Bulldogs Lose Tough One, Get Ready for Indiana

"The Bulldogs couldn't overcome six errors Tuesday, losing 12-8 to Xavier at Bulldog Park. Dale Mueller had three hits for the Bulldogs and narrowly missed a home run in the ninth inning that would have brought Butler within a single run. Xavier improves to 3-5 on the season with the win, while the Bulldogs drop to 2-2 on the young season.
Mueller had two RBIs on the afternoon, the same total that Clayton Deeb and Matt Crews posted. The Bulldogs had 10 hits in the game, four fewer than the visiting Musketeers. Freshman Tony Barnes went 2-of-3 for Butler, scoring two runs.
Sophomore Luke Behning started for the Bulldogs, allowing eight runs in two innings of work. However, only two of the runs were earned. Behning took the loss (0-1). Brian Smith and Ian Matthews combined for seven innings of relief, scattering eight hits.
The Bulldogs return to action Wednesday with a 3 p.m. first pitch against Indiana at Bulldog Park. "


Butler Pounds Indiana State

The Bulldogs improved to 2-1 on the year after dismantling the Sycamores.

"EVANSVILLE, Ind. - A five-run fourth inning by Butler helped the Bulldogs claim third place in the Governor's Cup on Sunday with a 10-3 victory over Indiana State at Charles H. Braun Stadium.

Butler took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning. Second baseman Clayton Deeb reached first base on an error with two outs, then shortstop Stephen Gill homered to left field.

The Sycamores, listed as the visiting team, came back in the top of the third when they scored two runs to knot the score.

But Butler took the lead for good in the bottom of the fourth. Deeb led off the inning with a shot to left field, followed by two singles and a walk. First baseman Ryan Nance then hit a grand slam to right center. BU tallied two runs in the fifth and one in the seventh to pull away.

Nance led the offensive attack with four RBIs while Gill and right fielder Dale Mueller collected two hits apiece.

Bulldogs starter Randy Miles went five innings to pick up the win, striking out seven and giving up two runs on two hits. Sycamore hurler Jason Murray was tagged with the loss after giving up four runs on five hits in three innings of work."


Marks Enjoying Arizona

Tim Marks is enjoying his time in Arizona as part of the Independent League Showcase put on by a handful of Major League Baseball Scouts. Tim is currently 5-11 with a double during game competition. Tim will be playing selected groups of Brewer minor leaguers next week as the three week camp comes to a close. Scouts from the Rangers, Angels and Red Sox have shown interested in signing Marks and inviting him to minor league spring training. Good luck to Tim, more to come.....

Neshek Gaining More Fans

Shaq has been gaining legions of new fans on the internet by hooking by people up with signed baseball cards.

"STU GOT A NICE NOTE

Sometimes it's nice to read of people who enjoy the web site and to get feedback from the readers. Stu recently got a nice note from Pat Neshek, who pitched for the Quad City River Bandits until the All Star break last season when he got promoted to High A ball. He's a card and autograph collector as well and wrote to Stu to tell him how much he enjoyed the web site. He was also kind enough to send Stu several autographed cards of his, including a few Midwest League All Star cards. I did not get mine signed before he moved up, so Stu was kind enough to send one to me. Thank you Pat from both Stu and me."

Bulldogs Off to 1-1 Start

The Butler Bulldogs improved to 1-1 on the season today by beating the IPFW (according to Clink "I paid for what?") 5-3.
"EVANSVILLE, Ind.--The Butler University Bulldogs took advantage of five IPFW errors this afternoon to plate three unearned runs and post a 5-3 victory over the Mastodons in game five of the 2004 Governor's Cup at Charles H. Braun Stadium in Evansville.

The big blow came in the fourth inning, as Butler plated two unearned runs to grab a lead that it would never lose.

With IPFW leading 3-2 in the bottom of the fourth, Butler's Ryan Nance singled to lead off the frame. Matt Martino then sent a chopping ball to IPFW second baseman Brandon Armstrong, but as Armstrong was going to second for the force, he dropped the ball, allowing Nance to slide in safely and open the flood gates.

