The Scouting Report
As the 2014 season barrels into the dog days of summer, the Kane County Cougars look to keep their cleats on the accelerator. The club’s 31–16 record places them atop the entire Midwest League, and they have already built a 3.5-game cushion in the Western division standings. The Cougars have found success in part due to their ability to flummox opposing hitters, who’re forced to sharpen their minds by scrawling Sudoku puzzles in the on-deck circle. So far, the Kane County pitchers have posted a collected 3.20 ERA—second-best in the league. On June 6 and 7, they’ll hurl the stinky cheddar at two division rivals, including the division’s current third-place LumberKings.
Kane County Cougars
Stationed just 30 miles—a mere 1,760 base runs—from the Windy City, the Kane County Cougars protect the future of baseball on the Northside as a Class A minor-league affiliate of the Cubs. The club continues to deliver big-league talent more reliably than a fungo bat hits pop-flies, with more than 100 alumni who have gone on to careers in the big show. Along with its role as a developer of burgeoning talent, the Cougars have had competitive success at their own level, seizing a Midwest League title in 2001. For their exploits, they’ve earned the allegiance of mascot Ozzie T. Cougar, who leads cheers from the stands when not distracted by a bird or someone shaking a keychain.
