2018 Metro Collegiate Champions

Two Metro Collegiate Alumni picked up in the 2019 MLB Player Draft

Metro Collegiate alumni and Missouri State junior Drew Millas was selected in the seventh round of the 2019 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft Tuesday afternoon, as the Oakland Athletics nabbed the Bears' All-American catcher with the 224th overall pick. While with Metro Collegiate, Drew played for Coach Rick Fiala (Bandits)

Another of the Bandits players was also selected in this years' draft, RHP Anthony Green. The 6'4" Green was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals. In 29 innings pitched this season, Anthony struck out 40 batters and only surrendered 3 earned runs for a stellar .093 ERA and 5 win vs. 0 loss record.

Congratulations and Best of Luck to both of these young men.

  

STL Metro League Sponsors August Busch Restoration

Just in time for Opening Day in St. Louis, local Sculptor Don Wiegand has restored the luster to his bronze bust of August A. Busch Jr., known better as Gussie. Wiegand sculpted the former team owner and beer baron more than 30 years ago, but every year on the day before the Home Opener, he and a team of volunteers, plus members of the Busch family, go to Busch Stadium to clean and polish the bust to keep it looking good.

 David Freese stops by the Metro Office...

David Freese, St. Louis Metro Collegiate alumni and current big leaguer with the Pittsburgh Pirates, stopped by the Metro Collegiate office last week.   It’s just wonderful that our Metro Collegiate “family” stays in touch.   David has been a great supporter of our program and recalls many fond memories of his years in the StL Metro program.

 Celebrating a successful round of pool play...

Bandits first baseman, Luke Bakula, entertains the troops.  After listening to his little concert, I remarked, "Looks like somebody was taking piano lessons while the other boys were playing baseball."  Luke took the ribbing with a hearty laugh.
