THIS IS TROY BASEBALL Troy has been to six NCAA Regionals since moving to NCAA Division I in 1994. Overall, the Trojans have appeared in 19 NCAA Division I and Division II Regionals winning two NCAA National Championships (1986 & 1987).


SUN BELT CHAMPIONS • • • • • • •

Troy has won the Sun Belt Conference Championship twice in the last three seasons The Sun Belt placed four teams into NCAA Regionals in the 2013 season The Trojans have 395 wins since 2003, the most of any team in the league entering the 2014 season Troy led the league with four members on the All-Sun Belt First Team in 2013, including Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year Shane McCain The Trojans have appeared in four NCAA Regionals since joining the league in 2006, the most of any school in the conference The Sun Belt finished fifth in conference RPI in 2013, the league had four teams with 40+ wins In the last 12 years, the Sun Belt has finished in the top 10 of conference RPI 10 times


THE BOBBY PIERCE ERA Since taking over the Troy baseball program in 2003, Bobby Pierce has presided over a period of unprecedented growth in the Trojans baseball program. In his 11 seasons as head coach Troy has captured four conference titles, produced six national award winners, 14 All-Americans and sent 27 players to professional baseball. Pierce has coached 42 all-conference selections, including four Pitcher of the Years, 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. Fans of Troy baseball have flocked to Riddle-Pace Field, which saw a major renovation before the 2008 season. In the past nine seasons, Troy has set new team season records in 10 offensive and defensive categories.


• Alabama Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, 2010 • 395-256 record at the helm of the Troy program; 41 wins away from surpassing legendary head coach Chase Riddle’s school record • Led Troy to four NCAA Regional appearances • In 2013, guided Troy to its first-ever national ranking in a final poll • Holds a 220-91 (.707) record at Riddle-Pace Field • Coached six straight NCAA statistical champions (2004-2009) • Has guided Troy to 393 wins during his tenure, the most of any school in the state of Alabama • The Trojans have also earned the most wins of any member in the Sun Belt Conference during the time span • Coached three Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week (Logan Pierce; 2011, Tyler Vaughn, 2012; Danny Collins, 2013). • Led Troy to more NCAA Regional appearances than any school in the Sun Belt during his tenure


RIDDLE-PACE FIELD

Continued improvements to Riddle-Pace Field, along with the addition of the Lott Baseball Complex, give Troy University the top baseball facility in the Sun Belt Conference and one of the best in the nation. Original renovations to Riddle-Pace Field were completed in time for the 2002 season, with the latest phase of improvements made in time for the 2008 season. 2009 marked another landmark in the history of the facility as the Trojans hosted, for the first time, the Sun Belt Conference Championship Tournament. Riddle-Pace Field is a beautiful facility constructed of red brick and exposed steel beams, which complement the attractive architecture already found on the Troy University campus. The stadium was designed to ensure outstanding sightlines and comfort for fans, as well as meet the needs of the country’s finest college baseball players. Upon passing through two ticket booths, fans are greeted by a brick plaza at the base of the three-story press box. The first level houses restrooms, a concession stand and a merchandise booth. The second level is currently used for storage but can be transformed into office space. Level three contains a fully air-conditioned, state-of-the-art press box which features a 500-square foot media center, two 12x15 VIP suites with theatre-style seating, two restrooms and an elevator to provide access for disabled patrons and media.


The addition of the Lott Baseball Complex in 2008 includes locker room facilities for the Trojans, coaches offices, a new scoreboard with additional advertising opportunities, a covered batting cage and a new outfield wall. 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. 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 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 for 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 occurrence.


NATIONAL EXPOSURE It’s not hard to find the Trojans spotlighted in the national media. Troy has played twice on ESPNU in the last year and has graced the front pages of Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball and Perfect Game.

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 bit of an unknown entering the 2006 season. A transfer from South Carolina, King’s 35 doubles not only led the nation, but they also 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 not once, but 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.

2014 Troy University Baseball Media Guide


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 Trojan baseball program.

