For Thomas Hatch, everything is quiet. The Friday night crowd at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium cheers. Oklahoma State infielders root for him from their positions. Coach Josh Holliday issues instructions from the dugout. Hatch hears none of it. This is not selective. It is necessary. His focus is solely on the baseball in his right hand and the leather catcher’s mitt about 61 feet in front of him. The next pitch is what matters. There is no pain, no fears, no thoughts. “They’re all external distractions, something you don’t need to be focused on,” he said. “It’s hard enough to pitch. With distractions, it’s even harder.” On the mound, Hatch finds peace. His opponents do not. To the batters facing him, to anyone who doesn’t know him, Hatch is a mystery. “Unless you know Thomas, you’re not going to get inside of his shell,” teammate Blake Battenfield said. With a quiet confidence, Hatch comes set. Silence surrounds him as the sizable crowd sounds like a family gathering and trash talk dims to a whisper. Each pitch is a gift, he has learned. That is what happens when the FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2016

devin wilber/O’COLLY Thomas Hatch, an Oklahoma State pitcher, experienced pain in his right elbow the summer after his freshman year. In his return from a partially torn UCL, Hatch has a 1.98 ERA as OSU’s Friday night starter.

game you love is taken away for 15 months. *** He woke up to soreness in his right elbow. The day before, July 6, 2014, Hatch threw three innings for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod League. He was disappointed. Having allowed only one hit, he wanted to pitch longer. It was the last time Hatch pitched in a game for a year. He didn’t throw for a week, but the dull pain didn’t fade. Hatch returned home to Tulsa from Massachusetts, bringing a sudden end to the summer baseball season after his freshman year. For the next month, Hatch took anti-inflammatory medication and was on a strict throwing program in an effort to heal. All the while, he didn’t know what was hurting him. He received his first MRI, then spent another month on anti-

inflammatories. As Hatch approached winter break of his sophomore year, the pain remained a mystery. He visited a handful of doctors, and they all passed on the same messages. “Nothing’s wrong.” “You’ve got to throw through the pain.” “Maybe it’ll go away.” But Hatch knew. He had thrown a baseball as long as he had pursued an education. He could tell something was wrong. Hatch lost baseball physically. He fought for it mentally. OSU pitching coach Rob Walton, a maestro of the arms and minds of pitchers, never experienced pain in his elbow during his playing career, he said. His shoulder devoured his career, however, as struggles with his right rotator cuff forced him to retire at 25. He worked with Hatch psychoOCOLLY.COM

logically, continual conversations confirming to Hatch his efforts to return were worthwhile. Walton, a former OSU pitcher, was injured during his time as a Cowboy, but he came back stronger. He told Hatch he could do the same. “Your mind can wander in places it doesn’t need to wander,” Walton said. “‘Am I gonna be able to pitch again?’ You’ve got all kind of negative thoughts that can creep into your mind. Thomas, the way he talked about it is, things happen for a reason, and it was hard for me to understand those things, even in my own career.” Hatch traveled to Pensacola, Florida, to meet with Dr. James Andrews, a renowned orthopedic surgeon known primarily for repairing ligament injuries in athletes. Hatch had visited about five

other physicians and radiologists, but in about five minutes, Andrews diagnosed Hatch with a Grade 2 sprain, or a partial tear, of his right ulnar collateral ligament, the ligament requiring Tommy John surgery when completely torn. Although surgery wasn’t needed, the source of his physical pain had been identified, but the diagnosis left him with cause for mental anguish. His passion was taken away. *** Holliday told Hatch he would call back in 15 minutes. They were discussing the possibility of Hatch, a senior at Jenks High School, coming to Vanderbilt, where Holliday was an assistant coach. Something came up, though, and Holliday had to go. As promised, he called Hatch 15 minutes later, having just been announced as the next baseball coach at OSU. Immediately, Holliday’s conversation with Hatch shifted to the Cowboys. For Hatch, it was almost unbelievable. He grew up an OSU fan. His father walked onto the baseball team. Two uncles and an aunt went to school in Stillwater. He spent several afternoons at Cowboy and Cowgirl sporting events. OSU was a second home. Hatch jumped at the opportunity to play in front of his family, despite offers STORY CONTINUES ON PAGE 3

