The Missoula Paddleheads are killing it this season. Riding a 6-game winning streak, as of Tuesday, June 11, the Paddleheads have yet to lose at home.

Knock on wood. 

Now, the Paddleheads are celebrating one of their own signing with a Major League Baseball team.

Congratulations to Connor Schultz.

"It's been a crazy experience," Schultz said in the Paddlheads video. "Just the support from everybody has been incredible. This doesn't feel like it's our first year together. Feels like we've known each other forever and this team just gets along so well."

Schultz signed with the Chicago Cubs on June 10th. The signing is a bit of a homecoming as Schultz is from Iowa and played his collegiate ball at Butler University in Indianapolis and at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.

Over the last three seasons, Schultz posted a 12-5 record with a 4.70 ERA in his 30 games (27 starts) of action.

Schultz hasn't been assigned a team yet. The Chicago Cubs have a Single-A team in Myrtle Beach (Pelicans), High-A team in South Bend (Cubs), Double-A team in Tennessee (Smokies) and a Triple-A team in Iowa (Cubs).

In other Paddleheads news, former Paddlehead Zach Penrod debuted at the Triple-A level in May with the Worchester Red Sox against former Missoula Osprey Touki Toussaint with the Charlotte Knights.
