Pat Kelly joined the Huskers this year after establishing himself as one of the top prep players in the state of Minnesota. The infielder has not disappointed as a true freshman at Nebraska, as he currently leads the entire Husker lineup with a .419 batting average. Through 16 games, he also has clubbed three doubles and three home runs, while driving in 13 runs. His on-base percentage currently sits at .468. Kelly attended Red Wing High School, where he helped lead his team to the 2011 Minnesota Conference Championship and its first winning season since 2007. As a senior, he posted a .436 batting average and five home runs on his way to being named one of seven finalists for the 2011 Minnesota Minute Men Mr. Baseball Award and an All-Metro selection by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Perfect Game USA ranked Kelly the No. 1 prospect in the state and All-Region 1st Team in 2011. During his three seasons for the Wingers, Kelly batted .442 with 13 home runs and 74 RBIs. Kelly will also bring summer baseball experience with him to Wisconsin Rapids, having previously spent two summers with the Ohio Warhawks—one of the top 18 and under programs in the country. He helped the team post a 40-4 record in 2010 and a 35-3 record in 2011, guiding the team on their way to their third and fourth consecutive national championships. Kelly is a native of Red Wing, Minnesota.
