uilt in 1978, Bush Stadium has been the home of Tennessee Tech baseball for over 40 years. The Golden Eagles moved into the stadium at the start of the 1978 season, and won the first game ever played there, a 7-6 win over Eastern Kentucky. But Bush Stadium hasn’t always looked the way it does today. Over the past 15 years the facility has seen tremendous upgrades. In 1995 Bush Stadium saw the addition of its 3,240 square-foot clubhouse. Among the features of the clubhouse are player and coaches’ locker rooms, coaches’ offices, team weight room and a team lounge area. In 1997 lights were added to the facility and the Golden Eagles played their first night game at home on March 25, 1997, a 9-6 loss to Tennessee. At the time, Tech was only the fourth school in

the Ohio Valley Conference to have a lit baseball field. The facility was dedicated as “Bush Stadium” in 1997 in honor of Howell W. Bush, who donated the funds needed to bring lights to the facility. The next addition to the facility came only a year later, in 1998, when a new press box was added to the top of the stands at Bush Stadium. The 460 square foot press box features three separate rooms to house game management, home and visiting media. In 2000 the team added a batting cage to the facility. The cage is inside a 3,600 square foot covered building adjacent to the clubhouse. With all the additions over the years, Bush Stadium has transformed into a first-class baseball facility, and is truly a home field advantage to Tech baseball players.

2010 Season Review

PITCHING

An elite pitching staff has been a key component for OVC championships at Tennessee Tech – with last year’s starting right-hander Lee Henry being honored as the Ohio Valley Conference’s 2010 Pitcher of the Year – and this year promises to be no different. Head coach Matt Bragga has rounded out his staff with the addition of pitching coach Donnie Suttles to help mold a talented group of returning and new Golden Eagle hurlers through the 2011 season. One weekend rotation starter will be back for the Golden Eagles in sophomore Tristan Archer. ¬¬¬ He was drafted out of high school by the Oakland A’s, but opted rather to come to Tech, where he debuted as a conference starter as a freshman. Archer pitched 49 innings for Tech last season, primarily in the weekend rotation three-spot. He notched 33 strikeouts for Tech, accumulating a 3-2 record and only allowing 23 of 81 hits for extra bases. Another sophomore will join Archer on the mound for weekend series’, as Nick Price – a righty with the potential to throw at speeds upwards of 93 miles per hour. Primarily a reliever as a freshman, Price pitched 40 innings for the Golden Eagles and racked up 32 strikeouts. His top performance, however, came in one of his four starts, at the Ohio Valley Tournament in a 15-6 victory over Murray State. Price tossed for six innings, allowing only three hits, two walks and one run on a longball. His efforts dropped his ERA .69 points to cap off his season at 5.40. Also returning to potentially fill a weekend spot is junior Matt Shepherd, a talented junior who’s ability to throw three different pitches for strikes will translate into the potential for him to be

drafted after his junior season. Shepherd made eight starts in 15 appearances last season, and struck out 38 in 45 innings pitched. A junior college transfer in Cullen Park, who had a tremendous fall with the Golden Eagles, will give Tech some depth as either a weekend or mid-week starter and be a big game situational player. Additionally, redshirt senior Jared Dobbs is back for Tech after two years on the bench with injuries. A conference starter for his first two years, Dobbs is also capable of playing a mid-week or weekend role. Seniors Chad Oberacker and Wade Bilbrey, with their power arms and offspeed pitches, are back as veteran closers for the Golden Eagles. Bilbrey is a righty with an off-speed change-up and a fastball that hovers between 88 and 90 miles per hour, while Oberacker is a southpaw who pitches between 87 and 89. Juniors Chad Hayes and Ben Burgess, who both primarily play other positions, have proven they can win games on the mound as well. Hayes pitched a complete-game two-hit shutout mid-season in 2009, while Burgess got his first collegiate win in the 2009 OVC tournament, which sent Tech to the OVC championship game. Bragga has also brought in five new faces that have the potential to be a presence on the mound. Southpaw Jake McWhirter and right-handers Garret Baugh and Justin Alexander, along with Andy Williams and Brandon Wright, are all freshmen who will be capable of contributing as relievers for the Tech staff.

