Gameday

EXCITEMENT Riddle-Pace Field along with the Lott Baseball Complex have made the Troy baseball facilty one of the best in the nation Nearly 200,000 Trojan fans have poured through the gates at RiddlePace over the past five seasons Troy was 30-5 at home in 2011 and is 175-75 (.700) record at home under Bobby Pierce Riddle-Pace Field features a stateof-the-art playing surface and the largest videoboard in the Sun Belt Conference


STRENGTH AND

CONDITIONING Under the direction of head strength and conditioning coach Richard Shaughnessy and his assistants, the Troy University strength and conditioning program is committed to maximizing the on-field performance of every student-athlete. As a testament to Shaughnessy’s success as a strength and conditioning coach, he was inducted as a Master Strength Coach by the College of Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA) in May of 2009.


TROJANS SPORTS

MEDICINE Health care is one of the most important aspects of a student-athlete’s life, and no university is more committed to keeping athletes that way like Troy University. Head athletic trainer Chuck Ash and his staff make sure that each need of the student-athlete is met, whether it be early morning hours or after class at night.


AMONG THE

NATION’S BEST When it comes to colleges and universities in the state of Alabama, Troy University tops the list, according to Forbes Magazine. Founded in 1887, Troy University was named Alabama’s leading institution of higher education in the magazine’s third annual “America’s Best Colleges” list released in August 2010 and was ranked 16th nationally on the magazine’s “America’s Best College Buys” list. The survey, conducted jointly with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, included 600 institutions nationwide, and based its rankings on student evaluations, graduates’ success, student debt loads and graduation rates. “We were thrilled by the announcement by Forbes Magazine that Troy University has been recognized as the best university in the state of Alabama inclusive of the publics and the privates. Beyond that we were also proud to be ranked 16th nationally on its best college buy list,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., Chancellor. “Troy University has always been known as a quality-driven institution, but one, too, that is accessible, and accessibility reflects affordability in so many ways. We work hard at being good stewards to be sure the students get a quality experience


for their investment of time and resources.” Forbes is not the only publication to take note of quality educational opportunities provided by Troy. The University was recently named a top-tier school among its peer institutions in the South by U.S. News and World Report’s annual “Best Colleges” guide and, for the sixth year in a row, was named to the Princeton Review’s “Best in Southeast” listing of colleges and universities. In addition, GIJobs.com, which works to steer veterans and active-duty military members to quality services, has recognized TROY as being in the top 15 percent of all universities, colleges, community colleges and trade schools in country in terms of being “military friendly.” This type of external recognition validates the “culture of caring” that exists at Troy, Dr. Hawkins said. “These distinctions underscore our philosophy at TROY that the most important thing we do is serve our students,” he said.


WINNING IN THE

CLASSROOM

Perhaps no other athletic department in the conference, nor in the country, has put more of an emphasis on academics than Troy University. The most important part of the goals set forth by the department is academics, as they vow to make the Trojans “Champions in the Classroom and on the Field.� It has long been emphasized that the goals for the Trojans are to educate our student-athletes, help them to compete on the field and turn them into model citizens that will represent Troy University in the world.

NCAA Statistical Champions The Trojans put together a remarkable run of six straight seasons with a player leading the NCAA in either a final statistical category or at their position defensively.

Nate Moore - 2004

Everyone knew it was coming at the end of games in 2004. If the Trojans held a lead late in the game, Nate Moore was going to take the mound. The Kinston, Ala., native was as dominant throughout that season as any player in college baseball. In 64.2 innings or work during the year, Moore allowed only nine earned runs. Name School IP ER ERA 1. Nate Moore Troy 64.2 9 1.25 2. Jered Weaver Long Beach State 144.0 26 1.63 3. Brad Kilby San Jose State 58.0 11 1.71 4. Jason Windsor Cal State-Fullerton 162.2 31 1.71 5. Wade Townsend Rice 120.1 23 1.72

Adam Godwin - 2005

There was nothing anyone could do to stop it. When Adam Godwin got on first base, everyone in the park knew what was coming. The opposing coaches knew, the pitchers knew and the catchers knew. Everyone was aware, but there was nothing they could do about it. The Enterprise, Ala., native was so dominant on the base paths that, not only did he set new school and conference marks for stolen bases in a season, he earned Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year honors. To illustrate how dominant he was, he stole second and third base consecutively 27 times during the year. Those 27 trips around the bases, alone, would have left him one stolen base shy of leading the nation. Name School G SB SB/G 1. Adam Godwin Troy 58 84 1.45 2. Carl Lipsey Jackson State 46 55 1.20 3. Corey Wimberley Alcorn State 38 42 1.11 4. Zach Penprase Miss. Valley State 48 44 0.92 5. Will Bashelor Dartmouth 34 30 0.88

Tom King - 2006

Tom King was a little big of an unknown entering the 2006 season. A transfer from South Carolina, no one expected the kind of season King put up. His 35 doubles not only led the nation, they fell one short of tying the all-time NCAA single-season record. The Panama City, Fla., native led the Trojans to a Sun Belt Conference title in their first year in the league by leading the nation in both doubles and hits. In addition to setting league records in both categories, he also set new league marks with a 31-game hitting streak and by getting hits in nine consecutive at bats, twice. He was named Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year for his efforts. Name School G 2B 1. Tom King Troy 63 35 2. Jay Miller Washington State 59 28 3. Jacob Dempsey Winthrop 64 28 4. Phillip Laurent Liberty 60 27 5. Three tied 26 Name School AB H Avg. 1. Tom King Troy 285 117 .411 2. Chad Flack North Carolina 292 112 .384 3. Mike Goetz UW-Milwaukee 225 111 .493 4.

NCAA Statistical Champions NCAA Statistical Champions Josh Dew - 2007

Like Moore three years before, Josh Dew got the ball at the end of a lot of games for the Trojans in 2007. Unlike Moore, he rarely got the opportunity to warm up in the bull pen because he spent most of his time playing first base. The Montgomery, Ala., native’s moonlighting as a closer turned into his primary vocation as he turned in one dominant performance after another. Dew earned Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year honors by striking out better than 40 percent of the hitters he faced during the year while posting a 7-2 record and earning 10 saves. Name School App. IP SO K/9 1. Josh Dew Troy 27 65.1 97 13.4 2. David Price Vanderbilt 18 133.1 194 13.1 3. Jess Todd Arkansas 23 93.1 128 12.3 4. Chance Chapman Oral Roberts 22 94.0 127 12.2 5. Mitch Harris Navy 14 88.1 119 12.1

Bryan Miller - 2008

The thought of producing a fifth straight national champion at the beginning of the 2008 season was not even a consideration. Through 11 games, the Incline Village, Nev., native had a fairly average five doubles. He more than doubled that total in a series against FIU, but the best was yet to come. Through 34 games, Miller had 16 doubles, but over a 24-game hitting streak to end the season, Miller hit a sparkling .519 with 16 more doubles, not to mention 10 home runs. He also drove in 41 runs during that stretch, with a .963 slugging percentage. Name School G 2B 2B/G 1. Bryan Miller Troy 58 32 .55 2. Matt Pace Ark.-Pine Bluff 43 23 .53 3. Ike Davis Arizona State 52 26 .50 4. Ryan Keedy UAB 60 29 .48 5. Jesse Hart UW-Milwaukee 59 28 .47

Brett Henry - 2009

Awarded to only nine players in Division I baseball, the Rawlings Gold Glove is one of the game’s toughest awards to receive. Henry, a native of Mobile, Ala., claimed the award at third base after posted a .976 fielding percentage his senior season. Henry committed just four errors in 166 defensive chances at the hot corner and was on the front end of nine double plays. His efforts helped Troy rank 47th among 288 Division I schools in fielding percentage on the season. He also was solid at the plate as he finished the year batting at a .313 clip with seven home runs and 42 RBIs.

