Continued: Reusse: New Prague baseball goes from one win to No. 1 seed

There was no whining over this on Saturday, but it does create different realities for Eden Prairie and for New Prague, with its class sizes of under 300.

“In this era of specialization, we need multi-sport athletes in New Prague or we’re not going to be able to compete,” Wetschka said. “For that to work, with the summer participation that now exists in all sports, there has to be cooperation among the coaches.

“At New Prague, we all get together and lay out the summer schedules to try to avoid too much conflict. I know when there’s a football camp at South Dakota State, a wrestling camp in Iowa, what’s on the hockey players’ schedule.”

Heinz has competed in football, baseball and wrestling (his future sport at Concordia in Moorhead). He is among a handful of three-sport seniors on this baseball team.

Three sports with today’s demands on preparation … what’s that do to the social life?

Heinz smiled and said: “My social life is practice.”