from baseball powers North Carolina, TCU and LSU. Oklahoma’s No. 1 prospect and ESPN’s 30th overall, Hatch made his OSU debut in the Cowboys’ second game of the 2014 season a year later. He pitched six innings against Stephen F. Austin, striking out eight. It signified a strong start for Hatch, but soon, his innings faded as he suffered the common struggles and inconsistencies of a college freshman. “Baseball humbles you sometimes,” Hatch said. During the Big 12 tournament, a lack of arms because of the grind of the postseason forced Hatch back into a starting role. In the final start of his freshman year, he held Texas to one run in 4 1/3 innings in an OSU victory. Six days later, he pitched the ninth of the Cowboys’ opener of the Stillwater Regional against Binghamton. He didn’t pitch in another game at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium for 645 days. *** As the Cowboys began the 2015 season, Hatch was recovering from a platelet-rich plasma injection Andrews gave him into his elbow. The injection usually requires a three-month recovery, but within a month, Hatch felt comfortable enough to begin another throwing program. He was still sore and took two weeks off, but for the first time in eight months, he felt capable. The pain dulled. Throwing was possible. Health was in sight. Still, Hatch spent a spring without baseball. He felt disconnected. He felt out of rhythm. At times, he felt alienated. It wasn’t his teammates’ fault. “Guys last year were really good to me,” Hatch said. “Rob FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2016

helped me a lot mentally, but my teammates really helped me through it, too.” It was only Hatch’s natural reaction to his inability to contribute. Already quiet, Hatch sunk into himself. He rooted for his teammates to succeed, of course, but the vocal cheers were rare. His voice on the team seemed meaningless as he struggled to contribute with words, the same way he did on the mound. After the UCL sprain cost Hatch the 2015 season, he returned to Florida in the summer when Andrews gave him another PRP injection. This time, Hatch took the full three months to recover. He rested for a month and a half before beginning another throwing program. In the fall, he finally returned to the mound. “My stuff was as good as it’s ever been,” Hatch said. “Throughout that whole process, it was more just a mental grind than anything. You know you’re going to get back. It’s just the fact that I wasn’t diagnosed that was really the most disappointing, really than anything.” The injury, though, gave Hatch a changed perspective. When he returned from 15 lost months, each round of catch, each bullpen carried significance. Simplicities of the game he had taken for granted growing up meant much more. Without the ability to pitch in a game, Hatch spent most of his time out developing mentally rather than physically. He watched how the other pitchers on the Cowboys’ staff handled themselves emotionally, how they varied their times to home plate, how they decided which spots of the strike zone to attack. He became a student rather than a player. Walton compared it to an NFL quarterback who spends a year as a backup before taking over under center. Hatch became

more mentally prepared to take the mound. “You look at me freshman year, and I’ve made a lot of advancements in my head, really, and I think that’s the biggest part of my success, and it’s coming from my injury,” Hatch said. “I think I had the most development on the mental side.” Fifteen months lost, but a perspective gained. “I’m just happy anytime I get to pitch,” Hatch said. “I can’t take it for granted now.” *** Batters aren’t ready for the movement. A fastball in the mid-90s surges toward them, seemingly destined for the heart of the strike zone. They swing, expecting the ball to connect with the sweet spot of the bat and not reconnect with the ground for hundreds of feet. Instead, the ball dives at the last moment. The batters barely make contact, producing another quick out in Hatch’s pursuit of efficiency. The sinker is Hatch’s greatest weapon. As a freshman, his low90s fastball had a tendency to be straight, leaving little confusion for hitters. A drop in Hatch’s arm angle added velocity and movement to his fastball, creating a sinker few college teams have heading their rotation. Factor in a slider on the verge of dominance and a high-ceiling changeup in development, and Hatch’s repertoire features three pitches that limit hitters’ successful contact. “He shows the ability to mature and adapt with some adversity,” Holliday said. “It shows a guy that, once healthy, was able to work really hard and recapture kind of what it was that got him started in the right direction. “… Physically, he came to us a talented arm, but he’s now grown into being a talented pitcher.” OCOLLY.COM

kurt steiss/O’COLLY Thomas Hatch, far left, stands still during the national anthem before a game in early April. Hatch missed 15 months with a right UCL sprain.

