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 Eliminated in First Round of Playoffs

Saturday, May 01, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team was eliminated from the NJCAA Region III playoffs Saturday, dropping the first two games of a best of three series with Herkimer County Community College. TC3 lost by scores of 5-3 and 7-6 to end the season with a record of 20-24 overall. The team set a new record for wins and became the first baseball team in TC3 history to qualify for the postseason.
 
The Panthers led in both game Saturday. In the opener, Cody Rose (Candor H.S./Candor) drove in two in the third inning and to give TC3 a 2-0 lead. The lead held until Herkimer scored four in the bottom of the fifth and another in the seventh to take a 5-2 lead. TC3 answered with a run in the eighth to make it 5-3 but couldn't get any closer.
 
Facing elimination in game two, the Panthers fell behind 2-0 in the first inning. TC3 scored three in the top of the second, but the lead was short-lived as Herkimer plated two more in the bottom of the inning to lead 4-3. A single TC3 run in the fifth tied the game and two runs in the top of the eighth gave the Panthers a 6-4 lead, but in the bottom of the eighth Herkimer took advantage of a pair of TC3 errors to score three and reclaim the lead at 7-6. In the ninth, Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) singled to open the frame, but was stranded as the season came to an end.
 
In game two, Siracusa went 3-for-5 to lead a 13-hit attack. Rose, Billy Crowe (Bath-Haverling H.S./Bath), Seth Cameron (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca), and Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each had two hits.

Panthers Close Regular Season with Sweep

Thursday, April 29, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team closed out the regular season with a bang Thursday, sweeping a doubleheader from Jefferson Community College 13-3 and 9-8. The Panthers head into the NJCAA Region III playoff this weekend with an overall record of 20-22. TC3 plays a best-of-three series against Herkimer County Community College in the opening round of the playoffs starting Saturday.
 
The home team took control of the first game early. The Panthers took advantage of two walks and three hits, including a run-scoring triple by Cody Rose (Candor H.S./Candor) to score four runs in the first. The lead continued to grow each inning, including in the fifth when Josh Boyd (Upper Room Christian H.S./Hempstead) launched a homer to right. The game ended by the mercy rule in the sixth when a Rose double scored the run that gave the Panthers a ten-run lead.
 
Taylor Mackey (Moravia H.S./Locke) earned the win with a solid outing, allowing just two earned runs while scattering eight hits and striking out four over six innings. Boyd led the offense by going 3-for-3 with three RBI. Rose, Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn), and Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) each had two of the team's 11 hits.
 
In the nightcap the Panthers again scored four in the first inning to take the lead, with doubles by Boyd and Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park H.S./Victoria, B.C.) providing some of the firepower. Unlike in game one, Jefferson responded in the second, plating eight runs before Jorden Updyke (Candor H.S./Candor) could come on in relief and end the inning.
 
From that point on, the Panthers slowly worked their way back into the game. TC3 scored a single run in the bottom of the second and two more in the third. While Updyke was holding Jefferson hitless, the Panthers came all the way back and tied the game in the sixth. In the seventh Updyke finally allowed a single, but closed the door on the Cannoneers to complete a standout relief performance. In the bottom of the inning, his teammates made him a winner.
 
After an out to open the inning, Boyd drew a walk. He remained on first after fly out, bringing Billy Crowe (Bath-Haverling H.S./Bath) to the plate. The freshman catcher drilled a ball down the left field line, bring Boyd all the way around to score the game winning run.
 
Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) led the way by going 3-for-4, including a double, and scoring three runs. Sandberg, Siracusa, Boyd, and Seth Cameron (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) each had two hits in support of Updyke. Updyke earned his first collegiate win with a line of five and third innings pitched, no runs, one hit allowed, and two strike outs.

Boyd led the offense by going 3-for-3 with three RBI. Rose, Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn), and Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) each had two of the team's 11 hits.
 
