INSIDE PITCH: VYPE Baseball Rankings, No. 5 Tompkins Falcons
No. 5--Tompkins Falcons Baseball
2022: 28-4 (District 19-6A Champions/Regional Quarterfinalists)
HC: Kenneth Humphreys
At a minimum, Tompkins baseball has been an Area Finalist dating back to 2015. Continuing their model of consistency, the Falcons reached the Regional Quarters on the heels of their 28-4 district title season last Spring.
However, a third-round debut won’t suffice for this year’s hungry Tompkins team. Senior SS Drew Markle will be the face of the Falcons’ program prior to joining the 2022 National Champions Ole Miss, following his upcoming graduation.
Other names to watch for include senior C/1B/3B Landon West (Rice), who led the team in RBIs (26). Ty Dagley (Houston Christian) is a versatile piece on the mound and the outfield, and 3B Adam Benavidez lit up the scoreboard last season with 10 extra-base hits and 23 runs.
Could this be the year of the Falcons?