After a strikeout, Butler's Tony Barnes doubled to left field to plate Nance at tie the game at 3-3. A sacrifice fly by catcher Joe Dempsey pushed the lead to 4-3, and from there, Butler's pitching staff took over.

Pitchers Josh Rudolfi (1-0) and Matt Byzet did not allow a Mastodon runner to reach third base in the final five innings, and Byzet tossed four innings of one-hit relief to notch his first save of the year. Byzet also struck out six.

Rudolfi notched the victory by giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits in 5.0 innings of work. IPFW's David Zachary (0-2) took the loss by giving up four runs (two earned) on five hits in 4.1 innings of work.

Butler evens its record at 1-1 with the victory, while IPFW falls to 0-5 on the year. The Mastodons will play in the fifth place game on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. against a yet to be determined opponent."

Bulldogs Build For Season

The Butler Bulldgos will start full team practices next Monday for the 2004 season. The Dawgs are trying to build on back-to-back 30+ winning seasons and have plenty of pitchers back to help make it happen. The one set back for the Dawgs have been injuries. Justin McKinley, Mike Rosen, and Jeff Brown are all hoping to heal before the start of the season. Stay tuned for more...

Storey Picked Up By Expos

Former Bulldog star Eric Storey was picked up by the Montreal Expos in today's Rule 5 draft. Storey was recently in the Chicago White Sox organization. The Rule 5 draft occurs when players can be drafted from an organizations' double-A roster to another clubs' triple-A roster and also from an A-roster to a AA-roster (as in the case with Storey). Players who are drafted in the minor league portion of the draft are not required to remain on the roster of the club which drafts them and are not subject to being returned to their original club like in the Major League Rule 5 Draft. In return for the player, the original club receives $ 5,000 as cash consideration. Eric will most likely be playing for the Harrisburg Senators of the AA Eastern League this summer.


Halloween 2003

Once again, the Butler Baseball team was well represented on Halloween around campus. Check out the Photo Gallery....

Pictures From The Vault

Throughout the history of this website we have offered you the viewers many pictures. Usually we pick pictures to go with a story or that would look good to be on the site. But whatever happened to the pictures that didn't look good and had great stories behind them? This question is finally answered with the section called "Random Times." These pictures contain classic images from the 2001, 2002 and 2003 seasons. Most pictures have rarely been seen by the majority of the public. Some of you may know the story behind them and most of you will probably have no clue what is going on, either way enjoy and have some fun looking back.


Road Trip

Several members of the Butler Bulldogs made the voyage to Atlanta to see game 5 of the Division Series between the Cubs and Braves. Crews, Costello, Mueller, Olson, Martino, Rosen, Miles, Marks, and Beck all made the trip to see the 5th and deciding game. Everyone had a good time in the dirty South, but no one saw Ludacris. However,the night was full of stars, including Wood, Sosa, Sheffield, Jones and Twins Scout Billy Milos.

Shaq Off To Fast Start in Desert

Pat Neshek struck out the side in one inning of work in his first Arizona Fall League appearance for the Scottsdale Rafters.

Youth Beats Experience

The 2nd Annual Butler Baseball Alumni Game was won by the current Dawgs 10-5. Eddie and Storey put on a show during BP as balls were hit over the day care and over the scoreboard. The Alumni led 5-3 in the seventh before the varsity dawgs mounted a comeback. Matt Crews led off the game by hitting a monster bomb to center field. The ball traveled an estimated 450 feet and will be counted as Crews' long ball cut. Hit machine Justin Keever led all hitters with a 3-4 performance and Storey chipped in a double and 2 rbi single. Solid pitching performances were turned in by Ryan Harber, Yates and THE CHOSEN ONE (Neal). Other highlights included Luke Murphy beating out a slug bunt and Tim Marks stealing a base. Check out the photo gallery for all the pics....

Shaq Going to the Desert!!!!

