What could make this Monday more ridiculous?
How about this: According to the Rockford RiverHawks' Web site, 13-year-old Satchel Daleo has given a verbal commitment to play for the Northern Illinois baseball team. Daleo, an outfielder who plays for the Junior RiverHawks which are based out of Loves Park, would be a part of the 2015 baseball recruiting class.
"Ed saw him play during fall ball last year and then Satchel was invited to participate in a showcase held at NIU, where he performed well," Chris Daleo, Satchel's father, tells the web site. "We are very excited. It is Satchel’s dream to play college baseball. We respect Coach Mathey and his program at NIU and this is very exciting news for our family."
