Hoeft, Albrecht added to 2021 Woodchucks roster
For the Wausau Times
WAUSAU – The Woodchucks are adding more players from the Washington State Cougars to their 2021 roster. RHP Tyler Hoeft and catcher, Louie Albrecht will join their teammate, INF Kodie Kolden, in Wausau this summer.
Hoeft was a three-year letter winner at Milton High School in Washington where he was a two-time All-North Puget Sound League Selection. Tyler was rated the No. 11 overall 2020 prospect in Washington and sixth best RHP in the state by Prep Baseball Report. Tyler recently made his first career start for Washington State striking out two in three innings on the bump.
“Tyler is a young but very talented pitcher, as of late he has been throwing the baseball very well. Tyler is very athletic with a very high ceiling, Washington State thinks very highly of Tyler and I am very excited to see him on the mound this summer,” stated Woodchucks Head Coach Corey Thompson.
Originally from Renton, WA, Albrecht was a three-year letter winner at Kentridge High School. He earned All-North Puget Sound League after hitting .459 with 10 stolen bases as a junior. Louie was rated top catching prospect in the state and No. 29 overall prospect. Louie is hitting .200 and has recorded 19 putouts during his freshman season so far.
“I am very excited
about Louie this summer,” says Thompson. “He will be a great fit for us in our
catching core this summer. In my opinion the catching position is the most
important position on the field on teams I manage, and this kid can flat out
catch. Rated the number 1 catcher in the state of Washington coming out of high
school it is going to be very fun to watch Louie play this summer.”
The Wisconsin Woodchucks’ 2021 home opener is June 1.
