STORIES, MEMORIES AND camaraderie took place on June 29 when the 1958 Sleepy Eye Amateur baseball team reunited at the Eagles Orchid Inn. The team took first place at the 1958 Western Minny Tournament and got together on Saturday to relive the past. Almost everyone on the team came to celebrate, including Don Boelter, who was the organizer of the event. A few of the players on the team went on to play professional baseball, including Bill Horn who played for the Washington Nationals and the Cleveland Indians, Walt Dzeick with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Fred Brackbauer who pitched a single game for the Twins. Brackbauer’s one and only major league pitching debut was an interesting one. He faced four batters and never recorded an out. He is one of only 19 pitchers in MLB history with a career earned-run average of infinity.
