Menomonie (WQOW) -- There might still be snow on the ground in Menomonie, but the UW-Stout baseball team is already 15 games into its season.
The Blue Devils are 6-9 on the young season, but Stout has faced some tough teams during its non-conference season, including the Minnesota Twins Rookie League team. Head coach Toby Gardenhire says that experience will help Stout when the WIAC season begins.
"I think our conference is as tough as it gets probably in the whole country," says Gardenhire. "So when we went down on our spring trip that's what I wanted. I wanted to play teams that were similar to the teams that we play up here, and that's what we got you know, and we played them all well, so I think that's going to do nothing but help us going into these games"