In the nightcap the Panthers again scored four in the first inning to take the lead, with doubles by Boyd and Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park H.S./Victoria, B.C.) providing some of the firepower. Unlike in game one, Jefferson responded in the second, plating eight runs before Jorden Updyke (Candor H.S./Candor) could come on in relief and end the inning.
 
From that point on, the Panthers slowly worked their way back into the game. TC3 scored a single run in the bottom of the second and two more in the third. While Updyke was holding Jefferson hitless, the Panthers came all the way back and tied the game in the sixth. In the seventh Updyke finally allowed a single, but closed the door on the Cannoneers to complete a standout relief performance. In the bottom of the inning, his teammates made him a winner.
 
After an out to open the inning, Boyd drew a walk. He remained on first after fly out, bringing Billy Crowe (Bath-Haverling H.S./Bath) to the plate. The freshman catcher drilled a ball down the left field line, bring Boyd all the way around to score the game winning run.
 
Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) led the way by going 3-for-4, including a double, and scoring three runs. Sandberg, Siracusa, Boyd, and Seth Cameron (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) each had two hits in support of Updyke. Updyke earned his first collegiate win with a line of five and third innings pitched, no runs, one hit allowed, and two strike outs.

The 2010 Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team stands on the verge of making history. The Panthers won two games against Finger Lakes Community College Saturday, 8-4 and 5-2, to improve to 13-13 in the West Division and in sole possession of fourth place. The Panthers need either a win in one of the team's final two division games, or a single Finger Lakes loss in its final four games to clinch the first baseball playoff bid in the history of TC3 baseball. With Saturday's results Finger Lakes drops to 10-14 in division and 11-26 overall. TC3 is 17-21 overall.
 
Both games featured a combination of strong pitching ad timely hitting. Game one saw Lane Warner (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Cuyler) toss a complete game, allowing just two earned runs and no walks while striking out three. Cody Rose (Candor H.S./Candor) homered in the second to give TC3 a 2-0 lead, and after Finger Lakes rallied in the top of the third to tie the game, a Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park H.S./Victoria, B.C.) sacrifice fly in the bottom of the inning capped a two-run rally to put the Panthers back on top. Four runs in the fourth, keyed by hits from Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn), Sandberg, and Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn), made it 8-2. Single runs by Finger Lakes in the fifth and sixth innings brought it to 8-4, but Warner closed out the game in the seventh by setting down the Lakers in order for the fourth time in the game.
 
Siracusa went 3-for-3, and Zambito and Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) each had two hits. Sandberg finished the game with two RBI, two runs scored, and three stolen bases.
 
Siracusa was the star of game two, striking out eight on the mound while allowing just a single earned run. The Panthers gave him a lead in the first, scoring a pair in the bottom of the inning. After Finger Lakes cut it to 2-1 in the third, the home team picked up a big run in the fourth.
 
Sandberg opened the inning by getting hit by a pitch. He stood on second base with two out, when Josh Boyd (Upper Room Christian H.S./Hempstead) came through with a clutch double, scoring Sandberg to make it 3-1. After another shutdown inning by Siracusa, the Panthers were in a similar situation in the bottom of the fifth.
 
Billy Crowe (Bath-Haverling H.S./Bath) led off with a single, and moved to second on a walk to Quick. Zambito bunted to move both into scoring position, but after a strike out, Siracusa came to the plate with two outs. He delivered with a two-run double, making it 5-1. He made it hold up, striking out two of the three batters he faced in sixth, and ending the game with a strike out.
 
Siracusa went 2-for-3 with three RBI in game two.

A five-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning gave the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team a dramatic 11-10 win in game one of a doubleheader with Erie Community College Tuesday. The Panthers split the doubleheader, dropping the second game 12-6, to move to 15-19 overall and 11-11 in the West Division. Erie is now 17-12 and 14-4 in division.
 
