Herman Lensing- GREENWALD-* ***


Amateur baseball has been a part of Herman’s life for as long as he can remember. Baseball with the Greenwald legion team was the highest level he

ever played, but his family members played for area amateur teams in Stearns County with his love of the game coming as a spectator.

Herman graduated from Crosier Seminary High School in 1973 and later earned a degree in journalism from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and then returned to Minnesota.

An accidental discovery of a report on a game his father played got him interested in the stats and history of the game and he started writing about it.  In the 1980s, he wrote free-lance articles on the Stearns County League that appeared in the Melrose Beacon, Sauk Centre Herald and Paynesville Press. For two years, Herman hosted a weekly broadcast of the Stearns County League on KASM radio. Herman was hired by the Melrose Beacon and Stearns Morrison Enterprise, continuing to cover Stearns County and later the Victory League. He worked full-time for Larson Publications and Star Publications, collecting stats on players and teams.  While with those papers he worked on the publication of the annual Amateur Baseball Guide.

Herman’s strong religious beliefs have led to many volunteer activities in his community.  He has served as a CCD teacher, lector, usher and Eucharistic minister for St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Greenwald and is a member of the One-In-Faith Area Catholic Community Pastoral Council.

While never getting a hit, calling a player out, or making a game-winning decision, Herman has done a great job watching and telling the stories of those who do.
