The Scouting Report
In their first season as part of the Midwest Collegiate Baseball League, the DuPage County Hounds made an impressive debut in the 2012 playoffs. This year, the team’s continued its early success, winning such thrilling games as a 13-inning victory at home over the Rockford Foresters on June 7. Amid the Hounds’ roster of local talent, Brett Maus from Tinley Park has emerged as one of the league’s leaders in strikeouts. Throughout the season’s remaining games—including a showdown with the U.S. Military All-Stars on July 8—Maus and the pitching staff hope to keep eliminating batters by triggering the trap door below home plate.
DuPage County Hounds
On June 1, 2012, the DuPage County Hounds debuted as part of the Midwest Collegiate Baseball League with a 7-4 victory over the Northwest Indiana Oilmen. Since then, summer evenings in Lisle have echoed with the cracks of wooden bats and cheers for baseball’s up-and-coming players. Rather than trying to grow players by re-planting chewed up sunflower seeds, the team fills its roster with local talent home from college for the season; in fact, many of the players hail from local towns such as Joliet, Naperville, and Downers Grove. While the Hounds’ pitchers and sluggers sharpen their skills on the field, off the field, fans enjoy a festive atmosphere in the 1,100-seat stadium replete with concession stands and a kids’ zone stocked with bounce houses.
