Nordquist Continues Baseball Career in Austria

PAINESVILLE, OHIO -- Recent Lake Erie College graduate and former Storm baseball player Logan Nordquist (Alliance, Ohio/Alliance) is continuing his baseball career this summer and recently made his post-college debut.  However, Nordquist is playing America's pastime an ocean away as a member of the Attnang-Puchheim Athletics in the Austrian Baseball League. 

Nordquist made his debut for the Athletics June 22, his first pitching appearance in a game since the 2013 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament in early May.  He allowed four runs in five innings in a 7-6 loss to the Vienna Metro Stars, the top offensive team in the league.

"I only had four days between traveling to Austria and pitching, so I was a little rusty," Nordquist told Storm head coach Brian McGee.  "but it's been a great experience so far."
