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 (2nd year).
The program made strides in 2012, matching the total wins over the last two years (14 in 2012, 14 total 2010-11), increasing the win total from the previous year by 6 wins, defeating a top 20 nationally ranked team, receiving a Mid-East Regional bid, and placing two players on the All Mid-East Region team.
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 setup 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”
