Even though Minnesota's COVID numbers are up, it's heartwarming to see the Huskies are being positive, and we may see a baseball game at Wade Stadium.

According to the Duluth Huskies website, Infielder Brett Paulsen will fill the second base spot for the team. He will travel 1300 miles from the Northwest to join the team. Paulsen started 13 games at base number two for Stony Brook University.

The Huskies say Paulsen comes from South Salem, New York, and originally was a top 500 prospect and sixth overall at shortstop before being converted to the second base for SBU.

The Huskies website goes on to say that Paulsen used to play for John Jay-Cross River. Had a .575 batting average, 26 RBI, and even 3 home runs. Brett tells the Huskies even though his college season was cut short he took advantage of a home gym and a make-shift batting cage so that he could stay in shape and stay sharp at the plate.

Paulsen told the Huskies that he had talked to SBU teammate Jared Milch who spent 2019 with the Huskies and gave them high remarks and told him of the great coaching staff, great fan atmosphere, and historic Wade Stadium. Milch came back an improved player and that was enough proof for Paulsen to commit to the team.
