Academy Barons-Final Home Game of Season
The Academy Barons entered their final home game of the season on Wednesday night when they faced off against the Los Angeles Thrashers. The Academy Barons’ Braulio Archer sang the National Anthem on Fan Appreciation Night.
It was the second game of a two-game series against the Thrashers. The Barons defeated the Thrashers on Tuesday night as their record moved to 9-20.
The Barons completed their second year in the California Collegiate League. The season was successful and a learning experience for many of the players. The season also saw four Academy Barons get drafted in the 2009 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
Most of the current Barons players will continue playing baseball at their college in hopes of being drafted in next year’s MLB draft, while some may return to the Barons next summer.
