SCOUTING ILLINOIS STATE:

Illinois State is picked to finish fourth in the Missouri Valley Conference Preseason Coaches’ Poll. In 2009, the Redbirds finished with a 25-23 record. Illinois State returns seven position players and all three weekend starters. Last year’s team produced the program’s first winning season and conference tournament berth, since 2001. The Redbirds also welcome 14 newcomers. Illinois State is led by redshirt junior Ryan Court, who hit .323 with a .488 slugging percentage, a team-best 41 RBI. The pitching staff is led by senior Ryan Copeland. He amassed a 3.63 ERA with a 4-5 record in 14 appearances and 12 starts. Copeland tossed 91.2 innings and compiled 69 strikeouts.

BLASER REDSHIRTS:

Redshirt junior, Tyson Blaser, has been MIA in the Hawkeye lineup essentially the past two seasons due to injuries and will start the 2010 campaign healthy after having seasonending surgery on his right thumb last April. Blaser took a medical redshirt.

Probable Pitchers
SATURDAY, 11 AM IA - JARRED HIPPEN (LHP, SO, 6-3, 195) ILL ST- RYAN COPELAND (LHP, SR, 5-11, 185) NOTING: Hippen’s last start as in 2009

was a 5-3 victory over Penn State. He went seven and one-third innings, striking out six and allowing only one earned run.

INFIELD HAS NEW LOOK:

SCOUTING AUSTIN PEAY:

Austin Peay State University’s baseball team was picked to finish eighth of nine teams in the 2010 Ohio Valley Conference’s preseason poll. Austin Peay saw a streak of 10 consecutive OVC Tournament appearances end last season when the team finished 7-12 in league play. The Governors have 23 letterwinners back from last year’s team, including nine positional starters and five starting pitchers. Leading the Austin Peay squad is senior catcher Trey Lucas (.382, 20 doubles, 35 RBI), senior first baseman Matt Kole (.333, 9 home runs, 42 RBI). The Governors are led on the bump by junior Ryne Harper, won four games and had a team-low 4.12 E.R.A. a year ago.

With former starters Kevin Hoef, Justin Toole, TJ Cataldo and Wes Freie out of the picture, the Hawkeyes have a lot of new faces in the infield. The only positive to Iowa’s plague of injuries a year ago, is that every 2010 starter in the infield has game experience. Sophomore Chett Zeise will take over as Iowa’s starting third baseman this spring, and junior transfer, Kurtis Lee, will take over at shortstop. Sophomore Mike McQuillan will continue in the starting second baseman role, while sophomore Sean Flanagan will play at first.

SATURDAY, 3 PM IA - PHIL SCHREIBER (RHP, FR, 6-0, 195) APS - JEREMY DODDS (LHP, SO, 6-2, 185) NOTING: Schreiber started a team-high nine games in 2009, finishing with a 2-2 record and 4.57 ERA.

1. Junior Kurtis Muller enters the 2010 season with a 12-game hitting streak intact. Look for the leadoff hitter to continue it in the season opener. 2. With two southpaw pitchers as probable starters, look for senior Ryan Durant and redshirt junior Tyson Blaser to swing the bat well. Durant hit .340 and Blaser .467 last season against lefties. 3. This is the first time since practice has started that the team gets to play outside.

THINGS TO WATCH THIS WEEK

ROBERSTON TEARS UP NWL:

Senior pitcher Zach Robertson had a tremendous summer in the NWL. The Rochester Honker ace not only won the league championship in a 7-4 triumph over the LaCrosse Loggers but set two league records. Robertson finished the season with a league-best career strikeouts record to 266 following the win. Also, the championship start extended his record-breaking total to 37 starts. He was also an all star selection and received post season all-star honors. The Des Moines native ended the summer season with a 7-3 record and compiled a 2.57 ERA with 95 strikeouts.

RETURNING DEPTH:

MULLER IS BACK:

After a 2009 season of lingering injuries, junior outfielder Kurtis Muller was back to his old self this summer. He received several honors in the Northwoods League (NWL). Muller was named the NWL All-Star Game MVP after going 3-for-5 with a run scored and two stolen bases batting leadoff for the South division in a 4-2 win over the North. Muller finished the summer season named to the post season all-star team. He ranked in the top ten in batting average (.335), on base percentage (.409), stolen bases (19) and runs (40).

LEE TAKES OVER AS CLOSER:

Junior Kevin Lee was recruited for the Hawkeyes as a catcher. But two years and a very successful summer season later—he will be heading to the bump in the ninth for Iowa. In the Prospect League, Lee finished with a league-high 10 saves for the Quincy Gems. He appeared in 29 games and finished with a 1.89 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 38 innings. He earned the save in championship win for the Quincy Gems, winning the Prospect League.

