Trumansburg High graduate Jeff Cotterill will pitch for the Panthers. The two-time I.A.C. All Star has signed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent and will join the team in the fall.
"Jeff is a tall, strong-armed pitcher who played under a great coaching staff at Trumansburg. He is a big part of the incoming recruiting class," said TC3 Coach Ryan Stevens. "Jeff brings a lot of energy and confidence to the baseball program and shows a lot of promise on the field and in the classroom. We are extremely happy to have Jeff join the Panther family and look for big things in his two years in Dryden."
A three-time Section III all star has signed to play for the TC3 Panthers. Cortland High third baseman Andrew Babcock completed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent and will part of Coach Ryan Stevens' program starting in the fall.
Babcock comes a Cortland High program that has grown into a perennial powerhouse. "Andrew should have a huge impact on our team, both offensively and defensively. I think he can be a real cornerstone for the TC3 program moving forward," said Stevens. "He had a great career at Cortland, hitting over .360 his last two years while showing a good glove. We couldn't be more excited to have him join the Panther family."
The TC3 baseball team has added a true centerfielder to its recruiting class, signing Trent Brown to an NJCAA National Letter of Intent. Brown played his high school ball at First Coast High in Jacksonville, Florida, and is an American Legion teammate of fellow TC3 recruit Austin Rourke.
"Trent is a speedy, strong-armed centerfielder with a lot of baseball savvy and top-of-the-lineup potential," said TC3 Coach Ryan Stevens, calling Brown is a polished player who brings great energy to the field. "He is a free safety on the baseball field and will give us a ton of coverage in the outfield. We look for great things from Trent on the field and in the classroom as we welcome him to the Panther family.”
Stillwater High's Alexander Evans will start his college career at Tompkins Cortland Community College. The 6-0, 175-pound catcher/utility player has signed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent. Evans hit .315 this year for the Stillwater Warriors.
"We found Alexander last fall and we fell in love with his intensity," said TC3 Head Coach Ryan Stevens. "He brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the field on a daily basis and will fit in nicely with the Panther Baseball family."

For the first time in the history of its baseball program, Tompkins Cortland Community College has an All-American. Sophomore Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) has been named to the NJCAA Division III All-American First Team. Fogg had previously been named the Player of the Year for both the NJCAA Region III and the Mid-State Athletic Conference.
The honor caps an amazing season for Fogg. He made TC3 history by hitting 11 home runs while batting .477 with a slugging percentage of .908. He finished his TC3 career owning or sharing 11 college records, including most home runs in a season and career, most hits in a game, most doubles in a game, highest batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage in a season and career, and most RBI in a career. He also finished in the top three for six other records.
Matt Socola has signed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play his college baseball at Tompkins Cortland Community College. The right-handed pitcher just finished his high school career at Bath-Haverling playing for the Rams.
"Matt is a standout pitcher who has had an impressive high school career," said TC3 Head Coach Ryan Stevens. "Matt will be a big part of the Panther pitching staff and the entire baseball program moving forward over the next two years."

The honors keep piling up for Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball player Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon). The sophomore has been named the NJCAA Region III Baseball Player of the Year, the first Panther ever named the best in the region. Voting was done by the coaches from the 17 Region III teams.
Fogg was among the region leaders in most offensive categories. He led Region III and was third in the nation with 11 home runs, which also set a new TC3 record. His .477 batting average was fourth best in the region and fifth best in the nation, while also setting a new College record. He had the best slugging percentage in the nation at .908, and was seventh in Region III with 44 runs batted in. His on-base percentage of .558 was second in the region and fifth in the nation.
Fogg is the sixth all-region selection in the history of TC3 baseball and just the second named to the first-team. He adds the Region III Player of the Year award to his previously earned Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year award, becoming the first TC3 player in any sport to earn both distinctions in the same season.
All-State player Collin Pickert has signed to play his college baseball at Tompkins Cortland Community College. A 2014 New York All-State selection as a catcher/utility player, Pickert is likely to earn a repeat selection after hitting over .400 this year while playing for small-school powerhouse McGraw High School.
"We are very excited to have Collin joining the Panther Family, and he will flourish on and off the field here at TC3," said Panthers Head Coach Ryan Stevens. "He had a impressive career at McGraw and will look to add to his resume with a strong career in a Panthers uniform."
Austin Rourke, a 6-4, 180-pound right-handed pitcher from Terry Parker High in Jacksonville, Florida, has signed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Tompkins Cortland Community College.
"Austin is a standout pitcher who will really boost our Panther pitching staff with his experience and talent," said TC3 Head Coach Ryan Stevens. "He also plays first base and is strong at the plate. Austin comes from a good family and baseball program, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him aboard."

