Pointers have Northwoods League experience


By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  The Pointer baseball team enters the 2010 season ranked 15th in all the land in D3.

Point enters with high hopes too as the team returns the majority of its lineup from year ago.

Another thing helping with that experience is the fact that six Pointers played in the Northwoods League last summer.

Time spent in one of the best college summer leagues certainly helps.

Says Head Coach Pat Bloom, "It says a lot about those kids that they're willing to basically sacrifice their entire summer to try and better themselves on the baseball field, and there's no doubt that it filters down to the rest of their teammates when they get back."

Says Senior Jeremy Richter, "Playing every day in that league, it's one of the better leagues in the country, and it was exciting to play against the best competition, and be competitive every day on the field was a very good experience."