On Wednesday, April 16, 2008, prior to Troy’s game against Samford, a ceremony was held to officially dedicate the Lott Baseball Complex at RiddlePace Field. Members of the Lott family and various University dignitaries were on hand for the ceremony and ribbon cutting. “This is another first at Troy University as we continue to move forward,” Athletics Director Steve Dennis said. “We are grateful to have such wonderful supporters in the Lott family and everyone who helped in making the project a success.” The presentation focused on the Lott family, who was in large part responsible for making the improvements possible. “We are very proud of our facility and very appreciative to those who helped us achieve this goal,” Trojan coach Bobby Pierce said. The late Jerry Lott was inducted into the Troy Baseball Hall of Fame in the fall of 2007. Mrs. Lott currently serves in many roles at Troy University, both as a member of the Troy Planned Giving Council, and as a founding member of the Troy Shield Society. Mr. and Mrs. Lott, along with their children Mike and Janet, have been instrumental in making the newly constructed Lott Baseball Complex go from a mere vision to the reality. “This is a magnificent place and it is going to serve us well,” Pierce said.

Bobby Pierce Since his arrival at Troy University in 2003, Bobby Pierce has presided over a period of unprecedented growth in the Trojans baseball program.

Troy Head Coach at Troy: 325-206 (9 Years) Overall: 860-409 (23 Years)

The Pierce File

The success of the program on the field is obvious. In his nine seasons the Trojans have captured three conference titles, have been to three NCAA Regionals, produced six consecutive seasons with a national award winner, had 12 All-Americans and has sent 23 players on to professional baseball. In conference competition, the Trojans have produced 36 all-conference selections, including three players who earned Pitcher of the Year honors, two who earned Player of the Year, one who was named Newcomer of the Year and, in 2009, a player named Freshman of the Year. In terms of team results, the Trojans led the nation in runs scored in 2006 and have been in the top 10 nationally in home runs four times since Pierce has been in charge of the program. In the past eight years, the Trojans have set new team season records in 10 offensive and 10 pitching categories.

Along with the production on the diamond, the baseball program at Troy under Pierce has regularly been among the best performing athletic programs at Troy University in the classroom. The program has posted a team GPA of better than 3.0 during many semesters, including the fall 2011 semester, and has almost 50 percent of the squad achieving that standard on a regular basis.

Playing Career

One of the highlights of Pierce’s tenure at Troy was the first team Academic All-America honor earned by Kevin Weidlich in 2007.

Coaching Accomplishments at Troy - Inducted into Alabama Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame - Averaged 36 wins a season - Led the Trojans to three NCAA Regional appearances - Coached 12 All-Americans & 23 players who have signed professional contracts - Coached six consecutive national award winners (2004-09) - Won three conference championships (2005, 2007, 2011) - Has coached three Pitchers of the Year (2005, 2006, 2011), two Players of the Year (2005, 2011), one Newcomer of the Year (2007) and one Freshman of the Year (2009) - Two-time Sun Belt Coach of the Year (2006 & 2011) and the 2011 ACBA South Central Region Coach of the Year

Another highlight of Pierce’s tenure as Troy’s head coach has been the dramatic facility improvements. Riddle-Pace Field has gone from being a very good college baseball facility when Pierce arrived to the point where it is now one of the show places of college baseball. The completion of the Lott Baseball Complex, with a state-of-the-art locker room, coaching offices, covered practice areas and numerous other amenities give the Troy University baseball program a facility that is the equal of any in the nation. The addition of a new artificial playing surface, outfield wall with video replay capabilities and the top lighting in the nation give the Trojans a unique competitive advantage that will last for many years. When Pierce first arrived on the Troy University campus in 2003, he had a plan for the future of the Trojans’ baseball program. He knew about the history of the program – the national and conference championships – but he also knew about the struggles the program had endured since moving into the competitive world of Division I baseball. But Pierce had a plan for growing the program that was tried and true. His plan had worked at Chipola College and at Alabama-Huntsville. In 2003, Pierce brought his plan for success to Troy and the results have been startling. Pierce took over a struggling program that had endured three consecutive losing seasons and, in his first season, he led the Trojans to a surprising 27-27 record, including a 16-16 mark in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

- Troy is 252-4 when leading after eight innings under Pierce

Coaching Accomplishments

- Averaged 37 wins a season over 23 seasons as head coach - Led Alabama-Huntsville to five straight NCAA Regional appearances - Has never had a losing season in 23 years - Was the youngest coach in Florida junior college history when he took the Chipola College job at 23-years old

2012 Troy University Baseball Media Guide


Bobby Pierce In his second season Pierce’s Trojans made greater strides, perhaps surpassing expectations by making a run all the way to the title game of the A-Sun Tournament. That club opened the season with a seven-game win streak and added a 10-game streak during the middle of the campaign. The 2004 Troy team also produced the programs’ first Division I All-American. Junior closer Nate Moore earned first team honors while leading all of college baseball with a 1.25 earned run average. Those two accomplishments started a remarkable run for the Troy program that ran through the 2009 campaign. Moore was also the first Trojan selected in the MLB First-Year Player Draft under Pierce, going in the fourth round to the Kansas City Royals. Since Moore’s selection in 2004, 14 more Trojans have had their names called in the MLB draft. Most remarkable was the streak of six seasons, starting with Moore in 2004 and ending with Brett Henry in 2009, when the Troy program produced a national award winner. According to long-time NCAA staff members, the streak was unprecedented in college baseball history. By the 2005 season, without Moore, there were doubts as to whether the Trojans would, or could, continue to improve. Those concerns were answered by a group of seniors who led Troy to a wire-to-wire run to the A-Sun title, earning two more players All-America recognition. Adam Godwin ran his way into not only the Troy record book, but also the A-Sun and NCAA books with 84 stolen bases that season in earning league Player of the Year as well as All-America honors. Three other seniors on that squad – pitchers Landon Brazell and Brent Adcock, along with catcher Henry Gutierrez – also earned all-conference honors that year, with Adcock earning conference Pitcher of the Year. For Pierce, the hardware was for Coach of the Year, his first such award at Troy. In addition to the successes of 2005 on the field, the squad also performed well in the classroom, capturing the Fred B. Davis Award for having the highest team grade point average among all of the men’s sports teams at Troy University. In 2006, Pierce had to find a way to replace the four departed seniors who made up the core of the A-Sun title team. By all accounts, the move to the Sun Belt Conference was a big step up in competition for the Trojans. The league has several programs which are perennial NCAA

Tournament teams and the competition on a daily basis throughout the league is intense. Surely, the experts thought, the best Troy could hope for in its first season would be a middle of the pack finish. Well, that was not part of Pierce’s plan. His plan called for the Trojans to continue to make steady strides each season. Missing the NCAA Tournament in 2005 gave the returning players plenty of motivation as the squad entered a new league. There were two unknown players who joined the Troy program for the move to the Sun Belt – Tom King and Mike Felix – and both had All-America seasons. The Trojans staggered to a 3-6 start and were struggling early in the season but, as if flipping a switch, the teams’ fortunes changed. The Trojans won 23 of their next 27 games, and raced out to a 12-1 record in their first Sun Belt season. By the time the season ended, Pierce had earned his second straight Coach of the Year Award and the Trojans had won the Sun Belt championship. King became a national phenomenon as he chased the all-time NCAA single season record for doubles. He fell one shy of the record, but led the nation with 35 two-base hits and with 117 total hits, joining Moore and Godwin as national leaders.

Bobby Pierce Despite a record that left little doubt about an NCAA Tournament invitation, the Trojans left no room for doubt by sweeping through the Sun Belt Tournament to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The 47 overall wins posted by the Trojans in 2006 were the most since making the move to Division I in 1994.

The 2010 Trojans, loaded with 13 seniors, were poised to produce another memorable season. After a slow start left the team with a 19-19 mark past the halfway point of the year, the team turned up the intensity to win 13 of the final 17 games of the regular season.

The Regional berth sent Pierce back to Tuscaloosa where he had been an AllSEC West Division player for Alabama in 1980-81 and also earned a spot on its all-century team. The Trojans posted a pair of wins over Southern Miss, the only team to have swept a three-game series from Troy during the season, but were unable to defeat the host team.

Seeded sixth in the Sun Belt Tournament, little was expected from the Trojans, but the team went to Murfreesboro on a mission and bounced host Middle Tennessee and Arkansas State before falling to FIU in the title game.

