Nowicki Wraps Up Third Minor League Season

Joe Nowicki, who played at UWM from 2003-06, recently concluded his third season of minor league baseball in the Baltimore Orioles organization. He spent the 2008 campaign as a member of the Delmarva Shorebirds, the Orioles Class "A" affiliate located in Salisbury, Maryland.

Joe helped lead the team to a 78-61 record, batting .276 in a team-high 130 games. The South Atlantic League All-Star was selected by members of the Delmarva Shorebirds Fan Club as their "Player of the Half" (the season is split in two halves schedule-wise) and topped the club with 74 runs scored, 36 doubles, six triples, 19 home runs, 78 runs batted in, 241 total bases and 492 at bats.
