Ten random things: August 13

Ten players who played in the 5th Annual Madison Mallards/MLB Alumni Game:

  1. Mark Whiten (MLB, 1990-97)
  2. Jon Olson (Butler, Mallards 2003-04)
  3. Jack Clark (MLB, 1975-92)
  4. Steve Schmitt (Mallards owner, 2001-2010)
  5. Jay Johnstone (MLB, 1966-85)
  6. Matt Freisleben (UW-Milwaukee, Mallards 2001)
  7. Vern Geishert (MLB, 1969)
  8. Jeff Zielke (UW-Stevens Point, Mallards 2006-07)
  9. Brad Woodall (MLB, 1994-9)
  10. 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.
