Tommy Mace named to SEC Baseball Community Service Team

Florida junior pitcher Tommy Mace was named to the SEC Baseball Community Service Team.

Mace volunteered in a second-grade classroom at Littlewood Elementary School for more than 20 hours throughout the 2019-2020 season. While volunteering at the school Mace assisted students with homework and other classroom activities.

Mace also volunteered his time at the Climb for Cancer Brandon Ling Memorial Sports Camps, Florida’s annual sports camps for kids battling cancer. Mace assisted with the camp by helping set up and adjusting and modifying games and activities to ensure the safe participation of all campers.

On the field Mace was the Gators’ Friday night ace. The junior posted a 3-0 record and a 1.67 ERA. In addition he was a member of UF’s student advisory committee, where he participated in the Gators Leadership Experience — a pilot program that debuted last September with the goal of furthering the development of leaders during their athletic seasons.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
