#2 Jalen Knuteson
Walk-up Song: Must Be Doin' Something Right by Billy Currington
Most Memorable Baseball Moment: When Ted Williams played on the last day of the season despite having pink eye and a .39995 batting average. Instead of sitting out and keeping his .400 batting average, he played, went 5-for-6 and increased his average to .406. Helluva guy.

Favorite Baseball Quote:  "The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again." -Field of Dreams

#36 Kory Ryan
Walk-up Song: Before I Forget by Slipknot
Most Memorable Baseball Moment: Hitting the game winning HR into the creek behind the left field fence against Monona at home in the bottom of the ninth, in what I believe was my second or third season at Poynette. We had Bruce Krigbaum as our 3rd base coach that season and he was just as happy as I was.
