Jordan to play baseball Midland College

MARION - Jordan Littlefield has yet to throw a pitch at the collegiate level, yet his talents and potential are already being sought by multiple programs.

Jordan LittlefieldSo much so that the college for which he committed to on Friday had to lure him away from another competitive program.

Surrounded by friends, family and coaches at the Marion Community Library, Littlefield ended all speculation about his athletic future as he signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Midland College on Friday.

"It's really exciting," Littlefield said about his decision to attend Midland. "I know they've got a really good baseball program, and it's a good team to be a part of."

For weeks prior to the signing, it seemed that Littlefield was on his way to the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio. He would have joined fellow Marion graduate Curtis Davis, who has committed to the NCAA Division II program for track and field.

"Before Midland came, I was almost 85 percent sure I was going to go [to Incarnate Word]," Littlefield said. "Then when Midland came along and made a better offer, it was just something I couldn't pass up."

Midland College competes in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference, which is part of Region 5 in the National Junior College Athletic Association's Division I.

The conference bills itself as "Pipeline to the Big Time" according to its Web site, which fits nicely with Littlefield's long-term baseball goals.

"Basically, (I want) to play and improve," Littlefield said. "I want to be able to throw a lot harder, I know that. Hopefully, in the next couple of years I'll be drafted."

As a member of the Midland College baseball team, Littlefield will experience some of the best competition the junior college ranks have to offer. The Chaparrals compete in the same conference with Howard College, the 2009 national champion in baseball.

Midland College is a prime destination according to a Washington Nationals scout that Littlefield talked to at a recent tryout for the National League club.

"[The scout] asked me where I was going to college, and I told him Midland, and he said he thought it was a really good place to go," Littlefield said.

Littlefield's future appeared bright even as a high school underclassmen, and his decision to attend Midland College should only bolster his potential.

"He was the heart and soul of this baseball program," Marion head coach Jason Fox said. "When I got here, I was told that I had a sophomore kid who was going too be special, and we did have something special."

The Bulldogs went 23-3 his sophomore year and finished the season ranked No. 5 in Class 3A. Fox said Littlefield was a big reason why.

As a senior, Littlefield compiled a 7-3 record and an ERA of 1.68 while striking out 105 batters in 62 1/3 innings. At the plate, he led the Bulldogs with a .585 batting average.

"He's got a bright future ahead of him," Fox said. "He'll got there and if he does what they tell him to do, we're going to see him play at the (NCAA) Division I level, if not higher."

Littlefield's reputation as a high school pitcher was well-known and respected throughout the state. Family friend and Seguin High School baseball coach Curtis Hosek said Littlefield could have helped his team during the season.

"He would have helped anybody," Hosek said.

In addition to his physical talents, Littlefield was a good teammate and dugout presence, according to Fox, and that can only add to his success.

"He never walked around the dugout like he was better than everybody else," Fox said. "He was playing the game he loved and that was all that mattered to him."
