Duluth, Minn.- The first domino has fallen into place for the Huskies 2021 baseball season. 3rd baseman Mike Boeve of Hastings, Nebraska has signed to the Duluth roster. The 18-year-old acquisition marks the first of many moves to come for the Huskies 2021 season after having the 2020 campaign discarded amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Boeve committed to the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks with excellent accolades coming out of high school; per the Prep Baseball Report he owned the top rank for 3rd basemen in Nebraska, as well as top-ten overall (7th) in the state. Mike, much like many athletes across the country, missed out on seeing his stock rise even higher with the cancelation of his senior high school season. The two seasons prior, however, he was named to Class B First Team All-State honors as an integral member of the Hastings Tigers’ state runner-up and third place finishes, respectively.

When Mike isn’t playing baseball, he enjoys a nice round of disc golf. Although his senior season of high school ball was canceled, he was fortunate enough to play summer through July and August with a local American Legion as well as in the Expedition League with the Hasting Sodbusters. Boeve says he is excited to play with Huskies due to the high level of competition the Northwoods League brings. Playing in this league has always been a dream of his, and Duluth is a great opportunity to achieve that dream.
