What an absolute amazing year for the D2 ball club!
After the season was all said and done, D2 made it all the way to the World Series for the first time in several years and finished third for all of D2 Club Baseball.
D2 finished the year with a 23-7 overall record and beat some of the top competition in the country including top ranked Ohio State in regionals, along with Georgia Southern, SUNY-Binghamton and Air Force, all who were World Series teams.
D2 also dominated in conference play going 10-2 throughout the year.
After dropping in Regionals for the last 8 years, D2 finally did the job as they beat GVSU, UND and OSU in riveting games from start to finish.
The World Series was an unbelievable experience for this team as they made a great run and ended up with a 3rd place finish.
D2 was lead by the likes of Ryan Molini (P) and Karson Krueger (1B) who both were voted to First Team All-American team!
Molini finished 7-0 with 5 complete games, a 0.94 ERA, and 44 Ks in 48 innings.
Krueger finished hitting .418, while raking up 25 RBI’s and launching 3 bombs throughout the season, with two of those homers coming in the Regionals in huge spots.
The whole team excelled up and down the lineup and this was one of the best seasons ever produced by a Wisconsin Club Baseball Team. All of the boys had a lot to feel proud of and we are going to miss all of the seniors who graduated. But next year is full of big promise as 6 of our starters are returning (including Molini and Krueger) and D2 looks to make it back to the World Series and bring that national championship back to Madison!
