Hoosier Alumni Aaron Slegers Wins the 2019 Community Service Award for the AAA Durham Bulls of the Tampa Bay Rays organization.
Aaron Slegers pitched for Hoosier Baseball from 2011-2013 and led the Hoosiers to the College World Series in his final season in Bloomington . He went 9-2 with a 2.04 ERA leading the staff that would help shock the college baseball world. In 2018, while with the Twins, he recorded the first Win in MLB for a Hoosier Baseball Alum since Zach McClellan.
Twins win. Aaron Slegers becomes the first Hoosier Baseball pitcher to record a Win at The Bart and in The Majors. I’m sure he won’t be the last. #FromTheBartToTheShow #iubase pic.twitter.com/pIVVCgCKNp

Great to see he’s an Ace on and off the field as many Hoosier Alumni have been. Congrats Aaron.
