TJC Baseball traditions

3

Four-time National Champions, TJC baseball are enjoying their season. Coach Doug Wren bleeds the colors black and gold.

Wren is extremely proud of the Baseball program. They work hard for what they have accomplish. “We are invested in everything that we do. At the end of the day, we want the program to be different from every other program,” Wren said.

Wren coached at Weatherford in 2007 before coming TJC’s assistant coach from 2008-2009. From that he was named head coach in 2010.

The coaching staff and players really focus on the mindset of taking things day-to-day. Every year people expect them to make it back to the championship game, so it’s better to think that way.

“Players don’t talk about the tradition or legacy as much because, they already know the history of the program,” Wren said.

Often times older payers come back and get involved with the programs activities. Rather it be with camps, workouts or Alumni games. This program will always be home to these players.

The season is almost over, but the games that the team is looking forward to are against rivals Coastal Bend since those will impact playoff hopes. But, as a humbled as this program is, they’ll treat every game with respect.

“Teams that have a sense of entitlement fall off and our guys have to have that earning mindset,” Wren said.

The NJCAA Division 3 World Series will take place May 26-31 in Greeneville, Tennessee. TJC baseball hopes to add to their championship collection.

  1. It is great to see a coach that cares so much about not only the game but also each and every individual player! I love watching our boys play and go to as many of the games as I can.

  2. I love that this article shows the mindset of TJC and how the players and coaching staff are humbled and respectful to the game and to each other. College sports bring a lot of attention to a campus and I think it is so very important to put out a positive message and vibe.

  3. It just comes back to baseball being the most mental game out there. It is a very hard sport to play and it’s a lot harder than it looks. I’ve played baseball my whole life and when you see good baseball it’s a fun to watch but when it’s going bad it’s hard to watch. Hats off to these guys though, for pushing through and reaching levels college teams rarely get to.
