Former Downers South Nick Burdi star to return to area with USA Baseball team
University of Louisville standout playing with Collegiate National Team, which visits Geneva next week
The end of the College World Series hardly signaled the end of Nick Burdi’s baseball season.
During the spring, Burdi, a sophomore for the University of Louisville baseball team, helped the Cardinals to the Big East Conference regular season title by saving 16 games as a relief pitcher.
Soon after Louisville’s season ended, Burdi joined some of the best players from around the country on USA Baseball’s Collegiate National Team, which tours the country and the world playing college-level competition. Local fans have a chance to get a glimpse of Burdi and his electrifying fastball, which has been clocked at 100 mph, when the CNT visits Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva on Monday and Tuesday.
