Former Lewis University baseball outfielder Mike Bolling of Chicago has signed a contract with the Schaumburg Boomers of the Frontier League for the upcoming 2013 season.

Bolling becomes the Flyers' 70th professional signee in program history.

"He will be a great fit for the Boomers," Lewis head baseball coach Tim McDonough said. "Mike has a unique set of skills, and his speed will play well at any level."

During his two seasons at Lewis, Bolling was a two-time National College Baseball Writers Association All-Midwest Region Second Team selection, as well as an American Baseball Coaches Association and Daktronics All-Midwest Region Team honoree in 2012.

Bolling also garnered All-Great Lakes Valley Conference honors both seasons after leading the league in stolen bases two years in a row with 34 in 2012 and 31 in 2011. In his 94 career starts in the outfield, he tallied 79 hits including 15 doubles, 4 triples and 4 home runs for a .431 batting average and a .433 slugging percentage.
