Holdgrafer and Mitchell in for 2018 Season

Duluth Minn.—The Duluth Huskies Baseball Club has added two more players to their 2018 roster.  They are Timothy Holdgrafer (RHP) from San Diego, California, and Justin Mitchell (C/OF) from Platte City, Missouri.

Timothy Holdgrafer is in his junior year at Cal Poly Pomona (Pomona, CA).  This season, he has logged 44.2 innings on the mound in 11 appearances.  He has started four games, throwing three complete games out of those starts.  He has posted an ERA of 3.43 and has sent down 38 batters on strikes.  Holdgrafer has also been consistently around the strike zone, only walking 11 batters.  He has also kept the opposition to only a .238 batting average.

Justin Mitchell is a freshman at the University of Oklahoma (Norman, OK).  In his first season with the Sooners, he is hitting .149 with seven hits, four runs, and two RBIs.  He’s played in 21 games, and made nine starts.  Prior to his college career, Mitchell was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 39th round of the 2017 MLB First-Year Player Draft, being selected as the 1,170th overall pick.

Both Holdgrafer and Mitchell are young but look to have a lot of talent to add to the Huskies’ roster this summer.  The Huskies open the 2018 season with five road games, but open at Wade Stadium Sunday, June 3rd against the Eau Claire Express. Season tickets, punch cards, and other ticket packages are still available. Single-game tickets are now on sale too. For more information, contact the Duluth Huskies front office at 218-786-9909 or
