Sluggers end with 14-4 record

Concordia's baseball team finished second in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Conference with an overall record of 18-13 and a conference finish at 14-4.

Hampered by a slow start, including the loss of six out of seven games in a March tournament, the Cobbers rallied to win 15 of their last 16 games. St. Thomas won the MIAC title and finished second in NCAA Division III Midwest regional play.

According to Coach Don 'Bucky" Burgau, four Concordia players - outfielders Eric Jacobson '86, Bloomington, Minn., and Greg Toivonen '86, Starbuck, Minn., and pitchers Doug Kovash '86, Fargo, N.D., and John Riewer '86, Staples, Minn. - were named to the MIAC team. Jacobson, Kovash and Riewer were also named to the Midwest regional team. Jacobson finished the season with a .453 batting average to give him seventh place in the MIAC, while Toivonen finished in 17th place with a .385 average. Joel Smith '87, Phoenix, Ariz., finished with a batting average of .435. Kovash finished the season with an earned-run average of 2.74, the seventh best in the league, and a 5-2 win-loss record. Riewer was voted Most Valuable Player by his teammates at the end of the season.
