bases for an Alabama team that captured the SEC Tournament Championship and finished third at the College World Series. Phillips also set Alabama single-season records for total bases (203) and set records for most home runs (22) and RBI (66) by a shortstop at Alabama. The former Tide shortstop also set the SEC record with a 36-game hitting streak during his final season at Alabama, breaking the old standard of 33 games set by LSU second baseman Todd Walker (1993). During his record-setting hitting streak, Phillips batted .407 (66-for-162) with 17 home runs and 45 RBI. In 1998, Phillips was named the Sporting News National Player of the Week (April 1, 1998), after hitting .500 (8-of-16) with six runs scored, three home runs and 11 RBI in wins over Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State. Phillips was just as successful off the field, earning his degree from Alabama in 1999, while being an active member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is an accomplished singer. Twice during his career, Phillips sang the National Anthem prior to a Crimson Tide home game at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. A three-time All-SEC selection, Phillips also was named to the 1999 SEC Good Works Team for his many hours of community service. Following an 11-year professional baseball career, which included five seasons in Major League Baseball, Phillips returned to Alabama as the hitting and infield coach, beginning with the 2011 season. His MLB debut came in 2004 for the New York Yankees and he homered on the first pitch he saw as a Major League player. Phillips played for the Yankees from 2004-07, before playing his final season in the majors with the Cincinnati Reds in 2008. Prior to returning to Alabama, he played two seasons in the Nippon Professional League in Japan.

Honors and Awards 2002 JOHNNY BENCH AWARD - JEREMY BROWN

RECORDS & HISTORY

The most decorated catcher in University of Alabama baseball history, Jeremy Brown was named the winner of the 2002 Johnny Bench Award, presented annually by the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission to the nation’s best catcher. “The Greater Wichita Sports Commission would like to congratulate all of the award finalists and especially Jeremy Brown, the 2002 Johnny Bench National Collegiate Catcher of the Year,” Bob Hanson, President and CEO of the Greater Wichita Sports Commission, said. “Jeremy represents the University of Alabama in a remarkable manner.” Brown edged out Southern California junior Alberto Concepcion and University of Houston junior Chris Snyder to win the 2002 award. Brown said upon receiving the 2002 Johnny Bench Award. “I’d like to thank my family and my coaches for all of their support over the past four years. It’s truly an honor to receive this award from the best catcher of all time, Mr. Johnny Bench.” It is the highest honor awarded to an Alabama baseball player since David Magadan earned the 1983 Golden Spikes Award, presented annually to the best player in college baseball. The Golden Spikes award is the baseball equivalent to college football’s Heisman Trophy award. Bench, a native of Oklahoma City, and Major League Baseball Hall of Famer, was on hand to present the award to Brown. Bench was the starting catcher for the Cincinnati Reds back-to-back World Series championship teams in 1975 and 1976. Former Los Angeles Dodger first baseman Steve Garvey delivered the keynote address to more than 350 people in attendance at the Grand Eagle Ballroom at the downtown Wichita Hyatt Regency hotel. The banquet recognizes the achievements and dedication of local youth, high school, college and professional coaches in the Wichita area. Alabama head coach Jim Wells was also in attendance to see his All-American catcher receive the award, symbolizing the best college catcher in the nation. A two-year starter behind the plate for Alabama, Brown was a runner up to Baylor’s Kelly Shoppach in the 2001 Johnny Bench Award voting. Brown is one of four Southeastern Conference catchers to win the Johnny Bench Award, joining LSU’s Brad Cresse, who won the inaugural award in 2000, Mississippi State’s Ed Easley in 2007, and Florida’s Mike Zunino in 2012. A native of Hueytown, Ala., Brown appeared in 66 games for Alabama as a senior and hit a .320 average (70-for-219) with 11 home runs and 64 RBI. He also set the Alabama single-season record with 69 walks, surpassing the previous total of 66 walks held by Bret Elbin in 1983. Brown made only one error for Alabama in his final 119 games at the Capstone. He set the Tide single-season record with a 1.000 fielding percentage in 2001 and made only one error in 2002. Brown was second in the SEC with seven pickoffs and ranked among the league leaders by throwing out 43 percent of his attempted base stealers. A first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics, Brown concluded his career at Alabama as the all-time leader for games played (251), games started (251), runs scored (244), walks (207) and putouts (1,660). He still remains as the only player in SEC history to collect 300 career hits (307) and 200 career walks (207). Named a 2002 second team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, Brown also was a first team All-SEC pick for the second consecutive year. He was also chosen as the District III Player of the Year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and was a finalist for the 2002 Dick Howser Trophy, presented by the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Verizon.

