Three Panthers Named All-MSAC

May 25, 2016

2016 All-MSAC selections

Three Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball players have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference team. Sophomores Anthony Ferrezza (East Islip H.S./East Islip) and Dana Scarselletta (Auburn H.S./Auburn) were joined by freshman Matt Van Allen (West Genesee H.S./Camillus) on the All-MSAC team, giving the Panthers three of the 15 players honored. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams. The Panthers finished with a record of 12-6 in the MSAC, finishing second in the conference standings.

Ferrezza played in 42 games, all at shortstop. He finished the year with 51 hits, the fourth most in season in Panthers history, and his career total of 91 hits established a new Tompkins Cortland record. His batting average of .383 was second on the team and ranks as the sixth-best in program history, and his career average of .364 is the fifth-best ever for a Panther.

Scarselletta led the team in hitting with a .396 batting average, the fifth-best in program history. He played in 39 games and had two of the longest hit-streaks in program history; a nine-game streak in the middle of the season and a 10-game streak to end the year. The ten-game streak ranks as the seventh-longest in program history. He also was second on the team with two home runs.

Van Allen tied the program record with four hits in one game, led the team with 29 RBI, finished second on the team with 44 hits, and second with nine doubles. His .373 batting average was third-best on the team and his .517 slugging percentage was tops. As the team’s first baseman, he set a program record with 259 putouts in 39 games.

It’s the tenth straight year Tompkins Cortland has placed a player on the all-conference team, and the seventh time the Panthers have had at least three representatives.

Panthers Eliminated from Playoff Race

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Baseball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team was eliminated from playoff contention Tuesday when it lost both ends of a doubleheader to Finger Lakes Community College, 7-3 and 7-1. The losses drop the Panthers to 13-17 and into sixth place in the West Division (20-23 overall), mathematically eliminated from the playoff race. Finger Lakes improves to 23-7 in the West Division (39-14 overall). The Lakers, the second-place team in the division, had already clinched a playoff spot.

GAME 1: Finger Lakes 7, Tompkins Cortland 3

The Panthers trailed 1-0 after the visitors scored a run in the top of the first, and looked to answer in the bottom. Anthony Ferrezza (East Islip H.S./East Islip) led off the bottom of the first with a double and then stole third. Andrew Babcock (Cortland H.S./Cortland) followed with a walk, putting runners on the corners with no outs. But a base-running mistake cost the Panthers an out, and when the next two batters failed to get the ball out of the infield, the score remained 1-0 in favor of the Lakers. The deficit grew to 3-0 in the third, but this time, the Panthers answered in the bottom of the inning.

Ferrezza again started the rally, drawing a one-out walk. With two outs, Dana Scarselletta (Auburn H.S./Auburn) moved him to third with a single and Matt Van Allen (West Genesee H.S./Camillus) followed with another single to drive in Ferrezza. The rally ended with two runners on, keeping the score 3-1 after three innings. Finger Lakes tacked on four runs over the next three innings, making the score 7-1 in the middle of the sixth. The Panthers scored a single run in the sixth and seventh, making the final 7-3.

Van Allen finished the game 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI. Scarselletta extended his season-best hitting streak to 10 by going 2-for-4. Payten Boice (Homer H.S./Homer) took the loss on the mound, going five inning and allowing all seven runs while striking out three.

GAME 2: Finger Lakes 7, Tompkins Cortland 1

Both teams threatened early without scoring in game two. Over the first three innings, each team put runners in scoring position twice, but couldn’t deliver key hits. That changed in the fourth, when the Lakers were able to string together three hits to open the inning to get on the board. Eventually the visitors would plate four runs in the inning, knocking out starting pitcher Aaron Wintermute (Tully H.S./Tully). Relief pitcher Matt Socola (Haverling H.S./Bath) came on in the fifth, but struggled with his control, allowing two runs on a pair of hit batters, a walk, and a single. The Panthers lone run came in the bottom of the fifth, with Bryce Ryder (Palmyra-Macedon H.S./Palmyra) walking, stealing second, and then coming in to score on an RBI double by Kavon Ruffin (Bullard Havens Tech/Bridgeport, Conn.). After a walk and ground out put panthers on second and third, a pop out ended the inning and the Panthers’ last best chance to score. Finger Lakes added a run in the sixth and threatened in the seventh until Mickey Beach (Newfield H.S./Newfield) came on to record the final out. Trailing 7-1, the Panthers were able to put two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but couldn’t plate another run.

Tompkins Cortland managed just four hits in game two, with no Panther notching a multi- hit game. Scarselletta went 0-for-4 in the nightcap, ending his hitting streak at 10 games.

On Thursday the Panthers are scheduled to play at Erie Community College in a make-up of a rain out earlier this season. It will be the season finale for Tompkins Cortland.

Ryan Stevens

Head Coach

Ryan Stevens

Ryan Stevens returns for his second season as head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at TC3 from 2006 to 2010, took over as head coach for the 2014-15 academic year.

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 posting an overall record of 208-119. 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, including one, Jonathan Edwards, who is on a major league roster (Texas Rangers, pitcher). Two other of his players signed contracts with Major League affiliates: David Valesente (Pittsburgh Pirates organization, catcher) and Andrew Wall (Washington Nationals organization, pitcher).

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).