Pat Neshek received one of the highest honors in minor league baseball today as he was invited to play in the prestigious Arizona Fall League. The AFL is the minor league equivalent to the Cape Cod League and features the top prospects from every major league organization. Shaq will be playing with the Grand Canyon Rafters and will be managed by current Yankees 3rd base coach and former World Series Champion Willie Randolph. The League starts the first of October and runs until Thanksgiving.   

More Pub For Neshek

From a recent Baseball America article:
"MINNEAPOLIS—Joe Mauer is the most famous Minnesotan taken by the Twins in recent drafts, but he is not the only one.

Righthander Pat Neshek was drafted in 2002, one year later than Mauer, and is already a teammate of the 2001 No. 1 overall pick at Double-A New Britain.

Neshek, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound reliever, opened the season at low Class A Quad City before getting promoted to high Class A Fort Myers and finally New Britain.

He brought the experience of playing college baseball with him, and that, combined with a herky-jerky delivery that baffles hitters, put him on a fast track. Neshek was 3-2, 0.52 in 34 innings at Quad City and 4-1, 2.15 in 29 innings at Fort Myers before moving to the Eastern League.

“He throws strikes and his numbers are pretty good,” farm director Jim Rantz said. “He throws strikes no matter what level he’s at, and he’s a heck of a competitor.”

Neshek is viewed as more of a set-up guy than a closer, and has spot started for the Rock Cats. He has a three-quarters delivery, but getting to the release point is what gives hitters fits.

“He has kind of a funky, double-pump delivery with a lot of deception,” Rantz said. “His fastball has good sink and can touch 91, and he throws a hard slider.”

Neshek, 22, was selected in the sixth round of the 2002 draft out of Butler. He grew up in Brooklyn Park, a Minneapolis suburb, where he was an all-state player at Brooklyn Park High.

At Butler, he set school records for single-game (18), season (118) and career strikeouts (280). He was a Cape Cod League all-star in 2001 and began his professional career at Rookie-level Elizabethton in 2002, going 0-2, 0.99 in 27 innings.

If there are any questions about Neshek, they should be answered when he spends an extended period of time in one league. That would give hitters more chances to get used to his delivery.

“There’s something to be said about that, how he would handle it the second time around,” Rantz said. “But he hasn’t struggled at all thus far.”



Alumni Game Set For Sunday, September 21at 2:00

No official start time has been set, but the 2nd Anual Alumni Game will take place on September 21st (2:00 pm)at the Davey Complex. The game is already a sell out and extra seats are going to be put in on the day care center roof.

Albert and Shaq in Playoffs

Jeff Albert and Pat Neshek are both playing on teams that made the playoffs. Albert's Washington Wildthings are taking on the Gateway Grizzlies in Frontier League action while Shaq's New Britain Rock Cats are playing the New Haven Ravens.

Alumni Game Sunday, September 21

The anual Alumni Game has been tentatively scheduled for Sunday, September 21st. More details to come....

Frontier Connection

Tim Marks and Jeff Albert have been doing battle on the field this week as the Washington Wildthings have played the Richmond Roosters. It isn't as intense as the Butler World Series, but the stakes are high nevertheless. In front of an obnoxious crowd at McBride stadium, a few unidentified hecklers taunted the current richmond catcher in hopes of seeing Tim take over behind the plate. Jeff Albert hit numerous balls on the street in bp, bringing back memories of Lou Johnson's epic blast (The same day Lou claimed to "own" the city of Richmond). The only thing missing was a Reagan Allee appearance, although Clucky the mascot has not been accounted for yet.

Neshek To Participate in Instructional League

Pat Neshek will be taking part in the Minnesota Twins' instructional league this September in Fort Myers, Florida. Check out the photo gallery of Shaq sporting a patriotic New Britain jersey under Pictures, I hear the camera man is a real stud...

Dawgs Back on Campus

The Butler Bulldogs are back on campus and looking forward to starting another season at Davey Comlex. The Dawgs will hit the field for the first time on September 2.