Troy Head Coach at Troy: 395-256 (11 Years) Overall: 930-459 (25 Years)

The Pierce File

The success of the program on the field is obvious. In his 11 seasons the Trojans have captured four conference titles, have been to four NCAA Regionals, produced six consecutive seasons with a national award winner, had 14 All-Americans and has sent 27 players on to professional baseball. In conference competition, the Trojans have produced 39 all-conference selections, including four players who earned Pitcher of the Year honors, two who earned Player of the Year, one who was named Newcomer of the Year and one named Freshman of the Year. In terms of team results, the Trojans led the nation in runs scored in 2006, doubles in 2013 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 nine years, the Trojans have set new team season records in 10 offensive and 10 pitching categories.

Coaching Accomplishments at Troy - Inducted into Alabama Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame

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 and has almost 50 percent of the squad achieving that standard on a regular basis. One of the highlights of Pierce’s tenure at Troy was the first team Academic All-America honor earned by Kevin Weidlich in 2007. 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 among the top venues in college baseball.

- Led the Trojans to four NCAA Regional appearances

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.

- Coached 14 All-Americans & 27 players who have signed professional contracts

When Pierce first arrived on the Troy University campus in 2003, he had a plan for the future of the Trojans’ baseball program.

- Coached six consecutive national award winners (2004-09)

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.

- Averaged 36 wins a season

- Won four Sun Belt Conference championships (2005, 2007, 2011, 2013) - Has coached four Pitchers of the Year (2005, 2006, 2011, 2013), two Players of the Year (2005, 2011), one Newcomer of the Year (2007) and one Freshman of the Year (2009)

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

- Two-time Sun Belt Coach of the Year (2006 & 2011) and the 2011 ACBA South Central Region Coach of the Year

Coaching Accomplishments

- Averaged 37 wins a season over 25 seasons as head coach - Led Alabama-Huntsville to five straight NCAA Regional appearances - Has had just one losing season in 25 years - Was the youngest coach in Florida junior college history when he took the Chipola College job at 23-years old

2014 Troy University Baseball Media Guide


Bobby Pierce Conference. 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 program’s 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 competi-

tion 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 team’s 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

Bobby Pierce with 117 total hits, joining Moore and Godwin as national leaders. 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 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. 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 bullseye 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 chock 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. 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. 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.

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. 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 and 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 Pitcher 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. Pierce had maybe his toughest coaching job in 2012 as his team was decimated by injuries. The Trojans persevered and won their final four Sun Belt Conference series of the season and five of the final six Sun Belt series of the year. Troy finished 2-1 in its pool at the Sun Belt Tournament to finish as the pool co-champion. Pierce’s son Logan earned All-Sun Belt First Team honors at first base while relief pitchers Thomas Austin and Nate Hill had great seasons. Hill set the Troy singleseason appearances record and Austin finished second in the league among relievers with a 2.80 ERA. In 2013, the Trojans were primed for a bounce-back season following the first losing campaign in Pierce’s career at Troy. The team reeled off a 42-20 record and claimed a share of the Sun Belt Conference regular season title by taking two of three games from rival South Alabama on the road in the final series of the season. Troy won 13 of 15 games from mid-April to mid-May sweeping conference foes Arkansas-Little Rock and Florida International. The Trojans earned an at-large bid to the Tallahassee Regional where the team defeated Alabama twice to end the Crimson Tide’s season. Florida State would ultimately beat Troy in the Regional Finals. Following the season, Pierce’s son, Logan, was drafted in the 15th round of the MLB Draft by the Philadelphia Phillies. Trae Santos and Danny Collins were also selected in the draft while Brandon Brown was later signed as a free agent.

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

Bobby Pierce 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. 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 among 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. Pierce served on the Division II All-America Committee in each of his last two years at UAH. 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 tournament championship game four times. He was named the GSC’s 2001 Coach of the Year after helping the Chargers finish 41-17 and earn a top 10 national ranking. 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 (27), a Troy University graduate, Lauren (26) and Logan (24), a senior 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.

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. Because of its status as a member of the Football Bowl Subdivision, the Sun Belt Conference has a permanent seat on the NCAA’s 18-member Board of Directors. As a result, the conference has a crucial voice on some of the most pressing issues in college athletics and will always have a role in the implementation of any future NCAA legislation and guidelines. 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 2012 that results in unprecedented national coverage for the league. Fans of the Sun Belt Conference can look forward to seeing more Sun Belt teams playing on national television on ESPN and ESPN2 and additionally the ESPN deal will result in more coverage on ESPNU. ESPN will continue to televise the conference’s men’s basketball championship game for the 32nd straight season in 2013, 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 softball to the conference’s television package has resulted in more national and regional television exposure for the league than at any time in its history. The Sun Belt Conference has sent at least two teams to the NCAA Baseball Tournament in 23 of the last 24 seasons. Additionally, the league has sent three or more teams to the NCAAs in eight of the last 14 seasons.

