COLLEGE SPORTS: Keystone Toinductee Shevchik Into Hall Of Fame

August 10, 2018

Current baseball coach Jamie Shevchik will be the lone inductee when Keystone College hosts its Hall of Fame ceremonies on Oct. 13, but he also will be one of seven members recognized as cornerstones of the Hall as the La Plume institution celebrates its 150th anniversary. Shevchik, who played for Keystone in 1993-94, completed his 17th season as head coach of Giants, building the team into a regional power that has 17 appearances in the NCAA Division III tournament, played in two College World Series, including a runner-up finish in 2016, and has racking up an impressive, 574-186 record and a .755 winning percentage. In addition, seven of Shevchik’s players have been selected in Major League Baseball Amateur Draft since 2010, and 15 former Keystone players have signed as free agents with major league organizations. Topping the list of the seven cornerstones is the school’s most famous alum, National Baseball Hall of Fame original inductee Christy Mathewson, who represents the 1890-1920 era. Joining Mathewson and Shevchik (1990-present), the bookends of the cornerstone Hall of Famers, are Bill Seamans (1930s-40s, baseball, football, men’s basketball), Robert Kagler (1950s, men’s basketball, baseball), longtime former athletic director Michael Mould (1950s), Margaret Philbin (1960s, coach and administrator), Larry Fornicola (wrestling, 1970s) and Dennis Mishko (1970s-80s, men’s basketball, soccer). Ceremonies will be held Oct. 13 at 2:30 p.m. at Keystone’s Brooks Theatre. Contact the writer: sports@timesshamrock.com; 570-348-9125; @sportsTT on Twitter
