Former Major League infielder Joe Randa returned to Kettle Moraine High School on Dec. 20 to host his second-annual winter skills camp for the Kettle Moraine Junior Lasers and the high school program.
After helping Kettle Moraine to the 1988 WIAA state championship, Randa spent 12 seasons in the Major Leagues playing for the Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds and San Diego Padres. Randa finished with 1,543 career hits and a .284 career batting average in 1,522 big-league games.
Randa was joined by former Major League pitcher and current Kansas City Royals bullpen coach Doug Henry and Dean Freeland, the first Kettle Moraine product to play professional baseball.
Here are a few pictures from the event:

The Kettle Moraine baseball program is happy to announce Jim Wilkinson as its new varsity head coach. Wilkinson replaces Brian Adamczyk, who led the Lasers to conference championships in 2012 and 2013 but stepped down as head coach following last season.
Wilkinson compiled a 281-124 record in 11 seasons as head coach at Marquette University High School, winning state championships in 2006 and 2008 (over Kettle Moraine) and finishing as state runner-up in 2009.
