July 11, 2017… Joe Robbins now a member of the Lincoln Saltdogs had his first hit, a three-RBI triple, against the Cleburne Railroaders on Saturday. 

Robbins kept his hot bat going, tying Tuesday’s contest with a two-run home run, along with his second triple in the last 3 games and now has 4 hits in his last 6 ab’s….

July 15…Joe Robbins hit his 3rd  triple tonight in just his 9th game he started. That now leads the Saltdogs in triples and he ranks 3rd in the American Association in that category. The American Association teams have all played 53 games which makes that feat amazing.

Quote from Joe Robbins(below/left)  ” I was right where you are right now looking for anything to get me back into the game after not being drafted. When I heard about the Indy Pro Showcase.  I knew that if I wanted to play pro ball that this was the way in. As it turned out, the Indy Pro Showcase was the key for me to fulfill my dream . Nick will fight for you if he sees you have talent. He gave me a chance and I am forever grateful. If you want a chance I recommend you get to the Monterey Showcase at the end of the month”…Joe Robbins Lincoln Saltdog and participant Indy Pro Showcase June 27, 2017
