Former O’Gorman Player Connor Schaefbauer is the Big Ten Freshman of the Week
Former O’Gorman High School standout Connor Schaefbauer is the Freshman of the Week in Ben Ten Conference baseball.
Schaefbauer, a second baseman for Minnesota, hit .313 against North Dakota State and Iowa last weekend. Starting in all four games, he went 1-3 against the Bison and reached base nine times at Iowa. Against the Hawkeyes, Schaefbauer drove in four runs and scored three to help Minnesota take two of three.
This season, Schaefbauer has the second best batting average on the Gopher roster (.310). He also has 17 RBI, with five double, and has scored 10 runs.
The honor, the first of Schaefbauer’s career, comes the same week he moved into the leadoff spot in the Minnesota lineup.
