Prep Baseball Wisconsin Pitcher of the Week: Craig Kabat

In arguably one of the wildest games of the WIAA season, RHP Craig Kabat (Bay Port, 2024; Gonzaga commit) was a major influence in a combined no-hitter for Bay Port, as they defeated current No. 21 ranked Notre Dame Academy with a 1-0 final.

The pressure was on for Kabat, who presents himself at a strong 5-foot-10, 180-pound frame. The right-hander’s team was also being no-hit while facing another talent in RHP Avery Duncan (Notre Dame Academy, 2024; Dallas Baptist), making every moment that more impactful.

Kabat held strong though for his six innings of work before hitting his pitch count, as the Gonzaga signee struck out an impressive 13 batters against a team that went on to score 31 runs in the next four games.

The senior only walked three batters in his outing, and held onto his team’s one-run lead for the majority of the game before handing it off to the bullpen for the final frame. Bay Port’s pitching has now shutout four of the last five teams they have played against—getting hot at the right time as the WIAA season begins to wind down.
