Krueger signs with Riverhawks

Eagle fans won't have to travel down under to see former Edgewood College pitcher Matt Krueger this summer. Krueger has signed a contract to play for the Rockford Riverhawks, an independent professional baseball team in the Frontier League.

Krueger played last season with the Perth Heat of the Australian Baseball League and their farm team the Wanneroo Giants of the Western Australia State Baseball League. Krueger helped the Giants to the league title, pitching to victory in the championship series.

The Riverhawks open the season with a three-game series at home against the Traverse City Beach Bums, beginning on Friday night. The Riverhawks play at Road Ranger Stadium in Loves Park, Ill., just 65 miles south of Madison.