Head Coach Jack Dahm
In six years as Iowa’s head baseball coach, Jack Dahm has established the Hawkeyes as Big Ten contenders and is ready to lead the Iowa baseball program to new heights with his commitment to excellence. Since taking over the Iowa baseball team in July of 2003, Dahm has sparked resurgence in the Hawkeye program, having success Hawkeye fans hadn’t seen in years. In Dahm’s 16 years as a head coach, he has produced 24 first team allconference performers, eight freshmen All-Americans and two All-Americans. In his six years at Iowa, Dahm has coached 24 all-Big Ten selections, including eight first teamers. Iowa had only four first team selections in the previous 14 years before his arrival in Iowa City. Last season, Iowa went 16-35, but was decimated by injuries, which gave several young players opportunities and experience. Three Hawkeyes received all-conference honors. Ryan Durant received first team laurels, while Justin Toole was named third team all-Big Ten for the third consecutive year. Freshman Dallas Burke was named a unanimous choice to the conference’s all-freshman team after seeing significant time on the field. Five Hawkeyes were drafted in 2009, including two incoming recruits. Relievers Steve Turnbull, Kyle Heim and Mike Schurz were all picked up, as well as Matthew Dermody and Dan Sheppard. Additionally, Justin Toole signed a free agent contract with the Cleveland Indians. Thirty-four of Dahm’s players have been selected in the MLB Draft, while four have gone on to play in the major leagues. In 2009, Coach Dahm surpassed Dick Schultz for the third-most victorious coach in Iowa history at Duane Banks Field on March 21st in a 9-4 victory over Western Illinois. Dahm picked up his 400th win as a Division I coach at Northern Iowa on April 23. He also picked up his 124th victory as an Iowa head coach against Ohio State on May 16, which surpassed Scott Broghamer (1998-03) for fourth in Iowa coaching victories. The 42-year old Dahm and his wife, Lynn, have been married for 16 years. The couple has three children - sons Casey and Tyler and daughter Lyndsey. He was born January 19, 1967 in Skokie, Illinois.

THE ASSISTANT COACHES:

DUANE BANKS FIELD:

Every year the UI Athletics Department continues to upgrade Duane Banks Field. This year’s primary addition is 500 new chair back seating behind home plate. For the first time, season tickets are available for purchase. Fans can reserve their own chair backs for the 2010 season by calling the UI Athletic Ticket Office at 1-800-IA-HAWKS. Besides that, in 2009, the Recreation Building underwent a complete makeover. Improvements included: a new locker room, lounge, training room and weight room.

LET THE BLOGGING BEGIN:

Iowa junior Kurtis Muller will be writing a weekly blog for pingbaseball.com this season. Hawkeye fans will be able to link to his weekly blog through hawkeyesports.com. Muller was recognized as a freshman all-American by Ping! in 2008. The native of Sun Prairie, WI, is a three-time Unity Council member and an ISAAC representative.

WHISTLIN’ RAY:

Of all the members of the Hawkeye baseball program, the longest tenured is “Whistlin’” Ray Gilmore, who serves as Iowa’s official scorekeeper. Gilmore started as a batboy in 1978, and has since served as manager, public address announcer and unofficial mascot for Iowa Baseball. Iowa’s record since Gilmore joined the program is 871-818-3 (.516).

Head Coach Jack Dahm is assisted by coach Ryan Brownlee and coach Chris Maliszewski, along with volunteer coach Zach Dillon. Over the past nine seasons, Brownlee has had 21 players he coached or recruited drafted; two more signed free agent contracts. This past summer, Steve Turnbull, Kyle Heim, Mike Schurz and recruits Matt Dermody and Dan Sheppard were drafted by major league teams. In six years of coaching summer collegiate leagues, he has seen 33 of his players sign pro contracts, including Khalil Green of the Padres and Kevin Cash of the Yankees, Joe Thatcher of the Padres, Dan Meyer of the Marlins and Luke Scott of the Astros. In 2008, Brownlee’s expertise on stealing bases and knowledge of hitting were essential in establishing team and individual records. Iowa stole 138 bases, which are the most in a single-season by a Hawkeye team; the previous record of 127 was set by the 1981 team. The team total ranked third in the nation. On top of that, Iowa knocked out 436 singles for a new single-season record and wore 86 pitches to set a single-season team record in hit-by-pitches. Maliszewski is in his second season as the Hawkeyes’ pitching coach. In addition to his role as pitching coach, Maliszewski is also responsible for the team’s travel arrangements and assists in the youth summer camps. In his first season, the team’s ERA in Big Ten play improved 1.45 points from 2008 to 2009. On top of that, Hawkeye pitchers recorded nearly 20 less walks then the season before and over 30 strikeouts more than in 2008. Over the summer, Maliszewski had three Hawkeye relievers get drafted; Steve Turnbull, Kyle Heim and Mike Schurz, all of whom signed professional contracts.