CATCHERS

Ben Burgess will return as Tech’s primary catcher for his junior season. A member of the OVC All-Tournament

Team two years running), Burgess started 49 games for Tech last season, mainly behind the dish, and led the team with 392 put outs. A major contributor on the offensive front as well, Burgess hit fifth in the order last season, finishing with a batting average of .293 on the season after getting hits in five of the final six games of the season. One of his best efforts came against Jacksonville State, when Burgess went 4-for-5 with four RBI’s. Sophomore Evan Frazier brings a great deal of experience behind the plate as well. He gives Tech another strong defensive catcher and offensive threat with plus power to all fields.

INFIELD

With technically four returning starters in Devin Rivers, Frankie Beech, Chad Hayes and Zephan Guyear, the Golden Eagle infield will be all but inexperienced. Despite the loss of first-baseman Tate McMillan and his reliever, AJ Kirby-Jones, Guyear and Rivers split time at third base during the 2010 season when Rivers was out with a mid-season injury. Rivers (3B), Hayes (SS) and Guyear, who will likely fill the open first base position, all batted over .300 last season, while Beech followed up with a .270. Rivers, a senior this year, was a junior college transfer last season, and started 24 of his 25 appearances, hitting at a .358 clip with a slugging percentage of .568 and an on base percentage of .476. He logged 18 RBI’s and recorded 29 hits in 81 at-bats, despite a mid-season injury that left him on the sidelines for about six weeks. Guyear filled the role, and started 31 games in 43 overall appearances, batting for a .320 average. He had 11 extra base hits and contributed 28 RBI on the season. Hayes finished the season batting .315, starting in 55 of 56 games for Tech and notching the second-most at-bats on the team with 222. He had 70 hits and 39 runs batted in on the season. Junior college transfer Frankie Beech returns for his senior season after starting 48 games last season, having had quite the impact at second base during his TTU debut, with a consistent bat and the ability to turn two. Sophomore Mike Morris, an outstanding athlete with a powerful arm and strong left-handed bat, and senior captain and veteran Trice Powers add to the depth and potency of this veteran group. Furthermore, newcomer Zach Stephens is going to be an impact player for Tech and will fill roles as both a designated hitter and first baseman.

OUTFIELD

With the entire starting outfield from last year returning, Tech promises to have once again one of the toughest

Bush Stadium at the Averitt Express Baseball Complex. Among the visitors will be series with Eastern Michigan, Ohio, Youngstown State and Purdue. Among Tech’s 30 home contests are four OVC weekend series against Jacksonville State, Southeast Missouri, Eastern Kentucky and UT Martin. The Golden Eagles face conference road series at Eastern Illinois, Morehead State, Austin Peay and Murray State. Tech opens OVC play with Jacksonville State, which finished second behind Tech in the regular season and won the league tournament. The non-conference schedule includes several of Tech’s traditional rivals including East Tennessee, Belmont, MTSU and Lipscomb. Another foe that is becoming familiar is Vanderbilt, which is ranked fifth in preseason polls. Tech visits the Commodores on Tuesday, March 22. Tech also visits Kentucky a week later on Tuesday, March 29. Perhaps the most popular visitor to Cookeville will be the Tennessee Vols, who play in Bush Stadium on Wednesday, April 27, with first pitch slated for 6 p.m. The OVC Tournament, which will be held in Pringles Stadium in Jackson, Tenn., is scheduled for May 25-29 for the teams that finish in the top six places in the standings.