Both King and Felix were named to All-America teams and both juniors were selected high in the MLB draft. In addition to losing King and Felix, senior Jared Keel was also drafted, leaving three gaping holes in the Troy lineup heading into the 2007 season. With a bull’s eye squarely on their backs, the 2007 campaign was full of challenges. Troy entered the Sun Belt Tournament expecting to need a strong showing to earn an NCAA bid but, even after winning just once in Mobile, the Trojans’ high RPI earned the team an at-large bid, marking a second straight NCAA Regional appearance. Individually, Josh Dew earned All-America honors by leading all of college baseball with 13.4 strikeouts per nine innings. Remarkably, Dew struck out 41.4 percent of all the hitters he faced during the season. Dew, Clint Robinson and Clegg Snipes were all called in the MLB Draft following the season. After four straight NCAA statistical championships, no one even considered the possibility of someone else stepping up in 2008. That was before outfielder Bryan Miller recorded seven doubles over a four-game stretch in March. That hot streak, however, paled in comparison to an 11-game run later in the season when Miller posted a .608 batting average with 10 doubles to put himself in position. He finished the year with six doubles in his last five games to total 32 for the year. While his total wasn’t enough to win outright, his average of .55 doubles per game made him Troy’s fifth straight national champion under Pierce. He also joined the list of All-Americans to have played for Pierce at Troy. In 2009, the Trojans faced a schedule chocked full of some of the best teams in the nation. The club battled through some ups and downs, but closed the year as the third seed in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, which was played, for the first time, at Troy’s Riddle-Pace Field. The home field advantage for the tournament, however, failed to produce dividends. Following the season, two Trojans, pitchers Jason Walls and Chris Sorce, were selected in the MLB Amateur Draft and, for the sixth straight year, the Trojans produced a national award winner when senior third baseman Brett Henry was selected to the exclusive Rawlings Gold Glove Award team.

Junior shortstop Adam Bryant, although not awarded for his efforts with a Gold Glove, posted the best fielding percentage of any regular player at his position in addition to blasting 23 homers to earn All-America honors. Chase Whitley continued Troy’s run of outstanding closers during the year and was selected in the 15th round of the MLB Draft by the New York Yankees. The next chapter in the illustrious history of Trojan baseball was written in 2011 as Pierce led Troy to a 43-19 record and the program’s second Sun Belt title. With 56 home runs departed from the 2010 squad, Bryant along with junior college transfer Tyler Hannah took control of the Trojan offense. Hannah finished third in the NCAA in doubles with 27 and Bryant was right behind him with 26 two-baggers. Bryant also finished 16th in total bases, 19th in runs scored and 20th in hits. On the mound, it was 2009 Sun Belt Freshman of the Year Tyler Ray who took the league and nation by storm. The junior right-hander finished the season with an unblemished 12-0 record and finished seventh in the NCAA in wins. Following a 2-1 showing in the new round-robin Sun Belt Tournament, the Trojans earned an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament. Troy defeated Oklahoma State in the opening game of the Nashville Regional. Bryant was named the Sun Belt Co-Player of the Year, Ray was named Pitched of the Year and Pierce took home Coach of the Year honors; Pierce was also named the ABCA South Central Region Coach of the Year. The trio of Bryant, Ray and Hannah continued the run of Trojan All-Americans and the Minnesota Twins selected Bryant in the ninth round of the MLB Draft.

The Road To Troy

A Marianna, Fla., native, Pierce was no stranger to Troy when he arrived as head coach in 2003. He originally enrolled at Troy as a freshman in the fall of 1977 before transferring to South Florida Community College in January 1978. He played the 1979 season at Wallace Community College in Dothan and then signed with the University of Alabama in 1980. As a senior co-captain in 1981, Pierce set numerous school records as an All-SEC outfielder. Pierce was honored after his playing career by being named to the Crimson Tide’s all-century team. Following his graduation in 1982, the then 23-year-old became the youngest head coach in Florida junior college history at Chipola College. In his first season, the school finished 41-15 and won the Florida state junior college championship, helping him earn Panhandle Conference and Florida Junior College Coach of the Year honors. Chipola won four Panhandle Conference championships, earned five state tournament berths, with one title, and won 40 or more games four times under Pierce. In addition, more than 75 percent of his players signed scholarships at four-year institutions, more than 95 percent of which eventually earned their degrees. In seven seasons, Pierce’s squads at Chipola posted a 259-95 overall record. After the 1989 season, Pierce returned to his alma mater as Alabama’s top assistant coach. In five years, he served as recruiting coordinator, coached the offense and outfielders, served as third base coach and coordinated the program’s summer camps.

Bobby Pierce During his stay, Pierce coached his first Division I All-American, outfielder Joe Vitiello, who went on to enjoy a seven-year career in the Major Leagues. He was one of 16 players from Alabama to advance into professional baseball during Pierce’s time there. After five seasons as an assistant coach, Pierce was named the first head baseball coach in history at the University of Alabama-Huntsville. In a short time, Pierce established himself, and the Charger baseball program, as one of the best in the nation. Pierce coached several all-Conference, all-Region and All-America players while at UAH and 10 players went on to have professional careers after playing at UAH. Pierce served on the Division II All-America Committee in each of his last two years at UAH.

Pierce is married to the former Kay Walls of Chipley, Fla., a health teacher at Charles Henderson High School. The couple has three children – Lance (26), a Troy University graduate, Lauren (25), a graduate student at Troy, and Logan (22), a junior at Troy and a member of the Trojans baseball team. In January 2010, Pierce was honored by his peers for his career of dedication to the sport of baseball with induction into the Alabama Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

During his time in Huntsville, Pierce posted a 276-108 record in seven seasons. He guided the Chargers to the 2001 Gulf South Conference title and four NCAA regional tournament appearances after founding the program in 1995. His squads also won three GSC East Division crowns and advanced to the conference tourna-

Education

Smartt, a second baseman for legendary Coach Chase Riddle, helped lead the Trojans to the 1986 and 1987 NCAA Division II national championships. He was the second leading hitter (.405) on the ’86 championship team, which is the sixth highest single-season average in school history. He ended his career with a .379 batting average, the third-highest career average in school annals. He also ended his career with a stellar .954 fielding percentage. During his two-year Trojan career, Smartt was named to the All-GSC team in 1986 and 1987 and earned second-team All-Region honors in 1987. He was also named to the College World Series All-Tournament team in 1987 after hitting .333 while not committing an error in 24 chances. His successful playing career was punctuated by his induction into the Troy University Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002. Following two years as an assistant coach under Riddle, Smartt spent 11 seasons as a coach at the University of West Alabama, serving as the head coach from 1995-2000. He arrived in Livingston as the school’s first full-time assistant coach in 1990 under then head coach Mark Hogan. His recruiting efforts helped produce a 1992 Division II College World Series appearance after capturing the Gulf South Conference and South Central Regional Championships along the way. The Tigers captured a GSC West Division Championship in 1994, his last season as an assistant. In 1995, Smartt was elevated to the head coaching position and compiled a 165-163 record in six seasons. During his tenure, his teams broke or tied 38 school records while producing two All-America, seven All-Region and 10 All-GSC selections.

Sun Belt Conference Formed in 1976 the Sun Belt Conference quickly rose to the greatest heights of collegiate athletics by sending a team to the NCAA Final Four in the league’s first year of existence. Fast forward 36 years and the league again finds itself at the pinnacle of collegiate athletics as a member of the 11 league alliance of the Bowl Championship Series. Through it all, the constant has always been success, progress and academic excellence. The Early Years The Sun Belt Conference was founded on August 4, 1976 with New Orleans, South Alabama, Georgia State, Jacksonville, North Carolina-Charlotte and South Florida participating in four men’s sports: basketball, golf, soccer and tennis. The Sun Belt Conference began as a home for some of the nation’s best independent men’s basketball programs and the six team league didn’t need long to prove that it was an emerging power in college athletics. In the first season of the league, former member North Carolina-Charlotte reached the pinnacle of collegiate basketball by playing in the Final Four. Along the way Charlotte defeated Central Michigan, Syracuse and Michigan to advance to the Final Four. Their miraculous run ended with a 51-49 loss to eventual national champion Marquette. Star forward Cedric Maxwell was selected in the first round of the NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. Maxwell was the first in a long line of great Sun Belt men’s basketball stars, as 11 total players have gone on to be first-round selections in the NBA Draft. Those draftees include Dee Brown (Jacksonville – Boston Celtics, 1990), Ervin Johnson (New Orleans – Seattle Sonics, 1993), Derek Fisher (UALR – Los Angeles Lakers, 1996) and Courtney Lee (Western Kentucky University – Orlando Magic, 2008). In addition to its early found success in men’s basketball, the Sun Belt Conference proved to be a leader in the evolution of the game as well. With trips to the Final Four in hand and groundbreaking television deals the Sun Belt Conference proved early on that success and progress were going to be the backbone of the conference. But that was just the beginning for the league. Future decades had change in mind. Changes sparked new members, additional sports and eventually the evolution of the Sun Belt Conference as a member of the Bowl Championship Series. American South Conference members Arkansas State, Central Florida, Lamar, Louisiana Tech, New Orleans, Southwestern Louisiana (now Louisiana-Lafayette) and Texas-Pan American joined UALR and existing Sun Belt Conference members Jacksonville, South Alabama and Western Kentucky when the two conferences merged in 1991. The newfound alignment of the league had little problems replicating the success of the early years of the league. In fact, teams from the Sun Belt Conference would once again reach the pinnacle of success during the 1990s. The 1990s also saw the emergence of the Sun Belt Conference as a power in college baseball. In fact, the Sun Belt Conference has sent multiple teams to the NCAA tournament each year since 1988. The 23-year streak of having two or more teams reach NCAA play is matched by only four other conferences (ACC, Big West, SEC, Pac-10). The conference continues to utilize television to grow and promote the league and its member institutions. The Sun Belt Conference signed a new multi-year agreement with ESPN, Inc. in January of 2009 that has resulted in unprecedented national coverage for the league. Additionally, ESPN televised the conference’s men’s basketball championship game for the 31st straight season in 2011, marking its longest affiliation with any conference in the country. The conference’s regional television partnership with Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast (CSS) and Cox Sports Television (CST) enables live telecasts of Sun Belt events to reach millions of households. The addition of volleyball, baseball and

