Chad Pierce knows a thing or two about baseball in Wisconsin. He's a graduate from Fond du Lac High School, he's spent some time with the Sheboygan A's, and he just finished up his ball at UW-Milwaukee. Now, he's going to be playing for the Milwaukee Brewers - or at least, in their farm system should he so choose. Pierce was taken in the 38th round of the MLB Player Draft, going at pick number 1,151 overall. In In 15 starts for the Panthers, Pierce was 6-4 with a 3.21 ERA. Congrats to Chad and maybe we'll try to get him on a podcast, which we are looking to get started with in the next week or two.
The Pierce selection comes one day after another former Fond du Lac Cardinal was taken in the MLB Player Draft, as Sam Munson has been selected by the Atlanta Braves organization.
