The Shoreview, MN native and former North Dakota State University outfielder went 14-34 last week with nine runs, four RBIs, six doubles, two triples and five stolen bases and is now batting .346 on the year. “Tim has been an impact player for us since he arrived here,” RedHawks manager Michael Schalct said. “He plays hard on both offense and defense and truly loves the game…we’re proud of Tim and all of his hard work is paying off."