The Sun Belt Conference has also partnered with multiplatform internet provider NeuLion to deliver a full-service, customized, public and premium website to provide fans with a broad range of real-time information and content about the conference’s athletic teams. The Sun Belt is one of the few conferences in the nation to provide video highlights and features on its website from each of the league’s respective championships. This technology serves as a great recruiting tool for schools by enabling anyone in the world with internet access to view the conference’s championship events. Success has been easy to find in recent years as well. Since the 2005 football season – the first season following major college football realignment – the Sun Belt Conference ranks fifth out of the 11 FBS conferences in postseason bowl game winning percentage. In fact, the Sun Belt Conference ranks ahead of noted “Big Six” leagues – the Big 12, ACC and the Big Ten. Furthermore, the Sun Belt Conference outpaces its non-automatic qualifying BCS partners in the WAC, Conference USA and the MAC. There has been no shortage of success in the league’s other sports as well in recent years. The Sun Belt Conference has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Baseball Tournament for 23 consecutive seasons. Additionally, the league has sent three or more teams to the NCAAs in 8 of the last 13 seasons.

HISTORY & RECORDS

2012 Troy University Baseball Media Guide

Troy Baseball history Few schools in the South, let alone in America, possess as rich a history and tradition as that of the Troy baseball program. In the last 40 years, Trojan hardball squads have claimed more than 1,300 victories, 14 conference championships, seven NCAA Regional crowns and back-toback Division II NCAA Championships in 1986 and 1987. Photographic archives show evidence of intercollegiate baseball in the Wiregrass as early as the turn of the century, but school records only date back to 1954. Listed hereafter is a synopsis of the “modern era” of Troy Baseball.

1931 All home games are moved to what is now known as Riddle-Pace Field. All previous home seasons were played on the quad in front of Shackelford Hall. The change in venue was due to the number of windows being broken in Shackelford.

1961 In his first season as head coach, Melvin Lucas leads Troy to a 17-7 record and its first Alabama Intercollegiate Conference title. After capturing ACC crowns in 1962 and 1964, Lucas ends his four-year stint with a 62-30 record. His .674 winning percentage is still second all-time at Troy.

1975 Larry Maier is hired as the eighth coach in school history. He is also the linebackers coach on the Troy football team. In his only season on the diamond, the 33-year-old leads the Trojans to a 14-12 record.

1978 Catcher Buster Bergstrom is named first-team All-GSC and secondteam All-South Central Region as a junior. In a team-high 187 at bats, he struck out just two times. His 93.5 at bat-to-strikeout ratio is still a school record.

1979 After 25 years as a player, manager and scout with the St. Louis Cardinals, 50-year-old Chase Riddle is hired as the ninth head coach since 1954. In his first year as the head man in Troy, he led the Trojans to a then-school-record 33 wins and a second-place finish in the Gulf South Conference Eastern Division. They also reeled off a school-record 20-game winning streak. Stan McCauley leads the GSC with 14 home runs and becomes Troy’s first All-America selection. Pitcher Andy Giannini finishes tied for the conference lead with 10 wins.

Pace Field, circa 1950. eliminated by New Haven, 15-7, and ended the year with a 30-12 mark. Riddle was named GSC and NCAA Central Region Coach of the Year.

1981 Senior Danny Cox throws an NCAA-record 43 consecutive scoreless innings on his way to a 13-3 record and 1.30 ERA. His 13 victories are tops in the NCAA.

1982 The Trojans tear through the GSC and capture their third consecutive conference crown, but are denied a spot in NCAA Regional play. Troy (31-10, 8-3 GSC) finished the season ranked 13th, its lowest in four years under Riddle.

1983 Troy’s string of three consecutive GSC titles is snapped and the Trojans failed to reach the CWS for the second straight season, falling in the semifinals of the NCAA Central Regional. Troy finished with a 23-11-1 record, 5-3-1 in GSC play, and a No. 7 final ranking.

1984 The 1984 squad won a then-school-record 39 games (16 losses) and finished third at the NCAA College World Series and won the third Central Region title in the last five years. The 1984 team broke or tied an amazing 76 school records.

1980

1985

After sweeping Jacksonville State, 2-0, in the GSC Championship playoff, Troy played host to the NCAA Central Regional. The Trojans went 5-1 and advanced to their first College World Series in Riverside, Calif. Troy dropped their first game, 8-2, to Florida International but rebounded with a 6-3 win over Florida Southern in the loser’s bracket. The Trojans were

Eleven seniors led Troy back to the NCAA CWS and broke the school record for wins (43) and home runs (87). The home run record stood for 13 years. Senior Chuck Stanhope and junior Ron Warren combine for 22 victories, 12 complete games and a 3.15 ERA. It was the first year for the CWS to be played at Paterson Field in Montgomery.

1986 Mike Perez, a transfer from the University of Florida, leads the NCAA with 13 wins. His .929 (13-1) winning percentage is the best single-season percentage in school history and the 13th-highest in Division II history. On May 23, an NCAA Division II record for attendance is established in the Division II College World Series as 6,280 fans pack Montgomery’s Paterson Field for the doubleheader featuring Cal State Sacramento against Tampa and Troy against Mankato State.

Troy repeated as NCAA Champions with a 38-10-1 record and closed the season with a 15-game winning streak. First baseman Jude Rinaldi hit a school-record .431 and led the team in hits (62), home runs (16) and fielding percentage (.990). He was named the CWS Most Outstanding Player after he hit .588 with seven RBI in four games. James Wray makes a run at Danny Cox’s consecutive scoreless

Troy Baseball aseball History Troy Baseball history In the off-season the infield of Pace Field was dug up, leveled and rebuilt with new sod and a complete state-of-the-art irrigation system.

1991 Eckerd College head coach John Mayotte was hired as the 10th head coach since 1954. His task was simple: Maintain the level of success that Riddle had elevated the program to in the 1980s and remain competitive at the Division I level. He did just that in his first year, leading the Trojans to a 34-19 record, the Gulf South Conference East Division crown and a berth in the NCAA South Central Regional. Troy finished the year ranked 14th in the nation. On April 13, Chase Riddle’s No. 25 became the first number to be retired in Troy history.

1992 The loss of Troy’s top three pitchers from the 1991 team proved too much to overcome as the Trojans finished with a 29-21 record. Dave Sparks emerged as the ace of the squad and went 7-2 with four complete games and three shutouts. The high point of the year came on Friday, April 24, Mike Perez and head coach Chase Riddle accepting the 1986 NCAA when he hurled a perfect game against Georgia State at Riddle-Pace Field. Division II National Championships trophy. Troy led the nation in attendance with 5,625 total fans passing through the turnstiles at Riddle-Pace Field. The Trojans averaged 433 innings streak but falls short with 36 consecutive. That is still fourth allfans per game. time in NCAA Division II history.

