Posted: Wed, 01/09/2013 - 1:41pm in Athletics

Coming off their first NJCAA College World Series appearance, the St. Cloud Technical & Community College Cyclones baseball team is ranked 5th nationally in the pre-season Collegiate Baseball coaches’ poll and the NJCAA poll.

Kevin Kramer is ranked 2nd as stolen base leader.  

Head coach Jason Fischer is excited about this year’s squad, despite losing two All-Americans, and placing two pitchers and two Assistant Coaches in the NSIC. The Cyclones return a strong nucleus of area athletes including All-Division players Kevin Kramer (EVW) and Dan Sargent (EVW) and starting pitcher Mitch Wurm (Maple Lake).  

“We are young but talented,” Fischer said. “We have speed and depth, and our overall success will be based on how the newcomers develop.”

The following players were recognized as Players to Watch across the nation by Collegiate Baseball:

Go, Cyclones!
