RCC starts baseball season with strong team

With the 2013 season beginning, Rappahannock Community College’s men’s baseball program fields 19 players who have come from all over the state, and beyond, to join the college’s renowned team. The Gulls’ spring lineup includes Xavier Barriere of Miami, Florida; Brady Batterfield, Norfolk; Christopher Beacorn, Stafford County; Marcus Bumbrey, Fredericksburg; Ricky Castro, city of Richmond; Christopher Carter, Caroline County; Greg Fleming, Kyle Rodriguez, and Jeremy Sandifer, all of Virginia Beach; Thomas Gill, Williamsburg; Deon Hammond, Essex County; Chris Lewis, Glen Allen; Tyler Lloyd, Louisa County; Josh Mason, Austin Owens, and Kellyn Simons, all of Chesapeake; Jonathan Munn, Mechanicsville; Tyler Ross, Ashland; and Jacob Stephens, Halifax County. Head coach Jack Moore is ably supported by assistant coach Mickey Robertson, whose daughter Erin is the team manager.

The RCC program aims to produce well-rounded scholar-athletes. Many of these young men plan to earn bachelor’s or master’s degrees; as well as several who aspire to sports-related careers, they hope to enter such professions as real estate, architecture, engineering, dentistry, or retail sales. They cite such varied interests as drawing, reading, music, hunting, fishing, video games, weightlifting, and a number of other sports in addition to baseball.
