2014 SEASON PREVIEW

The 2013 edition of the UAB baseball team celebrates its victory against in-state foe Alabama. It marked the squad’s fifth-straight triumph against the Crimson Tide. Coming off its third consecutive appearance in the Conference USA Tournament and only two seasons removed from an NCAA Regional, the future is bright for the UAB baseball program. In addition to those recent successes, the squad will be playing its first season at Regions Field, located in downtown Birmingham. “We are thrilled to play at Regions Field,” Shoop said of the ballpark that opened in April 2013. “We think it will help the fan experience and make the overall game presentation better. You can’t help but be excited for the opportunity to play in this facility.” “We love playing at Young Memorial and are grateful for Young Memorial,” added Shoop. “We are excited to continue to play a portion of our home season at our traditional campus site, as well.” Twenty-one home games to be played at Regions Field, a four-game series at the University of Hawaii, and a 30-game Conference USA slate highlight the 2014 UAB baseball schedule. The UAB baseball team opens the season with a three-game series against UT-Martin at Regions Field beginning on Friday, Feb. 14. The Blazers will host Alabama A&M, Youngstown State, Arkansas State, Conference USA-foe Middle Tennessee State, and Jacksonville State in its first month of action, as well. Prior to sinking its teeth into conference play, UAB will travel to Honolulu for a four-game set with Hawaii, starting on Thursday, March 20. The squad played in the Aloha State during the 2008 season. “We have tried to go to Hawaii every four or five years, so just about every recruit would get to go there one time,” commented Shoop. “The kids are 8

thrilled. The University of Hawaii is an outstanding opponent. They play in a great venue. They are always in the top 20 in attendance. They don’t call it paradise for nothing. This is certainly business, but it’s also, for many kids, a once in a lifetime experience.” The Blazers will play its annual home-and-home series with in-state foe Alabama and travel to Auburn in non-conference action. Auburn will return in 2015, as the two clubs will faceoff at Regions Field. The Green and Gold face the challenge of a new-look Conference USA in 2014, as well. Charlotte, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Louisiana Tech, Middle Tennessee State, Old Dominion, and UTSA will all embark on their inaugural campaigns in the conference. Despite adding four more programs to the league, the conference tournament format will remain the same, as the top eight teams will qualify for postseason play. “The realignment of conferences affects every sport a little differently,” said Shoop. “For baseball, time will tell. Many of these teams we have never played. Speaking on what I expect more than what I have experienced, we think, not only has this been a great baseball league, it will continue to be a great baseball league. You can almost make an argument that maybe it is stronger.” “Since I have been here, we have had nine teams competing for eight spots in the conference tournament,” stated Shoop. “It would be very competitive for who the seventh and eighth team would be, up until the last weekend, many up until the last game. This year, we have 13 teams competing for eight spots. We have said all of these years that a good team would not play in our conference tournament. Probably five good teams will not play in our conference tournament this year. We certainly are approaching things with hopes and intents of being one of the eight.” B l a z e r s

Arguably its biggest loss will be John Frost who was a first-team All-Conference USA performer at third base. Redshirt junior Tyler Mims will look to be behind the dish for the Blazers this season. Mims played first base for the team on every day basis last year, but will transition to the catcher role in 2014. Sophomore Mitch Williams and true freshman Holt Davis are also vying for time behind the plate. With Mims moving to catcher, a void has been presented at first base. Junior Jeff Schalk will look to take on the task of playing first base and generating some power in the Blazers’ lineup. “Jeff Schalk is incredibly capable,” said Shoop. “We really need Jeff to play to the level we know he is certainly capable of. We need him to drive in runs and hit in the middle of our lineup.” Kelley also has experience at first base and could see time there, as well.

Senior Ryan Prinzing led Conference USA in on-base percentage for the 2013 season and is the Blazers’ leading returning hitter.

Redshirt junior Tyler Hamby gained key experience last season at second base and started the majority of games there at the end of 2013. True freshman Tripp Coble is challenging for the spot, too.

Pitching

At shortstop, redshirt junior Matt Morse and sophomore Adam Smith are vying for the position. Morse has played in more than 50 games in his collegiate career, while Smith is in his first season as a member of the Blazers.

“We feel really good, if we are healthy, about our pitching depth and options,” said Shoop. “That was a weakness for us last year and the numbers bare that out. We think our pitching staff can be our strength this year.”

There are several options for UAB in its quest to replace Frost. Junior-college transfer Nathan Vincent looks to be the front-runner in this race.

Senior right-handed pitcher Chase Mallard figures to be a key piece of the 2014 UAB pitching staff. The senior pitcher was the first pitcher on the mound for the Blazers in the 2013 Conference USA Tournament.

“We signed as talented of a guy that I can remember in Nathan Vincent,” commented Shoop. “He needs to be in our lineup because he can change a game. He could play a tremendous role for our club because he does everything. He hits, throws, hits for power, and runs.”

“He has pitched a ton of innings,” commented Shoop. “He has pitched more out of the bullpen than he has started. He has been in every role you can be in. He will be in a role. He is going to be a central piece. The great thing about Chase, he is willing to do anything.”

Sophomore Evan Peterson and redshirt freshmen Jacob Armstrong and Matthew Furuto are also vying for the spot and other spots in the infield.

Junior Alex Luna came on strong for the Blazers during the final stretch of the 2013 campaign. The Huntsville, Ala. native earned Conference USA Pitcher of the Week accolades after tossing a complete-game shutout against Alabama State on April 24.

The 2014 UAB baseball team brings back a wealth of experience in its outfield and will look for the three men patrolling the alleys to be a strength in the upcoming year.

“Alex Luna finished very strong last year for us,” stated Shoop. “He won the last game of the year in the 2013 Conference USA Tournament against UCF and had a good summer. We think he will be in a very big role.” Both redshirt senior Ben Bullard and redshirt sophomore Dylan Munger are looking to come back from injuries in 2014. Bullard ranks among the best Blazer pitchers of all time, while Munger is an emerging ace on the mound. Munger was the 2012 California Collegiate League Most Valuable Pitcher. “Losing Bullard and Munger last year was tough for us to overcome,” added Shoop. “If we get them both back, they would both play a huge role in some capacity for us.” Redshirt junior Johnny Lieske, a transfer from Heartland CC, will look to join the starting rotation in his first season in Birmingham. Last season, the right-handed pitcher was a junior college All-American.

Outfield/Designated Hitter

“We have a lot of talented players,” stated Shoop. “These kids are capable and will have an opportunity to play a role on this team.” Senior Ryan Prinzing, UAB’s first Academic All-American, will see some time in the outfield, but will mostly be used as the designated hitter. Prinzing led the team in batting average, runs scored, home runs, and on-base percentage in 2013. “He is our leading returning hitter,” commented Shoop. “He is a tough competitive at bat. He will give you a good at bat over and over again.” Classmate Ivan De Jesus is poised for a memorable senior-sendoff. The San Juan, Puerto Rico native ranks seventh in program history in triples and will look to leave his mark on the Blazers’ program. Junior Chase Davis and sophomore Adam Lau both saw playing time last season and figure to be key parts of the 2014 outfield.

Redshirt junior left-handed pitcher Sam Kelley made 11 starts in 2013 and is in the mix for a starting role this season. Senior left-handed pitcher Turner Lee also brings back experience as starting pitcher for the Blazers.

Redshirt sophomore Griffin Gum saw extended time at the end of last season and will look to capitalize of the experience in 2014.

Cory Eller, Adam Lau, Cameron Rose, and Ruben Tresgallo all saw time out of the bullpen for the 2013 squad. The quartet, each with a year of experience under their belt, figures to be key for the Blazers this season.

