The Osakis baseball team featured a new-look roster this spring season with a lot of inexperienced players, and the Silverstreaks hope to be able to lean on some of those guys for good things in the future.

Freshman Ben Berger is one of the guys the Silverstreaks believe in a bright future with. Berger earned Osakis’ Pitcher of the Year Award after stepping into a role as one of this team’s top starters.

Bauer Klimek

Junior Bauer Klimek earned the Silverstreaks’ Golden Glove Award as the team’s top defensive player, and senior Waylon Muenzhuber was the Silver Slugger Award winner as the team’s offensive MVP.

Osakis finished the season with a 5-13 overall record and 3-5 mark in the Prairie Conference.
