2019 marks the third season of play for the Eau Claire Rivermen. Established in 2017, the ‘Men have been right on the cusp of qualifying for the CRBL playoffs each of their first two seasons. Sporting an 11 and 11 record in 2018, the Rivermen had an incredible nine games decided by one or two runs. During those nail biters, they managed to swim away with six wins and three losses.
The 2019 version of the ‘Men will have several familiar faces, as stalwart veterans Josh Briggs, Tyler Gray (2018 All-CRBL, Utility), Andy Niese (2018 All-CRBL, Catcher), Zach Parr, Hans Soukup, and Sawyer Sturz return for another round of CRBL battles.
Solidifying their place in CRBL and Rivermen lore are returning standouts Matt Alley (2018 CRBL Honorable Mention, Utility), Dayton Gutsch, Dalton Hutton, and Alex Rocksvold.
The mound staff for the guys in Navy Blue and Grey will be built on the right-handed arms of ironclad durable Tyler Gray, hard throwing Jesse Urbanek, and crafty James Davis. The additions of big lefty Will Petrosky as well as young righty Cade Osborn will provide needed depth and variety for Eau Claire’s newest amateur baseball team.
The Eau Claire Rivermen would like to sincerely thank our loyal fans and generous sponsors as we eagerly look forward to playing baseball in 2019. GO RIVERMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