Players in the Pros

A 30-game home schedule that includes some real highlight attractions, a season-opening tournament in Myrtle Beach, and a chance to defend their Ohio Valley Conference regular season championship are just some of the features of Tennessee Tech’s 56-game baseball

schedule for 2011. Tech enjoys an early stretch in which the Golden Eagles play 15 of 18 games at home, including visits from Middle Tennessee, Purdue, East Tennessee and Ohio. Tech also welcomes traditional rivals Belmont, Lipscomb and Tennessee to Bush Stadium. On the road, the Golden Eagles will challenge the likes of Virginia Tech, Coastal Carolina, Boston College, UNC Charlotte, Lipscomb, Belmont, Kentucky and Vanderbilt. Once OVC play begins, the Golden Eagles hosts four weekend series and hit the road for four weekends. Tech takes on teams from the ACC, SEC, Sun Belt, MAC, A-Sun, Horizon, Big South, SWAC, Atlantic 10 and Big 10 conferences. The Golden Eagles get the 2011 season underway in Myrtle Beach, Feb. 19-20, at a tournament hosted by Coastal Carolina University. Tech opens with a pair of teams that finished last year ranked in the Top 20 and advanced to NCAA tournament play. The schedule begins on Saturday, Feb. 19 against Virginia Tech, which was ranked 20th and played in the NCAA Regionals. That game is followed by a contest against host Coastal Carolina, a team that was ranked 12th and reached the NCAA Super Regionals, and finished with the best record in the nation at 5510. The opening weekend finishes with a game on Sunday, Feb. 20, against ACC member Boston College. Following the opening weekend, Tech plays 15 of the next 18 games in

outfields in the conference to penetrate. Sophomore Austin Wulf (left field) and seniors Chad Oberacker (center field) and Casanova Donaldson (right field) are well known throughout the OVC for their speed, athleticism and tendencies to go above and beyond in the outfield. All three will also contribute offensively, hitting in the top to middle of the order. Sophomore Zephan Guyear also has the potential to provide relief in the outfield when he’s not flashing the leather on the dirt, and Tevis Sherfield will also back up the starting line in the outfield as a smart fielder with a promising bat. Redshirt sophomore Will Thomas also has a strong arm and great bat speed, giving him the ability to play a role on the grass as well. Tech also brought in four additional freshmen to provide depth in the field and in the lineup. David Allen, Trey McCalla, Zach Stephens and Zach Flynn are all first-year players who promise to be great offensive threats, while Bo DelGaicco is another freshman who can be utilized as both a power hitter and a power hitter. Flynn is an outstanding freshman outfielder who has a chance to be a contributor right away. He can really defend with a plus arm and a plus bat.

HEAD COACH

MATT BRAGGA

After coaching the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles to their third straight 30-win season - a feat that has never before been accomplished in Tech program history - and subsequently being named the 2010 OVC Coach of the Year, head coach Matt Bragga’s seventh season in Cookeville can only be labeled as one of his most successful. Under Bragga’s direction, the Golden Eagles capped off their 2010 season with a 31-25 overall record, finishing 14-6 in regular season conference play to clinch the No. 1 seed headed into post season play for the first time since 1997. The team went 2-2 in the OVC Tournament to claim the runner-up spot in Jackson to finish out their post-season. The team had five named to the OVC All-Tournament Team in AJ Kirby-Jones, Chad Oberacker, Frankie Beech, Ben Burgess and Lee Henry. Henry was also named the 2010 OVC Pitcher of the Year. The team also collected the OVC Sportsmanship Award, given to the team that outwardly upholds the principles and sportsmanship guidelines outlined by the Ohio Valley Conference. The award-winners are voted upon by head coaches and sports information directors from around the league. Oberacker and Kirby-Jones combined to be named to nine All-American teams between the two of them, marking 2010 as the first year (and first decade) in history that Tech’s baseball program has put out more than one player who was named to an All-American team, and the first time that a single player was named to multiple teams. The pair, also named TTU’s Co-Male Athlete’s of the Year, were also joined by two of their teammates in Adam Liberatore and Stephen Pryor as prospective professional ball-players after being drafted in the top 25 rounds of

the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft. In 2009, the Golden Eagles then went on to the NCAA regional in Clemson, S.C., where they eliminated No. 14 Alabama before being eliminated by eventual regional-champion Clemson. The Golden Eagles had two all-conference team members, six all-tournament team members, and the OVC tournament MVP in A.J. Kirby-Jones. The veteran coach continues his work toward redefining the program with high ideals and even greater expectations.

