MLB Debuts

Two stories about two Hoos who made their MLB debuts this season. First up, pitcher Brandon Waddell who made his debut Aug. 14 with the Pirates. And a story about Pavin Smith, the former first-round draft pick who made his debut for the Diamondbacks on Sept. 12.



It was a busy weekend for Hoos in professional soccer. Becky Sauerbrunn made her home debut for the Portland Thorns on Sunday after being traded by the Utah Royals in the off-season. Rookie Courtney Petersen – who was a first-round pick by Orlando – made her debut for the Pride on Saturday. A trio of Hoos (Danielle Colaprico, Morgan Gautrat and Zoe Morse) got the start for Chicago on Sunday, while Brittany Ratcliffe made the start for Utah against Sauerbrunn’s Thorns. Meg McCool was also in action, helping the Washington Spirit.
