Fresh off a trip from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II World Series in Millington, TN with the Madison Area Technical College Wolf Pack, utility man Craig Nyborg will now wear a Mallards uniform the team announced Wednesday. Nyborg led MATC in 2005 with six home runs, 51 runs scored and 50 runs batted in. He batted .333 for the MATC team, which appeared in its first NJCAA World Series since moving up to Division II in 2000.

The MATC and former Wayne High School standout will be reunited with Mallards Head Coach C.J. Thieleke, Nyborg’s Assistant Coach at MATC.

“It will be great to add a hardnosed player that I’m familiar with to the team,” Thieleke said. “I expect Craig to be a leader both on and off the field.”

The Mallards are part of a collegiate summer league that started their franchise in 1995. They play their home games at the Duck Pond in Warner Park in Madison, Wisconsin and they draw over 5000 fans per game.

Nyborg and his new teammates opened up the 2005 season, Wednesday, June 1, 2005 with a 4-1 victory over the Mankato Moon Dogs from Minnesota.
