1984 Concordia Baseball

 | Roster | Schedule |MIAC Race | Stats | All-MIAC Team |

With an overall record of 27-8 and a conference finish at 12-5, Concordia's baseball team, coached by Don "Bucky" Burgau, had its best season ever. Beside being all-American, Co-captains Berglund and Nelson were named to the all-Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tea along with Kent Kuball 85 second baseman from Mapleton, Minn.

All-Americans highlight season

Six Concordia athletes earned all-American status in baseball, tennis, and track and field this spring, the highest number of Cobbers to be so honored in a single season.

Howard Berglund '84 from Carrington, N.D., garnered two of the prized certificates in baseball and track.

Howard Berglund, who both pitched and played shortstop for the Cobbers, had a .432 batting average. In the 62 2/3 innings he pitched this year, he had 64 strikeouts and an earned-run average of 2.87.

Since baseball was his first love, Berglund hadn't planned to go out for track in college, although he had been an all-state javelin champion in high school. However, when Concordia's baseball season ended early during his junior year, he turned his attention to track, set an MIAC javelin record of 218'4" and qualified for the NCAA national meet where he placed seventh. This year, even though he didn't compete at the conference meet, he again qualified for nationals, placing sixth and earning his all-American status. A summa cum laude graduate in biology, Berglund plans to attend the University of North Dakota Medical School in Grand Forks this fall.

Mark Nelson, the Cobber's first baseman led the team in defense and offense with a .967 fielding percentage and .461 batting average. His 36 runs, 47 hits 12 doubles, three triples five home runs and 31 RBI all team highs. Nelson is a psychology major.