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) has been named the Mid-State Athletic Conference 2015 Baseball Player of the Year. Freshmen Ty Christian (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Williamstown) and Jonathan Frost (Alpine H.S./Alpine, Texas) joined Frost on the all-conference team, giving the Panthers three of the 15 players honored. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams.
Fogg is the first TC3 baseball player named the MSAC Player of the Year since Anthony Siracusa in 2010. Among his offensive feats, the infielder shattered the TC3 records for home runs, blasting 11 this year to give him 13 for his career. The previous single-season record was five and the career record was seven. Fogg also set TC3 records for batting average (.477), slugging percentage (.908), and on-base percentage (.558). His 44 RBI and 52 hits each led the team and represent the second most ever in a season by a TC3 baseball player.
If not for Fogg, everyone would have been talking about the year Christian had in the power department. The outfielder hit seven home runs, passing the old single-season record and equaling the old career record. He was second on the team with 30 RBI and a slugging percentage of .545. His 18 walks tied him with Fogg for the team lead and helped give him an on-base percentage of .416.
Frost led the team with four wins on the mound, appearing in 10 games and throwing a team-high 53 innings. He struck out 45 batters, second most ever by a TC3 pitcher in a single season. At the plate Frost hit .330 with a .495 slugging percentage and a .440 on-base percentage. He tied with Christian for third on the team in runs scored (29) and tied for third with two home runs.
It’s the ninth straight year TC3 has placed a player on the all-conference team, and the sixth time the Panthers have had at least three representatives.

Ryan Stevens returns for his second season as head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at TC3 from 2006 to 2010, took over as head coach for the 2014-15 academic year.
Stevens has built an impressive resume since starting his coaching career at TC3. While on the Dryden campus he was the Panthers’ pitching coach and recruiting coordinator, helping build a brand new program into a playoff team. His time at the College coincides with the best four-year stretch in the program’s history, culminating with an NJCAA regional playoff appearance in his final season.
In 2008 he entered the world of professional baseball, taking a job with the Texarkana Gunslingers of the Independent Professional Continental Baseball league. After two years and a league championship with the Gunslingers, Stevens took his first head coaching job with the Alpine Cowboys of the Pecos League, an independent professional league based in Texas with teams through the southwest. In five seasons as the manager of the Cowboys, Stevens has led the team to the postseason each year, capturing two league championships and posting an overall record of 208-119. He was named the Pecos League Manager of the Year, and has helped more than 50 players earn promotions to higher levels of professional baseball, including one, Jonathan Edwards, who is on a major league roster (Texas Rangers, pitcher). Two other of his players signed contracts with Major League affiliates: David Valesente (Pittsburgh Pirates organization, catcher) and Andrew Wall (Washington Nationals organization, pitcher).
Stevens, who also worked as an associate scout in the West Texas region for the Washington Nationals, served as an assistant coach at Ithaca College during the 2013-14 school year. He is a Dryden native, graduating from Dryden High before playing collegiate baseball at SUNY Cobleskill and Frostburg State University (Maryland).

Wednesday saw the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team step on a baseball field for the first time this season, as the Panthers traveled to New Jersey to take on Cumberland County College. In addition to the home field advantage, Cumberland had the advantage of having played 15 games prior to today, winning ten of them against high level opponents. Not surprisingly, the result was a pair of losses for TC3, as Cumberland won 10-0 and 12-2. Cumberland is now 12-5 while TC3 is 0-2.
Each game was stopped after five innings due to the 10-run rule. In the opener, Davyon Dozier (Brooks Debartolo Collegiate H.S./Tampa, Fla.) had the lone hit for TC3, leading off the fourth with a single and getting stranded at second after picking up the team’s first stolen base.
In the second game, Dozier again provided offensive highlights, but he wasn’t alone. Dozier went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a run batted in. Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty) also went 2-for-3, Wilson Montalvo (Newburgh Free Academy/Bronx) drove in a run and Jeremy Fredenburg (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) doubled while going 1-for-1 with a walk.
TC3 continues its spring break trip by playing at Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville Thursday and Friday. The Panthers are scheduled to play doubleheaders against the Division II team both days.
