Matt Blaney and Joey Kendrick’s baseball careers have veered in different directions, but both are playing for the Frankfort Eagles this summer for the same reason: love of the game.

Blaney, a Lincoln-Way East graduate, is preparing for his junior season at Illinois Wesleyan.

Kendrick, a Frankfort native who attended Illinois Lutheran High School in Crete, is not playing college baseball as he attends Grand Valley State in Michigan.

Still, he’s spending his summer the same way he has almost his entire life: on the diamond.
