Ferguson, Ford help SC Sluggers to runner-up tourney mark

Two Manchester University baseball players were part of the Summit City Sluggers' recent second-place effort at the World Baseball Congress wood bat tournament last weekend.

Rising sophomore Cory Ferguson (Fort Wayne, Ind.) and rising junior Elliott Ford (Rome City, Ind.) were on the Sluggers' roster. Summit City took wins in three of four games at Runkle Field in Portland, Ind. They earned wins over John's Jackers, the Miami Valley Wolverines and the Portland Rockets before John's Jackers held them off in a championship game rematch.

Summit City closed the 2014 season with a 28-11 record which included the Indiana Collegiate Baseball League regular season and tournament titles.
