Duluth, Minn. – As we inch closer to the Thanksgiving holiday, Husky fans from all around are thankful
for summer days, fresh-cut grass, and a cold Bent Paddle pint (or two). Although it’s a little too chilly for
the home opener at legendary Wade Stadium, it’s a great time to pick up some new Husky gear from
Harley’s Hut for the holiday season! Let’s get down to it; now introducing the newest members of your
Duluth Huskies.

Bret Madren 6’3’’, 220-pound catcher from Sandy Springs, GA. He attended St.Francis high school and
later committed to play college baseball in Missouri. He’s a powerful right-handed hitter that isn’t afraid
to take a fastball deep; confidently stepping into pitches and sending them soaring into left field, and
making it look easy. His power is also shown on defense when he delivers balls to second base urgently.
He rarely lets anything get past home plate. Madren’s strong and elevated frame will make for a durable
safety net behind home plate when the Duluth Huskies take the field in 2020.

Wesley Case is a 6’2’’, 195-pound right-handed pitcher from Granbury, TX. He attended Granbury High
School and then committed to play college baseball with the Murray State Aggies. Case spent last
Summer playing for the Hastings Sodbusters of the Expedition League where he appeared in 8 games
and pitched 29.1 innings, finishing with an ERA of 4.6 and a 500 record; doing what he could to help out
a displeasing Sodbusters 2019 campaign. He will look to take the next step into the Northwoods League
in 2020, playing with the up and coming Duluth Huskies. This young man will no doubt be a standout
when he enters the Twin Ports with his incredible mullet; its a signature look that doesn’t disappoint.

Blake Rohm is a 6’5’’ RHP from Superior, Colorado. He attended Broomfield High School and later
committed to play D1 college baseball at the University of Virginia. Rohm is working towards a degree in
Economics but has big dreams to play Major League Baseball. Rohm has an impressive 90 mph fastball and shows versatility with his speedy 6.5-second 60-yard dash. He was named a 2019 JUCO All-Academic
All-American and a member of the 2018 ACC Academic Honor roll. He has some great advice for a young
up and coming baseball player, “Play hard and have fun” Rohm says,” These are two areas you can
control and be an athlete has a short shelf life”.

Have a safe and memorable Thanksgiving break Husky fans. Enjoy the time with family and friends, eat
too much, and count your blessings. Call or stop by the office with any questions or to secure your 2020
tickets. Get your loved one what they really want this holiday season with fresh Duluth Huskies gear and