“Griffin Gum ended up in the lineup last year as a redshirt freshman, primarily due to all the injuries we had,” said Shoop “That time did him wonders. He has tremendous potential and is a guy you want on the field.”

#7 BRIAN SHOOP Head Coach • Eighth Season Malone (Ohio) College, 1980 Entering his eighth season at the helm of the UAB baseball program, head coach Brian Shoop continues to have the Blazers succeed both on and off the playing field.

The Shoop File Coaching Experience 2007 - Present............................... UAB (HC) 1990-2006..Birmingham-Southern (HC) 1983-89...................Mississippi State (AC) 1981-82.....................................Malone (AC)

Last season, Shoop guided the UAB baseball team to its third consecutive appearance in the Conference USA Tournament. For the seventh straight season, the Blazers topped a nationally ranked program, as UAB defeated No. 18 Rice, 10-9, on May 3, 2013. John Frost became the seventh Blazer to earn All-Conference USA First Team honors under Shoop’s watch. Off the field, Ryan Prinzing became the first member of the UAB baseball program to earn Academic All-America honors. Shoop led the Blazers on a historic run in 2012, guiding the Green and Gold to its first-ever Conference USA Tournament Championship and second NCAA appearance in program history.

In 2012, UAB finished the regular season as the No. 7 seed in the Conference USA Tournament field. The Blazers advanced to the championship game by knocking off nationally ranked UCF and Tulane before shutting out Memphis, 5-0, to capture the league’s tournament crown as the lowest seed to ever win the championship. The 2012 Blazers joined the 1991 squad as the second team to compete in the NCAA Tournament. His first seven seasons have been marked by significant improvements on the diamond and a high standard of success both in the classroom, in competition, and giving back to the community. Shoop guided UAB to four consecutive winning seasons, marking the longest stretch of finishing above .500 since a span from 1995-98. UAB put together a 32-win season in 2012, the most in program history since 1996. The Blazers have finished with 30-plus wins in two of the last five seasons. In 2012, the Blazers earned four wins against top-20 ranked programs and have defeated 19 nationally ranked team over the past seven seasons. UAB opened 2012 by defeating then-No. 16 Clemson on the road in the season opener. Later in the year, the Blazers defeated UCF on two occasions, when the Knights were ranked 14th in the regular season and 16th in the Conference USA tournament, along with then No. 5 Rice.

Head coach Brian Shoop is one of the winningest active coaches in Division I baseball.

In 2010, the Blazers finished in a three-way tie for fifth place in the Conference USA standings, just one game out of third place, and three games out of second. The Blazers just missed the 30-win plateau during the 2011 campaign, ending the year at 29-28 and advanced to the league tournament. The Blazers have advanced to the conference tournament six times in the past seven seasons under the watch of Shoop. In 2010, Shoop’s Blazers won series against then-No. 4 Rice and eventual College World Series participant Southern Miss. The 2010 season was historic for Shoop in terms of milestone victories. The Blazer skipper earned his 100th UAB victory April 6, 2010 at Alabama and picked up his 800th career victory May 14, 2010 against Tulane. After earning the Conference USA Tournament crown, Shoop had six players named to the conference All-Tournament team. Prior to 2012, UAB had only five players ever named to the league’s postseason all-tournament squad. All-Tournament selections included Ryan Nance, Chase Mallard, John Frost, Jeff Schalk, Keith DePew, and MVP Michael Busby. Schalk was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team in 2012, while both DePew and Nance earned the nod on the conference All-Academic team. Four Blazers earned All-Conference recognition in 2011, led by first-team selection Jamal Austin. Teammates Nick Crawford, Dillon Napoleon and Ryan Woolley earned second-team honors, while John Frost was named to the Conference USA All-Tournament Team. Napoleon also earned the conference’s Newcomer of the Year award, the first Blazer to ever earn the honor. Following the conclusion of the 2011 season, both Austin and Woolley were selected in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. Both players were selected in the 13th round with Austin going to the Seattle Mariners and Woolley being picked by the Detroit Tigers. The selections marked the second and third highest draft picks in program history, behind only Chris Hammond was drafted in the sixth round by the Cincinnati Reds in 1986. Under the guidance of Shoop, 11 UAB players have gone on to play in the How Shoop Ranks professional ranks, including Patrick Palmeiro off the 2012 UAB team.

Since Shoop took over the program in 2007, UAB has racked up 21 All-Conference honors. That season, the Blazers immediately improved from an eighth-place Conference USA finish the previous year to a three-way tie for fourth place, marking the best finish for the program since 1998. A year later, Shoop coached Ryan Keedy to third-team All-American status. Keedy turned in one of the best statistical seasons in UAB history in 2008, leading Conference USA with a .423 batting average and setting a school record with 29 doubles. The eventual 16th-round draft pick of the Chicago Cubs also blasted 10 home runs and drove in 69 runs.

The 2008 season was also highlighted by the Blazers’ academic success. UAB earned the Conference USA Sport Academic award for baseball after posting a team GPA of 3.06 for the 2007-08 academic year. The team has continued its success in the classroom with 24 players earning a GPA of 3.0 or better in at least one semester last year. In 2009, UAB pitcher James Oliver was named the Conference USA Scholar-Athlete of the Year for baseball and in 2012 Keith DePew was named UAB’s top

#7 BRIAN SHOOP senior student-athlete.

Shoop’s Year-By-Year Record

Through seven seasons as the head coach, Shoop has had 126 players named to the Conference USA Commissioner’s honor roll for compiling a 3.0 GPA or better, while 31 student-athletes have earned the league’s academic medial for totaling a 3.75 GPA or better. Shoop’s squads have compiled team GPA’s of over 3.0 in five of seven seasons. Since arriving at UAB, Shoop has tallied 194 wins to put him seven wins away from 900 victories for his career. The 24-year coaching veteran and member of the Alabama Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame owns a career record of 893-512-1 (.635). Shoop was appointed as the head coach of the UAB baseball program on June 12, 2006 by Interim Director of Athletics Richard Margison. Shoop came to UAB after serving 17 seasons at the helm of the Birmingham-Southern program, where he compiled a record of 699-300-1 (.700). In November 2008, the school inducted Shoop into its Sports Hall of Fame. The winningest coach all-time at Birmingham-Southern, Shoop won 40 games or more nine times, including an eight-year run from 1994-2001 that was capped off with a 55-win season. He finished with at least 32 wins in 16 of his 17 years at the school with his only sub32-win season coming in his first campaign back in 1990. Whether at Birmingham-Southern or now at UAB, Shoop is quick to recognize the contributions of his assistant coaches and their impact on his programs.

“What a blessing it is every day to come to work with our incredible staff,” Shoop said. “Perry (Roth), Josh (Hopper), Ben (Drust) and Coach (Ron) Polk are an incredible group possessing so much baseball knowledge they daily pass along to our players. But they are even better people, fun to work beside, and they provide a tremendous example to the young men we have the privilege of coaching. Interacting daily with our staff, our support staff and our players makes working at UAB a true joy.”

