Hiwassee College Baseball

The Tigers baseball program participates in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA), playing in the Mid-East Region.

The program is under the direction of Shane Gardner. Coach Gardner will be entering his fifth year in 2015-2016. The program has made some very good strides the past few seasons by increasing the win total each year and qualifying for the NCCAA National Tournament in four consecutive seasons.

The Tigers finished as Mid-East Region Runner-Up in 2014 and placed third in 2015. During the same span, the Tigers have placed three players on the NCCAA All American team and fourteen players on the All Mid-East Regional team and have been nationally ranked in the NCCAA finishing 12th in 2015. The Tigers also tied the all time program record of 30 wins in a season in 2015.

Our program year in and year out will play a very tough schedule with games against all divisions (NCCAA, NAIA, NCAA D2/D3, Junior College).

Our focus is on recruiting quality young men for our program. We have high expectations for our players both on the field and in the classroom. If you are interested in working out for our program, please call or email and we can set up a workout and campus visit for you.

To be eligible to play for the Tigers as a freshman, you will need to meet two of the following three requirements:

  • 2.0 GPA
  • 18 ACT/
  • Ranked in the top 50% of graduating class

Our programs motto is “Play Loose, Play Fast, and Have FUN”
