The Buick City Skyhawks traveled to South Bend Indiana to play in the 2nd annual Harris Park Summer Smash. The Skyhawks overcame some adversity and went to the championship eventually losing to DC Elite. The semi finals game featured one of the greatest endings ever. With 2 outs and the tying run on 3rd base, pitcher Dylan Schmitz induced a ground ball to third. Austyn Sutherby made a terrific play to get to the hard hit grounder down the line. He then slipped in the loose dirt and made a throw across the diamond from the seat of his pants. Getting the out secured the Skyhawks position in the championship game with Dylan Schmitz tossing the complete game 2 hit shut out.

Skyhawks Pitcher Travis Wilson signs with Iowa Wesleyan University
Left handed pitcher and first baseman Travis Wilson chose Iowa Wesleyan University over Rochester College as his destination to play college baseball. Travis said the decision was based on "the ability to pitch right away and possibly be a starter as a Freshman and the opportunity to try out for the vacant first base position as well". Travis will join the Iowa Wesleyan University Tigers as they are in their first year of transitioning from a NAIA school to a NCAA D3 University. He plans to study Sports Management and Business while there. We are very proud of Travis and what he's accomplished.
Skyhawks 2nd Baseman Hernan Solis Jr signs with Marygrove College
Hernan Solis Jr. signed to play college baseball with Marygrove College of Michigan. Hernan had a very successful season as he transitioned from a 3rd baseman to a 2nd baseman where his fast hands better suited him for turning double plays. Hernan was strong at the plate recording 62 plate appearances and only 3 strike outs. That's 1 strike out every 21 at bats. These numbers were what interested Marygrove who were looking for a player who put the ball in play. We're very proud of Hernan and what he has accomplished.
