NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The 2011 professional baseball season is just over two months old. Below is a recap of what former Notre Dame players playing in the professional ranks have done to this point of the season.

Notre Dame currently has five players, Craig Counsell (1989-92), Milwaukee Brewers; John Axford (2002-03), Milwaukee Brewers; Aaron Heilman (1998-01), Arizona Diamondbacks; Brad Lidge (1997-98), Philadelphia Phillies; and Jeff Samardzija (2004-06), Chicago Cubs; playing in Major League Baseball.

Notre Dame has another four players, Matt Macri (2002-04), Colorado Springs Sky Sox; Jeff Manship (2005-06), Rochester Red Wings; David Phelps (2006-08), Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees; and Kyle Weiland (2006-08), Pawtucket Red Sox; on the brink of the big leagues in Triple-A.

Including Manship, six former Irish players have seen action in an MLB game in 2011. The other 11 members of the BIG EAST Conference combined can only claim a total of seven such players.

The most recent crop of Irish players to join the professional ranks include Brian Dupra (2008-11, 7th round pick of Washington Nationals), Cole Johnson (2008-11, 44th round pick of Minnesota Twins) and Matt Scioscia (2008-11, 45th round pick of Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim). All three have signed and reported to camp.