In the opener, the Panthers needed two rallies to pull out the win. After falling behind 5-0 in the first three innings, TC3 scored three runs in the bottom of the third without recording a hit, thanks to four walks, an error, and a sacrifice fly. In the bottom of the fourth, the Panthers again put up three runs, but this time Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park H.S./Victoria, B.C.) provided a big hit. With two outs and two on, Sandberg lifted a long fly over the right field fence for his fourth home run of the season, giving the home team a 6-5 lead.
 
Erie reclaimed the lead with three in the sixth, and after scoring two runs with two out in the seventh, appeared to have the win in hand with a 10-6 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh. In the home half, Sandberg led off with a single, followed by a walk to Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn). Cody Rose (Candor H.S./Candor) beat out an infield hit to load the bases with no outs, and Lane Warner (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Cuyler) singled to score two and make it 10-8. A sacrifice bunt moved the tying runs into scoring position with one out. Pinch hitter Hairo Melenciano (George Washington H.S./New York City) was hit with a pitch, loading the bases for Billy Crowe (Bath-Haverling H.S./Bath). Crowe's ground ball towards the middle was fielded, but Erie committed an error at second base trying to turn the double play. As the ball rolled away from the shortstop, Rose scored and Warner followed to the plate, but Erie was able to track down the ball and throw Warner out at the plate, making it 10-9 with two outs and two on. Co-captain Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) ripped a shot that ate up the second baseman, allowing pinch-runner Michael Elkin (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) to cross the plate with the tying run and bring up Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn). The sophomore co-captain came through with the game-winner, lining a clean single to left to score Crowe.
 
Eric Conway (Auburn H.S./Auburn) earned win, pitching five innings in relief. Sandberg finished the game 2-for-4 with four RBI and Zambito went 2-for-3. Warner went 1-for-3 with 3 RBI.
 
Game two saw the teams trade roles, with the Panthers taking the early lead and Erie clawing back. TC3 scored two in the first and another in the second to lead 3-1. Erie tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the fourth, but the Panthers retook the lead with a run in the bottom of the fourth only to see Erie tie it back up in the fifth. The home team got into trouble in the sixth, allowing four unearned runs after two outs to trail 8-4. A two-out, two-run double from Siracusa in the bottom of the sixth cut the deficit to 8-6, but another four-run inning for Erie in the seventh put the game away.
 
Quick had a strong game two, gong 2-for-4 with three runs scored. Siracusa went 2-for-4 with three RBI and Sandberg went 1-for-4 with a double.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team snapped it season-worst five-game losing streak Sunday with a win over the nation's seventh-ranked team. After dropping the first game 13-1, the Panthers came back to win the second game 7-4. TC3 is now 9-15 overall and 5-7 in West Division games. Niagara is now 17-3 overall and 7-1 in division.
 
After a sloppy first game that saw five TC3 errors allow Niagara to blow open a game that was tied 1-1 heading into the fifth inning, the Panthers came back and put together a solid seven innings in the second game. Starting pitcher Cody Rose (Candor H.S./Candor), who provided one of the bright spots in the first game by going 3-for-3 at the plate, kept the visitors at bay most of the way. He scattered eight hits over six innings while striking out eight hitters, including three straight in the sixth inning. After the first two hitters reached base in the seventh, Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) came on to close out the game, earning his first save of the year.
 
Offensively, Siracusa was one of three Panthers with two hits in game two. Joshua Boyd (Upper Room Christian H.S./Hempstead) and Brent Stull (Lansing H.S./Lansing) each had two hits, including a double, and two RBI.

Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) paced the 11-hit attack, going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI and a double. Eric Conway (Auburn H.S./Auburn) earned the win in relief, throwing three and third innings, allowing no runs on one hit while striking out four.

The combination of strong pitching and balanced hitting helped the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team earn a doubleheader split at Community College of Baltimore County-Dundalk Wednesday. The Panthers dropped the opener 6-2 before taking the nightcap 12-1 behind a ten-strikeout performance from pitcher Eric Conway (Auburn H.S./Auburn). TC3 is now 2-5 on the season, with all of its games coming against D-II teams. Dundalk is now 7-6.
 
