Feature: What makes Tom Windle so good?

When it comes to Big Ten pitchers, it doesn’t get much better than Minnesota’s Tom Windle. A first-team All-Big Ten honoree, the southpaw led the Big Ten in strikeouts and twirled the conference’s lone solo no-hitter. What makes Windle so tough to hit? “I’m confident that I can get every batter out,” he told BTN.

The guys who know Windle best feel the same way. Minnesota catcher Kurt Schlangen said, “There’s no fear in him. He doesn’t care who’s hitting, he thinks he’s better than him.” And pitching coach Todd Oakes had huge praise: “He’s one of those (pitchers) that we call full-package guys.”
