WAUSAU (WAOW) - Wisconsin Woodchucks all-star Brandon King will not return to Wausau after the Northwoods League All-Star Game in Eau Claire on Tuesday. King is leaving summer ball to enroll at his new college, Oral Roberts University. He played at Fresno City College the past 2 seasons. It's a big loss for the Chucks. At the break, King owns or shares the team lead in batting average, hits, homeruns, RBI, and doubles.
His departure comes just a week after outfielder Ryan Fleming left the squad to join Team Canada for the World University Games.
