Former Lion Great Visits Zephyr Field This Weekend

Wade Miley
Former Lion great and Loranger native Wade Miley is scheduled to pitch Saturday against the New Orleans Zephyrs at Zephyr Field in Metairie, LA.  First pitch is scheduled for 6pm.  Miley, playing for the Reno Aces (AAA affiliate for the Arizona Diamondbacks), enters the contest with 3-1 record to go along with a 4.17 ERA.  In 45.1 innings pitched, the Lions all-time strikeout leader (259) has recorded 47 strikeouts. 

Miley, who was drafted by the Diamondbacks in the supplemental first round of the 2008 MLB draft (43rd overall pick), is the highest drafted athlete in SLU school history.

Lion Nation head on out to Zephyr Field and show Wade some love by wearing your green and gold Lion gear.
