The 2019 Eau Claire Bears look to keep things rolling after another successful season in which the Bears won 17 games in Manager Chevy Tollefson’s first year. The Bears had a great run in the WBA playoffs last year winning their regional in haugen to advance to state last season. The Bears came up short in the State Tournament losing in the first round.
Individually the bears had one All CRBL player last year in Sam Janni. Janni led the CRBL last season in hits last year with 36 and finished the year batting .474. Bears also would like to recognize Brian Menard as he collected 23 hits last season bringing his career total to 410 hits. That makes Menard only the 7th player in history to surpass 400 hits and makes him number 7 in all time hits. To top it of Menard also tied Jim Falls Legend Roger Bergeron for the all time record for triples with 14. Also to mention Reed Pecha was awarded an honorable mention all CRBL award.
The bears will look to continue their run of success this year returning their main core of players but also adding a couple of notable CRBL players as well. 2018 ALL CRBL award winners Todd Lasher and Jimmy Anderson will join the Bears to round out an already explosive offense. And newcomer Jonathan Novas looks to bring an exciting new bat and arm to the roster. The Bears are excited to start their second season at Cinder City Park in Altoona. We hope to bring you another exciting season this year and look to bring home some gold. GO BEARS!
