News - Swedish Baseball Leagues Comments Off on Karlskoga Bats bring in new Catcher Kirk Haviland


by Karlskoga Bats

The 2012 Swedish Champions, Karlskog Bats have signed a 3rd import player in catcher Kirk Haviland. Kirk is like the two other new players Shawn Hetherington and Aaron Dunsmore from Canada.

Kirk Haviland played three years as a starting catcher in NCCA Division 2-college University of Wisconsin Parkside. Kirk is described as a good defensive catcher and a plus hitter. At Parkside Kirk owns a career average of .283 with 19 doubles, two homeruns and 49 RBI’s in 120 games. He played two summers in the Canadian summer ball league Western Major Baseball League (WMBL), where he showed power hitting nine home runs to go with 50 runs batted in. Kirk made the league’s All-star team. WMBL consists mostly of college players from the US and Bats player Paul Waterman and the other two newcomers Shawn Hetherington and Aaron Dunsomore have played there in the past.

Kirk is a catcher, but also has experience from playing infield and pitching.

Today Kirk plays winter-ball in Adelaide, Australia. Karlskoga is now satisfied with the roster but will keep the door open for Kenta Sato if he decides to spend another summer in Sweden. Additionally Karlskoga hope to present a new Swedish player within a few weeks.
