Fond du Lac Cardinals baseball heads to state tournament – ‘Holy snickercats!’

Just one phrase came to mind when Fond du Lac senior shortstop and pitcher Caden Krug discussed the ups and downs of the Cardinals’ 13-12 baseball season, which is culminating with a trip to the WIAA state tournament in Appleton.

“Holy snickercats!” It’s a phrase that Marty Paulsen, the Fond du Lac baseball coach of 51 years, invented, and it has stuck. When people ask him what a snickercat is, he tells them to Google it. But they’re not going to find anything. The last time Fond du Lac won the state title in 2000, a local TV station came up to Paulsen, stuck a microphone in his face and asked how we was feeling. “I said, ‘Holy snickercats. It’s unbelievable,’” Paulsen recalled. He got asked the same question after Fond du Lac’s 7-3 sectional final win over Sheboygan North. “It just came right back to me. I’ve got to say it again because it worked last time,” Paulsen said. Paulsen, who started with the baseball program in 1969, said that this season was one of the most fun he’s been able to coach. He said that even before the postseason in the midst of the Cardinals’ losing record.

Fond du Lac finished eighth in the Fox Valley Association with a record of 6-11. Heading into the postseason, they were seeded No. 8 but ended up defeating top-seeded Manitowoc Lincoln and No. 5 West Bend West.

“I think we faced some of the best competition in the state,” senior second baseman and pitcher Sam Hernandez said. “Throughout the FVA, the FVA is a very competitive conference. I think one of the best in the state. Being able to just go regular season playing with those teams, it really gives you good experience into playoffs.” Mother Nature did not serve the Cardinals well this season. They faced many canceled and rescheduled games due to rainy spring weather. Paulsen said that impacted their postseason seeding. They also began the regular season with several one-run losses. In mid-April, they lost to Appleton West 5-4, then Oshkosh West 4-3 and then Neenah 3-2. “The combination is the kids were making adjustments, and we got a bit more aggressive at the plate,” Paulsen said of their late run.  “As I tell the kids, the only way you can get a hit is to swing the bat. I think they were a little bit hesitant at first.” It’s been a roller coaster, Krug said. Though the Cardinals struggled at the plate earlier in the season, pitching has always been the team’s greatest strength. The team’s ERA is hovering between 2.00 and 2.50, he said. “I think our pitching helped us a lot and helped us to get our bats going, because we needed to actually hit the ball to win games,” Krug said.

The Cardinals begin the state tournament at 1 p.m. Tuesday, taking on Brookfield East in the Division 1 quarterfinals.

Brookfield East boasts an 18-8 record, winning their sectional final 3-2 against Menomonee Falls. “They have a real solid pitching staff. We’re going to have to be aggressive at the plate,” Paulsen said. “It’s just like anything else. We’ve got to field the ball, and we have to pitch the ball well. We can’t make errors.” “We expect that they’re going to bring it,” Krug said. “I think it’ll be a great matchup.” And there’s just one more thing the Cardinals will have to play for — win No. 600 for their coach. Paulsen sits at 599 wins.  “He means a lot to us. He’s almost like a grandfather to us kids,” Hernandez said. “He’s one of the best in the state. He knows what he’s doing,” Krug added. But Paulsen isn’t really thinking of that. The goal is another state title. And if you’re wondering what his response would be, just remember his catchphrase.

“Holy snickercats!”
