Former Illini SS Shawn Roof is making the most of his second year in the minors. Currently, Roof is assigned to the Lakeland Flying Tigers, Detroit’s A team.
Right now, Roof is leading the club with a .409 batting average. Hopefully, management is now starting to take notice. The Lakeland Flying Tigers Blog, a team fan blog certainly has.
Shawn shot me an email and mentioned that Lars Davis hit a couple homers over the weekend. The former Illini catcher and Big Ten player of the Year is stationed with the Rockies class A affiliate, the Asheville Tourists.
Sure enough, Davis homered in consecutive days on April 12-13.
Good luck to both!!
