Mudhens induct three people into hall of fame

Anita Freiermuth, Chairperson of the Hall of Fame Committee, announced that this year’s inductees to the 2013 Miesville Baseball Hall of Fame are Harry Davis, Mark Johnson and Bob Werner.

Davis played from 1990 to 2003. He 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.

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.

Werner is a “non-player” inductee who played a key role in building the current home of the Mudhens, Jack Ruhr Stadium. Werner 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.
