7/16 Hinderks Signs With Joliet Jackhammers.
7/06 Hebrink Signed By the Redhawks,
Hinderks Released by the Goldeyes.
Hebrink was signed as a rookie infielder by the Redhawks. Earlier this year, he signed a three-day contract with the Schaumberg Flyers when they played in Winnipeg. Hebrink was signed due to a VISA mix-up with one of the Schaumberg players. After the Flyers played their three-game series in Winnipeg he was released.
Hebrink was a two-time NCAA All-Region player for the Cobbers, as well as being placed on the MIAC All-Conference team in both his junior and senior seasons. Hebrink set a new school record for home runs in a single season in 2004. He clouted 11 roundtrippers this season and finished with 30 on his career. Both are Concordia records. Hebrink also set a school record for RBI's in a career. He finished with 119 in his four years, surpassing Chris Coste's mark of 110.
Hinderks was released from the Goldeyes after posting a 1-4 record with a 4.99 ERA. He appeared in seven games. His most recent appearance was against the Redhawks when he gave up four runs in the first inning and was taken out of the game after not recording an out.
6/02 Jeremy Hinderks Pitches Another
Gem for the Goldeyes!
Hinderks, who was a two-time All-Region pitcher for Concordia, pitched eight strong innings against the Sioux Falls Canaries on Wednesday night. Hinderks allowed only two earned runs and struck out six in eight innings of work. He was pulled in the ninth inning for reliever Bobby Bystrowski with the Goldeyes leading 7-2. Bystrowski promptly gave up five runs in the inning and allowed the Canaries to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. Winnipeg found their composure and came up with three runs in the top of the tenth and then held on for the 10-7 victory.
In his eight innings, Hinderks gave up eight hits, walked three and struck out six. He now has a season ERA of 1.15, which is fifth best in the Northern League.

5/26 Jeremy Hinderks Blanks St. Paul
Saints in Major League Debut!
ST. PAUL, MN Ė Winnipeg rookie Jeremy Hinderks (Sr., Renville, Minn./R-C-W HS) sure knows how to make a good first impression Ė and ruin a Wednesday night. The Renville, MN native, who played for Division III Concordia (Moorhead) this spring, was spectacular in his pro debut, holding the St. Paul Saints to no runs over 7.2 innings as the Goldeyes took a 5-0 decision before 5,311 fans at Midway Stadium.
Hinderks allowed only two runners as far as third base as the Goldeyes won their second game in a row to improve to 3-4 on the young season. Minnetonka native Jake Whitney (0-1) pitched well but took the loss for St. Paul (4-2).
The Saints had an early threat with runners on first and third in the first inning but didnít score.
Pat Scalabriniís two-run homer in the sixth inning broke a scoreless tie and gave Hinderks all the run he would need. Winnipeg gave Hinderks some insurance in the eighth when they roughed up reliever Mark wells for two runs. Scalabrini was in the middle of that rally as well with a double that scored the gameís third run. Amaury Garcia had three hits and scored twice as well for Winnipeg.
The Saints made it interesting in the bottom of the eighth when they chased Hinderks and loaded the bases with two outs. Josh Renick led off with a walk. One out later, Adam Olow doubled to left to end Hinderksí night. Nick Gretz then worked reliever Marc Major for a walk. But Oscar Montero, who recorded his first save of the year, struck out Tonayne Brown to end the threat. Kazuhiro Kohno and Olow each had one of St. Paulís five hits to stretch their hitting streaks to six games each.

5/26 Three Cobbers Cap Careeers By Being
Named to the Midwest All-Region Teams.
The trio of senior players helped Concordia to a second place finish in the MIAC regular season and a berth in the four-team conference tournament. The postseason appearance was the third time in four years that the Cobbers have participated in the MIAC playoffs. Concordia finished the season 22-15 overall and 14-6 in the MIAC. The Cobbers finished the regular season by winning 15 of their last 18 games. At one point, Concordia was 0-3 in the league and 7-10 overall. Their midseason turnaround was sparked by a school-record 12-game winning streak. With their 22 overall wins, Concordia has won 46 games in the past two seasons, which is the third highest total in the MIAC during that time.
Earlier in the month Hinderks was named the MIAC Pitcher of the Year, becoming the first pitcher in school history to win MIAC Pitcher of the Year honors since the award was instituted in 1998. Hinderks also earned all-conference honors for the second consecutive season. He had another dominant year as the teamís number one starting pitcher. Hinderks posted an 8-5 overall record and finished the year with a 2.33 ERA. He led the team in wins, ERA and strikeouts (65). His 92.2 innings pitched during the entire year is a new school record for most innings pitched in a single season. He also finished his career with the second highest total in school history in innings pitched. Hinderks finished his four years with 217.1 innings pitches, second only to Howard Berglund's 225.2 innings. Hinderks also tied Berglund for most career wins. The pair both amassed 22 victories in their storied careers. Finally, Hinderks set a school record for most appearances in a career. His 55 total appearances broke the old school mark of 52 held by Derek Dormanen ('03).
Like Hinderks, Hebrink was also named to MIAC All-Conference Team for the second consecutive year. Hebrink set a new school record for home runs in a single season in 2004. He clouted 11 roundtrippers this season and finished with 30 on his career. Both are Concordia records. Hebrink also set a school record for RBI's in a career. He finished with 119 in his four years, surpassing Chris Coste's mark of 110.
He tied for the team lead in hits (38), home runs, total bases (80) and slugging percentage (.690). He was also second on the team in runs scored (28) and RBI's (30). He also tied with Hinderks for the team lead in saves (3). As a pitcher, he finished the season with a 1-0 record and a 4.22 ERA.
Kangas ends his Cobber career by being named to the all-region team after he collected all-conference honors for the first time in his career. He was the anchor of the team's defense as the starting catcher, a role he assumed early in the season. He ended up playing in 34 of the team's 36 games. He led the team in hitting with a .349 average. That mark is over 100 points higher from last season and up 75 points from his career average. He also led the team in RBI's (38) and finished tied for the lead in hits (38). Kangas was second in slugging percentage (.578), third in home runs (5) and total bases (63).
5/15 K.C. Solum Named to the MIAC Playoff
Solum hit .625 in Concordia's two games during the MIAC playoffs. He went 3-for-4 in the first game against Gustavus and then went 2-for-4 versus St. Olaf in the second game. Solum scored two runs and drove in another as the Cobbers struggled through two losses.
The award caps a career-best year for Solum. After winning the starting firstbaseman position early in the year, he proceeded to hit a four-year best .296. He finished the year fifth on the team in hitting, after averaging only .243 in his first three years in maroon and gold. He led the team in on-base percentage with a .486 average and set a school record for being hit by a pitch. Solum was "beaned" 19 times this season. That mark also led the MIAC.
