The Boomers acquired LHP Andy Weeks on February 10, 2012 in a trade that sent INF Tyler Boling to the Lake Erie Crushers.
Weeks, 25, broke into the professional ranks with Boomers owners Pat and Lindy Salvi’s other minor league team, the Gary SouthShore RailCats of the American Association, after attending the club’s Open Tryout in 2010. Weeks threw 46.1 innings for the RailCats in 2010 and earned a 1-2 record with a 5.83 ERA before being dealt to the Lake Erie in the offseason. With the Crushers, Weeks posted a 5.26 ERA in 63.1 innings and a 3-3 record.
Weeks was an All-North Coast Athletic Conference pick as a senior for Wabash College. Weeks won 10 times for the Little Giants in his four-year career and ranks fourth in school history with 166 career strikeouts. An All-State pitcher at LaPorte High School in Indiana, Weeks won 15 times as a senior in 2005 and played in the RailCats annual High School Challenge for the Slicers.
