Baseball league forgets Todder
March 28, 2012 - Burt Angeli
The Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) all-time baseball team was announced this week.
Like many of you out there, I also wondered “Where’s Todder?”
Channing’s Todder Lindeman, well known for a lethal bat in the local Wishigan League, also wreaked havoc on WIAC opponents for UW-Oshkosh. It’s hard to believe Todder didn’t join the list with Bob Wickman, Jarrod Washburn, Jim Gantner and Jerry Augustine.
WIAC Commissioner Gary Karner likely realizes more than one person will complain with Todder omitted. Karner, according to the WIAC Web site, “remarked that this has been an extremely difficult process given the 100-year span and incomparable success the conference has experienced in most of its sports.
“Karner noted that in some sports, even achieving All-American status didn’t necessarily guarantee an athlete a spot on the team. He also acknowledged that while disagreement is inherent and expected whenever there is a selection of an all-time anything (be it a team, restaurant or movie), the conference nonetheless felt it important to recognize student-athletes and coaches who have contributed to the success of the most accomplished Division III conference in NCAA history.”
It may be difficult to pick an all-time team but it’s hard to believe Todder wasn’t named.
