MLB Players from Wisconsin

There are ten active major leaguers from Wisconsin, according to Baseball Almanac. Jordan Zimmermann, Pat Neshek, and Vinny Rottino are among the familiar names.

Jordan Zimmermann

Jordan Zimmermann was born in 1986 in a very small town: Auburndale, Wisconsin. He played baseball at Auburndale High School, transitioning from catcher to pitcher. He was also involved with American Legion baseball; his team was the Blue Devils Post 54 – and they are so proud of him, they have since retired his number.

Zimmermann later played for the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point. He also played in the Northwoods League. He was drafted in the 2nd round in 2007. Vermont, Potomac, and Harrisburg were among his minor league teams.

He made his major league debut in April of 2009 at age 22. In 2013, he was an All-Star.

Pat Neshek

Pat Neshek was born in 1980 in Madison. Long before he was a Minnesota Twin, he enjoyed watching the Twins. Of course, he also enjoyed playing baseball! He was in Little League as a child.

Neshek played shortstop at Park Center High School. He also played in a winter league in high school. He went to pro tryout camps the summer before his senior year. He is known for his unique style; he became a sidearmer after an injury.

Neshek opted to play baseball at Butler University. He also spent a summer playing in the Cape Cod League and a summer playing in the Northwoods League. He was selected by the Twins in the 6th round of the 2002 draft. (They had drafted him in the 46th round a few years earlier, but he opted for college.)

Neshek worked his way up through the Twins farm system, playing for Elizabethton, Quad Cities, Fort Myers, New Britain, and Rochester. He also played in the Arizona Fall League. He made his major league debut in 2006.

Neshek has signed a lot of baseball cards – and collected a lot of them. He uses his website to add cards to his collection and help others out with theirs ( He has also given people a look at what life is like for a pro ball player!

Tomorrow’s Ball Players

Tomorrow's ball players are out there on the field playing... and learning. Not everyone who’s on a youth team aspires to the majors. For many, youth leagues are about having fun, making skills, and enjoying a little healthy competition. Zimmerman has said, “"It means a lot to have played Legion Baseball; it taught me how to compete, and I had a good time meeting kids from around the area ("

The serious ball player can take advice from Neshek. Neshek has said he doesn't think he was the most skilled player at any level (including Little League). He did better mentally than many. He is a student of the game: analytical about his pitching, observant of those he will be up against. But a big part of his success has been his mental attitude. "Just by the fact you are playing every day means you are going to have major ups and downs,” he noted. “…The ones who do the best know how to handle everything: when they are doing great, they stay humble, and when they are doing badly, they understand that it's just bad luck and things will turn around if they continue to work hard (” He has said that in order to be ready for the next day, you need to remember it’s just a game.

It can be a great game, though. “You can always get better and that’s what makes baseball awesome,” he said (
