He was also named the top player in both the NJCAA Region and Northern District for the second consecutive year. Letz was additionally selected by Marucci as the top hitter in the Midwest.

Ruzich added, “Stephen deserves every award he received this year and his numbers speak for themselves. He will continue his career at Northern Illinois University where has accepted a baseball scholarship beginning the fall of 2014.”

Ruzich was also recently inducted into the NJCAA Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame. He has now coached 15 All-Americans and his program boasts an 80% graduation rate, including 253 players that have continued on to four-year institutions. Twenty-two of his players have been drafted by Major League Baseball teams, five of whom have reached the big leagues.
