                  Dan Kaczrowski and the rest of the Hamline University baseball team started their 09 season off in an impressive way. In the first game of a DH with North Central (MN) Hamline defeated N. Central 17-1 and in the 2nd game of the DH they downed N. Central 16-0. You can read the game recaps here.

                  Dan Kaczrowski (Hamline) is a senior ss from St. Anthony, MN. Even though he probably is a little-known prospect, he was just about the best hitter in the CICL last summer. While playing for Danville, he hit .389/.512/.452 in 203 at-bats. He scored 41 runs, drove in 35 and hit 2 homers for the Dans. He walked 17 times and was fanned just 8 times.

                    Despite Loss, Bralver Has Big Game

                    The Emory baseball team fell in defeat to Birmingham Southern today. There was at least one bright spot for Emory though. Senior outfielder, Steve Bralver went 3 for 5 with 2 doubles and 3 rbi's. He also scored 1 run today. Steve is a 6-2/195 pound native of Honolulu, HI. He played for the Hawaii Aliis of the Hawaii Collegiate Baseball League this past summer. He hit an astounding .396 in 111 at-bats. He scored 23 runs, drove in 31 and his extra-base hits were 12 db's-2 tr's-3 hr's respectively. He had an excellent bb/k ratio of 14/18 and he also stole 5 bases. All this lead to Steve being one of the top prospects and best players in the league last summer.

                            By all accounts yesterday, Shaeffer Hall was in total control yesterday. He kept the Air Force Academy hitters off balance all game. He was in total command of all his pitches. He walked the first batter he saw, but he then proceeded to retire the next 17 batters. This was the Jayhawks first complete game no-hitter since 1980. Shaeffer pitched for the Falmouth Commodores last summer. He went 1-1 and sported a 2.41 era in 18.2 innings pitched.
