 Baseball team wins 10 of last 11 games

After an illness-plagued season-opening trip to Arkansas and a 3-7 start in the MIAC race, the Cobbers'  hitting and pitching warmed up. The result was 10 wins in the last 11 games. The baseball team finished 10-8 in the MIAC, good enough for sixth place but just one game out of a four-way tie for third. The Cobbers were 16-17 overall.

The team was led by two veteran standouts from last fall's football team. Seniors Terry Horan, Willmar, Minn., and Doug Toivonen, Starbuck, Minn., brought their football all-conference credentials to the diamond and enjoyed similar results. Both were named to the MIAC's all-conference baseball team by league coaches. Toivonen was named Cobber Most Valuable Player on the strength of his .365 batting average, his 5-0 record and 1.10 earned-run average in his last five starts on the mound, and for some other  minor things, such as leading the team in home runs and runs batted in. Horan earned NCAA all-region honors with his smooth .400 batting average and the fact that he  was safe on 22 of 23 stolen base attempts. Wade Hanson '89 Willmar, completed an errorless MIAC season at second base and hit .515 in MIAC games.

Hanson achieved a rare sports double when he was named to the MIAC's spring academic all-conference team. He had previously been named to the winter academic all-conference team as a point guard for the basketball team. He graduated in May with a 3.78 GPA in biology.
