Titans assistant baseball coach Ryan Mummert has been selected to lead the Titans baseball team, according to Tacoma Community College Athletics Director Carl Howell. Mummert takes on the lead role with strong experience as a coach of winning teams. He takes over the position left by TCC Baseball Coach Donegal Fergus, who has accepted an assistant coaching position with Seattle University.

"I look forward to the challenge of continuing the success Coach Fergus established here," Mummert said. "I'm excited to work with the great players returning as well as the great recruiting class we have coming in. I know our players are excited to get started." Since coming to TCC, Mummert has coordinated the offense, worked with infielders, manned the 3rd base coaching box, and been a tireless recruiter for the Titans.

Mummert joined Tacoma from Midland College in Midland, TX, where he spent the last 3 years as an Assistant Coach, coaching infielders and hitters. Other duties included recruiting, field maintenance on Christensen Stadium and he also started the first ever Baseball Camps in the history of the program. At Midland, Mummert helped lead the Chaparrals to a 97-69 record and two NJCAA Regional Playoffs Berths. He worked with 38 players that moved on to four-year universities, 18 to Division I. While in Midland, Mummert also was Head Coach of the 18U Midland Drillers summer team.

In the summer of 2006 he was the infield and defensive coach of the Bellingham Bells of the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League.

Before arriving at Midland College, Mummert was an Assistant Coach at St. Martin’s University, a Division II school, in Lacey, WA. He coached infielders and hitters, in addition to coaching first base. Mummert also assisted with recruiting and travel while coaching the Saints.

In 2002 Mummert’s coaching career started as an assistant baseball coach at Sehome High School in Bellingham, WA, under Hall of Fame Coach Gary Hatch. Mummert coached at Sehome until 2004. In 2003-2004, he coached the Bellingham Post 7 Senior Legion.

Mummert graduated from Kennedy High School in Seattle where he played both baseball and football. While at Kennedy, Mummert led the Lancers Baseball team to 1998 State Runner-Up and 1999 State Champions. Mummert won the Team Batting Champion award in 1998 and was also named to the All-League and All-Area teams. In the summer of 1999, Mummert played for the Kent Bulldogs and helped them to a record of 59-19. The Bulldogs won the State and Regional Championships and placed 2nd at the Senior Babe Ruth World Series.

After High School, Mummert played at Bellevue Community College, where in 2001, he helped the team set a NWAACC record for the most consecutive playoff appearances. Mummert was also named All-North Division Infielder and team captain. Mummert graduated with a degree in Sports Psychology from Western Washington University in 2004.

"I want to thank our AD Carl Howell for the opportunity and I look forward to working together with all the great supporters here at TCC."
