Gardner Inducted into WSL Hall

Posted: January 29, 2014

Sheboygan A's shortstop Tom Gardner, who hit over .300 for
six straight seasons, won a batting title and shared MVP honors was inducted
into the Wisconsin State Baseball League Hall of Fame in ceremonies at the league's annual Awards and Hall of Fame Dinner held at the Sheboygan Yacht Club
on January 25.


Gardner,
a key performer in Sheboygan's first WSL championship in 1991, finished his
9-year State League career with a .323 batting average, that ranks ninth in the
league's all-time list of players with 800 or more plate appearances.


He hit
.422 to lead the league in 1992 and in 1993 was selected as the league's co-MVP
with Dan Miller of Green Bay.


The
scrappy shortstop ranks fifth in career assists and seventh in double plays.


Joining Gardner
in the Hall of Fame Class of 2013 elected by the State League's Hall of Fame
Committee and inducted with him were R.D. Boschulte, who played for Madison in
1971-78; Troy Evers, Green Bay, 1991-1995, 1998; Bill McQueen, Janesville,
1988-2006; Mike Pierce, Addison and Lombard, 1997-2013; and Steve Schulz, Green
Bay, 1974-1981.
