Saints Go Local, Sign All-Midwest Region, All-MIAC, Sam Maus From St. Olaf

ST. PAUL, MN June 12, 2014

SAINTS GO LOCAL, SIGN ALL-MIDWEST REGION, ALL-MIAC, SAM MAUS FROM ST. OLAF

 

ST. PAUL, MN (June 12, 2014) – With the injuries piling up for the St. Paul Saints they tapped into the local talent pool and signed infielder Sam Maus, an All-Midwest Region 2nd Team and All-MIAC out of St. Olaf College.

 

            The 22-year-old Maus had an outstanding senior season with the Oles this year hitting .399 with six homers and 32 RBI while playing in all 40 games.  In 143 at bats he scored 47 runs, had 15 doubles, two triples and 11 stolen bases in 13 attempts.  He had an on base percentage of .491 and a slugging percentage of .657.  Maus led the team in average, hits (57), home runs and runs..  He began the season on a 13-game hitting streak and hit safely in 31 of 40 games.  His offensive production consisted of 16 multi-hit games, which included four three-hit games and three four-hit games.  Maus was one of two Oles to be named All-MIAC and was also selected to the 10-player All-Defensive Team with a .954 fielding percentage primarily playing the left side of the infield.  His impressive season got him named to the American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings NCAA Division III All-Midwest Region Team and All-MIAC.

 

            In his four seasons at St. Olaf, Maus started all 153 games the Oles played during that time and he hit over .300 in three of the four years.

 

            Maus went to Northfield High School and was a three-time letter winner in basketball and football and a four-time letter winner in baseball.  He was All-Region his senior year, All-Conference his junior and senior season and All-Conference Honorable mention in his sophomore season in baseball.  In football he was All-Conference during his junior season.

 

            The Saints placed infielder Brandon Wikoff on the inactive list with an injured wrist and released pitcher Chase Hentges who was 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA.

 

            The Saints roster is currently at 21 players, one less than the league maximum of 22, 10 pitchers and 11 position players.