2010 Season in Review

T

he finale of the 2010 season marked another dominant season for the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles, as the team finished in first place after an exciting year of regular season play and collected a multitude of honors and accolades, both collectively and on behalf of individual players. Picked third in 2010 preseason OVC poll, Tech put together a 14-6 conference record, which included a streak of 11 straight conference victories, culminating in a sweep of then-first place Racers of Murray State in Bush Stadium, where the Golden Eagle team batted a combined .371 against the Racers on the series, going 39 for 105 with an outstanding 11 home runs over three games. Six different Golden Eagles homered in the series finale, an 11-1 victory that secured the 2010 OVC Championship and No. 1 seed for the OVC Tournament for Tech. It was a victory that marked the seventh regular season title for the Golden Eagles and first since 1997 (when they were co-champions). It was the first outright, non-divisional title for the program since 1956. The Golden Eagles went on to complete the season sweep of the Racers with a 15-6 win in game three of the OVC Tournament in Jackson, Tenn. Overall, Tennessee Tech won 14 of its final 15 OVC games during the season. Including post-season play, the team finished with a record of 31-25 and the program recorded its third-straight 30-win season, something that has never happened in program history. Tennessee Tech senior

Lee Henry was the 2010 Ohio Valley Conference Pitcher of the Year and skipper Matt Bragga was voted the league’s Coach of the Year, two of the top honors announced following the 2010 regular season, as voted upon by league head coaches and sports information directors. Henry was also one of five Golden Eagle players included on the all-OVC teams. He was a first-team selection along with designated hitter A.J. Kirby-Jones and outfielder/ pitcher Chad Oberacker. Tristan Archer and Austin Wulf were named to the OVC All-Freshman team. In helping Tennessee Tech to its seventh OVC regular season championship, Henry was dominant on the mound, leading the OVC in ERA (2.77, 0.59 points better than second place), opponent batting average (.220) and shutouts (1), while ranking second in strikeouts per nine innings (9.61) and complete games (3). In 14 total appearances (11 starts), Henry compiled a 6-3 record and struck out 73 batters while only issuing 33 walks. His best game of the season came against Eastern Illinois,

when he tossed a three-hit, seveninning shutout. In that game he struck out nine and was named OVC Pitcher of the Week for his performance. Over his last five games of the regular season, Henry was 5-0 with a 2.47 E.R.A. with each of those games coming against OVC foes. During that stretch of 32.2 innings, he allowed nine earned runs and struck out 36 batters. Henry is the second Tech pitcher to be named OVC Pitcher of the Year since the award was first handed out in 1992 (Mark Maberry in 1997 was the other). The baseball highway didn’t end for Henry with the conclusion of his supremely successful 2010 season at Tech though. The senior out of Knoxville, Tenn. has since signed with the Pensacola Pelicans of the American Association, one of the elite pro-ball leagues in the country. Now in his seventh season at Tennessee Tech, Bragga becomes just the second Tennessee Tech skipper to be named OVC Coach of the Year. He joins legendary coach David Mays who took home the honor five times during his career, with the last honor coming in 1997 (Mays will fittingly be inducted into the OVC Hall of Fame this June). The team also collectively earned the OVC Sportsmanship Award for the first time since the inception of the award in August of 2005. Voted on by the student-athletes and coaches of the respective sports, the team awards are bestowed upon the Conference squads deemed to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical behavior as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. Included in the areas for evaluation are the conduct of student-athletes, coaches, staff and administrators and fans. Juniors Chad Oberacker and AJ Kirby-Jones also combined for nine All-America teams for Tech, a

He held his opponents to a .318 batting average over the course of his career and struck out 155 total batters, 74 alone in the 2010 season.

