Huskies Sign Carson Husmann of Bradley University for 2021
The Brave Outfielder saw action in an abbreviated 10-game season in 2020
Duluth, Minn.- Carson Husmann has agreed to call Wade Stadium home in 2021. The Hanna, Indiana native joins the Huskies after appearing in seven games as a freshman at Bradley University before the season was cut short due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic; batting a .263 with four extra base hits-two doubles and two home runs-to go along with five RBIs, per the Bradley Braves official website. On February 16th, 2020-just over one year ago-Carson collected his first collegiate hit: a 2-run, pinch-hit home run at the University of the Incarnate Word. A true hitter, Husmann drove in 112 runs to go with 31 home runs in 100 career games at South Central High School.
Carson says he chose the Huskies because of their winning pedigree in a competitive league, as well as wanting to come somewhere he has never been before. Taking advantage of an extended off-season, Husmann spent time in the weight room and getting some individual work in. He played in the San Diego League for a full summer season prior to heading to school at Bradley University in 2020. The middle child in a house of three boys, Carson grew up playing catch in the yard, attending his brothers’ games as well as his own, and spending plenty of time watching the Cubs at Wrigley Field. When he is not consumed in baseball, he enjoys golfing, hunting, playing basketball, and lifting weights.