With the move to UAB, Shoop found himself in one of the toughest conferences in the nation. The conference season has always been a time when his teams have shined in the past, capturing a remarkable 209 victories in league play at Birmingham-Southern. Under Shoop, the Panthers claimed the Big South regular season championship in two of his last three years at Birmingham-Southern (2004 and 2006). His 2004 squad earned a berth in the NCAA Athens Regional following a 47-18 season that made him the recipient of the 2004 Big South Conference Coach of the Year award as well as the ABCA Coach of the Year honor. When speaking of recruiting the finest talent in the country, Shoop believes UAB is a premier institution to attract quality young men and players. “When I took the job here, a lot of people would say that I’d have to lower my standards in what we were looking for in young men, and I kept saying, `Why?’” Shoop said. “We have a 14-point plan and we try to stick to that. We graduated 67 straight players at Birmingham-Southern, and I’m fully committed to these kids getting their UAB degree. “We try to be pretty thorough through interviews, and I hope that we’re not compromising character for ability. We have a higher expectation of our guys off the field than on the field, and we want the school and community to view the UAB baseball program as a source of pride. My experience is that winning has been a by-product of doing things the right way.” Shoop’s goal is to instill a winning tradition at UAB that stems from the philosophy of building a well-rounded team. “We’re trying to recruit a pitching staff that gives us a chance to win, and we put a very high value on defense,” he said. “We’ll try and recruit a balanced offense. I don’t really want sluggers like the `Bronx Bombers’ one through nine. I want a combination offense that has a balance between bunting, running and power. I want to be able to attack the game in multiple ways. We want mentally tough guys who are hard workers, and we also try to recruit good families. What their moms and dads are like is important to us.” At Birmingham-Southern, Shoop’s teams averaged 41 wins a season and captured nine regular season conference titles and eight league tournament championships. He led his squads to 10 regional appearances and finished no worse than third, with three runner-up finishes and four regional titles. The Panthers were ranked in the final NAIA poll in 10 of Shoop’s first 12 seasons, including eight top-10 rankings and four top-five finishes. In 2006, his final season with the Panthers marked the 16th straight winning season for Birmingham-Southern as his team finished 33-22. In 2001, Birmingham-Southern’s final year of NAIA competition, Shoop led the Panthers to a school-record 55 wins on the way to claiming the NAIA National Championship, the program’s first-ever national title. Shoop was named the 2001 NAIA National Coach of the Year and Region XI coach of the year from the ABCA. Following the Panthers’ run to the 2001 national championship, Shoop was selected to greet President George W. Bush at the Birmingham International Airport during his visit to Alabama and the “Magic City.”

#7 BRIAN SHOOP inducted into the Malone (Ohio) College Athletic Hall of Fame. Before running the Birmingham-Southern program, Shoop served as an assistant coach at Mississippi State under legendary head coach Ron Polk. Over a seven-year span (1983-89), he helped the Bulldogs win three Southeastern Conference (SEC) championships and earn six regional appearances with a College World Series appearance in 1985. During his tenure in Starkville, Shoop coached Major League Baseball standouts Will Clark, Rafael Palmeiro, Jeff Brantley, and Bobby Thigpen and was instrumental in recruiting some of the top players in America. Shoop has also helped to develop some of the game’s top NCAA Division I coaches in Matt Bragga (head coach, Tennessee Tech), Bob Keller (assistant coach, South Alabama), Daron Schoenrock (head coach, Memphis), and Butch Thompson (assistant coach, Mississippi State), to name a few. “It has been a blessing and privilege to work with coach Shoop,” said UAB assistant Perry Roth. “He is, in my opinion, the best coach in all of America. He is incredibly organized and prepared and thinks the game at a different level. What truly separates him is his love for his players and his faith. When you have an opportunity to be around him, you can’t help but grow as a coach and grow as a person.” An Ohio native, Shoop began his coaching career at his alma mater, Malone (Ohio) College, where he was an All-District performer. Malone was the Ohio NAIA champion in each of Shoop’s six years as a player and coach. He earned a double degree in physical education and business/economics from Malone and a master’s degree in sports administration from Kent State University. He has also completed his doctoral course work in educational leadership at Mississippi State. Shoop and his wife, Brenda, reside in Birmingham and have five children: Scott, Emily, Hannah, and twins Sarah and Jesse.

Shoop addresses the media following a game at the 2012 NCAA Tallahassee Regional.

#4 PERRY ROTH Assistant Coach/Recruiting Coordinator • Eighth Season Greenville (Ill.) College, 1997 Perry Roth is now in his eighth season as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at UAB and is no stranger to the teachings of Brian Shoop, having worked under him for three seasons at Birmingham-Southern before making the move to UAB in 2006. Roth’s responsibilities include hitting instruction as well as working with the Blazers’ catchers and playing a vital role in the program’s recruiting efforts.

The Roth File Coaching Experience 2007 - Present............................... UAB (AC) 2005-06.......Birmingham-Southern (AC) 2004 ...........................................Bradley (AC) 2003 .............Birmingham-Southern (AC) 2000-02............................Illinois State (AC) 1998-99..............Springfield Calvary (HC) 1996-97................................Greenville (AC)

As hitting coach, Roth has guided the Blazers to some impressive offensive numbers in his seven years with the program. He made an immediate impact on the Blazer bats in 2007, helping UAB improve from a .267 team batting average the previous year to a .296 mark. That rise continued the next season as the 2008 team hit .311 and featured nine players better than .300 individually. One of those players Roth tutored was All-American Ryan Keedy, who turned in one of the best statistical seasons in program history with a .423 batting average and a school-record 29 doubles.

Under Roth’s guidance in 2009, the UAB offense set school records with 461 runs scored and 129 doubles as the Blazers again proved themselves as one of the top hitting teams in Conference USA. The team also cracked the top 10 in the school’s single-season team record book for RBI (406, 2nd), walks (284, 3rd), home runs (58, 6th), hits (605, 9th), and batting average (.305, 10th). Roth has coached 13 players to All-Conference honors in his seven seasons at UAB, including 2013 first-team selection John Frost. Roth also coached Luke Stewart, who in 2010 was an All-League selection, connecting for 21 home runs and tied the UAB all-time record with 49 in his three-year career. In 2012, Jeff Schalk was named to the league’s All-Freshman Team. In addition, the UAB offense really stepped up during the historic run in 2012, hitting .333 as a team during the Conference USA Tournament and drawing more walks (24) than strikeouts (18) during the four-game stretch in Peal, Miss. The Blazers saw three offense players named to the league’s All-Tournament Team in Jeff Schalk, John Frost, and Keith DePew as the Blazers captured the 2012 Conference USA Tournament Championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1991.

Roth has coached 13 Blazers to All-Conference USA honors in his seven seasons on campus.

Behind the plate, Roth has worked with a pair of Blazer catchers who earned All-Conference honors, Danny Sawyer (2007) and Digger Towe (2009). In 2010, freshman catcher Jacob German threw out 32.4 percent of potential base stealers to lead all Conference USA catchers. Those numbers have been amongst the league’s best over the the past two seasons as well, as the duo of German and Harry Clark threw out 46.9 percent in 2011 and 37.7 percent in 2012. Roth came to UAB from Birmingham-Southern following the 2006 campaign. In his final season at Birmingham-Southern, the Panthers had a team batting average of .298, while hitting 52 home runs and driving in 96 more runs than their counterparts. In 2005, Birmingham-Southern’s Adam Tucker led the Big South Conference in home runs (25) and was second in RBI (73) and total bases (167). Tucker won the NCAA statistical championship for home runs per game, and Florida’s Matt LaPorta hit a home run in the College World Series championship series to edge him out in total home runs. Before re-joining Shoop’s staff at Birmingham-Southern, Roth spent one season at Bradley where he helped guide the Braves’ offense to a .301 team batting average. The team improved in virtually every offensive category upon his arrival, scoring 115 more runs than the previous season, while three Braves hitters received All-Missouri Valley Conference honors, including 2004 MVC batting average leader Jon Smith. In 2003, Roth had his first stint with Shoop at Birmingham-Southern, serving as the Panthers’ first base coach. That season, the team posted a 35-16 record in its final year of provisional NCAA membership. In the summer of 2003, Roth led his Athletes in Action team to a runner-up finish in the Alaska Baseball League and a berth in the National Baseball Congress World Series. “Off the field, Perry and I are also coming from the same page,” Shoop said. “Coaching is our ministry and our chance to mentor young men and hopefully make a positive difference in their lives. Perry is doing a great job for the UAB baseball program.” Before arriving at Birmingham-Southern for the first time, Roth spent three years as an assistant coach at Illinois State from 2000-02, where he served as the team’s hitting and outfield coach in addition to his responsibilities as the program’s recruiting coordinator. From 1998-99, he served as the head coach of Springfield Calvary Academy right after being an assistant coach at his alma mater, Greenville College, from 1996-98. As a player, Roth was a two-time letterwinner at Greenville. Both in 1990 and 1991, Roth and his Greenville teammates reached the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) championship. Roth graduated from Greenville with a B.S. in physical education in 1997 and he currently resides in Birmingham.

