With the hiring of former Savannah State University assistant coach Stanley Stubbs as Texas College head coach last year, the baseball program wanted the right hire to turn Steer baseball around. Texas College made the right choice in a proven winner. Stubbs collected his first career victories defeating Tougaloo College in a doubleheader 3-2 and 8-1 marking the start of his tenure at Texas College.
