Under current Head Coach, Galen McSpadden, the Seward County Community College baseball program has amassed a record of 986-546 over the past 29 years, which has included: 1 NJCAA World Series appearance; 5 regional tournament championships; 13 regular season conference championships; 18 All-Americans and 144 All-Conference players. The sustained success of Saints baseball has been a direct result of both the quality of players that have performed on Brent Gould Field as well as the quality of men that have continued their lives after Seward County. Winning has become a tradition for the Saints, and Seward County Community College would like to invite all of those who have been a part of it back to Liberal, Kansas (this Labor Day weekend) for the Inaugural SCCC Baseball Alumni Weekend.
