Holmen grad Ben Cejka is getting a chance to compete in the Northwoods League.
The pitcher has appeared in three games in relief for the Loggers, allowing 13 hits. It's not an ideal start, but Cejka is hoping to turn it around. He's coming off a fantastic sophomore season at UW-L.
"To get this experience is like nothing I'll probably ever experience, unless I make it past college baseball," Cejka said. "It's the thrill of a lifetime."
Cejka is on a temporary contract, and the Loggers have until later this month to decide whether to keep him. In the meantime, his friends and family are enjoying the moment.
"I know a lot of people that come and watch," Cejka said. "It's exciting to see all the people that come out and support me."20546958