Ryan June (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) took the loss in the opener, with his strong effort undermined by a tough fifth inning that saw him give up four runs. Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) went 2-for-2 with an RBI to lead the six-hit attack.
 
Game two featured Conway in control, striking out ten and walking none while allowing just three hits and one unearned run in seven innings. The offense rapped out nine hits, with Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park H.S./Victoria, B.C.). Joshua Boyd (Upper Room Christian H.S./Hempstead) and Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each collecting two hits. Siracusa went 1-for-3 with three runs scored and Boyd had a team-best three RBI.
 
TC3 returns to Maryland Saturday for a doubleheader against the Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville.

Panthers Split Sunday Doubleheader

Game 2 Box

Sunday, March 07, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team earned its first win of the season, splitting a doubleheader with Camden County College (N.J.) Sunday. TC3 dropped the opener 7-1 before bouncing back to take the nightcap 14-6. TC3 returns home with a record of 1-3 while Camden is now 3-1.
 
It took a while for the bats to wake up Sunday, as the Panthers managed just four hits in seven innings in the opener. Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) picked up the lone RBI, driving in Hairo Melenciano (George Washington/New York City) in the fifth after the freshman reached with a double. At the time, it brought TC3 to within four at 5-1, but the home team added a pair of runs in the fifth and held the Panthers scoreless the rest of the way to make the final 7-1.
 
The second game was a different story from the opening inning. TC3 exploded out of the gate, plating five runs in the top of the first to take its first lead of the season. It almost didn't last the inning, as control troubles on the mound for TC3 starter Eric Conway (Auburn H.S./Auburn) allowed Camden to score four runs on a single hit in the bottom of the inning. TC3 added a two runs in each of the second and third before Camden scored a single run in the bottom of the third to make it 9-5. Conway recorded a single out in the fourth before leaving the game with an unusual line of six runs allowed, a single hit, six strikeouts, and ten walks. After the first relief pitcher as unable to record an out, Ryan June (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) came in a closed down Camden. Pitching in his third game of the weekend, June went the final two and two-thirds of an inning, allowing no runs on three hits while striking out two. TC3's offense added five runs in the sixth for a cushion, and the game ended after the bottom of the sixth due to darkness.
 
Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park/Victoria, B.C.) had a huge game at the plate, blasting a three-run home run while going 3-for-4 with seven runs batted in. Joshua Boyd (Upper Room Christian/Hempstead) and Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each homered for the winners, with Zambito finishing 3-for-5.
 
TC3 travels to Maryland this weekend for three games against CC Baltimore County-Dundalk. The two teams play a single game Friday before hooking up for a doubleheader Saturday.

Saturday, March 06, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team dropped its season-opening doubleheader Saturday, losing at Camden County College (N.J.) 2-1 and 13-3. It was also the season opener for the home team.
 
Saturday's first game marked the first time this year the Panthers have been able to do any work outside, and it showed early with a slow start offensively. TC3 struck out ten times in the opener, but strong pitching from starter Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) and reliever Ryan June (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) kept the Panthers in the game. A run by the home team in the bottom of the sixth broke the 1-1 tie and gave Camden the win.
 
Dustin Sandberg (Lambrick Park/Victoria, B.C.) went 2-for-2 to lead the Panthers at the plate. Joshua Boyd (Upper Room Christian/Hempstead) went 1-for-3 with an RBI.
 
The strong pitching that carried game one deserted the Panthers in game two. Three TC3 pitchers combined to issue 14 walks and hit five batters in just four innings of work as Camden scored 13 runs, including ten that came with two outs in an inning. Boyd and Cody Rose (Candor H.S./Candor) each went 1-for-1 with an RBI in the loss.
 
TC3 and Camden hook up again Sunday for a doubleheader before the Panthers return home.
