Local Eric Fritz shines for Chucks in final Extra Innings


By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  These are the things that usually happen when you clinch a playoff spot on the very last day of the season as the Chucks did Monday. But it's gonna take a lot more than shaving cream to make Eric Fritz shave his playoff mustache.

Says Eric Fritz, "I've had the mustache for about a week and a half or so and we won nine straight, can't change things now, so let's just let it run."

The infielder stars during the college season right down I-39 at UW-Stevens Point, and this local guy is willing to do everything, play any position in order to keep this team's playoff run alive.

Says Fritz, "I figure the more versatile you are, the more special you are to a team. I'm not a guy that's gonna hit for power, but as long as I'm having a quality at-bat every time, getting on when I need to, that's all I really need to do."

Says Guido Aspeitia, "There's a reason he's our team captain, he's the guy and he brings his heart and soul to this ballclub and a year ago he did the same thing."

Says Fritz, "This is a special opportunity tonight and we really wanna jump on it, and we wanna seize the opportunity."
