Bobcats close the season with a 19-22 record after two straight playoff loses to the Hounds.
Feelings around the field were nostalgic for the team as the season came to a bittersweet end. Being the first year since 2002, it was a special one for general manager, Mike Brown.
“Getting the Bobcats rolling again back into the MCL and to bring collegiate baseball back to Bloomington has been fun” Said Brown. “The kids made gelled together like a team and I am glad I could bring them together.”
Players head back to school in the fall, the Bobcat webpage will stay updated with statuses of players and their progress.
Leading the team in averages this year were Grant Anderson (.305) and Kurtis Minton (.295).
Just announced recently, pitcher Mitch Weis was named Pitcher of the Year in the Midwest Collegiate League, the first Bobcat ever to do so.
The Cats held home to six MCL All-Star’s this year. Garrett Shea, Pat Mollo, Mitch Weis, Cody Rogers, Grant Anderson and Kody Silverthorn all received the mid-summer honor.
Bobcats baseball is back, and until next season, go Cats!
Over and out.
