Cutler Schmidt RHP / West Bend East, WI / 2024

West Bend East has been one of the more productive teams in the state so far, already off to a 5-0 start this season. RHP/UTIL Cutler Schmidt (2024) has been a huge part of their early success and he has earned our Prep Baseball Wisconsin ‘Pitcher of the Week’ honors because of it.

In his lone start of the weather impacted start of the spring, Schmidt was flat-out dominant in a win over New Holstein last Friday. Schmidt went the distance in that run-rule victory, striking out 10 batters in his six innings of work. He allowed just one hit and failed to allow a free base, on just 74 pitches.

While he did win this ‘Pitcher of the Week’ award for his stellar work on the mound alone, it is worth mentioning that he has been a threat with the bat, too. He tallied eight hits in his 14 at-bats in the first two weeks of the season, six of those going for extra-bases, and he drove in six RBIs while also scoring 10.

Schmidt has continued to his strong start to the season early on into Week 3, as he is coming off another six inning performance against Grafton on Monday, where he added five more strikeouts to his season total.
