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 fourth year in 2014-2015. 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 three consecutive seasons.

The Tigers finished as Mid-East Region Runner-Up in 2014. During the same span, the Tigers have placed two players on the NCCAA All American team and seven players on the All Mid-East Regional team and have been nationally ranked in the NCCAA.

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”