1993

1988 The Trojans finished with a 35-17 record but were eliminated in the semifinals of the NCAA South Central Regional and denied a chance to win a third consecutive national title.

1989 Shortstop Dirk Williams led the team in batting average (.410), hits (59), singles (46), doubles (11) and runs batted in (34) en route to claiming All-Gulf South honors. With a 29-16 record, the Trojans fail to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1981.

1990 In what would be Coach Riddle’s last year at Troy, the Trojans finished one game shy of a run at a third national championship, dropping the regional title contest to arch-rival Jacksonville State. Troy went 51-10 and broke or tied more than 40 team and individual school records. Ward Thigpen earned first-team All-America accolades, while catcher Joel Smith garnered third-team honors. Scott Ates tied an NCAA Division II record when he hit four home runs against Valparaiso on March 6. He was the first player since 1965 to accomplish the feat. His 16 total bases tied the NCAA record and stood for three years -- but is now tied for sixth all-time. On June 4, by an act of the University Board of Trustees, Pace Field was officially renamed Riddle-Pace Field.

In its final year as a Division II member, Troy claimed the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament and returned to the College World Series for the first time since 1987. Knowing it would be the final appearance in Montgomery, the Trojans were the sentimental favorite to win their third championship. Senior Steve “Chainsaw” Charles took the hill and made just his third start of the season in the opener against Mansfield. He definitely made the most of his opportunity. In front of 5,100 fans, Charles threw the first no-hitter in College World Series history. The Trojans went 1-2 over their next three contests and had to settle for a third-place finish. They ended the year with a 39-17 record. Charles finished the season with a 1.40 ERA, a 5-1 record, a schoolrecord 10 saves and was named first team All-America. Charles’ 4.34 hits allowed per nine innings went down as the fourth lowest total in NCAA Division II annals. Senior catcher Chip Hummel earned third-team AllAmerica honors after batting .325 and leading the team in at bats (203), hits (66) and doubles (13). Mayotte was named Division II National Coach of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association.

1994 In its first year as a full Division I member, Troy won the East Coast Conference Tournament with a 5-1 record and finished the season with a 34-16 mark. The Trojans posted a four-game split with NCAA Tournament participant South Alabama and a two-game split with eventual NCAA College World Series participant Auburn. Right-hander Rob Batchler was named ECC Player of the Year as he posted an 11-3 record and a 3.73 ERA. He concluded his two-year career with a 22-7 record. Catcher Curtis Green and outfielder Daryl George were also named All-ECC.

1995

On May 23, 1987, 6,280 fans packed Montgomery’s Patterson Field for the first day of the NCAA Division II College World Series.

With the 1995 season came high expectations and anticipation around the Troy campus. Troy was entering its first year as a member of the Mid-Continent Conference. The Trojans finished the regular season with a 22-21-1 record and drew the third seed in the fourteam MCC Tournament, hosted by Eastern Illinois in Charleston. Trojan ace Jason Fawcett beat EIU 13-6 in game one, as Alex Rosa paced the team with a three-run homer and two-run double. A thrilling 8-7 win over Western Illinois in game two left Troy just one win shy of the Mid-Con title. Tournament MVP Rosa hit another three-run dinger, and Peter Bezeredi collected four hits as the Trojans defeated WIU, 12-9, for the championship. The Trojans continued their hot play in the NCAA Play-In series

Troy Baseball Troy Baseball history History against Midwestern Collegiate Conference champ Wright State. Fawcett took the hill in game one as the bats provided more than enough support in a 16-7 rout. Troy earned its first NCAA Regional berth when pinch-runner Lance Lawley scored from second on a single by Rhodney Donaldson with the score tied in the bottom of the ninth to give Troy a 6-5 victory. Despite losing two straight games, to top-seeded Florida State and second-seeded Ole Miss, in the Atlantic I Regional in Tallahassee, Fla., the trip will forever be remembered as the event that officially welcomed Troy into the Division I family.

1996 The Trojans went through the Mid-Con regular season with a 16-2 record, earned the top seed in the East Division and the host role. NE Illinois upset Troy, 8-7, in the first round when it scored the winning run on an eighth-inning error. Troy fought through the losers bracket with wins over Eastern Illinois and Pace, setting up a rematch with NEIU. Northeastern’s Matt Dunne had two hits in leading the Golden Eagles to a 3-0 victory. Troy (41-13) swept the regular season awards dished out by the conference. Reggie Hightower was named Player of the Year, Dean Cordova was named Pitcher of the Year, Michael Rivera was named Newcomer of the Year and John Mayotte was named Coach of the Year.

1997 The 1997 season proved to be one of the most successful since moving to Division I status. Troy finished with a 37-23 slate, captured its second Mid-Con title in three years, won an NCAA Play-In series and

Troy Baseball aseball History Troy Baseball history advanced to an NCAA Regional for the second time in three seasons. Troy’s 8-6 conference mark earned the Trojans the East Division’s top seed in the post-season tournament, hosted by NE Illinois in Chicago. The Trojans breezed by Western Illinois and NE Illinois to earn a spot in the finals. NEIU upended Troy, 7-3, forcing a winner-take-all final. The Trojans exacted some revenge from the previous year, defeating the Golden Eagles, 9-3, on their home field. Troy took two straight from Detroit in the NCAA Play-In series and was assigned to the NCAA South II Regional in Tuscaloosa, Ala. In their opening game against Alabama, the Trojans held a 5-4 advantage through six-and-a-half innings but could not hang on, as the top-ranked Crimson Tide won, 8-5. A day later, ninth-ranked USC eliminated Troy, 5-2, ending the Trojans’ season at 37-23. The Trojans nearly pulled off another sweep of the conference awards, missing out only on the Newcomer of the Year. Outfielder Bryan Kelley was named Player of the Year, Jason Fawcett Pitcher of the Year and Mayotte earned his fourth career Coach of the Year award.

1998 In their first year as a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference, the Trojans finished with a 37-21 mark and advanced to the conference title game. Troy hit a school-record 115 home runs, led primarily by the record-setting bat of Jorge Soto, who hit 23. On April 14, 2,159 fans set a Riddle-Pace Field attendance record as Troy upset third-ranked Alabama, 8-4.

1999 Troy tallied 118 home runs, breaking the school record of 115 set in 1998. The 2.00 HR per game ranked second nationally. The Trojans also ranked 31st in scoring (8.39 rpg) and seventh in slugging (.564). Senior Jorge Soto ranked 11th with 0.446 HR per game. His 26 round-trippers set a new school record, breaking his own record set in 1998. Kevan Burns’ 22 and 0.376 per game placed him in a tie for 29th. On May 8, Troy broke 10 individual and team records in a 34-4 rout of Stetson at Riddle-Pace Field. The 14 hits belted out by the Trojans in the sixth inning are an NCAA Division I record.

He was taken in the fourth round of the Major League Baseball June Amateur Draft by the Kansas City Royals.

2005 Going into its final season of play in the Atlantic Sun Conference, the Trojans squad put together an amazing combination of speed on the base paths, power at the plate and dominating starting pitching to dominate the league race, winning the league title by a comfortable margin.

2000 Junior third baseman Casey Smith finished the year with a .404 batting average, ranking 42nd nationally. The Trojans finished with a 22-34 record, 11-16 in A-Sun play, and missed the conference tournament for the first time in three years as a member.

2001 Troy won five of its final six regular-season games to secure the sixth seed in the A-Sun Tournament. After dropping their opener to UCF, the Trojans upset No. 2 seed Stetson before falling to Jacksonville in the quarterfinals. The Trojans finished the year at 27-28 overall and 13-17 in A-Sun action. Jason Bernard was named second team All-South Region and finished among the national leaders in wins (20th with 11) and ERA (52nd at 2.71). As a team, the Trojans finished 16th in double plays (1.07 per game).

2002 After enduring a slow start, the Troy baseball team rallied over the last month to earn another berth in the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. The Trojans won 19 of their last 28 games, including nine straight at one point, to pull into fourth place in the A-Sun standings.

2003 Troy began the Bobby Pierce era with a 27-27 finish. The Trojans won their first five under Pierce and were in contention for a spot in the A-Sun tournament. However, they dropped 10 of their last 13 to miss the tournament by just one game. Trent Cox broke the freshman hit record with 49 and was named to the A-Sun All-Freshman team.

