Sheboygan A's Baseball

Three infielders commit to A’s

Posted: March 27, 2013

The 2013 Sheboygan A’s infield just got better.

Three middle infielders, two returnees and one first year player have joined the club.

The returnees are Trevor Theissen and Sam Mattheis and the first year player is Brady Callahan.

Theissen, a redshirt freshman at UW-Milwaukee, was an impact player as a first year player for the A’s last season, hitting .288 in 41 games. Theissen helped Franklin High School to state championships in both his junior and senior seasons. An offensive and defensive standout at Franklin, he was named to the first team All-State, All-Conference, All-Area, All-District and All-Suburban teams.

To date, he has appeared in eight games this season for UWM.

Mattheis was plagued by injuries in his first season with the A’s and appeared in only 18 games. He is currently stinging the ball at a .450 clip with four extra base hits through the first nine games for Wisconsin Lutheran. As a freshman there last spring, he started 35 of WLC’s 48 games and hit .280.

Callahan cracked the starting line-up at Lakeland in his first season there after transferring from Carroll University. A Sheboygan South grad, Callahan hit .319 for the Sheboygan Legion Team last year with a pair of home runs.

“These three will all contribute,” general manager Denny Moyer said. “Theissen and Mattheis both missed a lot of games last year with injures and work conflicts, but they are both ready to go fulltime. And Callahan can hit. He’s got some pop.”

The club has scheduled a Wildwood Park park clean-up day for its members on Saturday, April 6, beginning at 8 a.m.

“High school play is supposed to start next week, but I don’t know when that field will be ready. It is going to be mushy for quite a while after this snow leaves us – if it ever does,” Moyer said.

The A's have helped develop more than 43 players that have reached professional baseball, including 2002 World Series Champion Jarrod Washburn (Anaheim Angels).