#13 JOSH HOPPER Assistant Coach • Fifth Season Berry (Ga.) College, 1999 Josh Hopper enters his fifth season with the Blazers in 2014. He joined the UAB baseball staff as pitching coach in July 2009 after spending the previous five seasons as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Berry College in Rome, Ga.

The Hopper File Coaching Experience 2010 - Present............................... UAB (AC) 2005-09......................................... Berry (AC) 2003-04.........................Georgia State (AC) 2001-02......................................... Berry (AC)

Hopper guided the UAB pitching staff in capturing its first-ever Conference USA Tournament Championship and advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1991. En route to the NCAA Regionals, Hopper saw three pitchers off the 2012 staff earn All-Tournament honors in Michael Busby (MVP), Ryan Nance and Chase Mallard. In the three Conference USA Tournament victories, the Blazer staff registered a miniscule 1.08 ERA and held opponents to a .189 batting average in 25 total innings, including a 5-0 shutout of Memphis in the league’s title game.

In addition to the successful postseason run for UAB, Hoppers’ staff pitched the most innings in program history (554.1) and recorded the most victories (32) since the 1996 campaign. The Blazers recorded four shutouts, the most since 1993, and issued the fewest walks (207) since 2003 under Hopper last season. In his four seasons with the Green and Gold, he has worked with three of the top 10 lowest ERA pitchers in program lore: Ben Bullard, Dillon Napoleon, and Ryan Woolley. The 2011 staff featured two right-handed pitchers that were recognized by the league in Ryan Woolley and Dillon Napoleon. Both earned second-team All-Conference honors, while Napoleon became the first UAB player to earn the league’s Newcomer of the Year award. Following the season, Woolley was drafted in the 13th round by the Detroit Tigers, becoming the 12th pupil under Hopper’s guidance to play professionally. “Josh has a great command of pitching mechanics and a toughness and energy that are contagious as he leads our pitching staff,” head coach Brian Shoop said. “We truly believe he is one of the bright young stars in our profession. We as coaches, along with our players, are blessed to have Josh Hopper leading our pitching staff.”

Hopper speaks with Tanner Bryant and Jacob German on the mound in 2013.

In 2009, his final season at Berry, Hopper helped the Vikings to the program’s first NAIA World Series appearance and a ranking of No. 4 in the final NAIA Baseball Coaches Poll. Berry finished the year 46-16 and Hopper’s pitching staff ranked in the top 25 nationally in ERA (4.22) and opponent batting average (.263).

The 2009 Berry staff featured NAIA All-American Matt McCalley, who finished the season with a 10-1 record and a 1.26 ERA. Also the program’s career saves leader, McCalley is the second All-American coached by Hopper, joining Tim Borders (2001). In 2008, Hopper coached Collin McHugh, who was selected by the New York Mets in the 18th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. Hopper’s pitchers are known for their command of the strike zone, with his 2006 Berry staff leading the nation in fewest walks per game and the 2008 version ranking 13th in the country in that category. In his five-year stint with the Vikings, Hopper’s pitching staffs averaged 290 strikeouts a year to just 141 walks. Hopper’s most recent stop at Berry, located in northwest Georgia, was his second stint as an assistant with his alma mater. He started his coaching career at Berry in 2001 before moving on to Georgia State for the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Hopper then returned to Berry before the 2005 campaign. In addition to his experience at the college level, Hopper also previously served as the head coach of the 18-year-old East Cobb Tigers out of the highly successful East Cobb Baseball youth program in Marietta, Ga. As a player at Berry in the late 1990s, Hopper pitched his way to All-Conference honors three times and finished his career ranked in the top five on the school’s all-time wins and strikeouts lists. He helped the Vikings to three NAIA regional tournament appearances. Following his collegiate career, Hopper spent two years in the New York Mets’ minor league system. He was a member of a championship team in 1999 with the Mets’ Gulf Coast League squad, then split the 2000 season between the Capital City Bombers of the South Atlantic League and the Pittsfield Mets of the New York-Penn League. Hopper graduated from Berry in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education. He earned a master’s degree in exercise science from Georgia State in 2004. Hopper was married in July 2006 to the former Kylie Bivens, and the couple has a son, Kase, and a daughter, Kameron.

#35 RON POLK Volunteer Assistant Coach • Sixth Season Grand Canyon (Ariz.), 1965 Legendary Mississippi State baseball coach Ron Polk, the winningest coach in any sport in the history of the Southeastern Conference, enters his sixth season as UAB’s volunteer assistant coach. Polk came to UAB in the summer of 2008 after announcing his retirement from the Mississippi State program.

The Polk File

A veteran of postseason play, Polk helped the Blazers advance to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1991 in 2012. The Blazers made the NCAA Regional in Tallahassee, Fla., hosted by Florida State, by capturing the Conference USA Tournament Championship to receive an automatic bid.

Coaching Experience 2009 - Present............................... UAB (AC) 2002-08...................Mississippi State (HC) 2000-01....................................Georgia (HC) 1976-97...................Mississippi State (HC) 1972-75................Georgia Southern (HC)

“It has been a personal highlight in life for me to be able to learn under Coach Polk in the 80’s at Mississippi State and now work with him again at UAB,” head coach Brian Shoop said. “I have more respect for Coach Polk than any coach in college baseball. No one has had more of an influence on our game and on countless young coaches, including myself. Our players love him and appreciate the sacrifices he makes to be involved with the UAB baseball program. We are better in so many ways because of Coach’s decision to donate his time to Blazer baseball.” In July 2009, Polk was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame. He is also a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Hall of Fame, having been inducted in 1995. In 1988, he was presented with the Lefty Gomez Award, the highest award given by the ABCA. Polk retired from Mississippi State in 2008, following his 29th season at the school. He currently ranks ninth all-time in NCAA Division I career head coaching victories. Polk concluded his 35-year career as a head coach with a career record of 1,373-700-2 (.662). In his career, which also included stints at Georgia Southern (1972-75) and Georgia (2000-01), Polk led his teams to a total of eight College World Series appearances, five SEC championships, and 23 Regional appearances. He is one of only three coaches in college baseball history to take three different programs to the College World Series. Polk mentored current UAB head coach Brian Shoop when the Blazer skipper was on his staff at Mississippi State from 1983-89. The Bulldogs won three SEC championships and made one trip to the College World Series during that time.

Polk won 1,373 games as a head coach, which ranks ninth in NCAA Division I history.

