For the second season in a row, the Marshfield High School baseball team will have a first-time head coach.

Jon Bauer replaces Shane Freitag as the Tigers’ manager and inherits a team that finished 13-13 overall and 6-6 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference.

Marshfield won its playoff opener before losing in a WIAA Division 1 regional final to Eau Claire North last spring.

After a few weeks of practice, the Tigers are scheduled to open their season with a nonconference doubleheader Thursday against Eau Claire North at Jack Hackman Field.

Bauer said he has been impressed with what he has seen so far this spring.

“I really like our work ethic,” Bauer said. “I think we’ll have enough good pitching necessary to compete with the new pitch count limits. Our hitting and fielding, hopefully, will be strengths as well.”

The WIAA passed a rule last summer that states a pitcher can throw up to 100 pitches in a day. Three days rest are then required before the player may pitch again. Pitchers who throw 1-30 pitches in a day will not require any rest; 31-49 pitches thrown requires one day rest; 50-75 mandates two days rest; and 76-100 pitches requires three days off before returning the mound.

Seniors Connor Jasurda, Jake Brueggen and Hunter Korger are expected to make up the starting pitching rotation, and Bauer said he will determine the rest as the season moves forward.

Seniors Aaron Braun and Logan Jakobi, juniors Branden Montalvo, Connor Berry, Austin Palacek, Tyler Spaeth, Mitch Wilhelm, and Jared Johnsrud, and sophomore Ryan Krueger will also compete for mound time for the Tigers.

Senior Paul Maguire will see time at catcher and in the outfield for the Tigers are earning first-team all-Wisconsin Valley Conference honors in 2016 as a utility player. He hit .395 with 11 RBIs in conference play a year ago.

Senior outfielder Braden Bohman is also back for his third year on the varsity. He and Brueggen were honorable mention all-conference selections. Bohman hit .326 with 12 runs scored and five stolen bases, and Brueggen was 2-2 with a 4.03 earned-run average in Valley action.

Senior Jared Klein is also back for his third year on the varsity and will catch and play first base.

“Our expectations are to show up, show that we can play, show that we can improve as the season progresses, and show that we can be good teammates,” Bauer said. “I really like the effort this group demonstrates in practice every day.”

Seven Rockets earn all-Cloverbelt East softball honors
Cloverbelt Conference East Division champion Spencer had seven of its nine regular starters named to the all-Cloverbelt East softball team for the 2016 season.

The Rockets won their second-straight Cloverbelt East title, going undefeated again at 12-0 and ran their conference winning streak to 27 games in the process.

Senior pitcher Macie Weber was named conference Player of the Year and was a first-team selection after going a perfect 9-0 on the mound and hitting eight homers in all this season.

“Macie was a great player for us all four years,” Spencer coach Jason Gorst said. “She is a great kid and was very deserving of winning Player of the Year. Her hitting was top notch this year and she won a lot of games for us in the circle. She no doubt had a huge impact on our success. There will be big shoes to fill for sure.”

Shortstop Courtney Buss and catcher Mandie Schultz were also named to the 10-player first team for Spencer. Buss, the Rockets’ leadoff hitter, had two three-hit games during conference play.

“Mandie was a very smart and crafty catcher,” Gorst said. “Defensively, she was very good. Her ability to expand the strike zone for pitchers was remarkable. Courtney stepped in at shortstop and proved to be a high-level athlete. Her baserunning ability also really stood out.”

Sophomore first baseman Lexi Baehr and outfielder Jenna Schober were named to the second team, and outfielder Cinnamin Harwood and designated player Kallie Reckner were honorable mention picks for Spencer.
