Nettleton plans what he’s learned under several mentors for success with Loggers

We’re days away from the start of the Logger’s season, and as their schedule gives them a total of three days off the team is going to be all over the place with their cramped schedule.

But for one Logger constantly moving is something he’s used to.

Clayton Nettleton has made plenty of stops in his young career.

The pitcher from Davenport, Iowa has played ball for the University of Iowa, Kirkwood Community College, and is now planning to transfer to another university after he wraps up this year.

Two weeks ago Nettleton didn’t know he was coming up to La Crosse for the summer but once he got the call from his coach he quickly packed his bags and made his way here for his first summer season.

He’s focusing on using the wide variety of mentors he’s had to better his game.

“Learning from different people and being able to take in all the information I had, from Tom Gorzelanny at Iowa who’s a big leaguer and was one of the best coaches that I’ve had, and Coach Caenepeel at Kirkwood has been great too and he’s a young coach that’s been doing something great to start out at a Community College. It’s just taking in information from everybody and put it together to where I am today,” said the young right-hander.

Nettleton was used as a relief pitcher in his short season at Kirkwood.
