HALL OF FAMER: TYLER HOLLICK In 2012, Hollick was named the NJCAA DII National Player of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and unanimously voted the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference (ACCAC) Player of the Year. He was also selected to the first-team All-Region I and first-team All-ACCAC. That season Hollick had a .468 batting average with 61 stolen bases and 53 walks. Hollick is the CGCC career leader in batting average and stolen bases. The San Francisco Giants selected Hollick in the 14th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Hollick signed with the Giants and played for three teams in their organization. In 2013 as a member of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, he led the Northwest League with 43 runs. Hollick retired from professional baseball after the 2014 season. “Tyler is the most dedicated player I have had the pleasure to coach,” said Russell Luce, CGCC Head Baseball Coach. “He had the ability to work without tiring, and more importantly, the ability to produce in all situations. I think the best thing about him was his joy in playing. He was a great teammate.” Hollick is a native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He currently serves as the General Manager and 18U Head Coach of the Okotoks Dawgs Academy, a high-performance youth baseball program, based in Okotoks, Alberta. He and his family will be in attendance at Saturday’s ceremony. CGCC'S BASEBALL PROGRAM CGCC’s Baseball program boasts an impressive roster of major and minor league players.
