Reschke Returns to A’s
Posted: April 28, 2011
Charlie Reschke, a 4-year starter and record-holder at UW-Milwaukee and a .305 hitter in four full seasons and parts of two others with the Sheboygan A’s, will rejoin the city ball club for the 2011 season.
He is one of four more players who have signed on for upcoming seasons.
The others are pitcher Jack Larsen, pitcher-infielder Ryan Hamm and infielder-catcher Harry Steldt.
Reschke was a 4-year first team all-conference selection in baseball and a 3-year all-conference selection as a football quarterback at Sheboygan North. He had the UWM records for doubles and games played when he graduated and still ranks in the top five in those categories and in at bats and hits.
He was a regular with the A’s in 2002 and again in 2005-07. He spent the in-between years with the LaCrosse Loggers of the Northwoods League along with UWM and A’s teammate Ben Stanczyk. The middle infielder hit .294, .324, .330 and .287 in his four years with the A’s, despite coping with injuries in the 2007 season.
Larsen, a 6-foot-7 right-hander currently playing at UW-Whitewater, started seven games for the A’s last season and went 4-3 with a save. He struck out 40 in 48 innings. He started at UW-Parkside and played at Madison College last year.
Like Reschke, Hamm was a standout player at North High School where he was named to the All-Conference team and was North’s Pitcher of the Year. He joined the A’s following the Legion season and didn’t surrender an earned run in 4 innings pitched. He is currently playing at Illinois Wesleyan
Steldt comes to the A’s from West Bend, via Concordia Collegte, where he is a teammate of Matt and Ryan Schilter. Steldt was a first team All-Conference player and second team all-District and all-State player for the West Bend Spartans. He is a third baseman/first baseman/catcher. He has cracked the starting line-up at Concordia and at this writing was hitting .379 with a pair of home runs.