Despite his tendency to be quiet, Hatch sets a tone. As OSU’s Friday night starter, he serves as the leadoff man of the Cowboys’ pitching staff. In three-game series this season, the Cowboys are 8-2 on Saturday and Sunday when they win on Friday. If they lose the opening game of the series, they are 1-5 in the next two. Hatch’s assertion has proved critical. “Thomas is just an absolute dog on the mound,” catcher Collin Theroux said. “The guy has strikeout stuff, but I don’t think he strikes out as many guys as he can because he’s so commanding of the strike zone. With a power sinker like his, guys are swinging at good pitches, but they’re not squaring them up because his ball’s moving so much that they just pound them into the ground.” *** Hatch is quiet, but his return has not been. Through nine starts, Hatch has a 1.98 ERA, averages more than six innings per start and allows less than one hit an inning. Each pitch has a greater mean-

ing. “It was a blessing in disguise,” Hatch said. “I came back stronger. I got to just sit back and watch the game for a year and just really appreciate what it’s like to be healthy.” Whatever anger, whatever pain he felt during his time off has transformed to power and control. His teammates have seen his frustrations become motivations. When he is pitching, he does not speak, and only those who don’t want to be heard speak to him. He is naturally reserved, capable of a laugh or a joke at an opportune moment, but not with a ball in his hand. Friday night, Hatch will quietly take the mound at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium, set to fire the first pitch of a pivotal series against TCU. The crowd will roar. The national anthem will play. The dugouts will chirp. For Hatch, though, it will be quiet. f o l l o w n at h a n : @ n at h a n s r u i z

OSU System Saves $35 Million with Energy Program CNG PROGRESS

Your mileage may vary, but you might want to take a few tips from Oklahoma State University to cut your energy bill. After all, the OSU System has slashed $35 million from its utility bill in the last nine years. OSU’s Energy Management Program, which started in 2007, uses a variety of innovative practices to lead the way in reducing energy consumption. In 2013, OSU added sustainability to its energy portfolio when the 26-turbine Cowboy Wind Farm near Blackwell began producing electricity. Now, on average, the OSU-Stillwater campus uses 70 percent wind power per year. “Since 2013, we have successfully and consistently met or exceeded our goal of using 67 percent wind power to power the Stillwater campus,” said James Rosner, OSU energy services director. OSU has also implemented several other energy conservation practices, including providing energy guidelines for faculty, staff and students. FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2016

With the focused efforts of the university, OSU has managed to save a total of more than $35 million across all campuses. The OSU-Stillwater campus averages a $3.5 million savings per year. “Ultimately, energy conservation equals saving money,” said Rosner. “The energy program helps every entity on campus because it helps reduce operating costs.” Energy management also tries to save money through it’s purchasing practices of electricity and natural gas. On average the Stillwater campus uses 652,155 DecaTherms of natural gas at a cost of about $3 million each year. Recently OSU energy services purchased 80% of the volume until the year 2020 in advance as natural gas prices fell to record lows. This locked in rate for natural gas is projected to save the university at least $520,000 each year. OSU’s energy savings also help the environment, a result noted by recognition for the third year in a row from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. For 2015,

OSU was ranked #7 in the Top 30 Colleges and Universities and #51 in the National Top 100 for renewable energy. OSU was one of four organizations — and the only educational institution — named a Green Power Partner of the Year in 2014. For more tips on saving energy, visit the OSU Energy Management Program website.

