WIAC in the Northwoods League

Jensen Martin (UW-O): Green Bay
Gotta love the fact that they can't even get his name correct, unless there was a formal name change since the end of the season?

I'm assuming that is Catcher, Jensen Hinton from UWO?

I suspect you're correct cubs.  He is listed as a catcher.  I doubled checked this morning just to make sure it wasn't my mistake.  It wasn't he's listed as Jensen Martin. 

If you try to fail and succeed which have you done?

Looks like that isn't the only mistake...  I noticed a kid listed from Belle Plaine, "WI" and thought I should recognize name as that is close to Shawano.  Went to the Augustana website and found out he is actually from Belle Plaine, MN.

WIAC in the Northwoods League

Colin Tremel (UW-O): Duluth
Jordan Wilson (UW-St): Eau Claire
Mason McMahon (UW-L): La Crosse
Jensen Martin (UW-O): Green Bay
Cabe Cuddie (UW-SP): Kenosha
Alex Stodola (UW-SP): Wisconsin
Tommy Duddleston (UW-SP): Wisconsin
Payton Nelson (UW-SP): Wisconsin
Mike Aiello (UW-W): Lakeshore
Nick Schrader (UW-W): Madison

Both Rentz and Jones are listed on Lakeshore's roster but both are graduating seniors so I was surprised to see them on the roster.  Temporary I assume.

While I understand that pitchers can play the summer following graduation ... perhaps they are hoping for one last chance to be seen/signed, especially since both were expected to be selected last year? Also, Aldridge (UWW) had been announced as a returning player for the Rivets, but now his name doesn't appear on their roster.



Ok, I didn't understand that.  I thought graduating seniors were ineligible.  In light of that what you're suggesting makes perfect sense.  Really hope the two get an opportunity.

I guess I understand the need for arms, but a special rule for pitchers seems unfair to a graduating position player like Bryden, for example, who does not have the same opportunity to be seen.

I would love Braden on my summer team.The Goldpanners have no problem with a graduated senior.

Speaking of Daytona Bryden, this is an interesting piece. Does anyone know how many DIII position players have actually ever been drafted following graduation, and with no remaining eligibility? It seems like an unsigned free agent may be a more likely scenario. Regardless, the kid had a fantastic season and deserves every accolade he is receiving.

Maybe he's the infamous "player to be named later" you see in trades.


I suspect you're correct cubs.  He is listed as a catcher.  I doubled checked this morning just to make sure it wasn't my mistake.  It wasn't he's listed as Jensen Martin.

Observing upper peninsula weather for the past 100 years tells me a lot of those FinnU home games are going to end up being played on the road.

How quickly does this restore the Pool A bid to the WIAC?

I don't know how quickly we'd get our bid back but this great news.  When looking at what options the league had available Finlandia was one program I thought could be a possibility but frankly I didn't think they would go for it.  Hopefully this addition lasts longer than Ill. Tech.
