Alexandria Technical & Community College is adding baseball to its Legends Athletics offerings starting in the spring of 2023 season.

Jason Fischer will be the inaugural head coach. Fischer comes to Alexandria from St. Cloud Technical and Community College where he coached the Cyclones for 10 seasons. The Cyclones won their fourth Region XIII Tournament this past season and placed fifth at the NJCAA Division III World Series.

Fischer has a career record of 295-85 and has guided four teams to the World Series. He has moved more than 70 players on to four-year schools.

In addition to coaching, Fischer will teach exercise science at the college. He has a bachelor’s degree in community psychology, as well as master’s degrees in physical education and sports management from St. Cloud State University.

“The opportunity to move to Alexandria Technical & Community College was too good to pass up,” Fischer said in a release announcing the move. “The importance of athletics and student experience is evident on that campus. That is an environment I want to be a part of.”


Baseball will be added to athletic offerings at Alexandria College that already includes clay target shooting, eSports, golf and competitive fishing. The baseball team will compete in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC).

Alexandria Technical & Community College is confident that athletics help build school pride, create student life experiences for all students and provides opportunities for student athletes who may not have considered Alexandria College otherwise. The school’s goal is to have more than 150 student athletes by the fall of 2023.

“The addition of athletics programs has created a renewed excitement for Alexandria College,” President Michael Seymour said. “We have been selective in our portfolio of Legends programs to make sure we are choosing financially viable options where there are opportunities and demand from students and the community.”
