Verona Little League was excited to welcom former UW-Stevens Point and minor league player Justin Jirshele to the hitting facility on February 9, 2017. Justin’s message was working hard to achieve what you want in the future. He also stressed and worked one on one with each player’s hitting stance, swing, and finish. The kids and coaches appreciated Justin’s time and expertise. In 2017, Coach Jirschele, at the age of 27, was the youngest manager in professional baseball for the Kannapolis Intimidators, the Chicago White Sox Single A affiliate team. Coach Jirschele’s older brother, Jeremy, is the head baseball coach at UW Stevens Point. His father, Mike, is the 3rd base coach for the Kansas City Royals.
