Ten players who played in the 5th Annual Madison Mallards/MLB Alumni Game:
- Mark Whiten (MLB, 1990-97)
- Jon Olson (Butler, Mallards 2003-04)
- Jack Clark (MLB, 1975-92)
- Steve Schmitt (Mallards owner, 2001-2010)
- Jay Johnstone (MLB, 1966-85)
- Matt Freisleben (UW-Milwaukee, Mallards 2001)
- Vern Geishert (MLB, 1969)
- Jeff Zielke (UW-Stevens Point, Mallards 2006-07)
- Brad Woodall (MLB, 1994-9)
- Dr. Jake Eiler (St. Scholastica, Mallards 2003-04)
Eiler is sort of the Moonlight Graham of the Northwoods League, I guess. He earned his MD from the University of Minnesota Medical School-Duluth Campus this past May.
Olson was the MVP; he went 3-for-3 at the plate, drove in the winning run, and, since he pitched the last two innings, was the winning pitcher. Not too shabby.