At Mississippi State, Polk recruited and coached some of the game’s all-time greats, including Major League standouts Jeff Brantley, Will Clark, Rafael Palmeiro, Bobby Thigpen, and Jonathan Papelbon. Those are just a few of the 185 of his former players that have signed professional contracts and a few of the 23 that have played in the Major Leagues. A three-time National Coach of the Year, Polk held the position of Assistant Athletics Director for Special Projects at Mississippi State following his team’s College World Series run in 1997. While in that position, Polk spearheaded a successful campaign to expand Polk-DeMent Stadium in Starkville. He returned to coaching at Georgia in 2000, where he spent two years before making the move back to Mississippi State for his final seven seasons. Perhaps Polk’s most talented Mississippi State squad ever was the 1985 version. That club finished the year 50-15 and was SEC champion before going on to appear in the College World Series. The 1985 Bulldog club featured future major league stars Brantley, Clark, Palmeiro, and Thigpen. In his 35 years as a college baseball coach, Polk produced 35 All-Americans and more than 75 All-SEC performers. In addition to Polk’s work in the collegiate ranks, the Boston, Mass., native has completed seven tours as a member of the coaching staff for the USA National Baseball Team, twice serving as head coach. Two of the teams he coached represented the United States in the Olympics. Polk has also impacted the college baseball world through his literary work. He has authored “The Baseball Playbook,” the nation’s leading college textbook for baseball, and is featured in the book, “6 Psychological Factors for Success: America’s Most Successful Coaches Reveal the Path to Competitive Excellence.”

BEN DRUST Director of Operations • Fifth Season UAB, 2009 Ben Drust enters his fifth season as a member of the UAB baseball staff as the program’s director of baseball operations. His duties include setting up team travel, maintaining Young Memorial Field, and organizing both fall and summer camps for the Blazers. Drust was a two-year member of the UAB program as a player, suiting up for the Blazers in 2008 and 2009 after transferring from John A. Logan (Ill.) College, where he played his freshman and sophomore seasons.

The Drust File Experience 2010 - Present......UAB (Director of Ops.) 2008-09.....................................UAB (Player) 2006-07................. John A. Logan (Player)

“During Ben’s two years as a Blazer, he really grew into a coaching role,” head coach Brian Shoop said. “This transition into our director of baseball operations was a natural move. Ben was a model teammate, loyal to UAB and loves our baseball program.”

A reserve infielder with the Blazers, Drust saw action in 20 career games, including 11 as a senior in 2009. He posted a .300 batting average in limited plate appearances during his final campaign. Drust was more than a role player on the 2009 team, also serving the team’s first base coach. Prior to his arrival at UAB, Drust hit .331 with 33 runs scored and 20 RBI in his final season at John A. Logan. The Carterville, Ill., product earned a spot on the Great Rivers Athletic Conference All-Tournament Team that year. A strong all-around athlete, Drust was a four-year letterwinner in baseball, basketball and football at Carterville High School.

Thousands of fans passed through the gates at Young Memorial Field in 2013 to take in the UAB baseball gameday experience. The Diamond Girls and UAB Marketing department serve as the driving forces behind the UAB baseball gameday experience. The Diamond Girls serve as a vital component of the UAB baseball program, assisting with a wide-range of tasks from running merchandise tables at home games to assisting the coaching staff with day-to-day administrative duties and serving as “Bat Girls.” A very visible fixture at UAB home games, the Diamond Girls help with promotional efforts across campus in an effort to improve attendance at Blazer home games.

2013 SEASON REVIEW foe. The lone run of the game came in the third inning on screaming single to center off the bat of John Frost with the bases loaded and one out. The Blazers finished with seven hits, all singles, as Frost and Ivan De Jesus each went 2-for-4, with Frost driving in the lone run. Bryant And Mallard Combine For Shutout Tanner Bryant pitched seven scoreless innings, taking a perfect game into the sixth inning, to lead the UAB baseball team to a 1-0 win against Valparaiso at the RussMatt Invitational on March 15. Bryant retired the first 15 Valparaiso batters he faced, before a leadoff single by the Crusaders in the sixth inning ended his no-hit bid. That hit was the only allowed by Bryant in his seven innings of work, finishing with no walks and five strikeouts. James Naile sealed UAB’s 10-9 victory against then-No. 18 Rice with his first save of the 2013 season.

UAB Tops Nationally Ranked Opponent The UAB baseball team overcame a 4-0 deficit scoring seven times in the sixth inning, highlighted by a grand slam from Ryan Prinzing to upset then-No. 18 Rice Owls, 10-9 on May 3 at Young Memorial Field. At that point, UAB had captured four of the last five meetings with Rice at Young Memorial Field, with the Owls being ranked in all five affairs. UAB found itself in a 4-0 hole and without a hit against Rice starter Austin Kubitza through the first three innings. Prinzing and Bryant each recorded singles in the fourth inning as the Blazers pushed across one run thanks to a Rice error. The sixth inning was when things really turned in UAB’s favor. The Blazers scored seven runs by using just two hits, including the grand slam from Prinzing.

Chase Mallard came on in relief of Bryant in the eighth, pitching two innings and allowing two hits, one walk, and striking out three. Prinzing Is UAB Baseball’s First Academic All-American Ryan Prinzing of the UAB baseball team was named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America Third Team. Prinzing, a native of Oswego, Ill., became the first UAB baseball player in program history to be named an Academic All-American honoree. In his third year as a Blazer, Prinzing continued to rack up the academic honors. Earlier in the year, he earned Capital One Academic All-District and earned a spot on the Conference USA

Rice made a big dent into the UAB lead in the top of the eighth inning. The Owls loaded the bases via three walks allowing Christian Stringer to double in two runs with a ball hit down the right field line. Michael Ratterree then hit his second home run of the day, a three-run blast, to pull Rice within one, 10-9. After giving up the home run, Chase Mallard got the final two outs of the eighth inning and handed the ball over to James Naile, who threw a clean ninth frame to pick up his first save of the season. Blazers Top Alabama For Fifth Straight Time Five UAB pitchers combined on a four-hit shutout to blank Alabama, 1-0. Leading 1-0 in the top of the ninth, the Crimson Tide put the tying run in scoring position with two outs. Relief pitcher Jacob German induced a pop up to left for the game’s final out to preserve UAB’s fifth straight win against the in-state 4 7

CONFERENCE USA ON TV Conference USA enjoys significant television exposure through partnerships with FOX Sports Media Group, CBS Sports Network and ESPN. The multi-tiered selection process that is rooted in partnering with all three networks has substantially increased the number of national and regional appearances for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and all other conference sports. As one the largest FBS conferences in 2013, Conference USA membership will include institutions in 12 of the Top 65 television markets, eight in the Top 40 and four in the Top 25 media markets according to Nielson. Conference USA home markets next year will include more than 14.5 million TV households, a 43 percent increase from a year ago. CONFERENCE USA DIGITAL NETWORK The Conference USA Digital Network officially launched in August of 2011. Network programming includes live streaming of non-televised events, video on demand, a weekly Conference USA studio show, podcasting, regular-season and championship event highlights and conference-produced feature stories. In its first year, 1,164 events were streamed live and 8,126 videos were posted and available on the Conference USA Digital Network, and that number just keeps growing. Monthly and yearly subscriptions offer fans access to events offered on all of the Conference USA member institution’s athletic websites as well as Conference USA network programming. CONFERENCE USA IN THE COMMUNITY The conference’s current footprint is concentrated with 16 members in nine states and a combined area population of nearly 17 million. With a commitment to community involvement, the conference developed several initiatives to maintain strong ties in Conference USA cities, as well as with fans and alumni across the country. Conference USA schools also place a priority on giving back to their communities through volunteer service with local and national organizations. Individually, student-athletes are recognized each season through the Spirit of Service award.

