I tried at the last minute to learn about Corey Tauer’s college career for Saturday’s paper, but it wasn’t an easy task given that Wisconsin-Eau Claire eliminated its baseball program after his senior year.
Thanks to Kevin Meinholz, the UW-Eau Claire sports information director, I learned the following information about Tauer today:
- He was a four year UW-Eau Claire letterman (1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995)
- All-Conference in 1995
- All-Conference Honorable Mention in 1994
- As a senior he led the Wisconsin State University Conference (the precursor to the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) in batting, hitting .513 (39-for-76)
- Additional totals from his senior season: 27 runs, 21 RBI, seven doubles, one triple, four home runs
- He hit .377 as a junior and ranked No. 13 in the Northern Division of the WSUC
