Hart baseball to honor Bauer, Wolf

The Hart Indians baseball program will hold its annual alumni game this Saturday, and as part of the festivities will induct its latest class to the Hart Baseball Wall of Fame.

The Indians are honoring 2009 graduate Trevor Bauer and 1973 graduate Mike Wolf to a wall of greats that already includes Major Leaguers like Bob Walk, Todd Zeile, James Shields, Chris Valaika, Greg Garrett and Steve Susdorf, to name a few.

Bauer played two varsity seasons with the Indians (2007 and 2008) and was 12-0 as a junior in 2008.

He graduated from Hart in January 2009 so he didn’t play his senior year of high school.

Bauer won the Golden Spikes Award in 2011, which goes to the top amateur baseball player in the country, and he was drafted out of UCLA by the Arizona Diamondbacks third overall in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

Bauer made his Major League debut June 28, 2012 for the Diamondbacks and is now in the Cleveland Indians organization.

“He is well deserving,” said Hart head coach Jim Ozella, who is now in his 15th season at the helm of the program. “His record in high school stands for itself and his record in college stands for itself. He is one of the greatest college pitchers in history and obviously proved hard work brings success.”

Wolf was a 22nd-round pick of the Chicago White Sox in 1973 and had a promising baseball career cut short by a knee injury, Ozella said.

“Well respected by all his classmates. A lot of people coming to honor him,” Ozella said. “His name has always been one that’s been recommended (for the Wall of Fame).”

The event begins at 9 a.m. and features a three-inning alumni game. For more information on the event, contact Chris Gagnon at chris@pacificlift.com.
