Central Alabama Community College baseball reached new heights in the 2012 season, breaking the school’s all-time win streak by not losing a game in the month of March before falling in the state tournament.
Central Alabama will send out 14 players from that roster to play at the next level of college baseball.
Led by ace Tanner Hicks on the mound, a Troy signee, fellow Trojan pitchers Jacob Noble, Mitch McLeod, Jonathon Black, Brewer Carter, Channing Ellis, Jacob Gibson and Trey Hammock all signed scholarships with D-I schools throughout the month of June.
Hicks led the Trojans with 102 innings on the mound this past season, finishing with a 1.76 ERA and a 10-1 record.
Noble, Hammock, Carter and Black all also finished with ERAs under 3.00 for the 2012 season.
In the field, two year starter Todd Thompson will be heading to Montevallo to play centerfield, while Chase Handley, also a two year starter at third base will head to the University of Alabama-Huntsville.
Another two year starter in the infield was firstbaseman Stephen Eldridge, who will return to his home state and play for Georgia Southwestern.
Shortstop Garrett Pitts was a welcomed addition as a sophomore transfer for the Trojans this past season, as the former Mississippi State infielder will now head to Troy University for his junior year.
