Iron River, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Iron River, Wis. native and former Northwestern standout Donnie Hissa will play this summer in the Northwoods League with the Lakeshore Chinooks, a team that is managed by UW-Superior's Eddy Morgan.

Hissa, who just completed his junior season with the Division I University of Notre Dame, will be competing in his first Northwoods League season.

The 6-foot-7 right-handed pitcher made 24 appearances for the Irish in the 2013 season, amassing a record of (1-1) and a 5.22 earned run average.

Hissa struck out 33 batters in his 39.2 innings pitched this past spring, working mainly as a reliever during his career with Notre Dame.

Lakeshore does not play in the same division as the Duluth Huskies, and the two teams are not scheduled to meet in inter-league play during the 2013 season.
