NebraskaAnother former Husker Baseball player has been called up the Major Leagues.  Kearney native, Drew Anderson was called up by the Milwaukee Brewers after hitting .333 with one home run and nine RBIs in 16 games at Nashville. He spent most of the season in Class AA Huntsville, where he hit .289 with six homers, 43 RBIs and 18 stolen bases in 108 games.

Anderson was drafted in the 24th round in 2003 after playing three seasons at NU. Anderson had not played above the Class A level before this year.

Congrats Drew!

The wait is finally over for former Husker pitcher Joba Chamberlain.  After being drafted in the supplemental portion of the first round (selections 31 through 44), it took quite a while for Joba and the Yankees to agree to a contract.

The contract calls for a 1.1 million signing bonus.  Joba will be able to help out his family a ton with that signing bonus.  I don’t like the Yankees myself, but will be rooting for Joba for sure!  Congrats Joba, Husker Nation is proud of you!

Shane KomineRemember that flame throwing Hawaiian pitcher the Huskers had 5 years ago?  Well that man was Shane Komine who recently just got the call that he will be pitching Sunday for the Oakland A’s against the Toronto BlueJays and Roy Halladay. 

This will be Komine’s first ever game at the Major League level, he has spent the last 4.5 years in the minors battling arm troubles.  Now he is passed the arm troubles and pitching great.  NebSports.Com would like to wish Shane good luck as he makes his M.L.B. debut on Sunday!

Alex Gordon Futures GameIncase all you Nebraska Fans haven’t been keeping up with Alex Gordon, he played in the 2006 Futures All Star Game in Pittsburgh yesterday. 

Alex and Royal teammate Billy Butler slugged their way past the World team as the USA team won 8-5.  Gordon drove in two runs with a single and long double to left-center field.  Butler was named MVP after belting a two-run homer to center field.

Expect Alex Gordon to be promoted to Triple A Omaha within the next month or so and possibly be a September callup for the big league Kansas City Royals.

Keep up the hard work Alex!  Husker fans are proud of you!
