For the Wausau Times
WAUSAU – The Woodchucks are continuing to build their 2021 roster with the addition of Jose Izarra from the University of Miami and Tyler Kehoe from Northwest Florida.
Izarra was a four-year varsity baseball player for Miami Christian where he hit .358 with seven doubles, three triples and five homers in his career. He earned all-district honors in 2017, 2018 and 2020, and was named a second-team All-American in 2018.
Woodchucks Head Coach Corey Thompson said, “I am very excited about this young guy, Jose is a highly touted player from south Florida. Baseball is in this kid’s blood and I can’t wait to see him play all summer. Jose is coming to us from one of the best programs in college baseball in Miami, his work ethic, and character will reflect that as well.”
Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Kehoe was a four-year pitcher and outfielder for Archbishop Carroll where he batted a career .390 average. He was named to the 2019 All-Catholic and All-Delco teams and earned all-city and All-Southeast Region honors. Kehoe was ranked the No. 40 outfielder in the country and No. 6 prospect in Pennsylvania by Perfect Game. After a shortened 2020 season at University of North Carolina, Tyler brought his talents to Northwest Florida for the 2021 season. He is currently batting .313 with 19 RBIS and two homers.
“Tyler is a very dynamic player,” Thompson said.“I look forward to seeing what all he brings to the table. Tyler is coming to us from a very successful program in Northwest Florida, I know he will be prepared and succeed with us this summer”
The Wisconsin Woodchucks’ 2021 home opener is June 1.
