2011 Season Preview The Lewis University baseball team has improved each season of head coach Tim McDonough’s first three years at Lewis. Last season the Flyers qualified for the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament for the first time since 2002. However for Lewis to continue an upward trajectory the 2011 Flyers will need to do more than make the tournament. “I was pleased last year to reach the conference tournament however I think being there only one day left a sour taste,” McDonough said. “It was a step in the right direction but this year we need to be playing our best ball at the end of the year.” The Flyers are fortunate to return seven starters from last year’s squad; however the Flyers do have holes to fill at key positions. Daktronics All-Region First Team pitcher Joe Scumaci has graduated. Lewis is also now without closer Ted Bartnik due to graduation. “We don’t have anyone who will replace Joe’s numbers but I believe we are far stronger top to bottom on our pitching staff than we have ever been,” McDonough said. “The challenge is seeing how the starting spots will shake out.” McDonough believes his four-man weekend rotation will be made up of a combination of junior Pat Lahey, senior Tyler Newsome, senior Joey Gradney, sophomore Matt Frahm, senior Matt Zicher, freshman Tom Helwich and junior Jim Glasgow. The two with the most experience are Newsome and Lahey. Newsome was an All-GLVC Third Team selection last year as a utility player. He hit .314 last year with 30 RBI and will be in the lineup when not pitching. On the mound last year he finished with a 2-2 mark and 4.50 ERA, however he gave up just three earned runs over his final 20 innings. Lahey had a 4.08 ERA last season. He was named the GLVC Pitcher of the Week after allowing no earned runs and just four hits in a complete game victory over Findlay in February. Whoever doesn’t earn a spot will come out of the bullpen. Redshirt sophomore Don Cizek and junior Drew Hicks look to hold down the pen after suffering season ending injuries last year. Hicks made 13 appearances with a 1.06 ERA over 17 innings last year before having his season cut short due to injury. Lewis will also look to freshman Tom Durkin in the pen. Lewis’ best power hitter and All-GLVC Second Team selection Scott Householder has also graduated. However much like the pitching staff McDonough feels the team’s depth and experience will make up for Householder’s .351 batting average and .975 OPS. “Something that sticks out to me is when you look around the field we’re going to have some position battles and some platooning however we have a potential starting lineup with over 30 years of college experience,” McDonough said. “That is something we haven’t had before.” Lewis will have a pair of seniors on the left side of the infield with Miguel Amesquita at third base and Richard Forkin at shortstop. Amesquita’s five home runs and 29 RBI last year showed his power potential. He also displayed an ability to make sensational defensive plays. Last year Forkin hit .382 with 24 multi-hit games. Forkin spent much of the season hitting above .400. He was named the GLVC Player of the Week after helping Lewis take 3-of-4 from Northern Kentucky. Sophomore Ian O’Connor and freshman Drew Buddle will provide depth and versatility to the infield. “We’re going to look to Miguel to bring it every day defensively,” McDonough said. “Richie is the prototypical two-hole hitter and I’m excited about the speed we have to put in front of him.” The speed McDonough refers to comes from junior transfer Mike Bolling. The Guerin Prep graduate and Triton

college transfer looks to be the favorite to start in center field and lead off for the Flyers. “Mike is a free spirit who has a lot of fun playing the game,” McDonough quote “He’s a left handed hitter who can run and bunt.” Another transfer, junior Andrew Brauer from Bolingbrook, Ill. and the College of DuPage, looks to be the favorite to start in left field. “Andrew brings a lot of power and is always playing at 100 percent,” McDonough said. “With him and Bolling in the outfield we are going to get to balls this year that we didn’t before.” Ryan Koerner will get time right field once again this year however Newsome, Vinnie Campagna and others might see some time in right depending on matchups and who is designated hitting. “Ryan came in as a walk-on and works as hard as anyone on the team,” McDonough said. “He is always in control emotionally and is great to have on the team.” The right side of the field is where you will see Lewis’ depth come into play. “We’re going to have good players who aren’t playing this year,” McDonough said. “It’s a good situation to be in and will help late in games.” Look for junior Mike Wido and senior Mike Vucsko share time at second base. “Both guys have had a great fall and know there is competition at the spot,” McDonough said. “Both will play early and if one guy is out playing the other that’s the way we will go however I think it is important to have both of them fresh and in the mix.” McDonough has options at the first base and designated hitter spots. Newsome will see time at first but so will others. Redshirt freshman Kyle Thomas and redshirt sophomore Stephen Kaffel look to be favorites at designated hitter “Thomas and Kaffel are left handed power guys who have swung the bat extremely well in fall and winter,” McDonough added. Brian Norwood will get the majority of time behind the plate. The Medinah, Ill. native batted .305 last year as Lewis’ starting catcher. Kyle Thomas will also see time and so will freshman Kyle Kapka who according to McDonough as surpassed expectations so far. “Norwood is a tough kid who has believed he belongs at this level from day one,” McDonough said. “His number one job is to manage the game from the pitcher’s mound to the catcher’s box but I think this year offensively we might see a bit more power from him.” Norwood and the rest of the Flyers will need to manage a tough conference slate which now features defending national champion Southern Indiana in their division. To earn a spot in the 2011 GLVC Tournament Lewis will need to be one of the top three teams in their east division or one of three wild cards. The west division’s top two teams will also earn automatic berths. “You can look at the competition) as a negative but I told the guys that if we can get through conference play we will be ready for everybody in the country,” McDonough said. “It’s an opportunity and a challenge we need to be up for.” McDonough believes his team’s mentality through the conference schedule will be crucial to determining how they end up finishing. “We can’t be content when we win the first two on a Saturday,” McDonough said. “Twice last year (against Quincy and Indianapolis) we won the first two and lost both on Sunday. We can’t have that happen.” Consistently taking 3-of-4 each weekend would certainly help continue the Flyers’ trend of improving each year.


