Ohio Monarchs Gold outfielder/shortstop Casey Winckowski doesn't have any

problem having fun on the baseball diamond.

“He's a character,” Monarchs manager Ed Mouch said. “He kind of keeps everybody loose, but when it comes down to playing, he plays as hard as anybody. He just has a good time playing.”

Winckowski, a 2007 Clay grad, is in his third season with the Gold team, which will compete in the NABF College World Series Aug. 5-8 at various sites around Toledo. The Gold won the 2008 NABF World Series title and reached the semifinals last season.

“I don't see any reason why we shouldn't win it all,” Winckowski said. “Not to sound like a big shot, but we won it two years ago and this team all-around is just better than that team. When we won it our freshman year, we were splitting every series on the weekends and losing here and there. This year we're going 4-0 on weekends and we're shocked when we lose. I think this team is better than when we won it two years ago.”
