DC3 Baseball has announced the signing of 8 student-athletes for the 2013-14 season.  The coaching staff is very excited about the additions of these 8 young men.  Head Coach Phil Stephenson had this to say about the signees, "This recruiting class fills our needs with the departure of our current sophomores, and projects to be an outstanding recruiting class.  The group looks to be not only physical in stature but in ability as well.  We feel  they have an opportunity to make us better on the field, and will represent Dodge City Community College and our baseball program as quality student-athletes off the field."

Jerry Kearney- RHP

"Jerry is a strong, powerful RHP, who will come in and compete for innings right away.  He is a bulldog on the mound and can throw 3 pitches for a strike.  Jerry has pitched in some big innings for his High School and summer teams and will be counted on to pitch a lot this spring and summer."

James Park- 3B
6'1" 185 lbs  L/R
Silverthorne Collegiate Institute

"Brian is a lanky RHP that has the ability to pound the strike zone.  He is a very competitive kid and wants the ball in any situation.  Brian will be the workhorse for his High School team and will be in the mix to come in and compete for innings as a freshman."

Luke Crabb- RHP
6'2" 180 lbs  R/R
Fort Osage High School

Hayden Simmons- OF

Frenship High School

"Hayden comes from a very good High School program.  At the plate, he has the ability to find his way on base and be a threat to steal a bag.  Hayden is a good defensive OF and because of his work ethic, will continue to get better and better everyday."

Josh Williams- 1B
6'5" 225 lbs  L/L
W.A. Porter Collegiate Institute

Nathan Kelly- INF
6'0" 175 lbs R/R
Atrisco Heritage High School
