Josh Baker credits USM for shaping him as not just an athlete, but an entire person.
He's been playing baseball since he was old enough to walk into the backyard and pick up a ball with his dad, and next year University School of Milwaukee senior Josh Baker will pitch for the Dolphins of Jacksonville University in Florida. Earning athletic and academic scholarships, Baker said he isn't worried about balancing Division 1 baseball with schoolwork because he's already had practice doing that at USM. "It's hard to balance school now, but I've learned enough over the high school years how to do that," he said. With Wisconsin winter freezing the baseball diamond, Baker is currently playing basketball for USM. He said he is looking forward to being able to play baseball year-round in Florida.

Conference rival Port Washington gets a three-run homer in the seventh to take victory.
Max Kaske doesn’t have nicknames for the bats he uses, but after Tuesday’s results he might want to reconsider. The Port Washington junior switched things up in his last at-bat to turn a good night into a great one as he belted a three-run, moon-shot home run with two out in the top of the seventh to lead the Pirates to an improbable, 6-5 win over No. 1 seed Nicolet in the opening round of the WIAA summer baseball tournament. “I was on deck and I had my other bat and someone told me to use a different bat,” Kaske said. “I picked it up, felt it, I don’t know I just swung and took it over the fence.” Kaske’s long ball resurrected Port’s offense, which had been put to sleep after junior Hunter Crass came in to pitch in the fourth inning for …

The Nicolet baseball team starts its playoff run on Tuesday as the No. 1 seed in its region in the WIAA summer baseball tournament. The Knights host Port Washington at 5:30 p.m. at Stormonth Field. “We’re obviously happy with the No. 1 seed,” senior first baseman D.J. Peltz said. “Yeah, we’ve been scuffling a little bit lately but we came out and had a couple good practices, trying especially to build the chemistry together at the end of the year and make sure everyone’s on the same page. “I think we’re going in (the playoffs) with a little bit of confidence.” …