Eddie Seen on ESPN

Eddie Olszta was recently seen on an ESPN story featuring fellow Joliet teammate Pete Rose Jr. Eddie was chilling in the batting cage while Rose was getting his hacks in.   

Albert Signs With Washington Wild Things

Congratulations to Jeff Albert who recently signed with the Washington Wild Things of the independent Frontier League. The Wild Things play in Washington, Pennslyvania which is just west of Pittsburgh and near the Ohio border. They are in the same league as the Richmond Roosters where Tim Marks is currenlty catching.

Neshek Promoted Again!!!!

Pat Neshek was just promoted to AA New Britain Connecticut in the Eastern League. The move is Shaq's second promotion this year and he is now only two steps away from the major leagues.

Neshek Update

Pat Neshek continues to own all batters that stand in his way. In an epic battle against former UIC star Curtis Granderson, Shaq chalked up another strike-out. This time it wasn't The Neal to end the conference tournament, but it was still just as dramatic. The UIC statistician still gave Granderson a triple for the at-bat because he saw three pitches.
Check out more Neshek photos by clicking above.


Summer Update

The Kelowna Krew has officially arrived back in the midwest. After a long summer of kicking it on the Okanogan, the troops headed home after missing the playoffs by only one game. Rumor has it that Luke Behning had to be hand-cuffed to the airport shuttle because he didn't want to leave. "I broke so many hearts in Canada, they were calling me the Mountie!" said Behning in a border interview. Crews and Smitty are done in Celina. Smitty was accused countless times of being in the mob, but nothing could be proven. Crews' crooked smile wasn't enough evidence to convict. The California connection is also home again. In perhaps the most interesting summer situation, the guys learned about grape vineyards, feeding livestock (Tormoehlen would be proud), umping Mexican League games, plumbing and drain installation, clashing uniforms, little league balls for bp, skiping out on restaurant and hotel bills and the art of the Tam. Oh yeah, they played some baseball too. Jay and PB went to Vegas on the way home, but neither of them got "lucky". The Northwoods guys still have a week left, keep up the good work.

Former Dawg on Fast Track to Oakland

Former Bulldog Dan Johnson is currently punishing pitchers in the Texas League. As a member of the Midland Rockhounds, a AA affiliate for the Oakland A's, Johnson is currenly 1st in the league in rbi (89)and 2nd in home runs (21).


Neshek Being Sold on Ebay?

Pat Neshek is currently on Ebay, but for sale??? It's true, the Fort Myers pitcher is now really the Ebay king as his cards are being sold to the highest bidder.

Olszta Drilling for the Jackhammers

Former Butler star Eddie Olszta is currently roaming the outfield for the Joliet Jackhammers of the independent Northern League. Check Eddie out here.


California Update

After many long nights living in the "Ranch", Pb and Jay have escaped to a host family near Randy. Mac is still living at the Ranch, but minimizes his time there. Through numerous walk-outs on hotel and restuarant bills, the San Francisco Seals are still scratching up enough money to keep playing. Randy is pitching really well and has been used as a starter and reliever. Jay and Mac are hitting well too. Mac has a sore arm due to a pitching escapade last week, but he is fighting through it. PB is in heaven (not to mention that every girl is blonde in California), not only does he get to DH, but he also is getting to hit infield. He needs a lot of practice on his catcher's pop-ups though. More details to come....

Troy Parton Update

Troy Parton is now the most feared hitter in Europe. He has given up pitching because no one can contain him at the plate. Troy had a two week break from baseball at the beginning of July and went on a tour of Europe hitting all the big stops including Paris, Rome, and London with his parents. Stay tuned for more details...