By 2014, virtually all of OSU’s bus fleet had transferred from diesel to cleaner burning compressed natural gas. The motor pool fleet had been positioned to do the same with plans to lease additional vehicles as they become more competitively available from manufacturers, and Regents approved the purchase of a CNG station on campus that same year, which also offers considerable cost-savings.

Oklahoma State University Facilities Reach $1 Million Cost Reduction

The green transport movement on campus started small in 2010, when OSU Transit initially purchased nine CNG buses, a number that quickly grew after the first natural gas fueling station was added in 2011, thanks to OSU’s partnership with Clean Energy.


For a second year, Oklahoma State University is acknowledging facilities which have reduced their cumulative building energy costs by $1 million. To recognize this accomplishment, facilities are awarded a “million dollar plaque”. The savings are reached through a team effort. Students, faculty and staff take part by doing such things as turning off lights and computers in addition to working closely with the OSU energy management team. While buildings with larger energy consumption generally accumulate the $1 million energy cost reduction more quickly than smaller buildings, every building has the ability by making small changes to impact energy conservation. Facilities that were recognized this year include: Willard, Edmon Low Library, Noble Research Center, Physical Sciences and Bennett Hall. The OSU-IT campus in Okmulgee was also recognized for reaching the million dollar mark in energy savings for the entire campus. THIS PAGE PRODUCED AND PAID FOR BY OSU COMMUNICATIONS AND MARKETING

‘New Slaves’ lets African-American students discuss issues

Jordan Bishop Staf f Rep orter

Sometimes, all it takes to help adapt to an unfamiliar world is talking it out with someone who shares the struggle. That’s what members of Oklahoma State’s chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha were trying to emote in its presentation of “New Slaves” on Thursday Night in Agricul-

ture Hall. “New Slaves” is one of OSU’s Alpha Week’s final events, which are brought about each year to provide a social atmosphere to discuss intellectually stimulating ideas about race. In the discussion, African-American students were asked questions of what it truly means to be black, if the “N” word is acceptable, what it’s like being a black student on a predominately white campus and other pivotal questions. Dominic Hardaway, president of the chapter, said it’s up to Alpha Phi Alpha and other multicultural Greeks to prepare events like “New Slaves.” “We rarely get interested

people to come speak to us or professors who want to teach things that relate to us,” Hardaway said. “So when the institution fails to provide that for us, it’s our job to provide it for each other.” Hardaway said initially the event was going to be sort of a black awareness event, but once he saw there was so much struggle between black students themselves, he thought it was better to discuss them in a “no-judgement zone.” “We realized that some of the biggest things were division within ourselves related to skin tone,” Hardaway said. “There is division related to socio-economic status, certain personal

beliefs, male vs. female.” Before the discussion, fraternity members divided attendees into different seats based on skin tone to create an experience and show them that through discussion, things such as skin tone don’t have to be a dividing issue. Michaela Boyd, a member of the choir that sang before the event, said she was glad to find out there was not only an event like “New Slaves” at OSU but also all of Alpha Week as well. She shared Hardaway’s sentiment’s that there should be more events like it. “I feel like it would be better if we had other cultures actually join us and hear some of the stuff,”

Jordan Bishop/O’COLLY Members of Alpha Phi Alpha discuss racial issues with African-Americn students in Ag Hall on Thursday night.

Boyd said. “It would be kind of cool if we could get together and learn about each other’s differences and even some similarities.” Chauntel Brown, a psychology major, said she thinks that the first step toward getting past racial issues and bridging the divide in society is to discuss them with other African Americans. “We’re so different with such different backgrounds

coming from our roots in Africa to being here and born and raised in a western European culture,” Brown said. “It has shaped each of us in a very different way. What is normal to one person isn’t normal isn’t normal to everyone else. “It opens the eyes to those who may not know, and it’s about adjusting and adapting and living in harmony” follow jordan: @jordanbishop35
