Baseball - 2007
MIKE BROWN was a standout pitcher for the Coming West baseball team for three years. It was during that span he was the ace of the pitching staff, one of the best defensive outfielders when not pitching and for most of his career, the clean-up hitter. As a senior he led the Vikings to the Sectional championship and completed his career by being named all conference as a junior and senior. Following graduation, Mike attended Alfred State College where he put his name in the record books for two years. The southpaw ace of the staff led the Pioneers to their first Region III Championship and the first WNYAC Championship. He was a two-time winner of the Alfred State Baseball MVP and selected All-Region III twice and All-WYNAC twice. He finished second all-time in wins for the Pioneers, second in all-time strikeouts and first in shutouts plus a number of other top ten spots in the record book. From Alfred State, Mike went on to Mansfield University where he sparkled for the Mountaineers. He posted a 5-2 record in 15 games for Mansfield before completing his degree in Criminal Justice Administration. Upon graduation, Mike went into law enforcement in Delaware. Tragically, Mike died in a motorcycle accident in 2005.
