The Whitehall Wolves have opted to not participate in the 2020 season. The league will welcome them back in 2021.
First, the Wolves players would like to congratulate the WBA state champion Eau Claire Cavaliers and the Tilden Tigers, Osseo Merchants, and Eau Claire Bears for their great representation of the Chippewa River Baseball League at the WBA State Tournament last year.
The Wolves finished the season 14-8 in league play, losing all eight games to the above-mentioned teams in some really good baseball games. We will need to win some of those close games this year to be competitive for a CRBL championship.
The Wolves will once again rely on pitching and defense as their strength. The pitching staff will once again be led by the strong arms of our veterans Alex Byom, Scott Hovell, Troy Sharp, and Zak Pronschinske. Newcomers Blake Theisse, Jon Cieminski, and Isaac Marley look to give the Wolves quality innings this year.
The defense behind these pitchers is led by our veterans Scott Hovell, Nate Pronschinske, and Kyle Servais. Brett Lettner will be our shortstop once again this year. Newcomers Parker Windjue and Trace Bjorge will be looking to give us some depth in the infield as well. The Wolves speedy outfield is led by centerfielder Trent Vondrasek, left fielder Alex Byom, and right fielder Sam Schweisthal. Carter Halverson, Isaac Marley, Payton Slaby, and newcomer Brock Haines will give us needed depth in the outfield this year. Jordan Hauser, rookie of the year in the CRBL last year, and veteran Max Ferguson will handle the catching duties. They are a big part of holding down an opposing team’s running game.
You need to score runs to win titles. In the offensive department, the Wolves are led by Nate Pronschinske, Jordan Hauser, Scott Hovell, Trent Vondrasek, Kyle Servais, Max Ferguson, Alex Byom, Sam Schweisthal, Sam Hirschbaeck, and Zak Pronschinske. The Wolves will be playing a tough 25 game schedule this year so all players on the roster will have opportunities to contribute.
The Whitehall Wolves would like to thank our sponsor Dave Pientok of Tri-City Sanitation and the entire Whitehall community for their support of Wolves baseball. We would also like to thank Tom & Connie from Newcomb Valley Inn for hosting and supporting our annual fundraiser each year. Finally, we would like to thank Mary Little and Butch Halama for their tremendous coverage of Wolves’ baseball. These guys cover nearly every Wolves’ game no matter where we play. We hope to see you at the park this summer for some exciting Chippewa River Baseball League games.
