Confirmed reports! Tim Dorn is leaving us!

Tim Dorn was signed Sunday by the St. Louis Cardinals Miner League team. They gave Dorn a Cardinals hat in the 8th Innings of Sundays game to announce his leaving. I just want to say good Luck to you Tim and I wish you the best. Southern IL will miss you. This is exactly what this league is for, a chance to go to the bigs.
Dorn, who leaves the Frontier League and the Miners tops in home runs with 12, heads to the Cardinals Midwest League affiliate, the Swing of the Quad Cities, with a five game hit streak, a batting average of .349 and 35 RBI.
The Miners first baseman is relishing his opportunity with the Cardinals. "I appreciate another opportunity to get a chance with a Major League team. This has been something I have worked for and would like to thank those who have helped me take this step."
Southern Illinois manager Mike Pinto called the opportunity a happy day for all involved saying, "I as a manager and we as an organization couldn't be more thrilled for Tim."
The Miners will host the Evansville Otters Tuesday night at Rent One Park. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM
