The Big Ten's Web site had a neat idea leading up to the Olympics by featuring former conference baseballers who participated in the games.
Blake Monar, Hoosier recruit and Yankee draftee, threw a complete game 2-hitter in the Connie Mack World Series last night.
This comes from my favorite Yankee blog (though, admittedly there isn't much in the way of competition) Nomaas.org/draft.
That's all the time left for Blake Monar and the Yankees to come to agreement before the deadline for signing draft picks.
At present, no news is good news for the IU baseball team, and that's what I've got -- no news.
This from Baseball America. Alex Meyer's name has been thrown around a little bit on this blog, thought y'all might find this of interest.
The Red Sox have offered Greensburg (Ind.) High righthander Alex Meyer a $2 million bonus, but that offer has been pulled from the table and no deal is expected to be reached before tonight's 11:59 EDT deadline.
Hitting coach Sheldon Watkins has left the IU baseball program, a baseball source confirmed Friday night.
A baseball source tells the IDS that word is Blake Monar is not expected to sign with the New York Yankees but will instead opt to enroll at IU and play for Tracy Smith's Hoosiers.
And there's no new news on Blake Monar. I can't confirm tonight whether Monar signed with the Yankees -- though my last report (see below) indicated that he committed himself to coming to IU.
Unless Monar had some 11th-hour change of heart and decided to put his name on the line -- and again I stress no one has reported that as yet -- fans will get to see him looking more like this than like this.
Again, I stress that nothing is official, though I promise you Ryan and/or I will do our best to reach Monar tomorrow to get final confirmation that he is indeed Bloomington-bound.
A reader commented on my last post asking for a projected starting lineup for next year.
...for a) crossing up Blake Monar and Drew Leininger and b) not adding a rotation to my prediction. I left my brain somewhere outside Wheeling, W.
Though I'm a Chicago style hot dog kind of guy, let's go with just ketchup today. Let us take a look at the efforts of the Hoosier baseballers who spent their summers aiming to perfect their craft.
As many of you know, three Hoosiers took to the prestigious Cape Cod League this summer.
In our last post we talked Cape Cod, today we shift to the Great Lakes League which featured four Hoosiers over the summer.
Matt Carr was ridiculously good this summer for the Anderson (Ind.) Servants.
The righty had the lowest ERA of any IU pitcher last season and earned the same honor with the Servants.
Most important, the announcement of three new signings for this year's recruiting class.
One is known -- if you follow the Inside Pitch.
For info on Jake Dunning see here and here.
Wyatt Hoff from La Jolla, Calif.
This is the first of a couple of posts dumping to you my notes from a sitdown I had with Tracy Smith this morning over at Assembly Hall.
Here's the second installment of my notes dump following my interview with Tracy Smith yesterday.
Got this confirmed on my way home for the night, so it comes to you later than expected, and for that, I apologize.
Anthony Agnew, Anthony Cera, Brad Henke and Trevor McConnell have all left the IU baseball team, Matt Brady from IU media relations confirmed today.
Agnew and Henke decided to end their careers to focus on academics (which makes plenty of sense folks, college baseball is a gigantic time demand). Cera will miss the year with an arm injury, and it's unclear at present whether he will return to the team after the injury.
Our Alaskan correspondent, and former IDSer, Dan click was able to do what very few regular readers of Inside Pitch were able to do -- see Jake Dunning play ball this summer.
Click made it to one of the Goldpanners' games on June 28.
Dunning singled in three at-bats with 2 RBI and a run scored.
I had an extremely abbreviated interviews with two new Hoosiers, Blake Monar and Alex Dickerson.
Here's the highlights:
Dickerson on having his Poway (Calif.) High School teammate Drew Leininger on campus with him --
"It wouldn't really matter whether or not I had a teammate with me.
I ran into Andrew Means when doing interviews with the football team. And me being an IU baseball nerd, couldn't resist getting in some non-pigskin related questions.
On his summer in Billings, Mont.
