As an addendum to our thread on Illinois very own college players, lets have a thread to highlight their achievements as they make them.

I ran across this one on the Patriot League Website....

Trey Frahler, Northfield, IL (New Trier) Named Patriot League Pitcher of the Week

Pitcher of the Week

Trey Frahler, Bucknell So., P, Northfield, Ill.

Frahler had a solid effort against a good Virginia Tech team, going seven innings with just one earned run allowed in a 2-1 loss for the Bison. He gave up six hits and four walks while matching a career high with six strikeouts. The Hokies hit just .231 off of Frahler in the contest. Virginia Tech scored 10 runs in the other two games of the series.

Atta boy Trey!

Congrats to Eastern Illinois' and Shepard HS's Mike Recchia. Mike got the W vs. #15 Oklahoma on Sunday, pitching 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 4K for the 8-6 victory.

For the season, Recchia is 3-0 with a 1.12 ERA and a .157 BA against.

WTG Mike! Nice win, nice start!
Congratulations to the Robert Morris Eagles. For the first time in school history, they have cracked into the NAIA top 25. Packed with local players. Coach Mike Kashirsky has really turned things around and has some great recruits coming in for 2010 as well. Coach Kashirsky took over the Windy City Thundebolts in mid-season last year. They were a .500 team at the time and under Kashirsky, he led them to the Frontier League Championship. Very talented young coach.

I had the extreme pleasure of having Adam work out at my facility this past winter. I can only say that he is one of the most humble and unassuming profesionals you could ever meet. What a terrific guy who approaches the game the way it should be approached...a TRUE role model.
Benet's Brian Roberts pitched 8 innings of 2-run ball in the 1st game of Illinois' double header today against Michigan State. Sandburg's Nick Chmielewski pitched the 9th and got the win.

In the 2nd game of the double header, Sycamore's Will Strack pitched a complete game shut-out.

Both games were 9 inning per.

Both Roberts and Strack are 2-0 on the season, Chmielewski is 2-1.

Today's Recap
Matt Davis at Eastern Kentucky (Prospect High School) is off to a nice start this season ba 456, slugging 781 7hr 10 doubles, 3 triples 51 runs scored and 29 rbi. I enjoyed watching this guy in high school, not the biggest kid around but he could swing it and also play anywhere on the field.
