The Owatonna Boys Baseball team is swinging into action. They have a solid season so far with the record of 6-8. The Huskies hope to keep up the hard work and bounce back from the couple of losses. They had a tournament in St. Cloud on May 4th  and 5th and obtained a winning record of 2-1. 

This year, there are several seniors graduating. After being injured earlier in the year., senior captain Taylor Bogen is coming back into action for baseball.

“When I was fully cleared, I was excited and relieved to be able to have one last season.”

— Bogen

Many of his teammates and coaches are very excited to see him back in action for his last baseball season. This season has been very different from the past years due to crazy and unpredictable weather. Head Coach Tate Cummins said, “Early in the season, it has been so cold and had to deal with wet fields and I think not knowing what the weather is going to bring us was a challenge.” Many of the players and coaches had to adapt to the weather but that never stopped them from finding success on the field. 

This year’s team has many great leaders who are constantly setting great examples and helping out the underclassmen. Senior captain Caleb Vereide said, “The Four captains have shown strong leadership and togetherness through the season.” Everyone works very hard and they work as a unified whole. Coach Cummins is very proud of how well everyone shows determination and leadership on this team.  

Owatonna will play their next game at in Albert Lea on Tuesday, May 24.
