One of the best two-sport athletes to matriculate at Transylvania University, Macy left a Pioneering legacy upon the Transylvania baseball team. Macy was a foundational member of the revamped baseball program in the late 1990s, competing for the Pioneers on the diamond from 1997 through 2000. The Pioneers relied on Macy’s all-around talents heavily in the early days, translating into high-volume numbers and leading to his reputation as a dependable everyday performer.  

As a junior, Macy set the Transylvania single-season record for strikeouts with 70. He followed up that campaign with a 10-5 record and a team-best 3.53 earned-run average in his final season with the Pioneers. In four years at Transylvania, Macy collected 270 career strikeouts.

Macy’s talents extended beyond the field as he competed for the Transylvania cross country team, where he helped the Pioneers finish fourth at the NAIA Mid-South regionals in 1998. He was named an NAIA Academic-All-American by achieving a 3.58 GPA as a biology major.
