It was a busy summer for Texas Baseball as 23 current Longhorns and four newcomers stayed active with summer action throughout the country. Twenty-two players participated in collegiate summer leagues, while Jordan Danks spent the summer touring with the U.S. National Baseball Team.
Danks, who struggled early at the plate, rebounded to be one of Team USA’s top hitters and helped the squad earn a silver medal at the Pan American Games in Brazil. Playing in a team-high 35 games, he led the team with 37 runs scored, 14 more than the nearest teammate. Danks hit .287 with four doubles, two triples, two home runs, five stolen bases and 12 RBI.
The best part of Collegiate summer leagues is being able to go and watch the players that you have watched at the University. I went to several games this summer and was able to get to know the Players better that played at Texas. It is a more relaxed atmosphere and the boys are always more than accommodating to my Son. We were able to get pictures with the players that Played on the Coppell Copperheads team of the Texas Collegiate League. We were also able to get pictures with the pitching Coach for Texas (Skip Johnson) and autographs on a baseball.
My point is go and see a Summer League game.
