Cloud County Thunderbird Baseball
At Cloud County Community College, our goal every year is to run a first-class baseball program. To do that, we need your help. This fundraiser will help us to offset the cost of our upcoming season including needed miscellaneous costs for our team and will also provide support for future facility improvements.
We want to give our student-athletes the best opportunity to succeed and create as many new memories as possible. The Thunderbirds baseball program is asking for your assistance to help make this possible. Any donation is greatly appreciated and a receipt will be issued for your support.
A Message from Head Coach Eric Gilliland...
The tradition and culture of our baseball program at Cloud County has continued to evolve over the past few years and it could not have been accomplished without the generous support of families and alumni. Our coaching staff and team has a great passion for our program and college and we are surrounded by support from the Thunderbird Family. Our players also do an excellent job of preparing for success on and off the field.
Highlights from last year:
• 19 Players sent to 4-year programs, 5 with NCAA D1 programs
• LHP, Erik Sabrowski drafted and signed with San Diego Padres. Also named Jayhawk West Pitcher of the Year and NJCAA All-American Honorable Mention.
• Broke 12 school records. 28 in previous 2 seasons
• Constructed new on-campus state of the art indoor training baseball facility. Dunning Hamel Baseball Training Facility. Opened in March 2018.
• In 2018 had first winning season at Cloud County in 15 previous years.
My staff and I are hard at work each day planning, training and preparing our student-athletes for the rigors we face in the upcoming year.
The goals we hope to accomplish as players, coaches, and a program takes vision, commitment, and resources. Our program depends on the generosity from players, their families and friends, and alumni from within the Thunderbird community. This supporting cast is a critical part in the success of our program. This fundraiser will help us pay for program expenses and field improvements for the upcoming year. In order to continue to grow our program, fundraising is a crucial piece. Along with my staff, I would like to personally thank everyone for supporting our program and invite each of you to a game this year.
2019 is guaranteed to be an exciting season as we continue building a Standard of Excellence.
Head Coach Eric Gilliland
