Fall Recap, Spring Preview

Both the DI and DII teams got off to strong starts in the Fall season.

DI went undefeated in the fall winning the Duel in the Dells tournament in Mauston, WI. DI also swept a three game series on the road against Marquette in conference play, scoring 35 runs across the three games.

DII hosted a ranked Creighton team for a three game weekend series. Each game was tight, but with solid pitching, good defense, and timely hitting, DII took two out of three in the series and now sits atop the conference standings.

Both DI and DII will head to Panama City Beach, Florida for spring break the week of March 11-18 for the NCBA Swing Into Spring spring training games.

The DI team will look to carry its fall hot stretch into the spring. Their conference schedule for the spring goes:

3/31-4/2 vs UW-Milwaukee
4/7-4/9 @ Northwestern
4/21-4/23 vs Whitewater

DII will defend its top spot in the standings against these conference foes in the spring:

3/31-4/2 @ Wayne State
4/7-4/9 @ Northwestern Missouri
4/14-4/16 vs La Crosse

On Wisconsin!

Super Senior Spotlight: JJ Lamb

Happy Graduation Day! We’ve got one more player to show off and that is our favorite super senior/grad student/Mr. President himself JJ Lamb. We tried to cut him freshman year, and he wouldn’t leave. We voted someone else as president last year, so he came back to UW for grad school just so he could run the team this year.  Ball is life with this one.

Position: C, OF, Keeper of Stats

Major: MS Biomedical Engineering

Nickname: The Great Lambino (but no one calls him that)

Favorite Baseball Team: Minnesota Twins

Favorite Baseball Movie: Moneyball

Years on Club Team: 5

Notable Stats: Only president to pinch hit for himself with the bases loaded in a one run game (it worked, by the way)

Favorite Club memory: Jake Gain’s grand slam against Ohio St. in the 2019 regional championship and clinching a World Series appearance

Favorite thing about club ball: Just a bunch of dudes who love baseball

Quote: “You just kept showing up to everything and eventually someone said, ‘F it, just put the kid on D2.'” -D2 Coach Austin Grimm

What’s next for you? Jumping state lines and going to the University of Minnesota for a PhD in Mechanical Engineering.

Congratulations to all our seniors!

Thanks to everyone for all your support of our program this year. Looking forward to the next season and we hope to be able to see everyone again on a ball field soon! Go Badgers!

Senior Spotlight: Ryan Wenzel

We keep on, keeping on. Today’s senior is D2’s left fielder and leadoff man for the last 2 years: Ryan Wenzel. He was a left handed hitter who so consistently poked singles in the short-third hole, it basically became the Wenz Special.

Position: LF

Major: Food Science

Nickname: Wenz

Favorite Baseball Team: Milwaukee Brewers

Favorite Baseball Movie: Sandlot

Years on Club Team:

Notable Stats: A career 0.372 hitter (58/156) with 32 RBI, mostly as a leadoff hitter

Favorite Club memory: Each year of club baseball was packed with great memories and hard fought games. Nothing’s better than playing baseball in Florida during spring break each year in March, and heading to the beach (or bar) with your teammates after the game. Being a part of last year’s D2 World Series team was truly special- it was a team full of guys who never gave up. I’m thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of the club, and I’ve made many life long friends because of it.

Quote: “It’s not a sword!” (crazy things happen in the OF)

What’s next for you? Ryan is headed to work in the lab of a local spice and flavor manufacturer as a food scientist.

Thank you and best of luck, Ryan!

Senior Spotlight: Karson Krueger

Batting today for the Wisconsin seniors is one of it’s finest hitters. Karson Krueger was a player known for swinging a really long bat, hitting baseballs super far, and having some of the greatest “scoops” over at first base.

Position: STRICTLY 1B

Hometown: Appleton, WI

Major: Finance & Risk Management

Nickname: Kruegerbomb

Favorite Baseball Team: Milwaukee Brewers

Baseball movie: Moneyball

Years on club team: 3 years

Notable Stats: Hit .429 with 3 Home Runs and was selected as a First-Team All American during the 2019 season. Also has 5 career stolen bases (“Kid’s got speed” – No scout ever)

Favorite Club Memory: Clinching a World Series birth after beating Ohio State and hitting a walk-off against Mizzou during Spring Break

Favorite thing about club ball: Having the opportunity to continue playing the game of baseball while making a great new group of friends along the way

Quote: “Yeah, you definitely should have made the team your freshman year” – Bobby (Former Club Baseball President)

What’s next for you? I will be starting as a Project Manager at Epic in June!

Thank you, Karson!
