The Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference was one of two Division III leagues that used wood bats in all its games this season. The results were dramatic for the nation's top team, Wisconsin-Oshkosh, which posted a 1.01 ERA on its way to a 31-1 record. The school's pitching staff is so dominant that 6-foot-3, 195-pound LHP Jack Taschner, the state's top pro prospect, is only the No. 3 starter in the rotation. Taschner has kept his record intact of never losing a collegiate game. Of more importance to scouts, he has a fresh arm. He was an outfielder in high school and has thrown little more than 100 innings in his collegiate career. Mechanically, he compares to Jarrod Washburn, a second-round pick out of the same school in 1995, but is further ahead because he has a better breaking ball. Taschner's fastball touches 92 mph; he often struggles with command.
