February 1, 2013

While the current MGCCC baseball team continues to prepare for the 2013 season, head coach Gary Rath and his staff have received commitments from seven players for the 2014 campaign.

“We are extremely proud of these early commitments to the MGCCC baseball program,” Rath says. “This class boasts some of the best hitters in the state, and all of them have championship experience within their respective programs.”

The players include the following:

RICHIE CLARK (UTILITY) – LONG BEACH HIGH SCHOOL: Right-handed hitter who helped lead LBHS to the 2010 state championship as a sophomore.  Hit .398 with four homeruns as a junior.

JAMES LAND (1B)- HARRISON CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL: Cousin of former MGCCC and MLB player Matt Lawton, Land is considered one of the best left-handed hitting prospects in the state.  Hit .367 with six doubles last season as he led HCHS into the final round of the MHSAA playoffs.

TYLER RACHEL (RHP/INF) – BRANDON HIGH SCHOOL: True two-way position player for Brandon High School.  He was 5-2 with a 2.64 ERA while hitting .337 as a junior.

BRANDON WARSHAW (INF) – BAY ST. LOUIS HS: Hit .443 with nine doubles and one homerun for the Tigers in 2012.

MATT TRIGG (UTILITY) – WAYNE ACADEMY: Hit .507 with seven doubles and three homeruns for Wayne Academy in 2012.

HUNTER BRANNAN (INF) – GEORGE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL: Hit .308 last season for the Rebels, was an invited member of the Cincinnati Reds travel squad, and is coached by former MGCCC player Brandon Davis.

WINSTON WILSON (C) – ST MARTIN HIGH SCHOOL: Strong arm and outstanding defensive catcher who plays for Greg Williams at SMHS.

In the last four seasons, MGCCC earned a second-place finish at the 2012 MACJC tournament and competed in the Region 23 tournament. The program has also moved 40 players (22 to Division 1) to the next level.
