Former Illini starting out well in A ball

IMG_1336Former 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.

larscropped_thumbShawn 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!!
