WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A number of Purdue baseball players set to return for the 2012 season will continue playing ball throughout summer, joining teams from Massachusetts to Los Angeles for NCAA-sanctioned summer wood bat leagues.
Rising juniors Kevin Plawecki and Nick Wittgren will be teammates on the Hyannis (Mass.) Harbor Hawks of the Cape Cod League, which is regularly considered the top summer wood bat league in the nation.
Jack DeAno, Pat Gannon and Cameron Perkins will also be teammates this summer, playing for the Waterloo (Iowa) Bucks of the Northwoods League. DeAno redshirted during the 2011 college season while sitting out as a transfer from Vanderbilt.
Andrew Dixon will also be playing in the Northwoods League, manning the outfield for the Duluth (Minn.) Huskies. However, Duluth and Waterloo are in different division of the Northwoods League and are not scheduled to square off in the regular season.
Meanwhile, Kyle Bischoff (Richmond, Ind. RiverRats) and Mike Sudbury (Springfield, Ill. Sliders) could face off in the Prospect League. Richmond and Springfield are scheduled to play July 21 in Richmond.
Elsewhere, David Miller has joined the Asheboro (N.C.) Copperheads of the Coastal Plain League, one of the top summer leagues in the south.
Lance Breedlove will be playing closer to home with the East LA Dodgers, a team affiliated with multiple amateur baseball associations, most prominently the Western Baseball Association.
Other returning Boilermakers could join wood bat league teams later this summer. PurdueSports.com will provide periodic updates highlighting Purdue players participating in summer leagues. Most summer leagues begin this week.
