WAUSAU – The Wisconsin Woodchucks have added two players from Indiana State University as the team continues to round out its roster for the 2021 season.
Infielder Jordan Schaffer is off to a great start this spring, batting .260 with 19 hits, eight RBI and two doubles, the Woodchucks said in a news release.

Originally from Columbus, Indiana, Cole Gilley, a right-handed pitcher, lettered in baseball at Columbus East High School. During his senior year at Columbus East Gilley went 7-1 with a 2.13 ERA, which helped lead the team to their first state championship game appearance. He also batted .336 and was second on the team with 26 RBIs.
The Woodchucks’ home opener is June 1.
