    WALT NELSON WAS A GREAT PITCHER IN MINNESOTA . I PITCHED WITH WALT AT THE END OF HIS CAREER BUT WATCHED EVERY GAME HE THREW . BEATING WHITAKER BUICK , 7UP , PETER’S MEATS ,ETC. HE REALLY DESERVES THIS HONOR. THERE ARE ALOT OF FORMER team pkayers I THINK WOULD BE DESERVING OF THIS HONOR LIKEDAVE AND DON AMY TOM SAWNSON , TOM ‘ weed “NIEAKORN sure the spelling not right on that. I looked up to walt and he gave me a chance to pitch along side of him at a very young age. go WALT NELSON TO THE SOFTBALL HALL OF FAME !

    Hi Bob, great input. I remember Niederkorn, and believe I also played against the Swansons. Played in Red Wing, if I remember right.

    I pitched against him while he was playing for Loesch’s. I also heard that he did some pitching, but never saw him pitch. I also remember my catcher, Larry Erickson, on the R&R Bar team of Hampton telling me to be pitch him very carefully. I consider myself fortunate to have played in the era of the 1960s to 90s.
