Ford, Norris earn ICBL all-star selections

Rising senior Kyle Norris (Indianapolis, Ind.) and rising junior Elliott Ford (Rome City, Ind.) were both named to the inaugural Indiana Collegiate Baseball League all-star game roster earlier this week.

Ford and Norris each play for the Summit City Sluggers of the four-team ICBL. The ICBL squad will take on an all-star team organized from the Fort Wayne 18-and-older adult league at Indiana Tech University's Warrior Baseball Field Sunday, July 6. First pitch is 6 p.m.

Norris, despite just joining the Sluggers, is out to a meteoric start at the plate, hitting nearly .600 (.579) with six doubles, a home run and eight RBIs through five appearances. Ford has been among the team's defensive leaders with a perfect 1.000 mark behind the dish which includes four assists and 30 putouts through 11 games played. Summit City is among the league leaders with a 14-7 overall and 12-4 league record going into a road game versus the Fort Wayne Panthers this evening.