Honors and Awards Beau Hearod went where few University of Alabama players had gone before. The slugger from Jennings, La., had a phenomenal 2003 season and in the process led the Southeastern Conference in both home runs (20) and RBI (82) in his final campaign with the Crimson Tide. A first team All-SEC selection, Hearod became the first Alabama player to lead the SEC in home runs since Doug Duke smacked a leagueleading 27 four-baggers as a junior in 1986. Hearod became the fourth player in school history to lead the league in home runs, joining Stan Moss (7, 1968), Butch Hobson (13, 1973) and Duke as the league’s home run champ. Hearod also was the first Crimson Tide slugger to lead the league in RBI since Duke’s league-best 82 in 1986. After putting up those staggering numbers during the rugged 62game season, which included 34 games against SEC teams, Hearod was tabbed as the District III Player of the Year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, marking the second consecutive year and the third time since the inception of the award in 1999 that an Alabama player has been bestowed the top in District III. Former Alabama catcher Jeremy Brown, a first round draft selection by the Oakland Athletics in 2002 and the 2002 Johnny Bench award winner, was named the 2002 District III Player of the Year following an outstanding senior season. Andy Phillips, the school’s all-time home run leader, won the inaugural District III Player of the Year award in 1999 and was one of the three finalists for the prestigious Dick Howser Trophy, presented to the NCBWA Player of the Year. Other 2003 district winners included Boston College pitcher Chris Lambert (District I), St. John’s outfielder Mike Rozema (District II), South Carolina lefty David Marchbanks (District IV), Ohio State pitcher Scott Lewis (District V), Nebraska first baseman Matt Hooper (District VI), Tulane first baseman and left hand pitcher Michael Aubrey (District VII) Southern University shortstop Rickie Weeks (District VII), New Mexico first baseman Billy Belcher (District VIII) and Arizona State shortstop Dustin Pedroia (District IX). From the ranks of these 10 District winners, Southern University’s Rickie Weeks was named the winner of the 2003 Dick Howser Trophy. As a senior, Hearod started all 62 games and batted .346 (80for-231) with 20 home runs and 82 RBI. He was also named the Most Valuable Player of the 2003 SEC Tournament at the Hoover Met, leading the Crimson Tide to its second straight postseason title and sixth under coach Jim Wells. Hearod ranked ninth nationally in home runs (20) and 17th nationally with 0.32 home runs per game. He was sixth in total RBI and ninth with 1.32 RBI per game. He also led the SEC and ranked 27th nationally with a whopping .719 slugging percentage. In his three-year career with Alabama, Hearod played in 177 games and batted .327 (210-for-643) with 40 home runs and 191 RBI. He also totaled 141 runs scored, 43 doubles, five triples, 61 walks and a .595 career slugging mark. He wrapped up his Alabama career with five grand slams, one shy of the school, SEC and NCAA record set by the Tide’s Mike Pitisci in 1984.

Wade LeBlanc had a freshman season like no other in the 111-year history of the University of Alabama baseball program. The talented freshman left-hander racked up just about every postseason award available as he became the first rookie in Crimson Tide baseball history to earn National and SEC Freshman of the Year honors. LeBlanc was tabbed the 2004 National Freshman of the Year by Collegiate Baseball newspaper after being named the 2004 SEC Freshman of the Year at the conclusion of the regular season. LeBlanc’s turning point in the season was the back-to-back wins against No. 6 LSU and No. 10 Florida in early May. He beat LSU 8-2 on May 1 in Baton Rouge and then shut out the high-powered Gators in Tuscaloosa on May 7, allowing only four hits and striking out nine batters. “I guess the LSU and Florida games back-to-back really told me what kind of season I was having,” LeBlanc said. “This whole season was crazy, I never thought I would have a year like this and be named National and SEC Freshman of the Year. This is a great honor.” LeBlanc finished his outstanding freshman season by setting Alabama freshman records for innings pitched (112.2), strikeouts (98) and complete games (8) while tying the Alabama freshman record with eight wins. In 16 games, including 15 starts, LeBlanc posted an 8-4 record and 2.08 ERA. He worked 112.2 innings and allowed 87 hits, 37 runs and 26 earned runs, with 26 walks and 98 strikeouts. LeBlanc also threw eight complete games and pitched three shutouts in 2004. In addition to his freshman records, LeBlanc also ranks among the school’s top 10 single-season leaders in several categories. His eight complete games tied Gene Lary (1955) for second place on the school’s single-season list. The three shutouts matched Mike Innes (1968) and Drew Blocker (1974) for third-place on the single-season shutout charts. LeBlanc’s 112.2 innings pitched tied Dean Hayes (1983) for seventh place on the single-season innings while the 98 strikeouts tied Jarrod Kingrey (1998) and Steve Shoemaker (1994) for 10th place. LeBlanc was tabbed a third team All-American by both the National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association (NCBWA) and Baseball America. He was the only freshman named to the 2004 Baseball America AllAmerica team. LeBlanc also was named to the 2004 SEC All-Freshman team and was a second team All-SEC selection as voted by the league’s 12 head coaches. SEBaseball.com tabbed also tabbed him as the 2004 SEC Freshman of the Year as well as a first team All-SEC selection. He also was selected to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) All-South Region team. LeBlanc was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the second round of the 2006 MLB Amateur Draft. He made his Major League debut on Sept. 8, 2008 for the Padres. Through the 2011 season, LeBlanc had appeared in 54 games, 52 as a starter, with a 17-22 overall record in four years with the Padres. He spent the 2012 season in the Miami Marlins organization. After starting the year in triple-A, LeBlanc made 25 appearances with nine Major League starts. He was 2-5 with a 3.67 ERA in his first season with the Marlins. For his MLB career, LeBlanc is 19-27 with a 4.38 ERA in 362 innings pitched, making 79 appearances with 61 starts while striking out 248 batters. In 2013, LeBlanc started the season in the big leagues where he appeared in 13 games with seven starts for the Miami Marlins. He was then picked up on waivers by Houston, where he made four relief appearances for the Astros. In the off season, LeBlanc signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Angels.

