After left-handed reliever Blaine Hardy became the 16th Lewis-Clark State College baseball player to appear in a major league baseball game on June 16, he has become a main part of his team's bullpen rotation.
Since being promoted to the Detroit Tigers, Hardy is 1-1 with a 2.51 era in 14 appearances, and has struck out 14 and walked eight in 14 1/3 innings of work.
The only other former Warrior currently in the big leagues is Brendan Ryan who is hitting .235 in 24 games as a defensive replacement for the New York Yankees. Ryan has a double and four RBI in his role as understudy to Derek Jeter in the Bronx.
Congrats to all our former Warriors, and we can't wait to see who will be number 17 to make it to the big show!
