Stevens Named Head Baseball Coach

July 23, 2014

Ryan Stevens is returning to Tompkins Cortland Community College as the new head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at TC3 from 2006 to 2010, replaces Pat Carroll. Carroll is leaving TC3 after eight seasons for a coaching position at Siena College, an NCAA Division I program in New York’s Capital Region.

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 winning more than 200 games. 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.

"Coach Stevens has proven to be a winner at every level, including the professional ranks, and I’m looking forward to him bringing that experience to our program. With his knowledge of the game, his passion for helping athletes succeed, and his commitment to hard work, he is exactly the right person to move TC3 baseball ahead," said TC3 Director of Athletics Mick McDaniel. "It’s a good fit: Ryan is a TC3 guy with tremendous regional and national connections. When the position was posted in early July, I had several local baseball icons call and urge me to give Ryan a chance at the helm of the Panthers. This was an easy decision. We are extremely excited to have Coach Stevens back in a Panther uniform."

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).

Pfund Adds All-Region Honors

June 12, 2014

For the fourth time in the last five years, Tompkins Cortland Community College has an all-region baseball player. Sophomore Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) was chosen to the all-region team by coaches in the NJCAA Region III.

Pfund was also named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference team. He started all 32 games for the Panthers, primarily as the team’s center fielder and lead-off hitter. He hit a team-best .365 with a slugging percentage of .552. He had five assists from the outfield, the most on the team, to go with 80 putouts. Between runs scored and runs batted in, he had a role in more than a third of TC3’s runs.

Pfund is the fifth TC3 player named all region since baseball was reinstated as a varsity sport in 2007.

Pfund Named All-Conference

June 5, 2014

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) has been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference baseball team. He was the lone TC3 selection to the 15-player team. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams.

Pfund was TC3’s center fielder and lead-off hitter, starting in all 32 games. He led the Panthers in several offensive categories, including batting average (.365), hits (35), doubles (8), triple (2), home runs (2), stolen bases (9), slugging percentage (.552), and on-base percentage (.419). He scored nearly a quarter of TC3’s runs, crossing the plate 24 times (the team total was 101). He also drove in 15, the second most on the team.

It’s the eighth straight year TC3 has been represented on the all-conference team.

Panthers Close Out Season with Sweep of Onondaga

Saturday, May 02, 2009

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team ended the season with a sweep of Mid-State Athletic Conference rival Onondaga Community College Saturday. The Panthers rallied in game one for an 8-7 win before taking the nightcap 4-1. TC3 ends the year with an overall record of 13-20 overall, 9-11 in Region III and 6-3 in the MSAC. Onondaga is 8-21 overall, 8-17 in region and 3-7 in conference.
 
TC3 took the early lead in game one before Onondaga erupted for five runs in the fifth to lead 5-1. The Panthers answered in the bottom of the fifth, scoring four times to tie the game at 5-5. The visitors reclaimed the lead in the sixth with two runs, but TC3 again responded, this time scoring three runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 9-8 lead. Pitcher Tatsuya Hagiwara (Nagano, Japan) came in and pitched a perfect seventh to close out the win.
 
Justin Stanton (Moravia H.S./Locke) earned the win in relief, tossing 1 and two thirds of an inning, allowing two runs on two hits. Jarrod Surine (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) and Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each went 2-for-4 to pace the eight-hit attack. Zambito, Jacob Newton (DeRuyter H.S./DeRuyter), and Brian Carroll (Gananda H.S./Walworth) each doubled for the winners.
 
Sophomore Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry) was the star of game two, pitching a complete game, striking out five while allowing just one run on six hits. He pitched with the lead from the first inning on, as TC3 scored twice in the bottom of the first and twice in the bottom of the second. Six different Panthers recorded a hit, with Dan Holden (Paul V. Moore H.S./Brewerton) leading the way with a 2-for-3 effort.

Panthers Beat Nation's #4

Saturday, April 25, 2009

When playing a nationally-ranked team, starting a pitcher who hadn't recorded an out all year wouldn't seem to be a recipe for success. Yet that's exactly what the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team did Saturday, and the result was a win for the Panthers over Herkimer County Community College. TC3 won the opener 9-8 before falling in game two 20-8. TC3 is now 10-16 overall and 6-7 in Region III. Herkimer, ranked fourth in the nation, is now 23-7 overall and 17-3 in region.
 
