MU players continue summer league success

Six Manchester University baseball players were part of the Summit City Sluggers' recent Indiana Collegiate Baseball League regular season and tournament championships.

Rising sophomores Cory Ferguson (Fort Wayne, Ind.) and Joey Covington (Muncie, Ind.); rising juniors Elliott Ford (Rome City, Ind.) and Derek Lamle (Columbia City, Ind.); and rising seniors Kyle Norris (Indianapolis, Ind.) and Jordan Nieman (Michigan City, Ind.) were all on the Sluggers' roster. Summit City went 18-4 during the league's regular season and then won three of four games in the postseason tournament last weekend at Huntington University's Forest Glen Park. The Sluggers are scheduled to compete at this weekend's sixth annual World Baseball Congress tournament at Runkle-Miller Field in Portland, Ind.
