PLAYERS COME AND GO.
THE GAME REMAINS.


Babe Ruth Baseball has been an integral part of our national pastime’s legacy here in the Chippewa Valley. Generations of players have passed through the Mt. Simon dugouts, playing proudly with Eau Claire on their jersey.


THESE ARE SOME OF THEIR STORIES.

MARK RYSER

President, 2001-Present

We're a town that's really blessed with great places to play baseball. It's not just an old history, or something in the past, we're growing new players for the future.


Nickolas Butler

Any, 1993-1994

TYLER STARICH

PITCHER, CATCHER, 2019 - 2024


This is my lucky bat, the sweet spot. I hit it so hard the laces imprinted.


BASEBALL SPARKED SOMETHING IN ME. BEING YOUNG AND PLAYING AND COMPETING, IT MADE ME WANT TO BE JUST LIKE A BIG LEAGUER.

Tyler Hermann

Short Stop, Pitcher, 2007-2009

TYLER HERMANN

Short Stop, Pitcher 2007-2009

YOU'RE COMPETITIVE BUT IT’S NOT SUPER SERIOUS. YOU CAN STILL HAVE FUN. YOU CAN JUST ENJOY BEING A BASEBALL PLAYER AND BEING A KID.


Paul Lekvin

SS, Pitcher, Catcher, 1984-1986

CALVIN:

I started playing as a kid. This is where I met my boy Griff.


GRIFFIN:

Yeah, I play shortstop, catcher.


CALVIN:

…left bench, right bench.


[THEY BOTH LAUGH]

MT. SIMON IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SPOTS IN THE WORLD. THIS WAS BIGGER THAN LIFE FOR ME.

Dan Roehl

IT'S REALLY EXCITING TO HAVE KIDS THAT PLAY THAT WELL.

It puts fathers and sons together, families together. I get a big kick out of seeing the grandparents show up for tournaments, and them all hugging each other in the parking lot before they leave. It makes it all worthwhile to see them all together.
