UMC baseball received verbal acceptance from Roseau’s Aaron Wensloff. YES Coach Steve Gust is trying to reach every Wensloff in Roseau!!! Joking aside, he’s getting a player that fits his program perfectly. A kid who is skilled in all facets of the game, works hard, loves baseball and is another local kid who should be doing great things at UMC.