A PROUD HISTORY Conference USA was formed in 1995 and quickly emerged as one of the nation’s top conferences. The conference unveiled its name, logo and commissioner April 24, 1995 in Chicago. The league’s charter members included Charlotte, Cincinnati, DePaul, Houston, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Saint Louis, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and USF. Eleven of the institutions began athletic participation in 1995, while Houston joined competition in the fall of 1996.

SUCCESS OFF THE FIELD Conference USA institutions are among the nation’s best in academic performance among student-athletes, bolstered by the fact that student-athletes at league schools have a higher graduation rate than the general student population. Among Conference USA’s 5,000 student-athletes, there are champions off the playing field as well. In 18 years, 176 student-athletes earned national Capital One Academic All-America honors, while 618 were named All-District. In addition, more than 26,000 student-athletes have been named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll or received the Commissioner’s Academic Medal, indicative of outstanding achievement in the classroom.

GOVERNANCE Conference USA has significant representation in the NCAA governance structure. The Presidents of the member institutions serve as the league’s Board of Directors.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL - 48 NCAA Tournament appearances - 43 WNIT appearances - One team in the NCAA Sweet 16 - Two WNIT semifinalists - One WBI Champion

The 2014 UAB baseball team was introduced at Regions Field in between innings of the Birmingham Barons’ game on Aug. 29, 2013.

In its first season at Regions Field, the Birmingham Barons won the 2013 Southern League championship.

The 2014 season marks the first year the UAB baseball team will call Regions Field home. The stadium, located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, opened in April 2013. The 8,500seat stadium is home to the Birmingham Barons, the Double-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.

The UAB baseball team will play 21 of its 30 home games at Regions Field in 2014. UAB opens the 2014 season with a threegame series against Tennessee-Martin at Regions Field beginning on Friday, Feb. 14.

“We are thrilled to play at Regions Field,” UAB baseball head coach Brian Shoop said. “The kids are excited. We had the opportunity to practice there once and it’s a special place. Every person that we give a tour of the field, their reaction is the same; it’s wide eyes and, `Wow.’ We think it will help the fan experience and make the overall game presentation better. You can’t help but be excited for the opportunity to play in this facility. We think the teams coming in are excited, as well.” “We love playing at Young Memorial and are grateful for Young Memorial,” added Shoop. “We are excited to continue to play a portion of our home season at our traditional campus site, as well.”

In August 2013, Regions Field was named one of the best ballparks in the nation. Baseballparks.com named Regions Field the 2013 Ballpark of the Year. “We think it is going to help our schedule and attracting teams to come and play,” commented Shoop. “There seems to be excitement from other schools about the opportunity to play there. Ultimately, we believe it has helped and will continue to help in recruiting with the opportunity to play there. There are already so many great things in place at UAB for young people to participate in. It’s a fantastic institution in which to earn a degree. Now with the opportunity to play in this ballpark, we hope that will be a factor.”

YOUNG MEMORIAL FIELD Jerry D. Young Memorial Field, the on-campus home of the UAB Blazers, is in its 31st season of use in 2014. The park received a pair of upgrades for the 2010 season with the addition of a new state-of-the art scoreboard and the addition of covered hitting cages beyond the left field fence. The scoreboard, produced by industry leader Daktronics, provides additional information and video capabilities that feature LED technology while offering expanded inventory opportunities for corporate partners.

Other additions to Young Memorial Field were the construction of the Harry “The Hat” Walker Press Box, dedicated March 4, 1997, which houses media members and game operations staff, and picnic tables and grills placed along the right field fence and along the outside of the field on the first base side. In addition, the UAB baseball locker room was renovated in December 2002.

Young Memorial Field was dedicated in honor of Dr. Jerry D. Young on April 18, 1985. A host of dignitaries, including Hall of Fame third baseman and former Baltimore Oriole great Brooks Robinson, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch, were present for the dedication. One of the finest baseball surfaces in the South, Young Memorial Field is equipped with an underground sprinkler and drainage system which helps to keep the playing surface in excellent condition throughout the year. The facility got a major overhaul in 1999, as the infield was regraded and resodded and a new sound system was installed. Prior to the 2000 season, new fencing was added to the park in the bullpen areas. The concession area and umpires’ room also were renovated. A major cosmetic change was made in 2001 when a new wood outfield fence was completed just before the beginning of the season, replacing the chain-link fencing that had enclosed the field since 1984. The ballpark now has slightly larger dimensions, going 330 feet down the lines, 370 feet to the left center power alley, 400 feet to dead center field, and 360 feet to the right center power alley. In addition, the large “hitter’s eye” in center field has been fused with the fence. The Young Memorial Field version of the “Green Monster” stands 30 feet high and 100 feet wide. The first game in the new facility was on Feb. 26, 1984, a 14-8 victory over Vanderbilt. Joey Cora of Vanderbilt got the first hit at Young Memorial Field, while Mike Goff of UAB got the first Blazer hit and homer at the new field. Former UAB assistant coach Frank Walton picked up the save for the Blazers. UAB has 27 .500 or better seasons in 30 years of play at the facility, with a school record 30-7 mark at home in 1992. UAB is 530-348-1 (.604) all-time at Young Memorial Field. Young Memorial Field was the host of the first Great Midwest Conference Championship (1992), as the Blazers won the league title on their home field. Lights were installed at Young Memorial Field in 1993, with the first night game resulting in a 6-4 victory over Southern Miss on March 23, 1993.

Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Young Memorial Field.

FOUNDING FATHER JERRY D. YOUNG An ardent supporter of all UAB sports, but especially the baseball program, Dr. Jerry D. Young served as senior vice president for finance at UAB at the time of his death in May, 1983. A magna cum laude graduate of Indiana State University, Young came to UAB in 1971 and was the first dean of the School of Business. By 1973, the school had received accreditation by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business as the youngest school to achieve accreditation in the 60-year history of that program. Named UAB’s vice president for finance in 1974, Dr. Young was responsible for all fiscal operations at the university and played a key role in guiding the physical development of the campus during a period of intensive construction and growth. At the same time, he was instrumental in establishing the intercollegiate athletics program on the UAB campus, the hiring of Gene Bartow as athletics director and head basketball coach in addition to the hiring of Harry “The Hat” Walker as the Blazers’ first baseball coach.

Jerry D. Young, member of the In recognition of his contributions and abilities, he was named senior vice president for finance in 1982. He served for several years UAB Athletics Hall of Fame’s first induction class in the fall as the chairman of UAB’s Faculty Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics. of 2009. Dr. Young devoted his time and energy to the development of the Sun Belt Conference and was treasurer of the league in 1982. At the time of his death, Dr. Young was serving as president of the conference. During the 1984-85 school year, the Sun Belt instituted the Jerry D. Young Award, to be awarded to the men’s basketball player who best exemplified the criteria of sportsmanship, scholarship, leadership and athletic ability. Dr. Young worked tirelessly for the UAB community and his work on behalf of the athletics department and the baseball program was the chief reason why the field stands today. His son Jeff was a member of the first UAB baseball team in 1979, and Dr. Young had a particular fondness for baseball at UAB. Unfortunately, he did not live to see the field completed. His accomplishments in academia, athletics and administration exemplify the high standards to which many aspire, but few reach. Within his too-short 50 years of life, Dr. Jerry Young touched the lives of thousands in a positive and meaningful way. 7 7

HARRY “THE HAT” WALKER One of the most colorful characters to ever grace the UAB campus, Harry “The Hat” Walker passed away on August 8, 1999. Walker served as the first head coach for the Blazer baseball program from its inception in 1979 to 1986. His No. 32 is the only UAB baseball jersey number to be retired. Walker, who was inducted in the UAB Athletics Hall of Fame in 2013, led the Blazers to two Sun Belt North Division titles (1981-82) and had an eight-year record of 211-171 (.552). What cannot be measured about Walker in pure numbers can be measured in terms of the impact that he had in the early days of the UAB program. A veteran of five decades in professional baseball, “The Hat” brought a style, and more importantly, instant credibility to the fledgling program.

