Schroeder Gains All-League Baseball Distinction

Central senior relief pitcher Mark Schroeder gained second-team all-Iowa Conference baseball honors.

Senior left fielder Spencer Gritsch received honorable mention.

Like many of the Dutch spring teams, the baseball squad was youth-dominated, as reflected in its 10-30 record, including a 7-21 conference mark.

Schroeder posted a team-best 3.16 earned run average, fanning 19 hitters while walking six in 25.2 innings. Gritsch hit .287, including a team-high .309 in conference play.

Freshman first baseman Ryan Bouwman was Central’s top hitter with a .310 average while promising freshman shortstop Garrett Saunders hit .298 and junior catcher Michael Reuter cracked six home runs with 29 RBIs.
