A daily look at the Bloomsburg University Athletic teams.

Thursday Ramblings

Written by Bloomsburg Sports Info on 8:23 AM

Here is the Huskies Update for Thursday, April 9th.

Sorry I missed blogging yesterday. I was out of the office in the AM and then up at both baseball and softball in the afternoon. Let me tell you...it was COLD!!! Sitting outside for 5 hours keeping stats at baseball and softball is non-glamorous part of this job. Six layers of clothes, two pairs of socks, a hat and two pairs of gloves and I was still cold.

SOFTBALL

The Huskies swept a pair of games from Mansfield winning 4-0 and 6-2. The Huskies play today at Clarion. The game was moved up a day due to anticipated rain in tomorrow's forecast. BU is now 22-4 on the year and ranked 19th in the country.

BASEBALL

The Huskies split with Mansfield losing 8-4 and winning 9-8 in eight innings. Tony Donofry drove in the winning run of game two and finished with 6 RBI. The Huskies are home tomorrow, weather permitting, at 1 p.m. to face Kutztown.

TENNIS

The BU men and women both won yesterday at Millersvile. The men won 8-1 and the women won 9-0. The Huskies host Kutztown today at 3:30 p.m.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK
This comes from Kiley...a 2001 grad of BU...
"What is the process for nominating someone for the BU Athletic Hall of Fame?"

I get this one a lot Kiley...and thanks for asking. Nominations for the BU Athletic Hall of Fame can be done in a variety of ways. As chair of the committee, I assemble all the names for nomination during the course of the year.

First a person needs to be gone from BU for 10 years before they can be considered. Nominations can be submitted to me. I need name, year of graduation, and the sport or sports he/she played while here. Any other details you might have will help. That can be put into an e-mail or a had copy letter and mailed or now go online to fill out the nomination form we have set up. Anyone can nominate a person, including the person him/herself.

The committee meets in December to decide the nominees for the following year. Names stay in nomination for a period of five years, but can be resubmitted.

The committee looks for honors won...All-American, All-Region, etc. Also, stats, success of team in some cases and in cases where positions have no stats, the importance to the team of this player.

Hope that helps.

Remember if you have a question about BU athletics you would like answered, be sure to drop me a note in e-mail with the question and each Thursday we'll pick a new one to write about.

POLL QUESTION
Our new poll question will be posted later on Thursday. Be sure to check it out.
