Copeland Pitches His Way to Top of Appalachian League Stats
Ryan Copeland's dream of playing professional baseball became reality June 9, when the former Illinois State pitcher was selected in the 32nd round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft by the St. Louis Cardinals. He was assigned to the Cardinals' rookie-advanced league affiliate, the Johnson City, Tenn., Cardinals. As of Monday, August 2, Copeland's record is 5-0. He has the lowest ERA in the Appalachian League at 1.49 and the third-lowest ERA among all rookie leaguers. The Des Plaines, Ill., native is tied for the most wins in the Appalachian League, and he has allowed the fewest hits (23), runs (7) and earned runs (6).
Incoming Freshmen Turn Down Major League Baseball Offers
All three incoming Illinois State freshmen selected in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft have turned down their professional offers to instead play for the Redbirds. Catcher Mike Hollenbeck, pitcher Johnny Lieske and infielder Brock Stewart allowed Monday's 11:00 p.m. CT MLB Draft deadline to pass without signing professional contracts. They will begin classes at ISU next week.
Illinois State University Camps Frequently Asked Questions:
What if I have to cancel?
We do not offer refunds on cancelled campers, just a future camp credit if you decide to cancel, but we do have what is called "Cancellation Protection".
We offer basic Cancellation Protection to allow participants some peace of mind in case plans change. This allows us to keep our prices low and provide the best service possible. Due at the time of registration, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of camp fees should you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of an overnight camp, and 7 days prior to the start of a day camp. If you cancel within 14 or 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid.
The credit is valid for three years from camp date at any of our national locations. Credit with insurance is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp.
How do I know that you have received my registration?
You will receive a confirmation e-mail upon registration completion indicating the camp(s) that you registered for.
When is the registration deadline?
We prefer to receive registrations seven days prior to the start of each camp. Walk-up registrations will be allowed in some cases; however, we highly recommend sending your registration in through the mail as early as possible in order to guarantee your spot. Also, please understand that we reserve the right to close camp at any time due to enrollment size.
Are parents allowed to watch camp?
Parents are free to watch camp at any time; however, we ask that parents stay out of the way and leave the instruction to the coaches on staff.
Will my son receive an evaluation at the conclusion of camp?
It depends upon the camp. Participants will always receive feedback during camps, but will only receive a written evaluation form following our High School Advanced Skills Camp and our Winter Pitching Clinic.
