Ware debuts with Slammers

JOLIET, Ill. — While the Sedgwick Cardinal baseball team was busy making history at the state tournament, one of the team’s most noted alumni — Brylie Ware — made his debut with the Joliet Slammers of the independent, professional Frontier League.

Ware, a graduate of Sedgwick High School and the University of Oklahoma, was drafted in 2019 by the St. Louis Cardinals.

He played a season with the State College Spikes of the short-season Class A New York-Penn League, hitting .197 in 51 games with a home run and 24 RBIs. In 2020, he was called up to the Peoria Chiefs of the Class A Midwest League, but the season was canceled and he was released.

He played last season for the Nerds Herd in the City of Champions Cup, hitting .301 in 22 games, with 12 RBIs.

He was signed by the Slammers for this season. In his debut on Thursday, Ware had two hits in four at-bats.
