SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Dylan Axelrod helped the Santa Barbara Foresters win their first National Championship in 2006. Mike Kenney pitched in the first game of the 2008 season and the Foresters won another title that year. Now both pitchers are the newest members of the Santa Barbara Foresters Hall of Fame.

Axelrod is a 2003 Santa Barbara High School graduate and also pitched for Santa Barbara City College. He made twenty starts last year with the Chicago White Sox.
Kenney pitched for the Foresters in the 2007 season and started the 2008 campaign before being drafted into pro baseball.
