The Pioneers took second over in the conference, first in the Southern Division. Fisher, a sophomore, was named All-Midwest Conference (Southern Division) after leading the entire league in wins with seven (7-2 overall). He was fifth in both ERA (2.72) and batting average against (.255) for all MWC pitchers with more than 30 innings pitched.

Fisher's last victory was also Grinnell's last win, coming in an elimination game against MWC tournament host Ripon College (Wis.). Fisher gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits over seven innings.

It was the first time in the 20 years that Grinnell baseball coach Tim Hollibaugh had beaten Ripon.

Fisher is hoping to catch on with the Palo Alto Oaks this summer, along with former Palo Alto High standout Ozzie Braff.
