Update on Purdue Baseball Players in Summer Leagues

facebooktwitterreddit

This past season Purdue’s baseball team had what is probably their best season in the history of the program.  The Boilers finished with an overall record of 45-14; 17-7 in the Big Ten. This secured them an outright Big Ten Title and a one seed in the Big Ten Tournament which they went on to win. After being selected to host a regional in the NCAA Tournament they were eliminated from the tournament by the Kentucky Wildcats.

After the season ended some current players went on to try and carry that success onto summer leagues across the Midwest and the East Coast. The leagues you can find them in are the Midwest Collegiate League, the Prospect League, the Northwoods League, and what is the best summer league out there, the Cape Cod Baseball League. Cape Cod has the best current collegiate players and almost all are prospects for high to mid round draft picks. Sean McHugh is currently playing in it and being invited to play there is a huge honor.