History & Records

2013 Sun Belt Conference Champions

79


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.

1985

1980

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.

1987

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.

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 Paterson 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 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.

NE Illinois upset Troy, 8-7, in the first round when it scored the winning run on an eighth-inning error.

Troy TroyBaseball Baseball History 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.

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.

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.

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.

2006

Mother nature intervened on Troy’s 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 Louisiana-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 lightning 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 struck out and UNO got a homer in extra innings to down Troy and end the Trojans’ season.

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 The 2006 squad took the Sun Belt by storm as it posted a 20-4 mark ended Troy’s season. to win the title in Troy’s first season in the league Troy’s 47-16 overall record was

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.


Troy Baseball Troy BaseballHistory history 2010 The Trojans came within one game of reaching its fifth NCAA Re-

gional 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 appearance. Troy’s success in the tournament shouldn’t have come as 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, 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 dog pile 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.

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 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 season 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 ball club...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.

Legendary Coach Chase Riddle

Above: Riddle watches the final inning of Mike Perez’s complete-game one-hitter over Columbus College in the 1986 NCAA Championship game. Below: Riddle is carried off the field following Troy’s 5-0 victory over Columbus College in the 1986 title game. Left: Riddle’s No. 25 was retired on April 13, 1991.

Between 1979 and 1990, while Chase Riddle roamed the dugouts and coaches boxes of Pace Field, the Troy State baseball program rose from regional obscurity to national powerhouse. Riddle finished as the winningest coach in school history -- in any sport -- with 434 wins. His overall record of 434-147-2, a .744 winning percentage, ranked him among the top 10 Division II coaches in winning percentage. His legacy continues as the Trojans walk through the gates of RiddlePace Field each day. Riddle was also inducted into the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame as part of the inaugural class in 2012.

His teams won two national championships (and narrowly missed out on three others), six regional titles and captured five Gulf South Conference crowns. He was named Coach of the Year in 1986 and 1987 and nabbed Regional Coach of the Year awards in GSC GSC NCAA NCAA National 1980, 1981, 1982, 1985, 1986 and 1987. Year Overall Home GSC Tourn.

Chase Riddle’s Record Year-by-Year

His teams won 71.2 percent of their conference games (92-37-1) and had an .809 winning percentage at TSU’s Pace Field (253-59-1). His teams were 36-18 in NCAA post-season play, including an amazing 24-10 mark in regional play and a 12-8 record at the College World Series. Three of Riddle’s teams won more than 40 games and four more won at least 35 games. He produced 10 first-team All-Americans, 30 total All-America and 36 first-team All-Gulf South Conference performers.

Riddle-Pace Field & Lott Baseball Complex

Continued improvements to Riddle-Pace Field, along with the addition of the Lott Baseball Complex, give Troy University the top baseball facility in the Sun Belt Conference and one of the best in the nation. Original renovations to Riddle-Pace Field were completed in time for the 2002 season, with the latest phase of improvements made in time for the 2008 season. 2009 marked another landmark in the history of the facility as the Trojans hosted, for the first time, the Sun Belt Conference Championship Tournament. Riddle-Pace Field is a beautiful facility constructed of red brick and exposed steel beams, which complement the attractive architecture already found on the Troy University campus. The stadium was designed to ensure outstanding sightlines and comfort for fans, as well as meet the needs of the country’s finest Top 25 Crowds (Division 1) college baseball players.

The addition of the Lott Baseball Complex in 2008 includes locker room facilities for the Trojans, coaches offices, a new scoreboard with additional advertising opportunities, a covered batting cage and a new outfield wall. Prior to 2002, the last major renovation to the stadium came prior to the 1991 season when the infield was dug up, leveled and rebuilt with new sod and a complete irrigation system. Prior to that, Triple-A quality lighting was installed in time for the 1987 campaign.

