Anita Freiermuth, Chairperson of the Hall of Fame Committee, announces the winners for the 2013 Miesville Baseball Hall of Fame. Harry Davis, Mark Johnson and Bob Werner are this year's inductees.
Denny Hoffmann, spokesperson for the Miesville Dugout Club, reports on these men about to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Harry Davis played from 1990 to 2003. Davis played centerfield for most of his career. Davis was a talented runner, with a strong throwing arm and could hit for both average and power. During his career he played in several State tournaments and was named to two "All State Tournament Teams."
Mark Johnson pitched and played the outfield for the Mudhens from 1974 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998. He managed from 2002 to 2005 and was a member of the Mudhen Board of Directors from 1995 to 2007.
During his career he was on eight State Tournament Teams winning championships in 1978 and 1995 and was named to the All State Tournament Team in 1979.
Bob Werner is a "non-player" inductee who played a key role in building the Mudhen stadium that we all enjoy today. Bob was instrumental in lighting the park, installing the scoreboard, building the press box, installing bleachers and many other chores that needed to be done over the years.
The 2013 members will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Friday, July 12, at Jack Ruhr Field in Miesville prior to the Miesville Mudhen/Randolph game at 8 p.m.
