Local Ballplayer Selected to NWL Showcase

Byron native Ryan Thompson, pitching for the Rochester Honkers this season, has been selected to the Major League Dream Showcase to take place on Tuesday. Thompson, a student-athlete at Illinois these days, Thompson has struck out 38 batters over 39.1 inning pitched for Rochester this year.

Ryan will be participating in Game One of the doubleheader Tuesday night, along with the other Honkers selections. Each player was selected by a panel of scouts, so it is a high honor. Game One that they will be playing in will be at 4:05 at Warner Park in Madison, Wisconsin. I have been unable to see Ryan pitch this season, but if you are in the Madison area today, go see him and cheer him on!

Other selections from the Rochester Honkers include pitcher Kenyon Yovan, catcher David Noworyta, and slugging first baseman Zach Zubia (21 homers on the season).
