Consensually the best player in Sheboygan A's history, and arguably the best in Wisconsin State League history, Lee Wetenkamp was inducted into the A's Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.

A .397 career hitter, Wetenkamp hit over .400 four times including two tremendous years -- 1987 and 1988 when he put .454 and .451 seasons together. His slugging percentage was over .800 in both seasons as he belted out 74 extra base hits in 100 games. Wetenkamp led the club in hitting nine years out of ten from 1981 through 1989 with only Gene Mand's .410 season in 1984 breaking the string. He won the club's MVP award eight times including a string of six straight seasons. His annual average in his 11 years was: .408, .370, .391, .357, .425, .390, .454, .451, 383, .366 and .360.

He holds 10 club records. Wetenkamp, an infielder, was the State League's MVP four times: 1981, 1985, 1988 and 1989. He was also the league's Rookie of the Year in 1981 and led the league in hitting in 1989. He played in 521 games at second base, third base and shortstop for the A's.