California Dreaming

The trip to California has been a little different than expected for Randy Miles, Jay Freeman, Justin McKinley and Paul Beck. Upon arrival, the four players found that they would be living on a Spanish "ranch" instead of the original host families that were promised. Since that time, Randy Miles has caught on with a host family but the other three are still stranded on the bug infested property. The baseball is good in the league, but due to a lack of a phone line (among other things like hot water, food, or a refridgerator) no website has been made yet by San Francisco Seals marketing intern Paul Beck. "I feel like McGyver out here, if you want something done you have to make it out of nothing." There are plenty of good stories that will be shared at a later date, including animals in the kitchen, "abuela", a player on the team known as Fairy Dust, the drug-dealing boy friend, clashing uniforms, McKinley pitching, no meal money and last but not least, the family living in a garbage bag. Stay tuned for details

Neshek Promoted to High A

Pat Neshek recently got a long overdue call-up to the Twins class A affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida. Shaq was glad to get out of Iowa because the beach is a little more exciting than a cornfields...

Phillips and Marks Sign with the Richmond Roosters

Aaron Phillips and Tim Marks recently signed free-agent contracts with the Richmond Roosters of the indedpendent Frontier League. Their season continues until the end of august. Click the link for stats.

End of the Year

The end of another season is here already, even though it seems like we just got back from Australia. Please email me with any updates on summer legaues and I will do my best to keep posting current news....
Now that my career here at Butler is done, I will be looking for a younger player(s) to take over this site for next year. I just wanted to thank all of you (especially Pat Neshek for starting it) for making this site a success. This has been the best four years of my life and it wouldn't have been possible without all of the parents, coaches and most importantly players that make Butler Baseball so special.
I can think of about a million things I will miss about playing baseball at Butler and they include: Monday "Mandatory Shirts Off" batting practice, the X-games, bus rides home playing password and the name game, hanging out in the locker room after practice, getting kicked out of the weight room by Buff Daddy, the Butler World Series, winning the conference tournament, the regionals, playing Chicago State, eating slime sandwiches and a chilled Siera Mist on the way to weekday games, hearing Harding complain about someone switching their pants, coming down to the locker room and seeing Ramon the janitor sleeping, taking showers with the Cramer soap, getting smoked in ping-pong and last but not least, freshman skits.
Best of luck in the future...

PB

Best Senior Day Ever

The nine Butler Bulldog Seniors went out with a big bang on Sunday afternoon as they beat Detroit 24-4. Butler pounded out a season high 28 hits and 15 different bulldogs had hits in the game. Jeff Brown, Tim Marks, Jeff Albert, Paul Beck and Jared Lowe all had 3 hits a piece and Ryan Nance and Rex Eaton drove in 4 runs each. Nance hit his 8th homer of the season and Dale Mueller and Albert also hit big flies. Every Butler senior not only got in the game, but reached base...including pitchers Aaron Phillips and Corey Kugle. Phillips perhaps had the most memorable at bat since the legendary Troy Parton at Cincinnati. Phillips came up to bat with the bases loaded in the 7th and promptly launched a grand slam homer with his first and probably only swing ever in college! This ball was a no doubter, clearing the fence easily in left field. Kugle also turned in a solid at bat but was walked on a full count pitch. Butler will face Wright State at 2:30 in the first round of the Horizon League tournament on Thursday.

Seniors Enjoy Special Graduation

Although the rest of the Butler campus celebrated graduation on Saturday, the members of the Butler baseball team had a special ceremony on Monday afternoon. Aaron Phillips, Jon Freeman, Tim Marks and Jeff Albert received their diplomas in front of a few select friends and colleagues (actually just one nerdy camera man). Guest speaker and lawn artist "James" gave a chilling speech about the importance of getting a good education and wished the group luck in the future (especially if they want to go to space). The diplomas were presented by Wanda and other Aramark all-stars with one last final meal of slime sandwiches and Siera Mist following the ceremony. Rex Eaton could not be in attendance but will be honored at a future TOD concert....

Club Annex Shuts Down

Much to the dismay of the Butler Baseball team, Club Annex closed today for the season. The only club hittin' it 24-7 was shut down due to possible health code violations. Rumor has it that the wall was crumbling becuase Jeff Albert hit too many liners off it. The Rave that was scheduled for the Annex this weekend has been postponed as well. Save your glow sticks for next season when D(J) Freeman starts mixing....