RECORDS & HISTORY

Alabama right Àelder Kent Matthes wrapped up a remarkable senior season by winning Southeastern Conference Player of the Year honors and being tabbed a consensus All-American. Matthes is the Àrst Alabama player to win SEC Player of the Year honors since the league began presenting the award in 1993. “Kent Matthes had a great year and deserves this honor,” former Alabama head coach Jim Wells said. “It has been great to sit in the dugout and watch him do the things he has done this year. He has had a great year and put up some incredible numbers. You read sometimes about guys having years like this, but he usually isn’t on your team. This year we have that player and it has been fun watching him on and off the Àeld.” Matthes was also named Àrst team All-American by every baseball publication, including the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), Rivals and PING. “It is a great honor to be recognized by the best college baseball league with all the talented players we have in the SEC,” Matthes said. “It is an honor to be named SEC Player of the Year and to be able to accomplish the feat as a senior. This has been an incredible season and I am happy to be a part of this team.” “I was looking to take advantage of my senior year and make the most of it,” said Matthes. “I worked hard in the off-season with Dax (Norris), got hot early, hit a lot of home runs and they kept coming. I tried to stay focused on winning each game and not the stats.” The senior was named the 2009 NCBWA District III Player of the Year, was a Ànalist for the Golden Spikes Award, a semiÀnalist for the Dick Howser Trophy and a member of the ABCA All-South Region team. The Orlando native hit .358 with 28 home runs and 81 RBI for the Crimson Tide. He led the SEC in home runs, RBI, total bases (174) and slugging percentage (.883). He was also third in runs scored (65) and sixth in hitting. Matthes set the Alabama single-season record with 28 home runs, which tied for the national home run lead with Middle Tennessee State’s Bryce Brentz. Matthes is the Àfth NCAA statistical national champion in school history. He broke the Alabama single-season home run record with his 28th home run against South Carolina on May 20 at the SEC Tournament. He slugged his 27th home run of the season in the Tide’s regular season Ànale at Auburn on May 16 to tie Doug Duke’s record set in 1986. The 2009 home run barrage from Matthes included four multihome run games and one walk-off home run while 16 of his 28 home runs tied the game or gave Alabama the lead (10 go-ahead home runs). He also had nine game-winning RBI in 2009. Matthes also set the Alabama record with a home run in six straight games and twice was named National and SEC Player of the Week. He hit for the cycle on Feb. 24 against Nicholls State and followed with a walkoff 10th inning home run the next day. Drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round of the 2009 MLB Amateur Draft, Matthes was named the 2011 California League’s Most Valuable Player for the class A Modesto Nuts after an outstanding season at the plate. He Ànished the 2011 season with a .334 average, 23 home runs, 39 doubles and 95 RBI. Matthes spent the 2012 season in double-A, playing for the Tulsa Drillers where he hit .214 with 17 home runs, 18 doubles and 40 RBI. In 2013, Matthes opened the year in Tulsa, before being called up to Triple-A Colorado Springs for the Ànal 47 games of the season. With the Triple-A Sky Sox, Matthes hit .297 wiuth 11 home runs and 31 RBI.
