Multi-sport athlete commits to play catcher, outfield for Minnesota

If the chance ever came, Troy Traxler knew he would pounce on it like a fastball right down the middle of the plate.

So when University of Minnesota baseball coach John Anderson offered Traxler a baseball scholarship on Sunday, the talented multi-sport athlete from La Crescent High School jumped at it. His dream to become a Golden Gopher had become a reality. He gave Anderson a verbal commitment before leaving Minneapolis.