Harry William “The Hat” Walker Batted: Left; Threw: Right Height: 6-2; Weight: 190 Born: Oct. 22, 1916 (Pascagoula, Miss.) Died: Aug. 8, 1999 (Birmingham, Ala.) Major League Debut: September 25, 1940

From a modest 21-29 record in his first season in 1979, Walker and the Blazers followed with a 30-20 mark in 1980 and a 40-17 record in 1981. He finished out his career at UAB with four consecutive 20-plus victory seasons. Nicknamed “The Hat” for his habit of adjusting his cap between pitches in the batter’s box, Walker spent 22 years as a player in professional baseball. He played eight years with the St. Louis Cardinals, appearing in three World Series (1942-43, 46) and two All-Star Games (1943, 47). A left-handed hitter, he won the 1947 National League batting title with a .363 average while playing for two different teams, St. Louis and Philadelphia. In all, he hit over .300 five times and had a .296 lifetime average. The versatile player, who was mostly an outfielder during his career, also played for the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds. Walker spent 20 years as a manager, including major league stints with the Cardinals (1955), the Pittsburgh Pirates (1965-67) and the Houston Astros (1968-72). After the 1972 season, Walker worked as a hitting instructor for the Cardinals for three seasons. He was St. Louis’ minor league farm director in 1976 and the Cards’ advance scout and major-league scout for trades from 1977-78. Walker came from a family steeped in tradition. His father, Ewart (Dixie) Walker, was the first Alabamian to go to the majors. Dixie pitched for Washington in 1909 and his uncle, Ernie, played for the St. Louis Browns. His brother, Fred (Dixie), was a star outfielder in both the AL and NL. Dixie also won the National League batting title in 1944. Walker was revered as one of the game’s great hitting instructors, as he worked with stars such as Cesar Cedeno, Matty Alou, Manny Mota and many others. During the 1997 season, the Harry “The Hat” Walker Press Box was dedicated prior to the March 4 game vs. Vanderbilt. The “Hat Box” was a dream for Walker, who wanted the local and visiting media to enjoy the hospitality of UAB Baseball at Young Memorial Field. Walker was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 1978.

UAB ADMINISTRATION DR. RAY WATTS, PRESIDENT Ray L. Watts, M.D., UAB’s seventh president, has demonstrated visionary leadership in education, research and clinical care throughout his career. A Birmingham native and graduate of West End High School, Dr. Watts earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering at UAB in 1976. The collaborations he had with biomedical engineering students as an undergraduate inspired him to expand his career horizons and, four years later, he graduated from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis as valedictorian of his class. Dr. Watts completed a neurology residency, medical internship, and clinical fellowships at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, followed by a twoyear medical staff fellowship at the National Institutes of Health. Before returning to UAB in 2003, he was part of a team that helped to create an internationally renowned research and clinical center for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders at Emory University in Atlanta. At UAB, Dr. Watts served as the John N. Whitaker Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurology. There he led the development of an interdisciplinary research program aimed at translating scientific breakthroughs into promising new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and played a key role in the establishment of the UAB Comprehensive Neuroscience Center. He also was named president of the University of Alabama Health Services Foundation. In 2010, Dr. Watts accepted the position of Senior Vice President and Dean of the School of Medicine at UAB, and later was named to the James C. Lee Jr. Endowed Chair. As dean, Dr. Watts – in partnership with UAB Health System and Health Services Foundation leaders – initiated the AMC21 comprehensive strategic plan, encompassing education, research, clinical care and primary care. AMC21 aims to make UAB “the preferred academic medical center of the 21st century,” and has led to the recruitment of outstanding faculty, the launch of programs to accelerate research and drug discovery, and the development of a third regional medical campus in Montgomery, among other successes. He has been tireless in his efforts to enhance medical student training—from increasing available scholarships to supporting Equal Access Birmingham, a volunteer organization in which students provide care to underserved patients—and to foster stronger relationships with medical alumni throughout the state. “People want to invest in the future—in solutions that will have a real impact on our health, education and our economy,” Dr. Watts has said. “So the state and community want us to develop our ideas and capitalize on opportunities to lead. UAB can be one of the most dymanic and productive universities of the 21st century, and that is our vision.” Dr. Watts and his wife Nancy, who just retired as a nurse at UAB, have five grown children.

BRIAN MACKIN, ATHLETICS DIRECTOR Brian Mackin was named UAB’s Director of Athletics on February 14, 2007. He moved into the position after spending five years as senior associate athletic director for external affairs for the Blazers. A former UAB baseball letterman, Mackin has a deep-rooted passion for the University and its athletics program. With an eye on the future, his commitment to continue to grow the program has been clear in the time since he became athletics director. Mackin’s desire to see UAB excel both on and off the playing field was never more apparent than this past academic year when the Blazers turned in their highest finish in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings in 12 years. He has made success in the classroom and improving athletic facilities two of his top priorities. Mackin was able to secure the first-ever naming rights for the athletics program with the generous gift from Don and Marsha Hire for the Hoke Hire Student-Athlete Academic Center. With the opening of the Academic Center, an abundance of new computer equipment has been added. Mackin has also strengthened the academic area by creating additional staff positions. Under Mackin’s watch, the Academic Reform Group (ARG) was initiated. This group is made up of athletics staff members and academic support staff. With its mission to create an environment of academic excellence in the department, the group addresses every aspect of a student-athlete’s experience while at UAB. Mackin has also demonstrated his commitment to academic success by initiating a penalty structure for student-athletes and making them accountable if they miss classes or tutorial sessions. Mackin’s priority on academics has paid dividends as the Blazers’ Academic Progress Rates (APR) scores have improved each year under his tenure as AD. The most recent APR report released in June showed that all but three of UAB’s teams have a multi-year rate of 950 or better. Since Mackin became athletics director, a new 10,000-square foot weight room has opened. A new, spacious, state-of the-art athletic training facility opened in the fall of 2008. With the renovation of the Ullman Building, the Blazers’ Olympic sports coaches have been able to relocate into brand new offices. Other facilities improvements have included the resurfacing of the track for the Blazers’ track and field team. The first phase of the new, on-campus UAB softball facility was completed prior to the start of the 2010 season. This past February, the Don and Alicia Huey Softball Hitting Facility was dedicated. The upgrades and progress of the program under Mackin have not been limited to facilities and academics. In the last two years, the athletics program entered an agreement with Nike that provides apparel and equipment for all of UAB’s athletics teams. In his position as athletics director, Mackin has also been involved on various conference and national committees. He just completed his first year as a member of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. Mackin came on board at UAB in the spring of 2002 as senior associate AD for external affairs. In that role, he was responsible for fund-raising, corporate support and marketing for the athletic department. In 2006, Mackin was named Division I-A Fundraiser of the Year by the National Association of Athletic Development Directors. Under Mackin’s leadership, contributions to UAB athletics nearly tripled from $1.3 million in 2001 to about $3.7 million in 2006. Additionally, he has been responsible for the creation of several affinity groups including the Athletic Investors Group, the Champion Club, and the Blazer Club, which brought together the two annual funds supporting football and men’s basketball. Prior to joining UAB, Mackin served as Manager of Corporate Business Development at Vulcan Materials, where he was responsible for examining potential new markets for business development and locating growth opportunities in the industry. Mackin earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from UAB in 1983. He was a member of the Blazer baseball team four seasons and then moved into the Houston Astros baseball organization where he spent one season. Mackin then joined Vulcan Materials, where he held management positions in sales and market analysis. In 1990, he joined Southern Ready Mix as sales manager before joining Dunn Construction in 1993 where he rose to vice president in 1999. His responsibilities included business development, sales and project management. Mackin’s community activities include the Birmingham Tip-Off Club, which hosts the State High School Final Four, the Monday Morning Quarterback Club and the Birmingham Rotary Club. He has served as the president of the Birmingham Tip-Off Club. In addition, Mackin is a member of the Public Athletic, Cultural and Entertainment Facilities Board of the City of Birmingham (PACE). Mackin and his wife, Sally, have five children: Ragland (24), Brian Jr. (22), Ferrell (19), Mary Aileen (18), and Ella (16).

