Baseball team ends season 20-14

The  Concordia baseball team  extended their  1983 season an extra three games when they were invited to participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III Midwest Regional Baseball Tournament  held May 25-26 at Oshkosh, Wis.

Entering the tournament with a 12-6 conference record and 19-12 overall, the Cobbers were stopped with two losses in three games during the double elimination playoff.

In the tournament the Cobbers lost their opener 8-3 to the Otterbein (Ohio) College team, who hit five home runs during the game, including three in the first inning. Otterbein went on to claim the tournament title.

Solid pitching from Howard Berglund,  a junior  from Carrington, N.D., and heavy hitting by the team gave the Cobbers a 13-7 win over Washington University, St. Louis Mo., to put Concordia at 1-1 in the tournament.

The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh eliminated Concordia from the tournament 5-4 in the third game.

For the year pitcher Stephen Anderson  ('83),  Melrose Minn., and Mark Nelson a junior  from  Alexandria Minn., were named the most valuable players of the team Anderson was 7-2 on the season, which was the most wins by a Concordia pitcher in one season. Nelson set club records with 54 hits, 15 doubles, 39 runs batted in and a .429 batting average. At first base, Nelson ended the season with a .984 fielding average or four errors in 243 attempts.

Nelson, Anderson and Brent Helmeke ('83) from New York Mills., were named to the all-Minnesota  Intercollegiate Athletic Conference baseball team. During the conference season,  Helmeke finished third in the MIAC with a .444 batting average and topped the conference with eight  doubles.  Nelson and William Stearns ('83) of Moorhead were also named to the NCAA Division III Midwest Region all-tournament team.