In game one, TC3's Jacob Newton (DeRuyter H.S./DeRuyter) made just his second start on the mound of the year and his first since failing to record an out in one of TC3's spring break games in Maryland. Despite his lack of time on the hill this season, Newton looked sharp early against the high-scoring Generals. Newton kept Herkimer off the board for the first three innings, striking out two while allowing just two hits. While Newton was putting up zeroes, his teammates were giving him plenty of support, scoring three runs in the first and another three in the third behind six hits.
 
Herkimer finally crossed the plate and knocked Newton out of the game with a five-run fourth, but TC3 responded with three more in the bottom of the inning to lead 9-5. With Justin Stanton (Moravia H.S./Locke) on the mound in relief of Newton, Herkimer was held off the board in the fifth before putting up three in the six to pull within one at 9-8. Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry) closed the door in the seventh, stranding two base runners to pick up the save.
 
Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) had a big game at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double and a triple and three RBI. Brandon Becker (Chaparrel H.S./Parker, Colo.) also had two hits and three RBI and Nicholas Mishlanie (Proctor H.S./Utica) tripled as one of his two hits.
 
As well as game one started for the Panthers, game two was the polar opposite. Herkimer took advantage of three hit batters, a walk, and an error to plate six runs in the first. The Generals continued to add to the lead en route to a 20-8 win. Herkimer scored in every inning, including a three-run seventh that was sparked by a stolen base that came with the Generals already leading by nine runs.
 
Newton provided a bright spot at the plate for the Panthers, picking up two of the team's nine hits. Derek Baroody (Hammondsport H.S./Savona) collected three RBI for the home team.

Panthers Split with Finger Lakes

Thursday, April 23, 2009

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team split a doubleheader with Finger Lakes Community College Thursday, winning game one 8-4 before coming up short in game two, 9-8. The Panthers are now 9-15 overall and 5-6 in Region III. Finger Lakes moves to 12-25 overall and 10-8 in region.
 
The Panthers found themselves behind early in both games. In the opener, TC3 trailed 4-2 before plating four runs in the bottom of the fourth and two more in the fifth. Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) tossed the complete game, scattering 11 hits for the win. Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) led the attack at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double. Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) chipped in with a 2-for-3 effort.
 
Game two again saw the home team down 4-2 before exploding in the bottom of the fourth. This time the Panthers scored five runs to take a 7-4 lead. Unfortunately for TC3, Finger Lakes responded with five of their own in the fifth to take a 9-7 lead. The visitors held the lead into the seventh, thanks in part to throwing out a runner at the plate to end the eighth. In the seventh, TC3 loaded the bases with two outs. Pinch-hitter Nick Mishlanie (Proctor H.S./Utica) beat out an infield hit for an RBI, bringing the Panthers to within one at 9-8. With Quick at the plate, it appeared TC3 would tie the game when a pitch hit Quick, but the umpire ruled that he had turned into the pitch and ordered him back to the box. Quick returned to the box, but struck out to end the game.
 
For game two, Quick was the lone Panther with two hits, going 2-for-4 with three runs scored. Zambito again came up big, driving in three runs.

Saturday, April 11, 2009

A wild doubleheader Saturday left the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team with a split with the Ithaca College J.V. team. The Panthers lost game one 8-7 before taking the second game 16-0 in six innings. TC3 is now 7-11 on the year.
 
The visiting Panthers took the lead in game one, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning. Ithaca came back with a run in the second, two in the third, and another run in the fourth to take a 4-3 lead. TC3 reclaimed the lead with two in the sixth and scored a pair of insurance runs in the top of the seventh to lead 7-4 going into the bottom of the last inning. It proved not to be enough insurance as the Bombers scored four times to pull out the win, plating the winning runs with a two-run hit with two outs.

After the tough loss, the Panthers responded with a vengeance in game two, scoring four runs in the top of the fourth. TC3 added a run in the fifth before exploding for 11 runs in the sixth.

Game 2 Boxscore

Thursday, April 09, 2009

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team worked ten innings in the nightcap to earn a doubleheader sweep of Broome Community College Thursday, winning the opener 6-1 before taking game two 4-3. The Panthers improve to 6-10 overall, 3-4 in Region III, and 2-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome falls to 2-7 overall, 2-4 in region, and 2-2 in conference.
 
