Despite all the players who have donned Sheboygan A’s uniforms since the club’s first season in 1963, the name of Dale Ahrens always comes to the top of the list when the reminiscing gets around to the best long ball hitter.

Ahrens’ home runs truly were bombs.

He played for 10 seasons, 1969 through 1978, and despite playing all his home games in spacious Legion Memorial Park, Ahrens crushed 41 home runs.

His best year was in 1975 when he hit .344 with nine doubles, three triples and 10 home runs.

With the power alleys in his home park measuring well over 400 feet, Ahrens still managed to hit a homer run once in every 24 at bats. He led the team in home runs for five straight years, 1973 through 1977 and was a 2-time team most valuable player and batting average leader.
