Ligonier native Dirk Ormsby to play baseball at Northern Illinois University

January 2, 2013
West Noble High School



Kellogg Community College pitcher Dirk Ormsby, of Ligonier, Ind., has committed to play baseball for Division I school Northern Illinois University during the 2013-14 season.

“Dirk had a huge fall and received many offers,” said KCC’s head baseball coach Eric Laskovy. “I am proud of the commitment Dirk has made in the last year. If he continues to progress, he has the potential to play professionally.”

Ormsby will join former KCC pitching coach Todd Coryell, who is now a pitching coach at NIU. Ormsby is one of five KCC sophomore baseball players who have committed to play for Division I schools during the 2013-14 season, continuing what Laskovy called a strong tradition of moving players along to quality four-year institutions.

“We expect several more Bruins in this sophomore class to follow suit this spring,” he said.

KCC’s baseball team finished the fall semester with success off the field as well as on, with a team-average GPA of 3.26. KCC Athletic Director Tom Shaw said that ranks the Bruins at the top of the field in the National Junior College Athletic Association in terms of academics.

“We have a rare combination of talent on the field and in the classroom,” Shaw said. “It’s off the charts, and it keeps getting better.”
