Salina Shock Ready for Second Year

Pat StrathmanJune 5, 2018

With the temperatures heating up, so is the baseball.

The Salina Shock are ready for their second season in the Sunflower Collegiate League. The summer college baseball squad consists of 10 Kansas natives to go with players from five other states.

Two Salina products highlight this year’s bunch. Southeast of Saline product Bryce Banks and Salina Central Mustang Gleason Williams come back to town for the 30-game season. Banks is currently at Bethany College while Williams is transferring from Emporia State University to Kansas Wesleyan University.

The league features seven teams, all from the Sunflower State. Coach Michael Billinger believes the first year was successful with much more growth expected for the second season.

Salina opens the 2018 campaign Wednesday at Cheney. The Shock have their first home game at Dean Evans Stadium on Saturday, hosting Mulvane.
