College baseball talent playing in Rushville

With the completion of the NCAA College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, baseball fans may be in search of a place to watch collegiate baseball.

Rushville and the Indiana Bandits have just that opportunity.

The Indiana Bandits have a pair of college teams (East and West) that compete in the Midwest Prospect Baseball League. The league and teams are designed for players to hone their skills and still work during the week. The games are doubleheaders on Saturday or Sunday and then a possible game through the week.

Rushville’s Bruce Fenimore, who has been associated with the Bandits for 14 years, coaches the East college team for the Bandits. The East team is playing home games at the Council of Clubs Diamond in Rushville.

Upcoming home games for the East squad include 11 a.m. doubleheader July 5, 1 p.m. doubleheader July 13, 7 p.m. game July 15 and 7 p.m. game July 17.

Players from Anderson University, DePauw University, Wabash College, Spring Hill College (Alabama), IPFW, Tiffin, Hanover College, Marian University, Otterbein University, University of St. Francis, Vincennes University and Kaskaskia Community College play for the Bandits.

Local players of interest include Caleb Fenimore, James Brashaber and Austin Niehoff of RCHS; Austin Westerfeld of Batesville; Zak Kellogg and Cory Isenberger of New Castle; Justin Kirkpatrick of Pendleton Heights; and Cameron Gruell, Hayden Kissee and Brendon Neal of Greenfield Central.

Admission is free at the Council of Clubs Diamond, so head out and enjoy some great baseball by these college “boys of summer.”