Troy Baseball Troy Baseball history History Troy’s 47-16 overall record was the best for the program since moving to Division I in 1994. The season was full of landmark performances. Tom King earned AllAmerica honors after leading the nation in hits and doubles, setting school and conference records in both. King also had a 31-game hit streak during the year and had hits in nine consecutive at bats twice, breaking another SBC mark.

2007 The Trojans earned a second straight NCAA Tournament berth, but fell short of a third straight conference title. The season was highlighted by victories over Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, Southern Miss and Arkansas, not to mention a pair of thrilling wins over nationally-ranked Coastal Carolina. Troy’s strong non-conference performance resulted in a top 20 RPI and earned the team an at-large berth into the Oxford Regional. There the team dropped consecutive games to Southern Miss and Sam Houston State to end the season. The Trojans ran their streak of NCAA statistical champions to four with Josh Dew’s performance on the mound. Dew earned Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year honors after posting a 7-2 record with 10 saves and leading all of college baseball with 13.36 strikeouts per nine innings.

2008

2004 All-American and NCAA Stat Champion Nate Moore was named A-Sun Player of the Year. Henry Gutierrez made a run at the A-Sun triple crown and led the way as the Trojans hammered out 82 homers for the season. Senior pitchers Brent Adcock and Landon Brazell gave Troy the top pitching tandem in the conference. The combined to win 20 of the Trojans 37 victories, and Adcock earned Pitcher of the Year honors.

2006 After the disappointment of the end of the 2005 season, the Trojans went into the 2006 campaign with renewed determination. The players were determined to leave their mark on a new league, and that is just what they did. The Trojans put together a streak in the middle of the season that resulted in victories in 20 of 21 games. That streak also helped the team get off to a 12-1 start in its first season in the Sun Belt Conference. That hot start turned out to be insurmountable as the Trojans finished with a 20-4 mark in league play to capture the Sun Belt crown in the programs’ first year in the league. With the memory of the snubbing of 2005 still fresh on the minds of all involved, the Trojans left no doubt about NCAA play by sweeping through the Sun Belt Tournament to earn an automatic berth into the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional. Upon arriving in Tuscaloosa, the Trojans were faced with the only team to sweep a series from them, Southern Miss. The Trojans answered that challenge by beating the Golden Eagles twice, but Troy was not able to overcome the homestanding Alabama club, which ended Troy’s season.

Mother nature intervened on the Trojans attempt to earn a third consecutive NCAA Regional bid. Troy knew that a victory in the Sun Belt Tournament was the only way for that bid to come, but the weather had other ideas. After dropping an opening round game to host UL Lafayette, the Trojans were poised to eliminate top-seeded New Orleans in their second game. NCAA doubles champion Bryan Miller stood at the plate with one out in the ninth inning and the winning run 90 feet away. Almost any ball put in play would result in a Troy victory. Before Miller could face a single pitch, a huge lightening bolt struck just outside the stadium, forcing a delay that turned into a 24 hour stoppage by 10 inches of rain. When play did resume the next morning, Miller and the rest of the Trojans appeared to still be sleeping. Miller struck out and UNO got a homer in extra innings to down Troy and end the Trojans’ season.

2009 While the Trojans’ streak of national statistical champions came to an end, the Troy program did produce another national award winner in 2009 when senior third baseman Brett Henry was named as a Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner as the best defensive player in the nation at his position. On the field, the team worked through a season of ups and downs. The Trojans never lost more than three consecutive games throughout the year, but also never won more than six straight. Pitching was the main culprit as Troy finished the year with the highest team ERA (6.32) in school history. The Trojans finished the Sun Belt season in sixth place, but with the league tournament coming to Riddle-Pace Field for the first time, expectations were high. The high hopes came to a crashing end after an emotional late loss to WKU on the second day of the tournament led to an early morning 16-1 loss to ULM that ended Troy’s season.

2010 The Trojans came within one game of reaching its fifth NCAA Regional since moving up to Division I. Troy put on an offensive display at the Sun Belt Conference Tournament averaging 9.5 runs per game en route to a Championship Game appearances. Troy’s success in the tournament shouldn’t have come at much of a surprise as the Trojans won 18 of their last 24 games heading into the postseason. Shortstop Adam Bryant earned first team All-America honors after batting .356 with 16 doubles, six triples, 23 home runs and 65 RBIs. Bryant,

The 2006 squad took the Sun Belt by storm posting a 20-4 mark to win the conference title in Troy’s first season in the league Chase Whitley and Steven Felix all took home All-Sun Belt honors that season -- Whitley earned all-league honors at three different positions (DH, UTL, RP). Troy blasted 100 home runs on the season (31 more than its opponents) and finished the year batting at a .316 clip as a team.

2011 A top 25 ranking, a Sun Belt Conference Championship, a trip to the NCAA Regionals, a trio of All-Americans and head coach Bobby Pierce’s 300th career victory highlighted the 2011 season for the Trojans. Troy won 25 of its first 30 ball games in the 2011 campaign including 10-of-11 to open Sun Belt Conference play. The race for the Sun Belt title came down to the final day of action between Troy and FIU. At the end of the day, it was the Trojans who were able to dogpile on the field following a 10-7 victory at rival South Alabama. Tyler Ray was named the Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Year after compiling a 12-0 record to go along with a 2.39 ERA. Shortstop Adam Bryant was named the Sun Belt Co-Player of the Year thanks to a .337 batting average, 26 doubles, 11 home runs and 66 RBIs. Third baseman Tyler Hannah -- along with Ray and Bryant -- earned All-America distinction after posting a .370 batting average to go along with 27 doubles, two triples, seven home runs, 53 RBIs and a .477 on-base percentage. The honors were not limited to the players as Pierce was named coach of the year for the Sun Belt Conference and the South Central Region. Troy knocked off Oklahoma State in the opening game of the Nashville Regional behind a strong pitching performance from Ray.

1986 National C Champions 1986 National Champions By Tom Ensey -- Troy SID (1979-97) It was midnight. And baseball was still being played. On May 23, 1986, in the opening round of the NCAA Division II Baseball Championship Finals, Troy State trailed Mankato State, 6-4, in the top of the ninth. The game hadn’t even started until 9:15 p.m. The afternoon contest, a 14-12 Sacramento State win over Tampa, had dragged on for three hours. Then, the between-game ceremonies ran overtime, pressing everything back against this moment, this unlikely hour. Midnight, bases loaded, one out: Troy third baseman Wendell Stephens at bat with an 0-2 count and a national championship in the balance. Forget that there was even one out. Stephens was Troy’s big gun, the team home run leader, school record holder for RBI in a season and career. He was The Man. This was it. Forget, too, that the crowd of 6,280 had dwindled to 2,000 or so. The diehards who remained shook the stadium with every pitch, yelling from their hearts. It was like one throbbing, swelling voice that offered up a roaring prayer for deliverance. Stephens had fouled off four straight pitches into that thunder. He and Mankato reliever Scott Toop were locked in a war of wills as if nothing else matter. And nothing else did matter. Not in that stadium, at midnight. Toop checked, rocked, fired. Fastball. Stephens’ bat flashed, cracked and the center fielder never turned around to watch it go. Toop sank to his knees. That ball was long gone, deep into the night, deep into the kudzu that grew thick on the steep clay bank rising behind the 380 sign in Montgomery’s Paterson Field. A grand slam. Unreal. “When I saw it go out,” Stephens said later. “I thought, ‘Okay, now we can win it.’” He meant the tournament -- the national championship that had eluded four previous Trojan teams. And while the tournament was far from over, there was still that ringing home run, struck at midnight. That sudden, improbably dramatic instant in which the wish became real, frozen in time and echoing in the mind like destiny. Today, with the gold trophy securely encased in the lobby of the Tine Davis Field House, the rest of the 1986 NCAA Division II Baseball Championship Finals seems strangely distant and anticlimactic. But there were other moments, many individual efforts combined, and many hearts fused into the force that forged a shared dream in to the reality of that trophy. Remember Troy State’s tough little lefty, Ron Warren, tired but bearing down in the last three innings of his last college game, a 7-5 win over valiant New Haven. He protected that two-run lead with every molecule in his body. (Before the game, before Warren trotted off to the bullpen to take

