This year, the Woodchucks already have five more wins than they did during the entire first half of last season. One player who's been incredible setting the table this year has been Brooks Braga.
Braga knows how to get things started for his team. He bats leadoff for the Chucks and is having a heck of a season.
The soon-to-be senior at UW La Crosse leads the league in runs scored, crossing the plate 36 times coming into Wednesday.
But he does everything you hope a leadoff man does. Braga's batting over .300 and leads the team in hits, doubles and steals.
Braga has a .456 on base percentage coming into Wednesday, thanks in part to 27 walks.
The Chucks are fighting to climb back into the Northwoods League south division standings. For that, they'll need Braga to keep it going on the basepaths.