Head Coach Tim McDonough Tim McDonough is in his fourth season as head baseball coach and is the fourth head coach in the 56-year history of the Lewis baseball program. In 2010 the Flyers qualified for the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament, Lewis’ first visit since 2002. Additionally Lewis’ 15 GLVC wins marked the most since 1997. Individually, no Flyer had a better 2010 than pitcher Joe Scumaci. The right hander gathered Daktronics All-Region First Team and ABCA All-Region Second Team honors. He was also Lewis’ first All-GLVC First Team selection since 2004, and first Lewis pitcher to receive the honor since 2000. He led the GLVC in strikeouts with 94 and ranked North central, 1995 13th in the nation in strikeouts per nine innings (11.33). Twice in 2010 he fanned 13 batters in a game. Scumaci wasn’t the only Flyer to earn accolades in 2010. Tyler Newsome took home third team honors as a utility player. Outfielder Scott Householder was named to the second team. Additionally Scumaci and Pat Lahey captured GLVC Pitcher of the Week accolades while shortstop Richard Forkin garnered a GLVC Player of the Week award. McDonough guided Lewis to their first 20-win season in seven years in 2009. Three players, all McDonough recruits, were named all-conference. Scumaci was named to the All-GLVC Second Team thanks to a 2.42 earned run average, the best by a Lewis starter in nearly a decade. Chris McCall became Lewis’ first all-conference catcher in five years when he was named to the third team. Householder rounded out Lewis’ all-conference selection by earning third team honors as an outfielder. In the classroom, Ryan Koerner took home CoSIDA Academic All-District Second Team honors. In McDonough’s first season, the Flyers finished with their most conference victories since 2002. The 2008 season also saw Lewis’ first All-GLVC pitcher (Jon Guzzo) since 2000. Offensively, the Flyers’ team batting average was its highest since 2002 and improved by .66 from the previous season. Prior to arriving at Lewis, McDonough spent five seasons as the top assistant at Northern Illinois University, where he served as the program’s recruiting coordinator and hitting instructor. He also was an assistant at Kishwaukee Community College and North Central College. McDonough made an immediate impact on the Huskie hitters during his first season at NIU. The 2003 squad set numerous season batting records, including hits (625), home runs (70) and runs scored (408). As a team, NIU hit .315, with seven players hitting better than .300. In year two under McDonough, the Huskies tied a school record with 21 triples and posted the second-highest marks in school annals in many offensive categories. In 2005, Jeremy Busch became the first Huskie position player in 25 seasons to earn first-team All-MAC honors after hitting .340. In 2006, McDonough helped outfielder Brian Toner improve his batting average over 130 points from the previous season on his way to a first-team All-MAC selection, and first baseman Scott Simon became the NIU career hit leader. The duo of Simon and Toner hit .383 and .382, respectively, in the MAC. During his time at Kishwaukee, the 2002 team posted a 41-16 record and had six players selected in the 2002 MLB Amateur Draft, half of whom were infielders coached by McDonough. McDonough began his coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater, North Central College (Naperville, Ill.). A nationally-ranked NCAA Division III baseball program, North Central won two College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) titles and earned two regional berths (1996 and 1998) during McDonough’s four years on staff, culminating with a final national ranking of No. 15 following the 1998 season. During his time as an assistant at NCC, McDonough also served as head coach for the Prairie Gravel Baseball Club of the Metro Collegiate Summer Baseball League. His squad won three-consecutive Metro College Summer Baseball League championships while sending 20 players to the professional baseball draft. A standout infielder during his collegiate playing career, McDonough earned first-team All-CCIW honors in 1994 and helped the Cardinals capture a conference crown. In 1995, McDonough garnered a firstteam nod while being named CCIW Player of the Year and winning the league’s Triple Crown. His successful season was capped with recognition as a Division III All-American by the American Baseball Coaches Association. McDonough graduated from NCC with a bachelor’s degree in speech/ broadcast communications in 1995. A 1991 graduate of Burbank’s St. Laurence High School, McDonough is originally from Bridgeview, Ill. McDonough and his wife Amy have seven children: Anthony (13), Jacob (12), Samantha (11), Christopher (10), Teagan (3), Finnegan (1) and Aili (infant).

