Former U-N-I standout Adam Boeve has signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Boeve was named the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year this past season and was taken by the Pirates in the 12th round of the draft. He will leave the Waterloo Bucks and will report to a mini-camp before being assigned to a Pirates’ Class-A affiliate. Bucks manager Andy Haines says they’re happy to see him go because the league is all about preparing players for the big show. Waterloo closes out a series at home against Madison, tonight. The Bucks have dropped 10 of their last 12 and stand 10-17 on the season. Haines says he still has a lot of confidence in his guys, and points to last year’s success when the team was average in the first half of the season but in the end wound up winning it all.
