FAU baseball players nab awards; Flutie loses a stick
Florida Atlantic's baseball season has been over for a while, but a couple of Owls - one current and one soon-to-be - earned awards in the past couple days.Several media outlets
are reporting that catcher Mike Albaladejo garnered Sun Belt Conference All-Freshman honors. After a slow start to the season, Albaladejo ended the year hitting .373. Perhaps more importantly, the Owls posted a 13-7 record in games he started behind the plate. Here is the story
we wrote about him prior to the start of the Sun Belt tournament.
Incoming signee Andy Mee earned National Junior College Atheletic Association second team All American honors.
As an outfielder Mee hit .425 for Sante Fe and broke the school record for hits with 96. Mee also pitched, recording nine saves and stricking out 53 batters in 36 1/3 innings. FAU is expected to use him in both positions next season.FAUOwlAccess.com
offers our congratulations to Albaladejo and Mee.The Flutie file:
OK, so this doesn't have much to do with FAU, but thought some might enjoy it. As mentioned in yesterday's blog, Doug Flutie's band band played at Boston's last night. I took the top photo using Winker's camera. Winker took the bottom four photos, which I think are pretty funny.photos by Winker
Flutie was going for a big drum crash but he lifted his hands too high and got his stick stuck in the Boston's sign. The series of photos starts with him lifting his hands and conclude with him figuring out where the drum stick went.
We talked with the guys after the show and they loved the pics. The guitarist said he was waiting for Flutie's drum crash to lead into his next chord, but wondered why it never came. Flutie requested copies of the photos to post on his band's Web site
Nice going Winker. Thanks to you and all the Marks at Boston's for a fun night. The band said they would be coming back to Boston's soon. It's worth going to see.
