SEATTLE - University of Washington baseball players will take their games around the country this summer, playing in a number of difference collegiate summer leagues.
Following is a list of where each returning Husky baseballer will play this summer. Many of these teams and leagues have fairly informative web sites. The New England Collegiate Baseball League, for instance, has radio broadcasts of all of its games on the internet. See the links to the league sites (which, in turn, generally contain links to team sites) listed below the list of players.
Additionally, freshman Brent Lillibridge will attend the USA Baseball National Team trials later this month in Tucson. In the meantime, he'll compete for the Seattle Studs and would also play for the Studs should he not make the U.S. team.
The following list does not include players that have already signed professional contracts, nor does it list graduated seniors or those who are not playing summer ball this year. The year listed indicates year of eligibility for the 2004 season.