feat in and of itself in that the program had not seen more than one All-American in a single decade, let alone in a single year. Couple that with the fact that both players were named to multiple teams, and the accomplishment is even more noteworthy. The pair was named to a variety of first, second and third teams by Ping! Baseball, the American Baseball Coaches Association, the Pro-Line National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association, Baseball America and Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball News. Only seven teams in the nation were able to boast multiple first and/or second team ABCA All-Americans for the 2010 season. The other six programs were ranked within the top ten in the NCAA. Tech’s two honorees places TTU amongst the ranks of no.1 Virginia, no. 2 Arizona State, no. 3 Texas, no. 6 TCU, no. 7 Cal State-Fullerton and no. 9 Louisville. Oberacker led the OVC and ranked in the top five nationally in batting average (.455) while registering 101 hits, 28 doubles (which also ranked in the top five nationally), 65 RBI and 14 stolen bases. Kirby-Jones appeared on the All-OVC first-team for the first time in his career (after being an All-Freshman selection two years ago and a second-team pick last season). Kirby-Jones smashed 26 home runs during the season while also drawing 55 walks (a mark that was second nationally). “AJKJ” hit .378 with 71 hits, 58 runs, 16 doubles and 66 RBI. The two standouts - who were named Tennessee Tech’s Co-Male Athlete’s of the Year - were also joined by two of their teammates in another category, as Kirby-Jones, Oberacker, junior Stephen Pryor and senior Adam Liberatore were selected in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.

Players in the Pros

Since 1975, Tennessee Tech pitchers have recorded six no-hit games, five one-hitters and 34 two-hitters. In addition to the no-hitters listed below, Kevin Kalen also pitched a no-hitter against Edinborough College. Tech won 23-0 in a game called after three innings, so Kalen’s third “gem” is not listed with the official no-hitters below.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech student-athlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 150 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past seven semesters. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new stu- Marilyn Borch-Jensen dents. Academic Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they Advisement can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete Secretary with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow Tech student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso.trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core.

Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense

Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power.

Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, therefore making it harder to “fold” under pressure.

Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism.

Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting The following are recommendations for athletes Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using concerning days and times of strength trainig many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training (including warmups): should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout having body weight supported by a machine and forcing * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground* Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills.

Heading into his 29th year on the Tennessee Tech athletics staff, Rob Schabert is assistant athletics director for sports information and broadcasting. He joined the Tech staff on Sept. 8, 1982, and has been going full-speed ever since, working not only in publicizing Tech's student-athletes and staff but also in promotions and marketing for the athletics department. In September 2008 he was inducted into the Hall of Distinction at Minnesota State University (Mankato). An active member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), he has attended the organization's annual workshop in 29 of his 33 years in the profession. He has served on numerous CoSIDA committees, including Ethics, Academic All-America and Writing, and he currently serves on the Olympic Liaison Committee. In 2004, he was voted winner of the university's Outstanding Professional Award, and in July 2005 was promoted to his current title. A tireless worker, Schabert has won dozens of national publications and writing awards, including "Best in the Nation" from USA Volleyball for his annual media guide six times. Schabert, 54, has established several programs within the department. He created the Athletic Director's Honor Roll in 1987 and initiated the President's Awards program in 1991. He also established the Woman of the Year/Man of the Year awards along with the Outstanding Male and Female Athlete awards. He is active in the TTU Sports Hall of Fame selection process and serves as the emcee of the annual Hall of Fame Dinner. Schabert has promoted the selection of numerous Tech Academic All-Americans and is extremely active in promoting both the academic and athletic accomplishments of Tech's student-athletes. Another wing of his operation is the day-to-day production and operations of the vast Tech athletics web site, TTUsports.com. Rob and his staff also serve as the hosts to all media attending athletics events on campus. Over the past several years, many of the interns who have worked for Schabert have moved into full-time positions in the Sports Information profession at a wide variety of colleges and universities, including Appalachian State, UAB, Xavier, Idaho and Texas State. A Minnesota native who learned the trade under the guidance of his father, Bob (a long-time Minnesota Sportswriter), Rob earned his bachelor's degree in mass communications from St. Cloud (Minn.) State University in 1977, spent one year in the Minnesota Twins public relations office, and was SID for five years at Mankato State University.
