Professional Titans

The UW-Oshkosh baseball program has long been a producer of professional talent. In fact, 52 former UW-Oshkosh baseball stars have gone on to sign professional contracts, including 16 since 1995.

Major League Baseball began its draft of amateur players in 1956. Since then, 35 UW-Oshkosh baseball players have been selected, including six in the second round. In 1999, UW-Oshkosh became the first NCAA Division III school to have five players drafted from the same school in the same year.