Riddle-Pace Field & Lott Baseball Complex After years of planning, fundraising, 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. 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 available 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 for 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 occurrence. Since the completion of the Lott Complex at Riddle-Pace Field, plans are in place for the next phase of improvements and renovations 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 right-field 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 Athletics Department at 334-670-3482.

JOHN HARTWELL

John Hartwell, Athletic Director LIDS), concessions (Centerplate), wireless provider (C Spire) and video boards (Daktronics). He served on the Southeastern Conference Ticket Committee and was a leader of the annual SEC Chief Financial Officers Forum.

Athletic Director 2nd Year The Citadel, ‘87

A 1987 graduate of The Citadel, Hartwell spent four-plus years as a certified public accountant with Ernst & Young before returning to his alma mater to serve as the director of internal audit in 1991. In his three years working at The Citadel, Hartwell also was the basketball color commentator for the Citadel Network. From 1994 to 1997 he was in private business as the chief financial officer for a $36 million beverage distributor on the South Carolina coast.

Introduced as Troy University’s new athletic director on Oct. 1, 2012, John Hartwell has already laid the groundwork for the future of Troy Athletics. In his brief time at Troy, Hartwell, 48, has spearheaded the beginning of several upgrades to Troy’s athletic facilities. The Troy golf program broke ground on an six-hole, on-campus practice facility that will also include a state-of-the-art clubhouse. Troy will soon break ground on an overhaul of the Troy Softball Complex and a renovation of the Lunsford Tennis Complex is scheduled in the near future. Alongside football head coach Larry Blakeney and former Trojan Lawrence Tynes, Hartwell unveiled to the Trojan Nation “The Future of Troy Athletics” with the breathtaking North End Zone Project for Veterans Memorial Stadium. The building, which is estimated to cost between $25-28 million, will catapult Troy to the forefront of the arms race in college football. In his first year as athletic director, Troy’s baseball team won the Sun Belt Conference title and advanced to the regional final of the Tallahassee Regional after defeating Alabama twice. Nicolo Bolla earned All-America honors in the hammer throw, Danny Collins and Logan Pierce were both named to baseball All-America teams, and Tyler Vaughn was named to the Capital One Academic All-America First Team. Troy’s overall APR score began to trend upwards during Hartwell’s first year in leadership. Additionally, a record number of Troy student-athletes earned a 3.0 grade-point-average during the 2012-13 academic year. Hartwell also hired one of the bright young minds in college basketball in Phil Cunningham to guide the men’s basketball program following the retirement of legendary head coach Don Maestri. Hartwell came to Troy following nine years at the University of Mississippi where he was the senior executive associate athletics director, serving as the number two administrator in athletics.

Har twell’s direct experience in athletics administration began as the assistant athletic director for business at Georgia State in 1997. He was promoted to associate athletic director for internal affairs in 1999, and his responsibilities expanded to include sport supervision for baseball, men’s & women’s golf, men’s & women’s track & field and cross country. He also had oversight over the Panthers’ athletic facilities and game management in addition to his previous responsibilities of all financial aspects of the department. He also was the color analyst for men’s basketball on the Georgia State Radio Network for the first three years he was at GSU. While at Georgia State, Hartwell earned a master’s degree in sports administration. Athletics has always been a big part of Hartwell’s life, starting in high school where he was an all-state basketball selection at UMS-Wright in Mobile, Ala. The 6-foot-7 forward played alongside current North Carolina State head coach Mark Gottfried in high school. Hartwell went on to play collegiately at The Citadel, where he was a three-year starter, a four-year letterman and captain of the team as a senior in 1987. Current Tulane head coach Ed Conroy was a collegiate teammate of Hartwell’s. Hartwell is married to Dr. Heather Seale Hartwell, and they have two daughters Lauren (5), and Madison (1). Hartwell also has a son, Hunter (21), who is a senior at Vanderbilt.

“At the end of the day, our vision is a constant commitment to a maximum effort for three things,” Hartwell said at his introductory press conference. “Academic excellence, positive social development and winning championships.” Hartwell served as the treasurer and chief operating officer of the University of Mississippi Athletic Association Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization that generates over $17 million annually for the Ole Miss Athletics Department through priority seating and major gifts. He was responsible for the day-to-day administrative oversight of the football, men’s basketball and baseball programs, along with sport oversight of the softball and men’s and women’s track & field and cross country programs.