HISTORY

Founded in 1932 under the direction of the Chicago Archdiocese and Bishop Bernard J. Sheil, Lewis began as the Holy Name Technical School, a school for boys and was established on 170 acres of farmland donated by Michael and Frances Fitzpatrick of Lockport. Aviation technology became the special emphasis of instruction and the origin of today’s highly regarded Department of Aviation and Transportation Studies. During World War II, hundreds of Navy flight instructors were trained at Lewis. In 1952, the school

was renamed the Lewis College of Science and Technology and granted its first baccalaureate degrees. In 1960, the De La Salle Christian Brothers - members of a 328-year-old religious order devoted exclusively to teaching and named after Saint John Baptist de La Salle, their founder and Patron Saint of Educators – assumed direction of the institution. Today, with growing enrollment, outstanding programs, experienced faculty and motivated students, Lewis University is recognized as one of the finest, mid-sized, comprehensive Catholic universities in the country.

LEWIS UNIVERSITY ATHLETICS DIRECTOR DAN SCHUMACHER When Dan Schumacher was hired as Lewis University’s Director of Athletics in June of 2006, the Chicago native knew the heights that the Flyers Athletics program could reach as a department. With great vision comes great expectations, and Schumacher and the Flyers have most certainly delivered. Since his arrival, Lewis has won five regular-season Great Lakes Valley Conference championships and nine GLVC Tournament championships, while making appearances in 12 NCAA Tournaments, including the men’s soccer team’s run to the ‘Final Four’ in 2009. While the Flyers have made improvements on the field, the fields have also been improved during Schumacher’s tenure, as there has been over $500,000 worth of facility upgrades on the Romeoville campus. Schumacher helped speed up the facility upgrade timeline by forming the Varsity Club, an organized,

non-profit fundraising arm of the Lewis University Athletic Department that supports small-scale capital improvements. Neil Carey Arena, home of both basketball and volleyball teams, has seen the most upgrades as it now features a new floor, scoreboards, a video board, island baskets and retractable bleachers which has increased the seating to over 1,000. Both the men’s and women’s swimming teams have directly benefitted from Schumacher’s efforts, as the Lewis Swimming Pool now has a state-of-the-art scoring system which has allowed the program to increase its home schedule. The locker rooms in Neil Carey Arena have been remodeled and are now equipped with flat screen televisions. Lewis now has the ability to video stream all of their home basketball games and volleyball matches from the Arena on www.LewisFlyers.com. Schumacher has also helped make the John F. Kennedy Sports Center become more ‘Flyer Friendly’, as the hallways proudly display Lewis Athletics Artwork and each office has furniture that has the Lewis Flyers Athletics logo emblazoned on it. The Athletic Training room has been remodeled and now holds custom tables, cabinets, flooring and an ice machine. Outside the JFK Sports Center, the Lewis softball team now has new dugouts, a new press box and a custom windscreen for the outfield fence, while the outfield fence of Brennan Field, home of the Flyer baseball team, now has a custom windscreen as well. On the docket for both fields are brand new Daktronics scoreboards, which are slated to be finished by the 2011 season. What Schumacher is most proud of, however, is the performance of his student-athletes in the classroom. In the past three years, the graduation rate for Lewis student-athletes has risen from 60% to as high as 86%, while the Flyers’ Academic Success Rate (ASR) has peaked at a remarkable 98%, Schumacher has brought along seven new head

coaches, including women’s volleyball coach Lorelee Smith and men’s basketball coach Scott Trost. Smith has won two Great Lakes Valley Conference regular season championships, along with two GLVC Tournament championships while losing just 17 matches in three seasons. In his second season as the head coach, Trost led the Flyers to 20 wins for just the 14th time in school history, as well as an appearance in the GLVC Tournament finals and a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004. A 1986 Carl Sandburg High School graduate, Schumacher was responsible for the financial administration of Winona State athletics. Among his duties were marketing and promotions, development, external relations, corporate relations, facilities oversight, budgeting and NCAA compliance. Schumacher was the primary catalyst of a two-year campaign that generated $3 million, through private donations and newly developed athletics department revenue channels, for major improvements to Winona State’s soccer, football, baseball, softball and basketball facilities. He also spearheaded a project that transformed a $42,000 annual corporate sponsorship program into an annual corporate/external relations program that generates $500,000 in scholarships for Winona State athletics and the WSU Foundation. Schumacher spent seven years with Conseco Finance Corporation prior to joining the Winona State staff, serving as Senior Credit Manager from 1995-98 and as Vice President from 1998-2002. He was a Branch Manager for TCF Bank and Mortgage Corporation in Minneapolis from 1990-95. Schumacher earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations (business administration minor) in 1989 and a master’s degree in educational/school administration in 2005, both at Winona State. As a member of the WSU football team, he garnered All-America honors and served two seasons as a team captain. Schumacher and wife Kristin are the parents of daughter Kasey (15) and sons Jack (12) and Declan (8).