In game one, the Panthers took a 5-0 lead after two innings and were never threatened. Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) sparked the attack from the leadoff spot, going 3-for-3 with two runs scored and a stolen base. Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) was 2-for-3 with a double and four RBI. Jacob Newton (DeRuyter H.S./DeRuyter) and Seth Cameron (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) each went 2-for-3 in support of pitcher Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn), who allowed just three hits while striking out five.
 
The second game was a classic, with both teams getting on the board with timely hitting in the second inning. After Broome plated a run in the top of the frame, TC3 answered with two as Newton singled and scored on a triple by Brent Stull (Lansing H.S./Lansing), who then scored on a single by Pete Ahart (Candor H.S./Candor). The Panthers made it 3-1 in the fifth as Cameron singled and eventually came around to score on a Zambito sacrifice fly.
 
The visitors got to TC3 pitcher Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry) in the sixth, putting together back-to-back extra base hits to pull within 3-2. The tying run came on a passed ball, but Mabry responded by striking out the next hitter before getting the final out on a groundout. Both teams recorded hits in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings, but couldn't push across a run. In the ninth, Broome opened the inning with a triple, but with the infield in, Mabry induced a pair of groundouts to Zambito at shortstop before ending the inning with a strikeout. In the top of the tenth, Mabry pitched around an error to keep the Hornets off the board, setting the stage for a dramatic bottom of the inning.
 
Newton opened the inning with a walk, his fourth of the game. He stole second, and after a strikeout, moved to third on a Broome error. With one out and the infield in, Siracusa pinch-hit, rolling a grounder to third. Newton broke for home on the throw to first, beating the relay home to score the game-winner.
 
Mabry went the distance for the Panthers, allowing just two earned runs on seven hits while striking out seven. The sophomore seemed to gain strength as the game wore on, striking out four over the last four innings while allowing just one ball out of the infield during that span. Jarrod Surine (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) was the only Panther with multiple hits in the second game, going 2-for-4. Newton went 1-for-1 with four walks, two stolen bases, and two runs scores, including the game winner.

The TC3 baseball team saw its three-game winning streak come to an end Saturday morning with a 3-1 loss to the Ithaca College JV. The Panthers are now 3-6 on the year, with an afternoon game against Region III foe Niagara County Community College at 4 p.m.
 
A day after scoring 20 runs in a doubleheader sweep of the Bombers, TC3's were slow to wake up Saturday.

Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) grounded into a fielder's choice, but the throw trying to double him up went wide of the Ithaca first baseman, allowing Newton to score.
 
The Panthers wasted a strong start from Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry). After three unearned runs over the first two innings, he settled in and held the Bombers off the board the rest of the way. He allowed just five hits, thanks in part to some stellar defense from centerfielder Quick and second baseman Jarrod Surine (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg). Mabry struck out four while walking just one.

Monday, March 16, 2009

The TC3 baseball team opened the 2009 season with a doubleheader against a Division I powerhouse Monday, playing at defending Region XX champion Hagerstown Community College. The Panthers were swept by scores of 11-1 and 13-3 to fall to 0-2 on the season. Hagerstown, a 2008 NJCAA College World Series participant, improves to 11-4 on the season.
 
The Panthers led in both games, scoring in all their runs in the top of the first inning in both games. Tatsuya Hagiwara (Nagano, Japan) scored the lone run in the first game, crossing home on an RBI by Brandon Becker (Chaparral/Parker, Colo.). The second game saw the Panthers rap out seven hits in five innings, led by 2-for-3 performance by Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) and Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn). Sophomore Brian Carroll (Gananda H.S./Walworth) drove in two runs with Hagiwara picking up the other RBI.
 
"We did things that made me real happy, but we need our pitchers to do a better job locating their pitches," said TC3 Head Coach Pat Carroll, noting his pitchers issued nine walks and hit two batters in eight innings of work."We were playing one of the D-I best teams in the country and we had seven hits in five innings in game two, so that pleased me."
 
TC3 will return to action Friday at Allegany College of Maryland, a Division I team in Cumberland, Maryland.
