DU takes home 2nd place trophy at Tulane Baseball Arbitration Competition
From Matthew W. Hofmeister, 3L: “I am pleased to inform you that Scott Neckers and I reached the finals and took second place this weekend in New Orleans. A field of 34 teams was divided into 4 divisions. Scott and I won our division by winning 2 of our 3 preliminary rounds and having the highest score differential. We then successfully represented Jay Bruce of the Cincinnati Reds to reach the championship round, which was held in an auditorium before all the participants and decided by a three-person panel that included counsel for the Pittsburgh Pirates and a head of the players’ union. We represented the Toronto Blue Jays against pitcher Shaun Marcum and lost by a very slim margin. The panel and many others in attendance were highly complimentary of our performance. Scott and recent graduate Thomas Loegering, JD’10, won the tournament last year. 3L Kellan McKeon and 2L Jesse McLain also competed as DU’s second team. They won their first matchup and scored very well overall but were unable to advance after losing to Scott and me in a preliminary round.” Congratulations Matt and Scott!
