    Three in one draft from the Tribe! A nice statement about our program for sure.

    And it appears our junior star hurler will be back next year...not drafted as of yet.

    Great, there is a Yankee's team in our league, Charleston Riverdogs. I do find it ironic that Charleston, the birthplace of the War for State's Rights, has a Yankee's farm team. I thought the federal occupation was over a long time ago?

    It reminds me of that old Bugs Bunny cartoon -- "The Yankees are in Chattanooga!"

    The same guy who is a co-owner of the Riverdogs, Peter Freund, is also a minority owner of the Yankees. He also just bought the Wilmington Sharks of the Coastal Plain League here in town. Cool guy.

    According to today's USA Today, Nick Thompson has agreed to terms with the Cardinals.

    David Katz became one of the most honored Tribe baseball players of all time today as he was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers 1st Team All-American, 2nd Team All-American by Baseball America and Player of the Year by the Division I ECAC. This goes along with being named to the other 1st Team All-American Baseball Team by Collegiate Baseball a couple of weeks ago. David was also a semi-finalist for the Golden Spikes and Dick Houser national awards as POY in collegiate baseball.

    Best of luck to Katz if, as expected, he signs with the Mets, concluding a spectacular three-year career
    with the Tribe. He was something to see every time he came to bat in Plumeri. Calm and cool at the plate.

    Katz signed and starts play this weekend for the Mets' Class A farm team, Brooklyn of the NY-Penn League..
    this team is situated at a beautiful park in Coney Island, so Mike gets a nice summer in NYCity to boot.

    Nick Thompson begins play tomorrow for the Cardinals' State College (PA) team, also in the NY-Penn Class A League. So Nick and Mike will be playing against each other. Lindemuth is already playing for the Yankees Class A team in Florida.

    Both Katz and Thompson were quoted in the Daily Press this morning as saying how much they enjoyed playing at W&M this season. Thompson intends to go on to medical school eventually...he is completing his masters at W&M. Michael said it was hard to leave his teammates and coaches at W&M, how much he'll miss them, and that the Mets will be paying for him to return to Williamsburg and finish his final two semesters.

    A great story and examples of two young men who truly define the term student athlete.

    Katz went two for five with two doubles and an rbi over the weekend...an auspicious start for big Mike,
    playing for the Mets' Brooklyn Cyclones.

    Nick Thompson is two for thirteen; not a great average but one was a home run yesterday and the other a base-cleariong double. Nick has five rbis in his first weekend for the Cardinals' State College farm team.