BIRMINGHAM The Magic City

The statue of Vulcan — Roman God of Fire and Iron — is the symbol of the city of Birmingham.

W

ith a population of more than 230,000 (more than one million in the metropolitan area), Birmingham has a strong, diverse, service-oriented economy and is recognized as a Southeast leader. Founded shortly after the Civil War, Birmingham rapidly became known as “The Magic City” because of its phenomenal rate of industrial growth in its beginning. Its mountainous strata and forest surrounding the city

are rich with ore deposits, and it was that natural wealth that quickly transformed young Birmingham into a bustling steel metropolis. Today, Birmingham continues to earn the distinction, “The Magic City,” but this tribute is due to the city’s economic competitiveness, technological advancements and quality of life — offerings which are sought after by professionals with an eye toward the future. Birmingham has been recognized as one of America’s “Most Livable Cities” by the U.S. Conference of Mayors — as recently as 1993. Birmingham’s strategic location and diverse economy position the city as one of tremendous opportunity and growth. Centrally located and the largest municipality in Alabama, the city is home to a number of renowned individuals who have made an impression on the nation and the world in music and entertainment, education, medicine and sports, to name a few. There is never a lack of cultural entertainment in “The Magic City”. Dozens of neighborhood and city-wide festivals, museums, parks, sports competitions and much more provide unlimited activity and amusement. Residents and visitors to Birmingham enjoy the city’s recreational and historical attractions such as the Birmingham Zoo, Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Vulcan Park, Sloss Furnaces, Southern Museum of Flight and the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame.

Sports enthusiasts will never be at a loss for activity at the heart of the “Football Capital of the South.” UAB plays all of its home football games at historic Legion Field, which also was the site of preliminary round soccer matches at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Professional athletic teams in the area include the Class-AA Birmingham Barons (baseball). Several annual fests are held in Birmingham. The biggest is City Stages, held each spring in the downtown City Center. City Stages attracts nearly a quarter of a million people for a threeday weekend of unlimited music. All of this and more makes Birmingham “The Magic City” to residents and visitors yearround.

The Birmingham Civil Rights Museum stands as a reminder of the past and a beacon of hope for the future.


UAB AT A GLANCE UAB is a young, dynamic university that has, over four decades, won international renown for its leading-edge research, medical care and academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Top-Quality

Health Care • UAB Hospital is the largest in the state and among the largest and most complex in the nation (1,146 beds), and the only Alabama hospital listed for 22 straight years in the U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” issue, which lists only 3 percent of hospitals nationwide.

Gene Bartow Alabama Sports Hall Of Fame ’89 National College Basketball Hall Of Fame ’09

O

ne of the most respected figures in intercollegiate athletics, Gene Bartow, forged the UAB athletic program into a well-rounded organization with outstanding teams in several sports. Bartow, considered the “founding father” of UAB athletics, grew the intercollegiate sports program there from its infancy into one that featured 17 sports and an annual operating budget of more than $8 million by the time he retired from the position in 2000. Bartow, who passed away Jan. 3, 2012 after a nearly three-year battle with cancer, guided the program through three conference changes, grew the football team from a club sport into a Division I-A program, and added several women’s sports to the university’s athletics roster. Bartow was at the helm of the UAB men’s basketball program for 18 seasons, compiling a record of 366-203 (.643) during his tenure. He led the Blazers to the NIT in the program’s second year of existence, and followed that up with seven straight NCAA Tournament appearances, including trips to the Sweet 16 in 1981 and the Elite Eight in 1982. In all, he led UAB to 14 postseason appearances, nine of which were NCAA Tournaments. In addition to his time at UAB, Bartow is one of the top college basketball coaches of all time. By the time he retired from collegiate coaching in 1996, he had led teams for 34 years at six universities (Central Missouri State, Valparaiso, Memphis State, Illinois, UCLA and UAB), compiling 647 wins, 15 NCAA Tournament appearances, two Final Four appearances, one national title game appearance and one national Coach of the Year Award (both with Memphis State in 1973), and no probation problems with the NCAA. In 2009, Bartow received the ultimate honor as he was inducted into the National College Basketball Hall of Fame. He entered the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 1989 and is also a member of both the Missouri Basketball Hall of Fame and the Northeast Missouri Athletic Hall of Fame. The Browning, Mo. native coached 34 years at six universities. He coached at Central Missouri State University from 1961-64, Valparaiso University from 1964-1970, Memphis State University from 1970-74, and he led the Tigers to the ‘73 NCAA national championship game and consecutive Missouri Valley Conference titles in the ‘71-’72 and ‘72-’73 seasons. In 1974 Bartow accepted the head coaching position at the University of Illinois. Illinois finished 8-18 in his only season coaching the Fighting Illini, and Bartow left his position to succeed John Wooden as the head coach of UCLA. Bartow coached at UCLA from 1975 to 1977, guiding them to a 52-9 record, including a berth in the 1976 Final Four. Bartow left UCLA after the 1977 season to take over the job of creating an athletic program at UAB. Bartow retired from coaching in 1996, and in 1997, UAB renamed its basketball venue, Bartow Arena, in his honor. The Birmingham News has voted him one of the top 10 most influential figures in Alabama sports for the past century. Bartow is survived by his wife, the former Ruth Huffine, and three children, Mark, Beth and Murry, who is the head men’s basketball coach at East Tennessee State.

Highlights


T

he state-of-the-art, $25 million Campus Recreation Center has covered all the bases. It boasts 18,000 square feet of weight and fitness space outfitted with all-new equiptment and a one-eighth-mile oval running track that juts out of the building, curving toward University Boulevard and 15th Street South to provide panoramic views of the campus. And just to make sure no one gets bored, planners added a five-story, rock-climbing wall. The facility features four basketball courts, five racquetball courts, one of which converts to a squash court and a multi-purpose court that can be used for indoor soccer, volleyball, floor hockey or badminton. There are also four aerobic rooms and a swimming pool with four lap lanes and leisure and physical rehabilitation areas. The handicap-accessible pool has many special features. A continuous current in the “lazy river” carries swimmers around the outer edge of the pool in inner tubes – the ride ends under a waterfall – or individuals can walk against the flow as a part of a physical rehabilitation program. For more intense resistance training, center members can use the “vortex,” a circular area within

the pool with forceful water jets. One of the four aerobics rooms is dedicated to spinning; the others host Pilates, general aerobics, yoga, step, and kickboxing classes along with other specialty offerings. The facility also includes the Kids Zone, a supervised area – equipped with toys, books, and movies – where parents can drop off children while they work out. The center also has a juice bar, wire-

less internet access, and an Outdoor Pursuits Center that rents camping gear and leads backpacking, rafting, and skiing trips to desitnations around the United States. The first floor houses a wellness center that coordinates with UAB groups to offer nutritional counseling, body-fat measurements, personal training, and general fitness assessments.