his warmup, a friend had said, “Little Man, I hope you have one more left in you.” Warren replied, “Big Man, how many do you want?”) Remember Jody Ryan’s complete game. A 9-1 win over heavyhitting Sacramento State. Ryan got the start on a hunch by coach Chase Riddle. On a lastminute lineup change, Ryan took the ball and went out to complete his up-and-down, injury-plagued, roller coaster college career as he scattered nine hits. He teetered on the brink of disaster for nine full innings, but always found the right pitch to Wendell Stephens’ ninth inning Grand Slam in the first game of the 1986 NCAA Division get out of trouble. II World Series propelled Troy State to its first Remember Mike nation title in baseball. Perez and his masterful one-hit shutout of Columbus College in the championship game, which had been delayed a day by rain. The contest was finally played in a persistent, gentle drizzle on a threatening night with the faraway rumble of distant thunder. Perez fell into a trancelike rhythm that a 26-minute rain delay in the fourth and a line drive taken to his thigh in the eighth could not undo. The Trojan batters gave him five runs, more than enough that evening. Perez threw just 80 pitches -- 54 strikes in nine innings. He retired the last 11 men in order while striking out the last two. Then, leaping into the arms of his catcher, Todd Englett, Perez thrust his redoubtable right arm high into the air in triumph. And Riddle, with every line on his weathered face aglow, put the championship into perspective. His baseball career had spanned five decades, beginning in 1942 when he signed his first professional contract at 17 in his hometown of Columbus, Ga. As he stood in the midst of the celebration, Riddle cradled the trophy he had yearned for since returning to his alma mater as coach eight years before. He watched his young national champions cheering wildly. “Just look at those kids’ faces,” Riddle said, his voice cracking. “That’s what it’s all about. That’s what you do it for.”

1987 National ional Champions 1987 National Champions By Tom Ensey -- Troy SID (1979-97) In 1987, Troy State won its second straight NCAA Division II Baseball Championship. The celebration of 1986 was still in full swing when the first person asked, “Can you do it again?” Uh, well... The tone was set early for the coming season. Comparisons between the two teams were inevitable and began before the 1987 squad even hit the field. The 1986 club left an all-but-impossible act to follow. They posted an eye-popping 46-8 record, utterly demolished good teams along the way and staged incredible, dramatic comebacks in championship play. It was as if Hollywood had scripted the season, as if some screenwriter had imagined the archetypical team of destiny and put them on the field in Troy uniforms. The ‘87 team would battle the memory of ‘86 as surely as they would face hard-eyed opposing pitchers and batters who wanted nothing more than to knock the crown off the defending champions’ heads. By the time the ‘87 sesaon started, 1986 had receded into the all-forgiving past, and typically, fans recalled something more like a highlight film than reality. And of course, the fans also expected the new edition to pick up where the legend left off, though new faces and untested players abounded. The season started, and the wheels came off. Troy State split its first doubleheader, split its second and lost its third. It was like watching somebody drown. Two-and-four to start the year, enduring three shutouts. This was not against championship competition, to put it kindly. The record inched over .500 as the young season progressed, but the uphill climb was anything but pretty. The Trojans hovered between mediocrity and collapse. Chase Riddle, the silver-haired, veteran coach, had seen a lot of ups and downs over his career. He wasn’t exactly cheerful during the rough going, but he counseled calm and patience. “I told you we wouldn’t play at the start of this year like we did at the end of last year,” he reminded. “I still have a good gut feeling about this team...Don’t give up on us...We still have a chance to be a good ballclub...I don’t know if we’ll be a championship team, that’s up to the players.” April 4 was a ridiculous day for baseball, with 20 degree temperatures and stinging winds after a freakish Alabama snowstorm. At the home of arch-rival Jacksonville State, TSU’s record dipped to a chilling 12-9, 1-2 in the Gulf South Conference after losing the first game of a league doubleheader. James Wray, the ace of the staff, lasted five innings, surrendered five runs, and took the loss for an un-acely 2-3 record. After two innings of the second game, TSU trailed 8-0 and was staring down the barrel of a disgracefully early

exit from league contention. Forget about national championships and all that jazz. It would be nice to say the wind changed directions and grew suddenly warm, or the sun broke through the frozen clouds as TSU mounted its comeback. But no omens underscored the rally. The guys finally started getting the bat on the baseball. When the game ended, TSU had banged out a 13-9 win and was still alive in the GSC race. After the game, the prevalent emotion was weak-kneed relief, the kind one would find after surviving a bad car crash. If there was a turning point to the 1987 season, that was it. And come to think of it, the weather did warm up with TSU’s hitting and pitching. After that, nature began to burst with rebirth as Trojan hopes rose. It seemed like the rest of the team’s days were played on beautiful, shining spring days. Things began to turn around, but slowly. The team teetered on the brink. It survived one close call after another. But TSU always managed to scrape by. Toward the end of the regular season, the Trojans were a good baseball team, fulfilling half of Riddle’s prophecy. And like the old man said, if they make up their minds... The record was 20-10 on Easter Sunday, after Valdosta State demolished the Trojans, 10-2. It was the last loss the team would suffer. TSU caught fire and raced through the rest of the schedule undefeated, closing with a 15-game winning streak. Wray won his last six games in a row and began a streak of 36.2 consecutive scoreless innings, four straight shutouts, winding up a firstteam All-America. Not only was Wray honored, but first baseman Jude Rinaldi ended up swinging the meanest bat in school history. During 1987, he posted a .431 batting average, with 16 home runs and 45 runs batted in in 45 games. The team equaled all the achievements of the ‘86 squad, ripping through postseason play undefeated, collecting Gulf South Conference, South Central Region and national championships. The opponents, for the most part, were stunned that they had lost to these guys. How did they continue winning, game after game? The fact of the matter is, the second-time national champions weren’t as overwhelmingly talented as the great team of ‘86. They did not set records, they weren’t as deep in pitching, didn’t have the stunning speed or awesome power. They sure did not make winning look easy. But they did not fold, either. They did not break when things looked hopeless, and they delivered when it was all on the line. They fought every step of the way. They left claw marks all the way to the top of the heap.

Riddle-Pace Field & Riddle-Pace Lott Baseball Complex Field & Lott Baseball Complex After years of planning, fund-raising, sacrifices and hard work, the Troy University baseball program ushered in a new era on April 16, 2008, with the official opening of the Lott Baseball Complex. “This is another first at Troy University as we continue to move forward,” Athletics Director Steve Dennis said. “We are grateful to have such wonderful supporters in the Lott family and everyone who helped in making this project a success.” The late Jerry Lott was inducted into the Troy Baseball Hall of Fame in the fall of 2007. Mrs. Lott currently serves in many roles at Troy University, both as a current member of the Troy Planned Giving Council, and as a founding member of the Troy Shield Society. Mr. and Mrs. Lott, along with their children Mike and Janet, were instrumental in making the Lott Baseball Complex go from a mere vision to reality. The Lott Baseball Complex at Riddle-Pace Field is a state of the art baseball complex that rivals any in the nation. The new complex features indoor batting cages, new locker rooms for the players and umpires as well as a player lounge and meeting area. The facility also provides new offices for the Troy coaching staff. “We are very proud of our facility and very appreciative to those who helped us achieve this goal,” Trojan coach Bobby Pierce said. “This is a magnificent place and it is going to serve us well.” In addition to the Lott Complex, numerous upgrades were made to Riddle-Pace Field. Among the highlights is a new home dugout, built into the ground floor of the Lott Complex, a new home bullpen area and a new artificial playing surface. The new playing surface is now lit by a state-of-the art lighting system that provides the Trojans with the absolute best lighting for night games. No other college facility in the country can match the lighting availble at Riddle-Pace Field. The final touch is a new outfield wall that included a “monster” in right field and a state-of-the-art scoreboard and sound system built into the wall in right-center field. The wall in left field was lowered and future plans call construction behind the wall, creating a fan-friendly seating and tailgate area. The new playing surface gives the Trojans an opportunity to spend more time on the field, even on days where inclement weather would have, in the past, forced practice or games to be cancelled. The field drains water at an incredible rate of 10 inches per hour meaning that, in the future, rainouts of Troy home games will be a very rare occurance. The completion of the Lott Complex at Riddle-Pace Field, plans are in place for the next phase of improvements and removations that will take the facility to a level on par with the best college baseball facilities in the nation. Plans call for an expansion of seating down the rightfield line that will bring capacity to more than 4,000. The expanded seating will also include a new sunken dugout on the first base line that will match the home dugout as well as locker room space for visiting teams. Finally, the next phase calls for the construction of 12-15 luxury

sky boxes to give Troy baseball fans an opportunity to enjoy all the best amenities while cheering the Trojans to victory. As we continue to make improvements to Riddle-Pace Field all Trojan fans are needed to do their part to make this, and other, projects become a reality. By contributing to the Troy Baseball Capital Campaign, fans will be helping the University, the student-athletes and coaches achieve at the highest level of success possible. To contribute to the Troy University Baseball Capital Campaign contact the Atletics Department at 334-670-3482.

Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., a native of Mobile, Alabama, was named Chancellor of Troy University Sept. 1, 1989. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Montevallo and his doctorate from the University of Alabama.

Three buildings have been named in his honor: the “Jack and Janice Hawkins Chapel” at the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind, the “Hawkins-Adams-Long Hall of Honor” and “Jack Hawkins, Jr. Hall” which serves the College of Education of Troy University. Hawkins was profiled as part of two books published in 2004: “Above and Beyond: Former Marines Conquer the Civilian World” by Rudy Socha and Carolyn Darrow and “The Entrepreneurial College President” by James L. Fisher and James V. Koch.

Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree in 1967, Hawkins was commissioned a lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps and served as a platoon leader during the Vietnam War. For his combat duty, he received the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and a citation from the Korean Marine Corps.

Hawkins serves on the board of directors of the Business Council of Alabama, Better Business Bureau of Central Alabama, and Troy Bank and Trust Company. He is chairman of the Governor’s Committee on Employment of the Disabled, and the Air University Board of Visitors at Maxwell Air Force Base. He also serves as chairman of the Southern Association Colleges and Schools (SACS) Board of Directors and as President of the Sun Belt Conference Executive Committee. He has served on the Board of Directors of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), as Chairman of the Council of University Presidents in Alabama (19992001) and as President of the Southland Football League. He has also served as a trustee of Talladega College, the Helen Keller Eye Research Foundation, and the American Foundation for the Blind. He is a member of the Troy Rotary Club.

Hawkins has overseen an era of change and growth at TROY, as worldwide enrollment has more than doubled from 14,000 in 1989 to approximately 30,000 today. He led the merger of the worldwide Troy State University System into the unified Troy University, an initiative called “One Great University.” More than $200 million has been invested in capital improvements by the Hawkins Administration, including new academic buildings on all four of TROY’s Alabama campuses. Chancellor Hawkins served as the catalyst for the University’s evolution to an international institution, as TROY has attracted record numbers of students from other nations and established more than 60 teaching sites around the world. During his tenure, academic standards for admission have been increased, new degree programs were established in all academic colleges, and intercollegiate athletics joined the highest level of NCAA competition.

Dr. Hawkins’ family includes his wife, Janice, and daughters Katie and Kelly. Katie is married to Capt. Dan Beall of the United States Air Force and the couple has one son, Noah and a daughter, Ellyotte. Dr. and Mrs. Hawkins are members of the First Baptist Church of Troy.

Hawkins’ professional background includes his service as an assistant dean at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (1971-1979) and as president of the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind in Talladega (1979-1989). In 1985, he was honored by the University of Montevallo as Distinguished Alumnus of the Year, and was the recipient of the 2003 All-American Football Foundation’s “Top College President” Award. In 2005 he was inducted into the Hall of Fame of Murphy High School in Mobile, Alabama. In 2007 he was recognized as the “Alabama Citizen of the Year” by the Alabama Broadcasters Association. In 2011, Dr. Hawkins was recognized with the Chief Executive Leadership Award presented by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

Director of Athletics Steve Steve Dennis, AthleticDennis Director Steve Dennis is in his sixth year as the Director of Athletics for Troy University in 2010 and his tenure has been marked by continued growth of all of Troy’s athletics programs in the Sun Belt Conference and Division I.

Dennis came to the Troy family from Auburn University, where he served in a variety of capacities beginning in 1985. His final assignment was as the Associate Director of Tigers Unlimited, the Athletics Department’s Development office. In that position, he was responsible for identifying, cultivating and soliciting support from individuals, private industry and corporations for the Athletics Department.

Since his arrival at Troy in March of 2005 Dennis’ focus has been on the most important part of any athletics program, the studentathletes. Due to that emphasis Troy University student-athletes have led all members of the Sun Belt Conference, as well as all public institutions of higher education in Alabama, in Graduation Success Rate every year since his arrival.

A native of Macon, Ga., Dennis graduated from the University of Georgia, Cum Laude, in 1978. While at Georgia, he was the Bulldogs’ defensive captain in 1978 and was an Academic All-Southeastern Conference selection that same season. During his playing career, he played in three bowl games for the Bulldogs. His foundation as a student-athlete guides Dennis in his quest to take Troy athletics toward great things in the future.

Over his four years Troy University student-athletes have posted grade point averages of 3.0 or better for a year more than 600 times. That high academic standard led Troy to enjoy the highest level of success possible under the NCAA’s Academic Progress Report for the 2008-09 and the 2009-10 school years, with all 16 NCAA sports above the mandated 92.5 percent.

Dennis started his professional career as a high school teacher, football coach and baseball coach in Windsor (Ga.).

Troy University’s student-athletes have flourished on the field of play as well as in the class room. Troy’s baseball program has had 16 players drafted or signed to professional contracts while the football program has sent 24 players into professional football, including first-round draft picks DeMarcus Ware and Leodis McKelvin.

Dennis went to work as the defensive backs and special teams coach at Auburn in 1985, and he remained on the Tigers’ staff for eight seasons. He was named the SEC Working Coach of the Year in 1986 by The Birmingham Touchdown Club.

The Troy football program has been especially successful under the watchful eye of Steve Dennis. The Trojans have won four consecutive Sun Belt Conference titles and have appeared in three bowl games since his arrival as Director of Athletics. That success on the field has translated to success in the stands as Troy has led the Sun Belt Conference in football attendance in each of the last four seasons. The last five years have also been marked by construction and growth of Troy University’s athletics facilities. The soccer and track teams moved into a brand-new facility. Riddle-Pace Field underwent $5 million in renovations that included the construction of the Lott Baseball Complex. Veterans Memorial Stadium saw the addition of two new luxury boxes and construction is under way for a brand-new multipurpose arena that is expected to be open in time for the 2011-12 basketball season. Dennis has also shepherded the athletics department through NCAA certification and, at the same time, completed a five-year strategic plan for the program’s continued growth. Externally, Dennis was instrumental in the formation of the Trojan Warriors, the athletic department’s booster club, as well as “The Legion” a student support group. Both groups have grown to more than 500 members in a short time and continue to grow annually. The athletics department also entered into a marketing agreement with International Sports Properties of Winston-Salem, NC, an agreement that was just renewed in 2009. Other external accomplishments have included chartering the “T” Letterman’s Club as a chapter of the Troy University National Alumni Association and the establishment of the Al Lucas Endowment for Student-Athlete Excellence. Over the last five years the Troy Athletics Department has hosted numerous state and regional athletics events, including the Sun Belt Conference Softball Championship in 2008 and the SBC Baseball Championship in 2009. Other events have included Special Olympics, AHSAA and AISA championships.

He started his collegiate coaching career at the University of TennesseeChattanooga in 1981. In four-plus seasons, he coached outside linebackers, the defensive line and special teams for the Moccasins.

During his initial stint with the Tigers, he coached alongside current Troy head coach Larry Blakeney. Current Troy assistant coach Shayne Wasden, as well as former assistant coaches Mike Pelton and James Joseph, all played for the Tigers while Dennis served on the coaching staff. Dennis returned to his alma mater in December of 1993, and worked as the defensive backs and special teams coach for the Bulldogs for two seasons. From 1997 until 2002, Dennis was out of college athletics. He worked in sales, marketing and promotions for Georgia Southern Wood, Inc., serving in that role from 1997 until 2000. He then worked at Cleveland Brothers Construction from 2000 until 2002. Dennis returned to Auburn to coach tight ends in 2002, before moving to fundraising within the Auburn Athletics Department in 2003. During his college coaching career, he was part of seven bowl teams and one Division I-AA playoff team. Dennis and his wife, Lisa, have four children - Chris, Cale, Corey and Allison.
