Bobcat's Finish Third in Nation
In the Bobcat's second appearance (2014) at the NJCAA World Series tournament, the team finished third in the Nation. Lyndon Coleman, in his first year as PHSC men's baseball head coach, led the Bobcat's to win the Southeast District tournament, giving them the opportunity to play in the NJCAA College Division II World Series in Enid, Oklahoma.
The team showed grit and determination, keeping their fans on the edge of their seats with coming from behind in several games that finally led to the top four team play in the tournament.
PHSC Men's Baseball Program History
In 1992, PHSC's men's baseball started competing in the Suncoast Conference as a NJCAA Division I program. In just the third year of the program, PHSC finished runner-up in the 1994 FCCAA state tournament. Other state tournament appearances were in 1995 and 1997. Also in 1995, the team won the Suncoast Conference championship.
In 2010, the athletics program switched to Division II status. Since then, the men's baseball team has appeared in the NJCAA Region 10 District Tournament in North Carolina seven times. In 2014, we were NJCAA Region 10 Champions and advanced to the World Series finishing fourth nationally. We are proud to have had over 30 players sign professional contracts; many have gone on to top universities throughout the country. Most recently, Tyler Beck ('17) was was selected in the 2019 MLB Draft; he goes to Minnesota Twins in 30th round.
